No Filter: Janelle Monáe Is Reporting From the Future

Feature image of Janelle Monáe via Janelle’s Instagram

Welcome back to No Filter! This is the place where I pull the best content from celesbian IG for your viewing enjoyment! Let’s go!

I love when Janet pops on IG every couple of months to look stunning in some custom Prada!!!

Samira’s 35th birthday was on the 15th! Well happiest returns, and yes I am noting that you are yet another famous Aries!

I am not quite sure where Kehlani is but it seems like…not at Coachella? UNLESS this is a bit, I am not doing any further investigating to confirm!

Keke, on the other hand, was abso at Coachella!

Sara hopped on down to to Florida for a family wedding, love to see it.

My concerns with Trace’s music career aside (it’s giving Iggy Azalea???), my word that woman has a presence on a stage!

Okay so Niecy is 100% the right kind of person to host…well, literally anything, but “Don’t Forget The Lyrics” seems especially right for her??? Also this does seem like a show I would feel DEEPLY cocky about and then mess up immediately??

Extremely cool girls behavior, going to the Basquiat exhibit, imo!


Technically today is the pub day for Janelle’s The Memory Librarian: And Other Stories of Dirty Computer but I think we can all agree that she is in fact reporting to us from the future, yes??
