Pop singer Janelle Monae came out as bisexual last year, to much fanfare.

And on Monday night, she appeared to be "hooking up" with popular actress Lupita N'yongo.

The two ladies were seen looking very comfortable at the Met Gala Gucci afterparty. And one video showed Janelle being extra touchy feely with the Black Panther star.

Both women appeared to be intoxicated, and very friendly.

Janelle can be seen in the video whispering in Lupta's ear, while caressing her face and hair. And Lupita seems to be smiling and enjoying Janelle's sensual touches.


Janelle Monae spoke out about her sexuality last year in Rolling Stone magazine. She explained, "Being a queer black woman in America, someone who has been in relationships with both men and women, I consider myself to be a free-ass motherf--ker."

Janelle told the mag she identified as pansexual after reading about the subject.

According to GLAAD pansexuals have the capability of attraction to others regardless of their gender identity or biological sex. A pansexual could be open to someone who is male, female, transgender, intersex, or agendered/genderqueer.

In other Janelle news, reports say that she plans to, "repurpose a problematic Disney song from Lady and the Tramp for the upcoming live action version of the film about two star-crossed pups.

Disney announced that it would stream its content on a new streaming service set to launch in mid-November. A live action Lady and the Tramp will premiere exclusively on Disney+ shortly thereafter.

Upon announcing the live action film, it also confirmed to Variety that Janelle Monáe, who also voices one of the characters, would rewrite the "Siamese Cat Song" to rid itself of the brand's at times racist past."
