Singer Janelle Monáe has come out as pansexual. 

In an interview with Rolling Stone Thursday, the Tightrope singer revealed what genders she has dated and clarified how she identifies.

"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-(love proponent)" she told the magazine. "But then later I read about pansexuality and was like, ‘Oh, these are things that I identify with too.' I'm open to learning more about who I am."
