No Filter: This Photo of Janelle Monáe Makes Me Feel [REDACTED]

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!

Candace Parker is working out and Mom-ing like the icon she is, it makes me feel very peaceful to watch her.

Also look at my favorite baby Sloane simply vibing around in her little car!!!

Okay so top half is babies, I guess! Samira decided to grace us with her babe and those iconic Mixed Chicks™ curlz!

In non baby news, Cynthia had a perfectly lovely birthday for a white woman in her fifties (Broadway and Billy Joel)! Happy Belated!

Keke Palmer is possibly the only person to even get close to convincing me khaki has some value??

Holland has returned to the stage as Ann Richards, and of course she is doing student performances and loving it.


There is no way this is not a promo photo for a TV show? Like very specifically an early aughts MTV reality show?

YES MJ get that Apple TV+ money!!!

Yes, Niecy looks incredible and let’s celebrate that but mostly I am coveting a blazer in this color right now and how does she have it and I do not!!!

Apparently swimsuit season is now! Loving this animal print with color??
