Personal Quote:

I've always wanted people to ask questions about the music. Some songs you get. Some songs you may not. And I think that's the beauty of art: to question and to ask, to understand the deeper meaning after two or three or four listenings. I appreciate that as a writer because sometimes the mystery, when it's gone, is not as interesting. I love the mystery behind things. See more »

Trivia:

Janelle made their movie debut in 2016, co-starring in "Moonlight" (2016) and "Hidden Figures" (2016). Both movies were nominated for Academy Awards for Best Picture, where "La La Land" was mistakenly announced as the winner by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. Ultimately, after a few minutes of excited confusion, "Moonlight" did indeed won the award. See more »

Trademark:

Often wears minimalistic black-and-white suits with a quiff hairstyle
