Janelle Monáe Says Her Pescatarian Diet Caused Mercury Poisoning

Janelle Monáe says she recently had a health scare over her diet. 

In an interview with New York magazine's The Cut, Monáe revealed she's trying to figure out the right time to have a child, but she's still recovering from mercury poisoning — which she attributed to her pescatarian diet.
