COVERGIRL Janelle Monae set the social media site Twitter abuzz, recently tweeting a picture of her new ELLE Canada cover, the first time she has received the cover for women’s magazine in her career. The Grammy Award-nominated singer will appear on the February 2013 Canadian edition of the magazine.

Clearly happy with the cover’s design, Monae, 27, tweeted the following late last night:



We are so happy this uber-talented superstar sets the tone for black-womaness and fabulousness around the globe in 2013 …

    does she always wear the same thing?

  • GeekMommaRants

    Yes James, she does. Ms. Monae says that he wardrobe represents a workers uniform.

  • omfg

    she’s so pretty, and talented.

    I love her, but I tire of the January and February magazine covers that feature Black women because it’s notoriously a slow mag sales month. Janelle Monae should be able to sell covers in September too.

  • Orange Starr Happy Hunting

    She doesn’t always wear the exactly same thing, variations of a tux inspired look, but always the same colors black and white.

    Essence clearly missed the boat on this one….

  • GeekMommaRants

    I type corrected, thanks

  • Ms Married

    Can she look different, ever?

  • Nice

    She is too cute.!

    Congrats, Janelle!

    What do all those letters after the smiley in her tweet mean? Is that a way to show you’re excited?

  • GlowBelle

    LOVE Janelle Monae, I’m so glad she’s finally getting some recognition! Just wish that American publications would give her some cover shine…

    who cares what month!! I am happy that they’ll actually put a black girl on the cover of anything. Why pick apart this women’s cover.

  • dee

    I have seen Janelle perform live and love her music. She is a hard-worker and complete inspiration. Look forward to seeing her on more covers in 2013.

    I love Janelle! Hopefully we’ll be seeing some new music from her this year, as well. :)

    As a Canadian. Im glad she is on the Elle Canada cover!!! We need to see more WC on the Canadian version of magazines!

  • Rosey

    She’s beyond gorgeous! I would like to see her look evolve a bit.

  • tee

    I love her she is beautiful, which is why I wish she could take her style to another level, this black & white thing is getting tired.
