Janelle Monae Curves Tyrese, Respectfully
When you muster up the courage to put your feelings for another person on Front Street, there’s always the possibility that your advances will be shot down. One can only hope that the potential shooter has enough compassion to let you down delicately.
Last week, Tyrese boldly took to Instagram to praise and kick game to Janelle Monae by way of a Woman Crush Wednesday post. In the lengthy post, the “Stay” singer pondered what he could “help” her with or “protect” her from. In other words, he auditioned for the role of Miss Janelle Monae’s man in front of all of us.
I’m in my grown man feelings tonight! – I hope you get the message –
I’m a sucker for a naturally beautiful, God fearing woman who’s smart and authentic who’s strong and self-sufficient – most guys out here will run fast and be intimidated with the idea of all the things I just mentioned about you… tonight I showed up to celebrate and to be a part of one of the most special nights of my life as a singer Stevie Wonder turned 65 and I asked to sit in Janelle Monae section she blessed me and said of course and was I reminded of a feeling I’ve had before a few times before…. I often wonder what I can protect you from…. What I can help you with, what insight of information can I give to help further your goal and life’s intentions – is there anything I can do or say to support you and just help you get ahead – I often wonder – sweet dreams – (((( I know a few girls who would feel like they deserve this post – )) I’m sure I’m gonna catch some heat for this post – I’m so sure ha! But I won’t delete it – cause I speak my truth….. And my truth won’t change………
Unfortunately for him, she doesn’t seem too interested; however, I can appreciate that she curved his advances both a respectful and tactful manner. Her Twitter response reads:
Always positive and endearing to see a man show admiration for an Electric Lady. I am Honored. Thank you @Tyrese.
Well played, Janelle. Well played.
