Janelle Monáe Addresses Kim Burrell Controversy, Once Again!

Reader, how is Janelle Monae gon' tell someone to ditch their religion that explicitly says that homosexuality is an abomination and those who are homosexual will not inherit the kingdom of God? How is that hate? Regardless of religious faith or whether it is just a strongly held principle. Kim Burrell's has the right to her view. Just because to one person her words may offended doesn't actually mean she is hate filled, bigoted or any other word people want to use. 

Anyhow, backstage last night at the Golden Globes, Hidden Figures actress Janelle Monáe once again addressed the recent controversy surrounding gospel singer and pastor Kim Burrell, who sings “I See a Victory” with Pharrell Williams on the film’s soundtrack. 

“I’m pro-love,” Monáe said, while joining her costars and the team behind the LBGT-themed movie Moonlight, which won the Best Motion Picture – Drama Golden Globe. “I’ve been very supportive of love, and at the end of the day, I think that no matter where you come from and who you love, you deserve to have a right to the American dream and to also have your story told. … I just think that anybody who is representing hate is a part of the problem and I hope we can learn from each other and be more empathetic of one another, and I hope we can all remember that at the end of the day we all bleed the same color.”

Whether you agree with homosexuality or not. Anyone and everyone has the right to their view AND has the right to air them. THAT is TRUE diversity, when EVERYONE'S view is accepted. Diversity of opinions and beliefs. I don't agree with same sex either because it goes against my principles, but if other people accept that that is their choice. But you can't tell me I can't have mine or I can't voice it just because you are offended and or don't agree.



  1. Miss Ann,

    I think that this has spun into something that the world can use against Christianity. Most celebrities are coming out with concepts like being against homosexuality is hate, and they are about love and inclusion regardless of our beliefs and faiths. And that it is important for us to accept others to have a "perfect world". Ergo, Christians are against peace and harmony.

    Truth is whenever God was judging against sin, there was separation. Believers know that Lot was separated from the Sodom and Gomorrah infernal (Genesis 19), Israel was separated from Egypt by the blood on the door posts (Exodus 12), those who worshipped the golden calf from those who stood for righteousness (Exodus 32). Fast forward to Jesus' sermon on judgement, the wheat and the tares (Matthew 13), goats separated from sheep (Matthew 25). Finally, the judgement where those who are found to be fearful and unbelieving separated into the lake of fire (Revelation 21).

    Monae and her kind are "pro-love". In other wards don't judge, live and let live. That's how they roll in the entertainment industry and get to keep their pay checks coming in.

    As believers we are called to be separate (2 Corinthians 6:17). We don't have to put this out on social media or shout it out on the streets but live according to the precepts of God for that is our high calling. For even Joshua was waiting on the side of the mountain while Moses was receiving the 10 commandments when the children of Israel decided to set up an idol for worship in the camp (Exodus 32). Guess who was chosen to lead Israel across Jordan (Numbers 27)?

    The LORD is my Shepherd, I shall NOT want...

  2. Again, SMH!! You say her preaching ISN'T hate speech, but, a person giving their opinion against some of OUR black/any other color/whoever, folk ways, or certain political people, etc, IS hate speech..WHAT! I mean, which is it?? And this is why the Church is SO divided. Anonymous, (The Lord Is My Shepherd), you said it, God's Christianity is under attack but we get caught up in these foolish arguments with ungodly people. Yep, they have their RIGHT, that's why God says "come out from among them and BE separate". Kim Burrell will continue to face these ungodly attacks until she makes up her mind to FORSAKE ALL for the glory of God. In Christ Alone, RLR.

  3. What did you expect from a LESBIAN. Who supports the LGBTQ community. I don't care what any of these celebrities say or do the BIBLE is RIGHT and they are WRONG. Its HOLINESS or HELL.

  4. No one cares what Janelle Monae says. We all know whe is personally offended because of her own lifestyle. She better heed Kim's words because living that life will not end well.

    And by thne way Kim Burrell does all the singing on I See Victory. Pharell is only singing bakground, check out the videos on YouTube.
