Congratulations are in order for ‘Tightrope‘ sensation Janelle Monae today.

In celebration of her unique sense of individuality and ever inspiring message, world renown brand CoverGirl have called on the star to become their latest face.

Details below…

She explained:

“Growing up and trying to find myself as a woman andexperimenting with makeup, I’d go buy magazines.I’d see Tyra Banks [in the CoverGirl ads] and I’d think, Wow, she’s beautiful.

It never looked like she had on too much makeup. There was just something clean and classic about her face.I believe in the idea of every woman finding their own beauty superpowers.I want to help redefine what it means to be a strong woman in the music and fashion worlds.”

Catch Ms. Monae’s spread for the brand in September’s edition of Vogue magazine.

    They need to offer beauty contracts to REAL beauties like FOXY BROWN or QUEEN PEN. They’re the same age as Janelle Monae and have had longer careers and sold MANY MORE RECORDS! Plus, they’d be a cheap hire because they’re broke!
