Janelle Monae brings her eclectic and fearless sense of style to Rolling Out Magazine‘s latest issue with the story “Making Magic in a Musical Wonderland.” Inside, she talks about her rough upbringing and how that led to a vast musical imagination. She also recounts meeting Diddy and signing to Bad Boy records and touring with her mentors, Stevie Wonder and Prince.

Her creativity in music is only matched by her bold one-of-a-kind beauty look: full lashes, bright pink blush and a distinctive natural hair ‘do. Paired with her strict white and black color palette of menswear looks, Monae stands out in an industry of starlets who look like carbon copies of one other. For her spread with Rolling Out, she dons a top hat, a suit and a striped blouse with exaggerated shoulders.

    Love, love, LOVE her. Can I say “love” again without being totally annoying?

  • Alexana

    She is amazing. Her self confidence to wear and sing what ever she wants makes me want to do the same.

    “Archandroid” is one the most original albums I’ve heard in YEARS. She’s a fantastic talent with a unique sense of style I admire. Gorgeous mag shots. Ms Monae, you ROCK!! :o)
