Glass Onion Star Janelle Monáe Shares Amazing Body Video From the Beach

Here are her top health habits.

Janelle Monáe is on fire in her swimsuit. In a new social media post the singer and Glass Onion star shows off her phenomenal figure in a monokini, driving her followers wild. "2 sharks and 1 starfish asked me on a date," she captioned the Instagram video that elicited endless fire emojis. "You so fine U cause pain," commented one of her fans. "Beautiful girl," added another. How does the star approach health and wellness? Celebwell rounded up her top lifestyle habits. 




Janelle dances daily. "I do a lot of heavy sweating up on stage," she told Black Doctor. "We do 90-minute shows — I'm moving around and it's very high-energy. That often becomes my workout, just performing and being onstage. I guess you can say I exercise a lot, but really, I don't realize I'm getting a workout while I'm dancing onstage because I'm always having so much fun."


A "Healthy, Balanced" Diet


"I try to keep a healthy, balanced diet on the road, though it can sometimes be hard. I try to eat a lot of salads while I'm traveling, but when I need a light, fluffy snack, I reach for my pita chips and hummus," Janelle told Black Doctor about how she eats.




Janelle makes sure to hydrate. "I also drink a lot of water to stay healthy and preserve my voice on the road. I sip a lot, especially when I'm flying, since airplane travel can dry out your voice like crazy," she told Black Doctor. According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.


Inner Beauty

Janelle believes that "in terms of staying fit and healthy, a lot comes from within," she told Black Doctor. "The happier you are, the more your beauty comes out. When you have a good heart and positive energy, you and the people around you are better. And that's the best beauty and health advice you'll find anywhere," she said. 


Limited Fish

Janelle, a former pescatarian, ended up with mercury poisoning from eating too much seafood. "I started feeling my mortality," she told The Cut about the experience.



"I think self-care is important, and it shifts with your growth," Janelle told Shape. "It used to be making sure that I take a vacation because I had been working 11 months out of the year. I needed time to play, to let my hair down, and run around naked. All of that is still important. And if I also want to drink, I'm drinking. You know what I'm saying?"
