Janelle Monae covers the May issue of Essence magazine and she does not disappoint. She still maintains her natural beauty that she has become known for as well as her signature hairstyle while discussing her firm decision to remain one of those entertainers who allow their work to speak for itself. While many in her industry, men and women alike have taken to being known for wearing almost nothing at their performances and photo shoots she keeps it classy while her music does the talking. The grammy award winning singer told Essence magazine “People don’t ask Jay Z to take off his shirt when he raps” and she also talks about what makes her unique and why she chooses to remain covered. I’m right there with her on that one.
The issue comes out on April 5th so go out and get yourself a copy and if you can check her out at the Essence Festival in July.
