I saw this cover on Twitter last night and I literally yelped a little bit at how good it is. IT IS SO GOOD. (The dress is by Marina Hoermanseder, it is latex, and I feel like you would need to be a wizard to get it on and off easily; luckily, I’m pretty sure Janelle Monae is actually magic.) It’s a visual stop-sign; I immediately stopped scrolling and just stared.

The interview with her is brief but thoughtful, informational (these Varietys have a focus on “worthy causes,” and Janelle is supporting several), and well worth your time.
