The performer continued: ‘Fully honoring the present. Thank you to my loved ones for planning such a magical experience + each of them adorning my body with temp tats so I could have a bday suit that matched how I felt.’

In the recording, the I Like That hitmaker sported a black and beige patterned maxi skirt and temporary gold tattoos across her breasts and chest area. 

As she faced the sea in the darkness, Monáe watched a gorgeous firework show and appeared at ease while swaying with her arms in the air.

Her celebration comes eight months after coming out as nonbinary on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk.

Janelle – who uses they/them and she/her – said: ‘I’m nonbinary, so I just don’t see myself as a woman solely. I feel all of my energy. 

‘I feel like God is so much bigger than the “he” or the “she.” And if I am from God, I am everything. I am everything. But I will always, always stand with women. I will always stand with Black women. But I just see everything that I am. Beyond the binary.’

Monae is no stranger to being open publicly regarding their gender identity as the artist came out as pansexual in an interview with Rolling Stone back in April 2018.

‘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****r,’ they said.

While the Wondaland Arts Society CEO initially identified as bisexual, they discovered a more apt term through further research.

A personal who is bisexual is someone who is sexually attracted to both men and women, however pansexuality is more open and diverse; someone who is pansexual does not limit their sexual choices based on gender, gender identity, or biological sex.

‘Later I read about pansexuality and was like, “Oh, these are things that I identify with too,”‘ Monae said. ‘I’m open to learning more about who I am.’

Her massive on-and-off stage persona had been created due in part to protect the petite songstress.

‘It had to do with the fear of being judged,’ they said. ‘All I saw was that I was supposed to look a certain way coming into this industry, and I felt like I [didn’t] look like a stereotypical black female artist.’

In January 2020, Monae had tweeted out the hashtag #IAmNonbinary which lead fans to believe they were coming out as nonbinary, however, they later clarified to The Cut, at the time, that it was just a show of support to the community to bring awareness and visibility.

Monae explained at the time: ‘I tweeted the #IAmNonbinary hashtag in support of Nonbinary Day and to bring more awareness to the community.

‘I retweeted the Steven Universe meme “Are you a boy or a girl? I’m an experience” because it resonated with me, especially as someone who has pushed boundaries of gender since the beginning of my career. I feel my feminine energy, my masculine energy, and energy I can’t even explain.’
