Janelle Monae – Time for a Change?

The gorgeous Janelle Monae rocked it out on stage with Bruno Mars and B.O.B at the 2011 Grammy’s.

We are all used to Janelle Monae’s signature pompadour and tuxedo. A friend of mine made the comment, while watching the Grammy’s “I like her style but she can do something different. Wear a color. Take that pompadour down.

I must admit, I too was hoping that she would have stepped out in something unexpected at such a big awards show…maybe a twist-out or a colored tuxedo. Just something different.

I guess we were all hoping for too much. Lol.

Below are pics I found floating the web of Janelle Monae where she is not wearing the signature pompadour. I personally think the pompadour could be her attempts to avoid the harsh elements and styling of her hair as an entertainer, but I’m really liking her overall look in the two pics below.

Pompadour or not, she is an absolute beauty!


Would you like to see Janelle Monae rock an ‘out’ style more often?

i'm fine with her hair, she could switch up the black and white tuxe look though!

She is so pretty. I think her "uniform" so to speak is a way for us to focus solely on her music. Its like you are focusing on my voice instead of worrying about what's the next thing I'll wear or how is my hair gonna be the next time you see me.

I think she is very talented and beautiful though. She should switch it up from time to time.

I love her music…her cd is awesome and she gives a great performance…but I really do wish she would give a little variety. I understand what jlowman1 is saying though about using the uniform as a method to focus solely on the music, but I still end up thinking about the lack of variety.
