Janelle Monáe has claimed to be an alien, and given her otherworldly quirky and understated charm, we just might believe her. In 2013, the bright-eyed Covergirl spokeswoman released her second studio album, the Electric Lady, continuing her music's Utopian cyborg theme. The six-time Grammy nominee is playing a bigger crowd than ever this trip to LA. Catch her at the Hollywood Bowl for a mixture of soul, jazz, pop-punk and even gospel tunes. Single tickets go on sale May 4.
