Janelle Monae Demonstrates The Afro-Punk Attitude — In Formal Attire


MTV News' Daniela Capistrano met with Janelle Monae at the last edition of the Afro-Punk Festival to chat about the Afro-Punk Movement.

"It is not often enough that you see a young black woman in pristine slacks, dress shirt, bowtie, cumber bun and saddle shoes stage dive into a crowd and start a mosh pit.
This past weekend, producer Tami Katzoff and I found ourselves in the thick of Janelle Monáe’s set at the fourth annual Afro-Punk Festival, where she joined other amazing musicians, graffiti muralists, BMX riders and skateboarders at the Brooklyn Academy of Music."
