Queen Latifah and Gabrielle Union Join Janelle Monae at WeHo Pride Fsalinks


Queen Latifah and Gabrielle Union both joined Janelle Monae‘s performance at WeHo Pride’s OUTLOUD music festival last weekend, drawing massive from the crowd with their collective dance moves.

In videos posted by Union to Instagram, Latifah and Union can both be seen escorting Monae to the front of the stage and twerking against the “Float” singer. In other photos and videos, the three pass time together backstage.

OUTLOUD is the flagship music festival of WeHo Pride Weekend, which took place this year from June 1 to 2 in West Hollywood Park in Los Angeles. In addition to Monae, Kesha, Adam Lambert and more performed.

Union attended the fest with her longtime stylist, Larry Sims, who posed with the singer last year for The Hollywood Reporter’s Beauty Issue.

Sims, the co-founder of hair-care line Flawless by Gabrielle Union, told THR at the time that his career highlight was creating the actress’ voluminous, gravity-defying updo for the 2021 British Fashion Awards. “It was so over-the-top and grand. I just loved the audacity of it,” he said. “She has been my muse, and I play dress-up with my real-life Barbie doll.”

Union added that working with Sims was “all about collaboration – because we are friends. We have a good-ass time. If it’s not fun, it doesn’t feel creative.”
