Janelle Monae

Pretty great write up in the LA Times, not just about this genre-bending album, but about the Wondaland Arts Society, which sounds like every artist's dream come true.

That's what the Wondaland Arts Society is all about — creativity emerging in unexpected ways as people free themselves from fixed roles and presumptions. MonĂ¡e embodies this spirit; "The ArchAndroid" expresses it. And now it's up to the world to take it on.

"Whatever celebrity they achieve will be built on being unclassifiable," said writer-mentor Greg Tate, "which in the long run is where you want to be … free to be freaky as you wanna — like George Clinton and David Bowie in their primes."
