We traveled down to this year's Bonnaroo where we caught up with the soulful Janelle Monáe. She spoke to us about the importance of performing live and interacting with her audience at festivals. If you've ever seen her take the stage, then you know that she delivers an energetic performance that leaves a lasting memory.

Her Bonnaroo appearance comes just one week after her cameo during Outkast's notable performance at Governors Ball. Janelle spoke to us about hopping on stage alongside Big Boi and André 3000, and the influence they've had on her, and hip-hop, as a whole.
