"

'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.'

"

Jeff Benjamin, on Janelle Monae

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!

Until recently, I have had a tremendous amount of shame about the bullying I experienced as a child. Whenever something would happen and my mother would find out, she would yell at me and say, "Why didn’t you fight back?! What are you doing to make them treat you like that?" So I felt like it was my fault. (x)

Her face in that fourth gif broke my heart.  I love this woman.
