Cover Girl Mod: Janelle Monae Covers ‘Jones Magazine’ (Check Out The 2nd Annual Winter Arts & Entertainment Issue)

“We Are Young” singer and six time Grammy nominee Janelle Monae rocks her signature black and white tuxedo and pompadour on the cover of Jones Magazine‘s 2nd Winter Arts & Entertainment issue. The detailing on her huge black bow tie gives her look a little holiday glam.

After giving the world and fashion naysayers the rundown on her signature tux at the 2012 Black Girls Rock Awards, we adore Janelle Monae even more:

“When I started my music career, I was a maid. I used to clean houses. My mother was a proud janitor. My stepfather, who raised me like his very own, worked at the post office and my father was a trashman.  They all wore uniforms and that’s why I stand here today, in my black and white, and I wear my uniform to honor them.”

What do you think of Janelle Monae’s cover?
