"Janelle and I love each other deeply. We're so close, we vibrate on the same frequency. If people want to speculate about what we are, it doesn't bother me," said Thompson.

Thompson said her family is very supportive

“[In my family] you can be anything you want to be. I’m attracted to men and also to women. If I bring a woman home, [or] a man, we don’t even have to have the discussion,” Thompson said.

Thompson is featured in Monáe's new music video, PYNK.

Thompson just finished filming "Creed II," set to be released this year and will appear in the "Men in Black" spinoff in 2019, People reports.
