Is hell freezing over!?
Just kidding. It’s not. But NecoleBitchie.com unearthed this picture of the very beautiful Janelle Monáe and a friend stepping out for an evening on the town, and we see that she ditched the tuxedo uniform we’ve grown to love for a waist-hugging little black dress and heels. And no pompadour! Just a middle parted ponytail and a bright pink pout. We know Monáe always looks great no matter what she wears, but this look is definitely a winner for the small songstress. Of course, Monáe has made it clear that she’s not trying to show off her body as an artist, because that’s nothing but a distraction to one’s true talent. After hours though…fair game. As she told Essence:
“People don’t ask Jay-Z to take his shirt off when he rhymes…I like skirts and dresses just like everyone else, but I had a message I needed to put out there. It was up to me to show people and young girls there was another way.”
