“I haven’t really been focused on music in the way that I would, because music is so deeply rooted in my reality pre-corona. Right now I’m just trying to make sense of this new reality,” Monáe says. “I’ve really been rooted in community service and how I can turn all of my anger that I’m feeling with this administration into something positive. I strongly think it’s going to be the people who save the people. We can’t depend on people at the top to do it for us. It’s going to have to be groundwork that happens.” … [Read more...] about Janelle Monáe fights COVID-19 food insecurity with #WondaLunch

9. The Bachelorettes This friendship turned out to be a bust. It started out with so much promise, especially during a time on the show when we were rooting for Issa to get new friends.
