Congratulations are in order for Janelle Monáe. The Grammy nominated singer will be named Billboard’s Rising Star at the 2013 Billboard Women in Music event.
“Being recognized for your hard work and passion is always humbling and encouraging. I feel honored Billboard has taken note of my journey in the music industry thus far,” Monáe said in a statement. “I hope by receiving this award I’m encouraging aspiring acts to stay true to their own artistic visions and never give up.”
Billboard Editorial Director, Bill Werde is thrilled to acknowledge and celebrate the singer’s talents. “From her distinctive style to her unexpected collaborations, Janelle is truly carving her own path in this industry,” Werde shared in a statement.

Issa, Anthony, Sterling … Oh My! This Is Who We’re Rooting For At The Golden Globes
Another year, another award show … but this time around a few new names have made the nominations cut.
The 2018 Golden Globes nominees were announced on Monday and some of our favorites like Anthony Anderson, his show “black-ish”, Denzel Washington (“Roman J. Israel, Esq”), Octavia Spencer (“The Shape Of Water”) and Sterling K. Brown (“This Is Us”) made the list again. But some newbies were announced that have us giddy like it’s Christmas morning.
First up, we’re super glad that “Get Out” is being recognized, although it’s in the “Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical” category (womp) and to see David Kaluuya getting some love is pretty dope.
In addition, one of our FAVE singer is now being recognized for her acting prowess! Mary J. Blige scored a nod for her supporting role in “Mudbound” and we can’t wait to see what she wears to the big show.
And although this is Issa Rae’s second year being a Golden Globe nominee, we’re just as excited as if it were her first! Oh, and maybe the Globes will get it right this year (wink, wink).
