After winning her first grammy, Song of the Year, in February 2013 for “We Are Young” with the band Fun, indie-fave Janelle Monae may not be a underground artist for much longer as she bursts on the scene with a gorgeous ESSENCE magazine cover. ┬áIn the May 2013 issue, the singer boasts to the magazine that “I made a decision to be unique” as she reveals the origin of her iconic black-and-while ensembles and why her fans won’t ever see her using sex appeal to sell records.” She tells the mag, “People don’t ask Jay-Z to take his shirt off when he rhymes.”

Since her debut in 2010, Janelle explains that her bold decision to remain covered up was to “…redefine what it means to be sexy and what it means to be a woman. Showing my skin is not what makes me sexy.”

She adds, “I like skirts and dresses just like everyone else, but I had a message I needed to put out there. It was up to me to show people and young girls there was another way.”

Fans can pick up the May issue of ESSENCE (on newsstands April 5) and check out Janelle at this year’s ESSENCE Festival in July.
