The lovely and talented Miss Janelle Monáe has fluttered into hearts and iTunes libraries with her works, such as Metropolis and The ArchAndroid. Now the 26-year old Kansas City native has become the new face of CoverGirl!
Janelle joins the ranks of several other celebrity endorsers including, Queen Latifah, Ellen Degeneres, Rihanna, Sofia Vergara and Tyra Banks. Stand up and scream for this brown queen!
“Growing up and trying to find myself as a woman and experimenting with makeup, I’d go buy magazines,” Janelle says. “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.”
You can find Janelle Monáe’s first 10-page CoverGirl ad in the September issue of Vogue! Congratulations to her!
