Show & Prove: Janelle Monae

Name: Janelle Monae

Hometown: Atlanta

Testamony: OutKast was a huge influence on me. They helped open doors for artists like myself, who love to play with different ideas and [who are] outrageous. They helped bring that side out of me.

[Diddy says] Janelle Monae is one of the most important signings of my career. She is a true visionary, with an original sound and a mesmerizing presence. I can’t wait to watch her future unfold.
