R&B singer Janelle Monae says she might be dating a lesbian android.

One thing for certain, the 25-year-old Kansas City native is not giving straight answers about her personal life.

During an interview with UK daily the Evening Standard, Monae said she beat the odds to get to where she's at.

“Statistics would say that I'm not supposed to be where I am today … Neither one of my parents had college degrees, but they really pushed and designed me to be better than them … I think about that Janelle [her Kansas self] and how blessed she is. She can't let herself and her community down.”

When asked about the rumors that she's a lesbian, Monae said, “I only date androids,” a reference to her musical lyrics found in Metropolis: Suite 1 and The ArchAndroid.

“That's great, they can claim me as well as the straight community, as well as androids,” she said. “I speak about androids because I think the android represents the new 'other.' You can compare it to being a lesbian or being a gay man or being a black woman … What I want is for people who feel oppressed or feel like the 'other' to connect with the music and to feel like, 'She represents who I am.'”

She adds that she'll talk about her sexual orientation “in due time.”

“[W]hen I'm ready to have a family and be out in the public with my family.”
