Congratulations are in order for Janelle Monae. 

The eccentric R&B chanteuse is the new face of CoverGirl! The singer, who has always had flawless skin and unique style, is helping other women, who don’t fit the cosmetics model mold, identify with the brand.

Janelle is featured in the newest ad campaign for the makeup giant and she had this to say about her new endeavor:

“I believe it’s time that women truly owned their superpowers and used their beauty and strength to change the world around them.” 

“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.”

Solange Knowles even chimed in about how proud she was of her friend Janelle, tweeting:
