Singer, songwriter, and now spokes model Janelle Monae is officially a Cover Girl … and everyone is celebrating! 

She recently announced on her Twitter account to all of her fans:

In Vogue Magazine’s September issue, you can flip through and find Monae’s 10 page Cover Girl advertising spread where she looks absolutely gorgeous!

I just love the fact that Monae is stepping outside of her androgynous signature style and adding beauty as a staple part of her look. She already has great features and gorgeous skin, so it’s nice to see her representing as a fresh face.

During her interview with Vogue she talked about reaching out to young women through being a Cover Girl,

“Growing up and trying to find myself as a woman and experimenting 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.”

She added,

“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.”

For some reason, I couldn’t embed the video for you, so click here to watch the cutest video of Monae backstage with Cover Girl.
