Here is a small synopsis on the iconic and beautiful Janelle Monae. Janelle gives us energy, class, soul, and spunk all in a 5 foot frame. Janelle was born to a working class family in Kansas City. She is infamously known for her tuxedo get-ups and all black and white ensembles. The inspiration behind her signature looks were her parents’. “I call it my uniform,” Janelle stated in an interview. “My mother was a janitor and my father collected trash, so I wear a uniform too.” Janelle’s big break came in 2005 when she performed “Killing Me Softly With His Song,” at an open mic and Big Boi from the duo Outkast was blown away by her performance.
Janelle consistently supply’s us with upbeat, high tempo music. Music where we can free our minds and just wild out with the beat. Take a look below at Janelle Monae classic style over the years.
