She has been nominated for eight Grammys, and in 2010 she won an MTV Video Music Award and the ASCAP Vanguard Award. In 2015, Monáe was given the Billboard Women in Music Rising Star Award, and in 2018, she was given the Trailblazer of the Year Award. In honor of her art and activism, the Boston City Council made October 16, 2013 “Janelle Monáe Day.” She has contracts with both Atlantic Records and her own label, the Wondaland Arts Society.
Janelle Monae is well-known not only for her artistic accomplishments but also for her fascinating romantic history. Here’s everything you need to know about the pretty girl’s past relationships.
During the recording sessions for her album “Dirty Computer” in 2021, Monáe met and began dating fellow musician and composer Nate Wonder. Wonder and Monáe have been friends and collaborators for a long time, but a trip on a yacht to Cabo in April 2021 seems to have brought about some changes.
On board the yacht, the singer was seen passionately kissing Wonder while wearing a black and white one-piece swimsuit. Wonder and Monáe are also both interested in fashion and have unique, classy styles.
Wonder has also written songs with Big Bo and Roman GianArthur. He has been up for several awards, including the Soul Train Music Awards and the Ashford & Simpson Songwriter’s Award.
Wonder made the music for the movie “Antebellum,” in which Monáe had her first leading role. Beautiful music has been created by Wonder and Monáe, but rumors of a love relationship between the two have not been confirmed.
One of the most well-known rumors about Janelle is that she is dating Men in Black 4 actress Tessa Thompson, 39. When Tessa was in Janelle’s music video “Make Me Feel” in 2018, people started to think they were dating. Janelle and the 39-year-old had a lot of chemistry on-screen in the famous video, and fans quickly started to think they were dating.
Even though the two had clear chemistry in the music video, Tessa later talked to Net-A-Porter in June 2018 about whether or not they were dating. She said at the time, “It’s hard because Janelle and I are both very private people. We’re both trying to figure out how to balance wanting privacy and space with wanting to use your platform and influence.” Tessa told Janelle she loved her, but she didn’t say for sure that they were dating. “We really love each other. She said, “We’re so close that we vibrate at the same frequency. If people want to guess what we are, that’s fine. I’m not bothered by it.”
Janelle also had a relationship with British race car driver Lewis Hamilton, who is 38 years old. TMZ said that the professional driver and Janelle were seen together in 2015 after they both got turned down at a fashion show in Paris.
Lewis and the person who was his leader at the time tried to get into the Stella McCartney show, but they were turned away because they were late. Later, in October 2015, Janelle retweeted a picture of herself with model Suki Waterhouse, 31, and Lewis.
