December has already been an exciting month for Janelle Monáe, with the petite powerhouse already celebrating her 29th birthday and clocking in a fierce appearance on The Queen Latifah Show. That's not all she's had in store, with the recent unveiling of her latest spot with COVERGIRL for their #GirlsCan campaign.
Janelle joins fellow COVERGIRL spokeswomen and music makers P!nk, Katy Perry, Queen Latifah and more to challenge, encourage and empower young girls through #GirlsCan. The message of the movement isn't lost on more mature women either, who can also always use a dose of positivity and encouragement in their lives from artists who they dig.
We are definitely digging Ms. Monáe, and she shares her #GirlsCan story in this COVERGIRL video. Of course, music is central to her life, and we see shots of her from the studio to the stage, but that's not all that she's passionate about. Janelle speaks on some of the other things that are important to her, and being true to herself, not conforming and being a mentor to others are all a part of her beautiful puzzle.
Whether you're young or old, female or male, press play to get a good word from Janelle.
