Janelle Monáe Was Fired From Office Depot For Singing

Well, Office Depot may be kicking themselves now after Janelle Monae shared an awesome story of why she was once fired from a job at the office supply retailer.

However it seems like she has a much better career now for it.

During her visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the host said he heard a pretty fun story. He went along to reveal that singing got her fired from a job.

Monae was working at an Office Depot and at the time, was living in a boarding house with six other girls, couldn't afford her own apartment, sold cds independently and couldn't afford a computer of her own.

Monae used one of the laptops at Office Depot to respond to a fan who enjoyed her music. She said she was called to the back of Office Depot, where her boss told her they were going to make it easy for her.

They wanted her to go do what she loved and the rest as they say is history.

If you're talented, people will recognize it and do whatever it takes to help you make it. Even if that involves firing you.
