Part II: J Is For Janelle

One of my all-time favorite singers, whose unique performances are matched by her equally unique style, is Janelle Monae. Her album The ArchAndroid that came out in May has received much appraise, as had her fashion. Monae's uniform of white and black menswear and pompadour-like coif are making waves in the fashion world and redefining what it means to be a diva. Monae is the diva for this generation, one who, through fashion and music, defies the rules of gender and gives us a message of hope.

Besides having amazing style, Monae has toured with Erykah Badu, released two top selling albums, and performed at quite a few award shows. Here are a few links to some of her performances and videos:
