Strip’n’tux… Janelle Monae’s in control
JANELLE MONÁE explained why she gets suited and booted — and it’s not because she’s a prude.
Showing off her style in Fault magazine, the 32-year-old singer and Moonlight actress said: ‘People used me to shame other women who wore clothes which showed skin. They thought I was dressed in suits because of respectability politics, but that’s a lie.
‘I’ve always been about women being in control of their narrative and their bodies. If the whole world were wearing suits and tuxedos, I’d be naked!’
