Janelle Monàe Covers Vanity Fair June Edition

Singer, songwriter and actress. The multi talented artiste features in Vanity Fair's latest cover. 

This edition was shot via zoom. Collier Schorr photographed Monáe for the June issue of the entertainment magazine, from a distance. 

With the Corona Virus pandemic and the social distancing rule, it is almost impossible to shoot in person, so photographers are encouraging virtual options.

According to Vanity Fair, Monáe is built for an era in which technology facilitates humanity. She is a disciple of the classic 1927 sci-fi movie Metropolis. She spent years crafting concept albums about apocalyptic robots and black, queer, Afro-futuristic revolution, often performing as her android alter ego, Cindi Mayweather. Alongside frequent collaborators Chuck Lightning and Nate Wonder, she’s also the cofounder of an arts collective called the Wondaland Arts Society, whose manifesto includes lofty lines about how songs are like spaceships, books are like stars, and music is a weapon of the future.
