Slacker Chic of the Week: Janelle Monáe

Photobucket
What could I possibly say about Janelle Monáe that hasn't been said before? This chick is original, vibrant and cooler than a polar bear's toenails. She's got amazing style, an inventive sound, and performs with a passion not often seen these days. But don't just take my word for it. Check out some of her best songs from Audition or Metropolis on Youtube for yourself. (I personally recommend "Peachtree Blues", "Violet Stars Happy Hunting" and her new single "Many Moons".) I often call Janelle the female Andre 3000, because of her ability to be indescribable and totally fearless with fashion and fusing different eras of the past to make phenomenal music for the future. In fact, she's worked with Andre (aka the coolest cat on the planet) on "Call The Law" and "In Your Dreams." from the Idlewild soundtrack. Ironic! This woman is definetely someone to watch-and not just because her star is on the rise, but because she's so damn interresting! Viva la Monáe!
