(AP) Janelle Monae chooses her roles as an actor as carefully as she does the music she performs.

And she says when she takes on a role, she tries to honor the character she plays.

The singer says her upcoming role as a former soldier with PTSD is important and feels the research she did for it has made her a stronger actress.

Monae will be in season two of "Homecoming," which premieres tomorrow on Amazon Prime Video.
