People confuse Victoria’s last name with that of Janelle when it is not the same; the former is Monet while the latter is Monae, so even their last names are not related. However, many believe they might be distant cousins as they are of a similar age.

If we look into the family background of both singers, none show a connection or familial ties that go far enough to build a relationship between them.

While considering all facts, it is a must to know that Victoria Monet is from Atlanta, Georgia, but her roots go back to Sacramento, California, while Janelle Monae is from Kansas.

Yet, this does not indicate they are not familiar with each other. It might be surprising to know, but Janelle Monae and Victoria Monet have shared the stage and are both members of the LGBTQ community.

Rapper Janelle Monae identifies herself as nonbinary and pansexual, while singer Victoria Monet openly accepts she is bisexual.

Janelle Monae and Victoria Monet are from the same communities

The American singers Janelle Monae and Victoria Monet have garnered everyone’s attention as fans want to see them collaborate on a song, as they would perfectly fit each other vibes.

This might actually be a great hit, as Janelle Monae and Victoria Monet have created sensations, given they both recently won Grammy nominations together in November 2023, which many did not anticipate to be the case.

Talking about the sisterhood, Janelle and Victoria even released their most anticipated music, Lipstick Lover (Janelle’s) and Party Girls (Victoria’s), on the same date, May 10, 2023.

The singers even share their appearance, as they are both African American, but Victoria has an additional quality as her father is French.

Victoria Monet was born to her parents’ African American mother, L’Tanya Chestang-Cubit, also known as Mommy Monet, and her French father, whom she only met in her twenties, on May 1, 1989, in Atlanta, Georgia.

She was the family’s only child until she met her father and learned about her step-sister. Although she has not revealed the name, it is certainly not Janelle.

Moving to Janelle Monae, the singer-songwriter was born on December 1, 1985, in Kansas City, Kansas, to parents mother Janet and father Michael Robinson Summers.

Her parents separated when she was still a child, and her mother married for the second time. From Janet’s second marriage, Janelle has a half-sister, Kimmy.

Nevertheless, at first glance, Janelle Monae and Victoria Monet might seem similar and resemble each other, but they are certainly not related by blood.
