Janelle Monáe is well-known for her Grammy-nominated music and flourishing acting career. However, it is her activism during this crisis that has become the star of the show. Monáe, like many, has not been shy about her displeasure with how the federal government has handled the coronavirus pandemic, which she expressed in an interview to go with her Vanity Fair cover.
“The way our government is handling things—especially this administration—is evil,” she told Vanity Fair. “We can’t trust this administration to tell us the truth, to protect us. It’s always going to be power first. It’s always going to be capitalism first.”
