Janelle Monae talks to New York magazine about her influences; her style

New York magazine has a pretty interesting feature on singer, Janelle Monae. She talks about her influences, her new album , and her predilection for skinny tuxedos:

"Her trademark skinny tuxedo is inspired by Marlene Dietrich and is a tribute to “my mother, who was a janitor, and my father, who drove trash trucks. It pays homage to how they put on a uniform every day and turned something into nothing.” The hair is the result of experimentation. 'Some people call it a pompadour or a wompadour, but it’s a Monae.'"
