2013 is clearly Janelle Monae’s year. The pompadour rocking, Grammy award-winning Cover Girl is preparing for the release of her new album, The Electric Lady. We are used to see her in her trademark black and white clothing and natural hair styled in the infamous pompadour. However, recently,Janelle Monae has been seen donning a new look. The look may have just been for this special event…or it could be here to stay for the next album. What do you think about this new look? It is definitely worth a second glance as this is a very different style for the singer. And although she is still wearing black, which is to be expected, the new hairstyle gives her a totally different look. Do you think entertainers should change up their looks? Or do you think they should stay true to one look and make it their “brand?” Nevertheless, the new album must have inspired a new look whether temporary or not.
The first single, a duet with Erykah Badu, was released at exactly 7:54 PM EST on April 22nd.
