Stamp Of Approval: Prince Sends Janelle Monae Singing Telegram

September 11, 2013  |  

It’s very clear that Prince is quite fond of the Electric Lady, Miss Janelle Monae. Not only did he break tradition and appear as a featured guest on her album Electric Lady he also sent a singing telegram to her dressing room. The man remixed Prince’s “Kiss” and serenaded Monae with a bouquet of flowers.

Prince rewrote the lyrics to go as follows:

“You don’t have to be rich to be Monáe/ You don’t have to be a witch with a broom of hay/ Ain’t no particular rhyme that you need to say/ You just need a copy of Janelle’s Electric Lady.”

Check out the video of Janelle receiving the telegram below.


Love it!

If you’re a Janelle fan, her album is in stores now. Cop that.
