Before Janelle Monáe’s inspiring speech at the Critics Choice Awards, the singer and “The Glass Onion” actress attended the BAFTA Tea Party.
“Extra’s” Terri Seymour spoke to Janelle, who reacted to the sad news about Lisa Marie Presley’s death.
Janelle commented, “I always felt her spirit and her energy. I’m just so sorry to her family and to all the people that loved her and were close to her… Losing somebody like that, it’s not just about being in the public eye — she was a friend, she was a mom, she had people in her life. May her family find the strength and peace they need.”
