We caught up with Uber performer Janelle Monae backstage at So You Think You Can Dance Thursday night, August 5th.

Monae knows how to hype up a crowd with her seemingly endless energy. How does she do it? “Toast and jam in the morning,” she jokes.

If you haven’t seen Monae in action, her music is a hybrid of rock with R&B and Hip Hop and her moves are enough to prompt even the laziest couch potato off their duff. She was raised on folk music, but has taken her music roots to a whole new level.

The musician tells HollywoodOutbreak.com that she’s always working on new songs as well as constantly performing, but will kick off a larger tour beginning this fall.
