With her new music video for her single “Yoga” taking off, R&B singer-songwriter Janelle Monáe is having a banner week, and she is not going to let any troll on Twitter get in her way.

A tweet from a user (who has since made his tweets private) said: “girl stop being so soulful and be sexy..tired of those dumbass suits..you fine but u too damn soulful man.”

Her response: “sit down. I’m not for male consumption.”

@mellow_saa sit down. I'm not for male consumption.

The tweet has racked up more than 2,200 retweets in 24 hours.
