Janelle Monae and Tessa Thompson are the center of a storm of romance rumors.
Tessa expressed pride in having worked with Janelle, including on the music video for the latter's song Pynk, released this April.
At one point in the video, Janelle models a pair of trousers meant to look like a large vagina - and Tessa places herself in the middle of them, grinning.
'I get text messages from friends that are like: "Would you please let Janelle know I came out to my family because of her?" I think that work is really helping people and probably saving some lives,' said Tessa.
