Speaking to the New York Times, Monae revealed, "I'm a girl's girl, meaning I support women no matter what they choose to do. I'm proud when everybody is taking agency over their image and their bodies."

Pressed about her real-life relationship with Thompson, the singer only said: "I hope people feel celebrated. I hope they feel love. I hope they feel seen."
