Singer Janelle Monae is joining Pink as a new spokeswoman for CoverGirl. The 26-year old songstress tweeted her excitement over her new gig saying, “I’m strong. I’m beautiful. I AM A COVERGIRL!!!!“
Monae might have been meant to be a CoverGirl, telling Vogue that she grew up loving the ads that models like Tyra Banks starred in.
“I’d go buy magazines. I’d see Tyra Banks [in the CoverGirl ads] and I’d think, Wow, she’s beautiful. It never looked like she had on too much makeup. There was just something clean and classic about her face.” She added, “Becoming a CoverGirl is truly an honor and a gift. It opens up a new platform for me to inspire women to feel stronger, braver and more beautiful inside and out.”
I look forward to seeing Janelle and Pink’s ads in magazines…wonder if they’re going to be adding anyone else to the CG lineup.
