Lupita Nyong’o and Janelle Monáe Spotted Canoodling

Celesbian news alert.

I’m not saying that Lupita Nyong’o and Janelle Monáe should date, but, um, have you SEEN their chemistry? Elaine Welteroth, Teen Vogue’s former editor in chief, captured the pair canoodling in the background of her Instagram story yesterday. Twitter account @liloufairy saved and uploaded the evidence, and the internet is losing its mind. See for yourself below:

My eyes just dilated. I am obsessed with them together. While it is utterly unclear whether this is a lesbian moment or a close friend moment, this is going down in major celesbian news. The plot thickens with Monáe’s SUPPOSED ex, Tessa Thompson, getting a little flirty on her own Twitter account.

Echoing @her_rituals, this is indeed true lesbian tea. Just like Monáe and Thompson hardly defined their relationship, they haven’t defined their breakup. So we’re all just speculating. But it’s fun.

Do you think Monáe and Nyong’o were flirting? Or just friends? Are you rooting for them to be together? Are you obsessively rewatching the video trying to decode their body language and search for sapphic signals? Let us know in the comments!
