Janelle Monáe has been making their rounds going viral on social media ahead of their upcoming album, The Age of Pleasure. In a video posted on Twitter, the artist was seen flashing the crowd while she performed, lifting her top to expose her bare breasts. Now, in the newest Rolling Stone cover story, she explains why. "I’m much happier when my titties are out and I can run around free," the self-described “free-ass motherfucker” said.
In the time since Janelle Monáe dropped one of the best albums of the 2010s, the Grammy-nominated Dirty Computer, she’s been focused on her acting career. As fans starved for a follow-up to the album that featured such memorable songs as “Make Me Feel” and “Pynk,” Janelle delivered critically-acclaimed performances in films such as Harriet and Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery — both of which landed Oscar nominations.
