Whether you fully comprehend Janelle Monae's android themed musical compositions or not, there is no denying that 2010 was her breakout year on a mainstream level. Before this year, Janelle has been known as the underground artist signed to Diddy's Bad Boy Records, dazzled with the pompadour, perfectly tailored suits, strongly believing in time travel and androids, and for avoiding live television appearances. This year, the 25-year-old Janelle broke out and graced several major magazines, has been nominated for two Grammy's for 2011 for her latest album The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III), the Associated Press just named “The ArchAndroid” the best album of 2010, and even appeared for her first live television performance on The David Letterman show earlier this year. Now, Janelle is pushing the envelope a little bit further by becoming the new face of Flip video camera, a roughly $200 mini video camera that prints your favorite artist on the outer shell. The Archandroid Flip "Janelle Monae" edition features art from Janelle Monae’s debut full-length album and has featured an ad campaign in major cities with Janelle's face and album advertising Flip camera. With her new ad, we are only left to wonder if Janelle fans will think she is selling out on her underground persona and seeking publicity and financial gain and if they will still support her work. We have no word yet on how much Janelle has landed for her partnership with Flip cam, but we do know that this is a sign of things to come edging towards for 2011.
