Tessa Thompson spoke in an open interview for the first time on Friday about her sexuality and her much-discussed relationship with singer and actress Janelle Monáe
In a cover story in the magazine Porter, a publication by luxury retailer Net -a-Porter Actress "Dear White People" and "Thor: Ragnarok" said she and Monáe "love each other deeply". However, she did not stop her relationship with a label.
"We are so close to vibrating on the same frequency," Thompson explained. "If people want to speculate about who we are, it does not bother me."
The presumption of the media about the relationship between Thompson and Monáe has been widespread for some time. In February, Monáe appeared to blur the rumors in the music video for "Make Me Feel," an excerpt from her latest album, "Dirty Computer." This clip, which was interpreted as a musical celebration of bisexuality, showed scenes from The two women dance suggestively in a nightclub.
Thompson also said she was "attracted to men and women."
"I can take things for granted ̵
She and Monáe described themselves as "only really private people," she added, "I want everyone else to do it, have the freedom and support that I have from my loved ones, but not so many people. Do I have a responsibility to talk about it? Am I responsible in public speaking for saying that this is my person? "
Thompson's remarks come just weeks after Monáe emerged queer in a Rolling Stone cover story. At the time, Monáe told the journal that she identifies with aspects of pan-sexuality and bisexuality.
"To be a queer black woman in America – someone who had relationships with men and women – I consider myself as a permissive motherfucker," she said.
Although Monáe was initially identified as bisexual, she added, "Later, I read about pansexuality and said, 'Oh, those are things that I identify with.'
Elsewhere In the Porter interview, Thompson Monáe wrote "help people and probably save a few lives" by coming out.
"I get text messages from friends who are like this:" Would you please let Janelle know that I'm because of her came to my family? "she said.
