I tend to agree with this statement, but that doesn't mean I don't like her. She seems lovely and sweet. I'm glad she's come out. Good for her.

Not into her music, but I dig her frankness. Good for her and her girlfriend.

lol I think he knew she was bisexual honestly. givin' them what they love (with him on it) has her singing about a woman in the end and also queen. In Janelle's music there were already lyrics about her liking both men and women before this album and he knew her personally so I suspect he knew.

biggrin He sure seems to have done, with all the speculation about Andy and others flying around on LSA currently

But yeah, he must have known about Janelle.

Andy is bisexual too? Maybe it was required to enter in his circle. lol

i completely agree...her music is bland, she's cute, but she has an awkward presence about her.. better off as an actress, than a musician, from what ive seen of her acting and heard from her "singing"

Hard for me to gauge that especially considering the conservative bent he took on in later years.
Free your mind your ass will follow.

Good for her. Given the majority of her audience are african american though, her sexual orientation will unfortunately have more impact on her album sales than she wanted it to... Frank Ocean got to ride the mainstream wave for a brief amount of time but look what eventually happened to him.

A lot of her fans are gay though or very open minded. His not so much and people are not that hard on bisexual women as they are with bi/gay men, especially black men.

Because she is simply everywhere right now, and I feel I have to participate in the discussion. I didn't start the thread though.
