Monet Is Rumored to Be Dating Kehlani
Monet, who told U.K.’s Gay Times that she decided to come out as bisexual in 2018 after she “literally fell in love with a girl,” is rumored to be dating fellow singer and collaborator Kehlani. On October 8, Monet and Kehlani released a remix of the song “Touch Me,” which is on Monet’s debut solo album, Jaguar.
The track only added fire to the dating rumors, as the song’s lyrics reminisce about a romantic encounter in the back of a car and paint a picture of how two lovers reunite.
The final lyrics of the song are sung by both women: “If you love me, show me.” Even more telling, when Monet posted about the song on Twitter, she wrote, “@Kehlani it feels so nice to finally have music WITH you and not just about you lmao.”
When “Touch Me” first dropped over the summer, Monet explained the song is exclusively about a woman. She told Apple Music in an interview, “‘Touch Me’ is one of the only songs where you can hear me sing a different pronoun. I say ‘girl,’ I say ‘her.’ It was really important for me to share that and make that statement. … I don’t think that we get a lot of songs that are directly saying that, especially in a sexual way.”
Monet Sings About Her Sexuality In Her Song With Grande, ‘Monopoly’
In the song, “Monopoly,” a duet with Grande, Monet sings in the chorus, “I like women and I like men, Work so f***** much, need a twinny, twin twin.” This was the first time she put her true feelings of her sexuality into her work.
“Because I’m really feminine, a lot of people would assume that either I like women for some weird fantasy, or that I’m just straight and if I get drunk enough I’d kiss a girl, and all these little stereotypes that people portray and project onto you,” she told U.K.’s Gay Times. “But I’m just glad that now there’s this song where there’s no confusion because I said it clearly, I’m not trying to hide it all. I think it was a really good thing for me to be able to release and get past and let people know.”
