The Yoga hitmaker opened up about her journey in self-discovery on Jada Pinkett Smith's show and who she considers herself to be.
"I’m nonbinary, so I just don’t see myself as a woman, solely. I feel all of my energy. I feel like God is so much bigger than the ‘he’ or the ‘she.’ If I am from God, I am everything. I am everything, but I will always, always stand with women. I will always stand with Black women. But I just see everything beyond the binary," she said.
She later narrated that she needed to work on herself first and get the things she needed for herself that she could share with the world, and that's why she had to get correct answers about who she was first.

Monáe added that she sees the energy of people over their gender.
“I don’t see how you identify. And I feel like that opens you up to fall in love with whoever, with any beautiful spirit," she added.
However, she has not changed her pronouns and is still referred to as she/her.
