QUICKIE: Watch Janelle Monae’s Guest Stars on Sesame Street

Billboard has some behind-the-scenes footage of LGBT ally Janelle Monae’s recent romp down Sesame Street, where she danced and sang an original song with Bert, Cookie, Big Bird and the rest of the gang.

The song she contributed is “Power of Yet,” which she describes as a musical version of the old adage, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” “I’m here because I am teaching everybody on Sesame Street the importance and the power of ‘yet,'” she says. “Never, ever, ever give up because there’s so much power in ‘yet.'” Aw.
