Janelle Monae Quote:

Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable.” –Janelle Monรกe

55th Annual GRAMMY Awards“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 thatโ€™s why I stand here today, in my black and white, and I wear my uniform to honor them.

This is a reminder that I have work to do. I have people to uplift. I have people to inspire. And today, I wear my uniform proudly as a Cover Girl. I want to be clear, young girls, I didnโ€™t have to change who I was to become a Cover Girl. I didnโ€™t have to become perfect because Iโ€™ve learned throughout my journey that perfection is the enemy of greatness.

Embrace what makes you unique, even if it makes others uncomfortable.” –ย Janelle Monรกeย Quote
