A regal looking Janelle Monae poses on the latest cover of Rolling Out magazine. The photo shoot features inspiration from the magic of 19th century France. The spread was shot in a French antique store called Paris on Ponce in Midtown Atlanta. When speaking about the conception of her musical artistry, she says:
“Music is a stimulant to getting in tune with your imagination. Art inspires art. A movie can inspire a song, and a painting can inspire a performance. It’s important to exercise that and write as much as you can. Albert Einstein said it best, ‘Imagination is more important than knowledge. If that’s not enough, I don’t know what else is”.
