Singer Janelle Monae has been tapped to be the new face of CoverGirl Cosmetics. The energetic songstress will debut a 10-page ad campaign in Vogue's September issue, which hits shelves next week.

Monae, who's become quite the trendsetter since arriving on the scene with her signature hairdo and black-tie ensembles, is ready to embrace her latest role.

"I believe it's time that women truly owned their superpowers and used their beauty and strength to change the world around them," she says.

Last week, singer Pink joined the CoverGirl roster stating, "Joining a group of women who have always inspired me — to laugh out loud, let my guard down, or play around with my beauty look — is such an honor."
