Something grandiose from Janelle Monáe

Janelle Monáe is about to get some love from Rolling Stone magazine... in its annual “Hot Issue.” Good for Janelle. (Even though I haven’t picked up a Rolling Stone since 1997.)

Meanwhile, have you seen the expensive and overstuffed video for “Many Moons”? Janelle Monáe is bringing dorky back. And I like it.

Is that "the Hatian" from Heroes I see in there?

The first time I saw her it was in a picture from some event. Then I saw her again on youtube, performing live. Everytime I see her shes wearing the same thing. She dances so crazy her cute little hair-do comes undone. I like her but I think I like her style more than her music.

I really like Janelle, especially in a world of Beyonces and Kisha Coles.

The only fear I have regarding Janelle's career is that she's hooked up with P.Diddy, that's not good.

Janelle is also featured in the fall issue of Trace Magazine, which by the way is the "Black Girls Rule" issue.

Thought you were going to wax poetic on the allegory in the video.
