Janelle Monáe Is the Newest Face of CoverGirl

Janelle Monáe

Janelle Monáe is feeling easy, breezy, and beautiful. The “Tightrope” singer has been named the newest face of CoverGirl.

The 26-year-old Kansas native took to Twitter to celebrate the news. “I’m strong. I’m beautiful. I AM A COVERGIRL!!!!” tweeted Monáe.

CoverGirl welcomed her to the family. “Welcome @JanelleMonae to the @COVERGIRL fam! Excited to go on this beauty journey with you!”

Monáe joins the latest CoverGirl Pink and past spokeswomen Rihanna, Brandy, Queen Latifah, and Tyra Banks. Her first 10-page print campaign will appear in the September issue of Vogue.

“Growing up and trying to find myself as a woman and experimenting with makeup, I’d go buy magazines,” she told Vogue. “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.”

In her new role, she hopes to change the face of beauty. “I believe in the idea of every woman finding their own beauty superpowers,” she said. “I want to help redefine what it means to be a strong woman in the music and fashion worlds.”

    @MinajRules2012, Of course you wouldn’t be impressed because if there’s nothing to point out on her and pin the name HOE on her She isn’t interesting
    Nicki Minaj Fans goes over broad, downgrading other females that are 100% better than her !!!

    @GooGle, dont box all fans of Nicki Minaj in with “MinajRules2012″ because that is not a nicki minaj fan. That hoe is just a hater who lives a boring life and has nothing to do with itself..

    I am surprised Cover Girl picked this chick because she’s not popular hasn’t sold a lot of records seems like a strange decision.
