I like Call The Law on the Idlewild soundtrack. It's kinda funny.

i like the grace jones, james brown beat poet element to her. now she just needs a upgrade in songs and she could be really onto something. she is cool and with a knockout song or two she could hit big.

I just saw her Tightrope video and I loved it!! I thought the video and the song had an Outkast feeling to it then I saw Big Boi! Loved the James Brown esque type of dancing. She can definitely move. The way she moves her legs are crazy!!

Still got to dig a bit deeper into her work to make up my mind on her. I've only heard the Tightrope song so far and it was just a few weeks ago. But I felt, early on, she is def. a quirky artist who wouldn't let her cute face rule her career. Now I'll figure out whether that's her real self or just a disguise to sell. I'm hoping that the former is the case, of course.

^^^I don't see her stuff getting mainstream popularity.
You're right:D Not the kind of female artist whose playground is the core mainstream and that's not something to feel sad about as long as she can do her thing and make a living out of it.

I can't wait long enough for her new album, I love Janelle Monae. Beautiful girl with a uniqueness about her, and makes her stand out above everyone else. Love her moves too, her front moonwalk is epic. :D

What's a stan? I don't get into slang, so don't know what it means.

I keep hearing her name mentioned, so I'm gonna check her out. So far she sounds very good. (Better than the stuff that is mainstream right now imo)

Her album is AMAZING!!! There is something really special with this women. It's almost scary. She got the IT. She reminds me of Michael, but not in the way Usher or Justin Timberlake do. She's not like Michael but she's different. It's the way she talks what she says that reminds of Michael. How she said songs started coming to her in her sleep. In dreams. How she keeps a recorder (i-phone recorder. Sign of the times huh?) next to her at all-times. Cause the songs just come out of no where to her... To me that's something really special when people start saying that.


The ArchAndriod is on the greatest albums of our generation. (imo)

I thought I was the only one who saw similarities to MJ..by the way MJ is Janelle's favorite singer..she said this on twitter..I think this is cool..my favorite female artist loves MJ!! The ArchAndroid REALLY is the greatest album of this generation!!

Here is what she replied to on twitter!
GTblue Is it just me...or does @JanelleMonae sometimes kind of sound like a young Michael Jackson? (Jackson 5 days) loving her CD!!! about 3 hours ago via Twitter for iPhone Retweeted by 1 person
