Janelle Monae Get's SASSY On The Cover Of Uptown Magazine!!!


Janelle Monae looks absolutely gorgeous on the cover of Uptown Magazine! In the interview the singer get's extra SASSY when discussing record sales, her relationship with Prince, and Diddy being her personal slapper!


The biggest misconception about her:

"People think I am so straitlaced and buttoned up. There is a lot of life underneath this tuxedo. I like to have fun. I enjoy practical jokes. I enjoy rolling around the mall in wheelchairs. I enjoy taking someone's baby and putting it on my hip for about tow hours straight and then giving it back."

On meeting Erykah Badu:

"We met underwater. She was the Queen of the Water and I was swimming. We would perform and talk about what kind of popcorn and hotdogs we like."


On Diddy being her personal slapper:

"He is the ambassador and protector of the jam. He makes sure that our ideas get out into the world. He is not involved creatively. He is the spokesperson for corporations when it's time to talk business. When we don't want to have conversations with suits, he goes in and slaps people for us. He is our highest professional slapper. He slaps anyone that tries to mess up the jam."

On meeting Prince:

"It was a cosmic journey. I met him when I was traveling through the Milky Way. He was in a hovercraft with his little Afro, and was just staring down at me. I was with Erykah, and we were sipping tea. I told him, "I like jelly." He said, "Okay, so let's jam!" And he whipped out his guitar. 



On always getting asked about her tuxedo:

"But the next person that ask me about wearing a tuxedo, I will give them a hug and then a slap."

On getting asked the same questions in interviews:

"Yes. Interviews are like marriages sometimes, and things become old. It's time to spruce up this sex life! We need to try some new things. I am always asked, "Why do you wear that tuxedo?" Or, "We know that your parents wore uniforms, is that why you wear a uniform?" I want to tell them, [a southern accent emerges]"You know good and darn well that you read that somewhere! I am wondering "Why are you asking me the same question?" Let's talk about the music, the message and why my eyelashes are long."

Side SASS: We really love Janelle Monae! Her music is amazing, she's stunning, and those lashes are definitely to die for! She absolutely Bold, Classy, and Oh So SASSY
