She's our favorite and y'all know it - Janelle Monae covers Essence Magazine for April 2013. Oh yeah, she's promoting her new album, Electric Lady, coming late fall. In the article she talks about the album being her most personal project (source). In addition she revisits people's assumptions about her wardrobe style and the fact that she may branch out and try different styles as time progresses. My favorite line [about her clothing choices] was,
"People don’t ask Jay-Z to take off his shirt when he rhymes. Showing my skin is not what makes me sexy. I like skirts and dresses just like everyone else, but I had a message I needed to put out there. It was up to me to show young girls there was another way to be successful in this industry.” (www.essence.com)Janelle always keeps it classy! Make sure to pick up the issue on stand in May.
