Janelle Monae On Ellen

Janelle Monae was a guest on Ellen today to promote her new movie Hidden Figures. She talked about how she assumed the movie’s storyline about the African-American women who mapped out John Glenn’s space mission with mathematics was historical fiction. Monae also tells Ellen how her mother was not impressed with her achievement as an opening act for Stevie Wonder and Prince but felt like her daughter made it after she got a movie role. Hidden Figures open in theaters tomorrow.
