ESSENCE May Cover-Janelle Monae

Janelle Monae and her beautiful grill just landed the cover of ESSENCE Magazine!

Here’s what readers can expect from the cover story:

Janelle Monáe is no ordinary artist. She lives, breathes and dreams of being true to herself, inspiring young women and, of course, imagining interplanetary escapades. ESSENCE Contributing Writer Lola Ogunnaike visits the singer’s quirky Wondaland studio and discovers the beauty and brilliance of her world. Monáe is also slated to perform on the Mainstage during the ESSENCE Festival, held July 4th weekend in New Orleans.

And here’s an interesting quote from the story:

“Showing my skin is not what makes me s3xy. 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 people and young girls there was another way…”— Janelle Monáe

Oooh we like! Sounds like she is trying to balance out all the Rihannas of the world.
