Janelle Monáe has revealed that she is recovering from mercury poisoning after following a pescatarian diet.

"I started feeling my mortality," she told The Cut, sharing that she had been battling mercury poisoning.

A pescatarian diet consists mainly of vegetables and whole grains, but fish and other seafood are also consumed. It's a largely plant-based diet of whole grains, nuts, legumes, produce and healthy fats, with seafood playing a key role as a main protein source.

According to the World Health Organization, mercury is highly toxic to humans and people can become poisoned when they consume contaminated fish.

Monáe mentioned her health problem when she discussed motherhood, saying that she wants to find the right time in her career and be healthy enough to have a child.
