Janelle Monaé always manages to capture our attention with her menswear aesthetic, high pompadour, smashing pink lips and, of course, her incredible voice! Wherever she goes and whatever she does, this young chanteuse is consistently amazing so it makes perfect sense for her to be selected as the newest CoverGirl. The accomplished Grammy nominee is well on her way to staking big claims in the music industry; her debut concept album “The ArchAndroid” was named the #1 album of 2010 by Associated Press, The Guardian, The Chicago Tribune and the LA Times, and she was included in the first-ever Women Who Rock exhibit in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year. Monaé’s attitude and accomplishments are consistent with COVERGIRL’s mission to help women tap into what’s unique about them.
“I believe it’s time that women truly owned their superpowers and used their beauty and strength to change the world around them,” she said. “One of my core values is to help redefine what it means to be a strong and beautiful woman in the music and fashion worlds and to empower the wonderful things that make us unique.”
Not only does she have an amazing singing voice, but she also has a refreshing and inspirational message to go along with it. Monaé’s CoverGirl campaign launches today, and we are obsessed with her easy, breezy, beautiful – and totally fierce – look!
