In a recent interview, Janelle Monae, who I happen to like, addressed rumors of her homosexuality, which I could care less about, by discussing her fashion choices.
If you’re unfamiliar, Ms. Monae, she wears what she calls a ‘uniform’ – a black suit, tie, and ‘saddle shoes.’
But I’m gonna throw a lil shade….how is this original? What I remember about wearing a uniform was that I didn’t have to think much about what I was going to wear.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I kinda like the gimmick. And in R&B these days, everybody’s gotta have something.
Perhaps there’s originality in the simplicity and the repetition.
I don’t think this detracts from Janelle Monae, her music is phenomenal. I would like to see her do something else … original. Not head shaven original. Her hair is original enough.
I want more pics like this:
