Reflecting on the health scare, she said: “I started feeling my mortality.”


Despite the illness, Monae has been hard at work, turning her focus to acting, ahead of her role in “mind-bending social thriller” “Antebellum”, which debuts in April 2020.

Talking about her role as Veronica, a writer with a strong sense of social justice, she said: “I want that spirit to always stay on-camera so I don’t break. I don’t talk on the phone a lot … I don’t want that to take me out of my space.”

Stressing that she takes her work home with her and finds inspiration in her personal life when crafting characters, Monae added: “I use my pain… I use it.”

“Antebellum”, also starring Jena Malone, Marque Richardson, and Eric Lange, hits theatres April 24.
