”Q.U.E.E.N.’ definitely is an acronym,’ Monae explains during an interview at Fuse HQ. ‘It’s for those who are marginalized.’ She says the ‘Q’ represents the queer community, the ‘U’ for the untouchables, the ‘E’ for emigrants, the second ‘E’ for the excommunicated and the “N” for those labeled as negroid.
'It’s for everyone who’s felt ostracized,' she adds. 'I wanted to create something for people who feel like they want to give up because they’re not accepted by society.'

Quote is from the post: Janelle Monae Says “Q.U.E.E.N.” Is For The “Ostracized & Marginalized” on Fuse TV. I cannot express enough how much I adore this song and her!

When I’m stressed out my body is like “nope no sleep for you until you figure this shit out” and I’m like “dude, body, I can’t figure it out that’s the whole point.” And then it’s way too bright and loud and you realize it’s a brand new day you didn’t sign up for yet. I always go everywhere kicking and screaming.
