Janelle  Monáe joins a powerhouse lineup of CoverGirls including P!nk, Sofia Vergara, Queen Latifah, Drew Barrymore, Ellen DeGeneres and Taylor Swift as a brand new CoverGirl. The brand believes in helping women tap into what’s uniquely special about them and working it with confidence – celebrating a style that only they can rock.  So it’s fitting that CoverGirl is partnering with Janelle.

The artist just wrapped her first CoverGirl advertising shoot, which is scheduled to debut in the September issue Vogue.  Janelle, a style icon in her own right with her signature black-tie wardrobe and striking hairstyle known as a “Monae,” encourages women to use all their artistic powers to play, change, and transform.

“I believe it’s time that women truly owned their superpowers and used their beauty and strength to change the world around them,” says Janelle. “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. Becoming a CoverGirl is truly an honor and a gift: it opens up a new platform for me to inspire women to feel stronger, braver and more beautiful inside and out.”

“Ever since Janelle made her electrifying arrival on the music scene, she has captured our imaginations, stirred our souls, and made us all move our feet,” said Esi Eggleston Bracey, VP and General Manager, CoverGirl.  “Janelle is a true force of energy and a beautiful spirit who truly delights in her creative journey, not just the destination. We’re elated and can’t wait to show the world another dimension of her artistic ‘superpowers’ as a member of our CoverGirl family.”
