Transcript of Favorite Artist http://www.kidzworld.com/article/25415-janelle-monae-bio

Janelle has always been an old-fashioned girl.
Monáe has gained a signature clothing style of wearing a Tuxedo wardrobe and she said on the matter to Honey Magazine "I bathe in it, I swim in it, and I could be buried in it. A tux is such a standard uniform, it’s so classy and it’s a lifestyle I enjoy. The tux keeps me balanced. I look at myself as a canvas. I don’t want to cloud myself with too many colors or I’ll go crazy. It’s an experiment I’m doing. I think I want to be in the Guinness Book of World Records." She’s been called “a different kind of diva” by Vogue Magazine and “a true visionary… one of the most important signings of my career” by Sean “Diddy” Combs. For singer, songwriter, and high funkstress Janelle Monáe, however, the impetus remains the same as it’s been since before her Grammy-nominated debut EP Metropolis, Suite I: The Chase captured the imaginations of fans and fellow artists. As she readies her first full-length LP, The ArchAndroid, her focus remains on stirring your soul, moving your feet and simply, creating good music. Janelle Monae Janelle Monáe Albums 2006- Got Purp?

I don't believe in men's wear or women's wear, I just like what I like. And I think we should just be respected for being an individual…. I've been in Vogue, now, and different publications, which is cool, because I think that it just shows a different perspective of how women can dress." "When I am dead and gone, I want people to know that I tried to change the world through my heart." "I have lived and been through a lot and I challenge myself all the time to change for the better." "I feel like Harriet Tubman, except I am trying to free people through underground music, to free themselves creatively and inspirationally."

Monáe has stated the fictional character of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz has had an impact on creating some of her musical influences. She has told reporters that she always dreamt of being a singer and a performer since she has been very young. Monáe moved from Kansas City, Kansas to New York to study theatre at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. Her original plan was to pursue a career on Broadway, but she soon changed her mind and returned to music, an art form which, according to her, has the potential to change the world.
