It seems like just yesterday when we announced that P!nk was the latest addition to the Covergirl roster (okay, it was last week, but still…). However, turns out the beauty giant isn’t quite finished yet- Covergirl has ANOTHER music industry darling up its sleeve. Yesterday the company announced that Janelle Monáe would be joining the ranks of Drew Barrymore, Taylor Swift and P!nk as the brand’s latest face. The ads, which premiere in the September issue of VOGUE magazine, showcase Miss Monáe working her trademark retro bouffant, rosy cheeks, and some statement red lips. Let’s be real: if anyone can convince us to clean out our drawer to make room for even more makeup, it’s Janelle Monáe….

The double-page VOGUE spread features Janelle chilling backstage and jumping in the studio, showing off her trademark black tie wardrobe (oh, and bright pink nail polish!). How does Janelle’s campaign compare to the new P!nk ads? Let us know! And if you suddenly feel the urge to listen to “We Are Young” over and over again afterward, we totally don’t blame you…
