Janelle Monae has responded to a fan who told her to “be sexy” and to stop wearing “those dumbass suits”.

The comments were made by Twitter user @mellow_saa, who wrote: “girl stop being so soulful and be sexy..tired of those dumbass suits..you fine but u too damn soulful man”. The tweet was later deleted.

Monáe recently shared the video for her new song ‘Yoga’. The track is a collaboration with Jidenna and will feature on an upcoming compilation EP from Monáe’s Wondaland label called ‘Wondaland Presents THE EEPHUS’. Watch the clip below.

Meanwhile, Janelle Monáe will appear on the new Duran Duran album.

The follow-up to 2010’s ‘All You Need Is Now’, the LP will also feature contributions from ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante and Kiesza, while Nile Rodgers, Mark Ronson and Mr Hudson all appear in the production credits.

It was previously reported that Lindsay Lohan looked set to appear on the LP, after she was pictured in a London studio with the group.
