This era of Monae's career has included plenty of freeing the nipple.

Janelle Monae began her Age of Pleasure Tour on a high note earlier this year, and earlier this week, the genre-bending creative closed it in the same fashion. On Wednesday (October 18), her final performance took place in Los Angeles at the YouTube Theatre in Inglewood. While crooning some of her biggest hits, Monae continued her trend of nonchalantly flashing the audience her breasts, this time showing off the left one in the middle of her set.

Most artists wouldn't dare put themselves in such a vulnerable situation in front of a crowd of strangers (and their camera phones). The 37-year-old, however, isn't ashamed of the skin she's in, and even shared during her album rollout that she's "much happier when [her] ti**ies are out." As the crowd caught sight of Monae's bare breast many of them cheered with excitement, hyping the entertainer up amid her final night on stage.

The Age of Pleasure Tour kicked off at the end of August in Seattle before Janelle headed to cities like Vancouver, Chicago, Boston, Toronto, New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Phoenix, and many more. Along the way, special guests Jidenna, Flyana Boss, Dreamer Isioma, and Nana Kwabena came out to help. Fans of the Kansas native are sad to see this leg of performances wrapped up but are eager to see what the next phase of Monae's career will bring her.

Janelle Monae has long been praised for her artistry, but The Age of Pleasure found the "I Like That" songstress coming in her most confident form yet. Besides showing off the body that she works hard to maintain on more than one occasion, the vocalist also impressed us with her lyrics and singing throughout the project.
