On what Monét wants her fans to take away from her latest album:

  • "Jaguar II was an album that was made over the course of four years… The biggest takeaway I wanted people to have with Jaguar II was the dynamic of a female. The dynamic, the diversity, and the versatility and the thoughts that we also have, again that are maybe normalized more so as male… I am hoping that it is something that feels timeless and classic that people will want to revisit in 10 years, 20 years down the line."

On finding her inspiration:

  • "Some days, creatively, are easier than others, of course, but I can find inspiration anywhere. Sometimes it's subconscious; sometimes, it's something I've completely made up and sometimes, it's maybe one story of this drama from a friend, one story I saw on a sitcom here, like it can literally be anything. I try to look at creativity and ideas as gifts blowing in the wind; if you catch it, it's yours, but if you don’t, it'll go to somebody else."

On overcoming stage fright as a young performer:

  • "I actually didn’t sing at first. I was more gravitating towards dance because I was really shy growing up, so I thought of dance as a silent sport. In fact, when I used to sing in front of anybody, I used to make them turn around... I would always sing in the shower or places where people weren't watching at first and then slowly got the confidence to take the stage."
