Janelle Monáe Covers Essence Magazine May 2013

Musician and Cover Girl spokes model Janelle Monáe covers the May issue of Essence Magazine looking fabulously retro glam.  Love her style! She had some very insightful things to say about her stance in the music industry.

“People don’t ask Jay-Z to take his shirt off when he rhymes,” Janelle told  Essence about not shedding any garments as she tries to “redefine what it means  to be sexy and what it means to be a woman. Showing my skin is not what makes me  sexy,” she declares.
