In case you missed it, GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer-songwriter-performer-producer-actress-activist, Janelle Monáe, is making headlines after she returned to The Late Show stage last week as the lead talk guest and performer. The global superstar sat down with host Stephen Colbert to discuss her critically-acclaimed third album, DIRTY COMPUTER, the accompanying tour, her iconic “PYNK” pants, Barack Obama, and more. Following the interview, Monáe enlists Colbert for his first impromptu dance party atop The Late Show desk. The special moment paid homage to Janelle’s previous appearance on the show, where she danced on top of then-host’s, David Letterman’s desk during her electrifying performance of “Dance Apocalyptic.”
