Janelle Monae for Los Angeles Confidential Magazine

Janelle Monae the artist, political activist, and now in-demand actress is a living truth of just wait when the time is right. She was featured and covers Los Angeles Confidential magazine this month.

"I love telling these sorts of stories that give voice to those who are oftentimes uncelebrated, to those who don’t feel like they have a voice in America,” says Monáe of the characters central to both films—Moonlight’s Chiron, whom Monáe’s Teresa supports as a mother figure, and Hidden Figures’ Katherine Johnson, played by Taraji P. Henson; Octavia Spencer’s Dorothy Vaughn; and the high-voltage Mary Jackson, Monáe’s first starring film role. “These are characters who are considered to be outcast in society because of their sexual identity, gender, or race,” she says. “I think that these two movies have opened up a new door to the possibilities of telling more unique stories.”

Janelle has always been true to herself and always graciously humble. What a role model. To see her evolving right in front of our eyes is a sight to see.
