Share on Pinterest


If you’re looking for natural hair updo ideas, look no further than the Queen, Janelle Monae. The refreshingly unique artist flaunts a flawlessly painted face and funky hair in her newest shoot for Vibe Vixen.

I loved her spread in Essence and even Vibe Magazine, but she is truly serving in Vibe Vixen like no other. She’s in her element, posing like a true beauty and fashion goddess. Werrrrque.

I’m recreating that French braid updo as soon as these twists come out – mark my words.

Get into the magic below:

Don’t you LIVE and BREATHE for this shoot?

Here’s an excerpt from the revealing interview, conducted by friend to The Glamazons, Deena Campbell, where Janelle talks her new album, “Electric Lady,” love, babies and rapping:

On whether she’d release an all-rap mixtape:

“I’m flattered that people wonder that,” she says, smiling. “I love rapmusic, and I love hip-hop. I use rap as a way to communicate [and tell a story]. Yes, I will keep that in my thoughts.”

On changing her look for the “Dance Apocalyptic” video:

“I was inspired to create a female rock star. I think an electric lady isn’t to be marginalized. As the narrator and creator of these characters, I have lived by not making myself a slave to my own interpretations of who I am or a slave to your interpretations or anybody’s interpretations of who I am.”

On what she looks for in a lover:

“An android is my preference,” Janelle says coyly. “Two androids and a cyborg. I’m someone who sees your spirit and soul. I lovepassionate androids; one that knows exactly what it’s going to do in life. I like an android who knows how to handle and support an electric lady’s dreams and wings when it’s time to fly.”

On when she’ll have children:

After a quick pause, she replies. “When the time is right, everything is about timing. But, right now I’m giving birth to this album.”

On how the concept for “Q.U.E.E.N.” developed:

“Q.U.E.E.N’ really developed from a deep conversation Erykah and I were having about a woman’s place in the world. And how we were expected to be freaks and muses and virgin goddesses all at the same time by patriarchal cultures and religions.”

And because I love her music as much as her style, here’s her new single with Miguel called “PrimeTime”:
