Pitchfork's Ryan Dombal has an interview with Janelle Monae, talking about "The ArchAndroid," he situation with Bad Boy/Atlantic and more.

Pitchfork: Diddy is helping to release your album, too. How did you hook up with him?

JM: He came to my release party in Atlanta for my EP Metropolis: The Chase, which we released literally out of our trunks. He said, "I know you guys have your business going on and I'm not trying to be involved creatively, but I just want people to know what's going on in the underground." So we formed a partnership. It's not a direct signing-- creatively and monetarily, we control things. He's a smart man. I don't want to sound cocky, but if I was him, I would definitely be trying to get involved with Janelle Monae. I'm his boss! He's not mine.
