Soul Train Awards nominee Janelle Monáe has a knack for turning ordinary interviews into extraordinary conversations chock-full of fun quoteables and her latest exclusive with UPTOWN magazine is no exception.

While traveling through Paris, The "PrimeTime" singer caught up with Editor-in-Chief Isoul Harris as the pair discussed her love life, place in music, responsibility as an artist and a few of her famous friends who go by the names of Erykah Badu and Prince.

Check out a the excerpts below:

On the lesbian rumors...

"I only date androids. Was that even me that day? Who knows? I have clones, and they all come out and fight. Maybe that’s why I wear this tuxedo. There may be an ancient Chinese man fighting this rich African queen to get shine. I think it is so boring to be figured out in one conversation."

On quality versus quantity...

"When you release your first album, record sales are important. But now, I don't really care. I feel like this music is from God and I am the pastor that does not need a mega-church. I am fine with my 200-seat church, as long as the people that need it come and get inspired. I know what I could do to be amongst the popular crowd."

On the biggest misconception about her...

"People think I am so straitlaced and buttoned up. There is a lot of life underneath this tuxedo. I like to have fun. I enjoy practical jokes. I enjoy rolling around the mall in wheelchairs. I enjoy taking someone's baby and putting it on my hip for about two hours straight and then giving it back."

On meeting Erykah Badu...

"We met underwater. She was the Queen of the Water and I was swimming. We would perform and talk about what kind of popcorn and hotdogs we like."

On her friendship with Prince...

"It was a cosmic journey. I met him when I was traveling through the Milky Way. He was in a hovercraft with his little Afro, and was just staring down at me. I was with Erykah, and we were sipping tea. I told him, 'I like jelly.' He said, 'Okay, so let’s jam!' And he whipped out his guitar. [...] He is such a private person. But he and I have a great relationship. It feels like going down fallopian tubes and into space and time. I learned a lot about him. And, yes, if he ever became a comedic writer, he would be a billionaire."

On her social responsibility as an artist...

"If I were not a woman, or African-American, or have people in my life that have not been directly discriminated against, then I would not feel a social responsibility. When you love and care about people and you see young people dying, it's impossible to ignore. Let me be clear: When I speak of androids, I am speaking of the new form of the 'other.' You can parallel that to people who are gay or lesbian, those whose skin is considered too dark; women still are not receiving equal rights. I write music that fights against self-hate. It is about loving yourself even if it makes others uncomfortable."
