In an exclusive interview with the BVX, singer Janelle Monae talks about her retro-futuristic style and why we won’t see her sitting in anyone’s “window seat” anytime soon.

So we shouldn’t expect you to go the pantless route a la Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Rihanna and strip down anytime soon?

I’m naked at home. I paint naked and I love my body and appreciate it. But at the same time, I think my music is most important. My body is really nice and I would hate for it to upstage my art. Especially because I think my art can motivate change more than my body can. As a woman, [stripping down] is the easy way. I love all the artists you just mentioned. But for me, I like to keep my focus on my music, my art, my voice. And I don’t want to be distracting people with how beautiful my body is. It’s not about that right now.
