Janelle Monáe Steps Into The Shade Room With A Message: ‘I Shall Continue To Evolve’
In addition to Janelle poppin’ off on Twitter, she also dropped by The Shade Room‘s comment section to leave a now-deleted message for the naysayers.
Specifically, she shared that—even in a suit and tie—she was stealing other people’s men, and her style left its mark.
“I literally took so many of y’all n***as just wearing 1 black and white suit for over a decade. Can’t no artist even wear black and white without being compared to me. I did that.”
Janelle continued, noting that she’s going to be a trendsetting icon in ANY clothing style she embraces.
“I shall continue to evolve + remain an iconic trendsetting Freeazzmuthaf**a naked, tittles out, in haute couture, in a suit, or in a Halloween costume.”
Finally, she powerfully ended her now-deleted comment by saying, “Get off my areolas!”
