Greg Cochrane of BBC Newsbeat has a feature on Janelle Monae.

"One of things that I'm most excited about doing is always creating art in front of an audience," she says. "That being said, I don't choreograph anything I do - I'm just pretty much giving my all.

"I play a lot with fire before I go onto the stage. One thing that I don't do is use the restroom."

"You get that constant feeling of my-body-is-on fire-I have-to-go-to-the-bathroom type of performance - it's an A-typical art form."
