Brandy and Janelle Monae

Pop superstar Janelle Monáe showered R&B superstar Brandy Norwood with praise when the two bumped into each other on the red carpet at the Atlantic Records 2015 BET Awards after party in LA on Sunday.

“You are beautiful! You are stunning,” said Janelle, as Brandy stood speechless. “I love this hair… I love this… (Janelle looks down at Brandy’s frock) I love everything!” she said. “And I’m just so excited for you,” Janelle added. “You’re just getting started. You’re just getting started. She’s just getting started!”

The beautiful moment was captured on cell phone video by The UK’s Grapejuice.net celebrity blog.

    Greece has defaulted. Why do people continue to believe that socialism, in any form works?

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    Janelle Monae = Risk It All

  • Chitsngiggles

    When did Janelle start doing twerking music. I thought she was too classy for all that. :

  • Chitsngiggles

    So that means we can go there for cheap or Nah? I got birthday plans to make.

  • iWasteTime

    I love them both!

  • prynsexxx

    Is Brandy’s wig from her wig line? Does she even still have a wig line?

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Just getting started? Does Janelle not know that Brandy has been in the business for 20 years and doin the damn thing the whole time? The girl stay workin.

  • prynsexxx

    Yeah I read that their banks SHUT DOWN!

  • Femme404

    Greek citizens are standing in line as we speak for a $50 dollar take out limit at ATMS….I’d stay away.

    Off Topic: Has anyone figured out a functional way to navigate the comments with this new format? I loved that I could simply scroll down to the last comments and remember the number, or timeframe the last time someone commented, but this $hit HERE! If someone is replying to me, or me to them, I can’t keep up with what anyone else said trying to find THAT $hit. I’m frustrated!

  • Chitsngiggles

    It seems like every place I wanna go is messed up. Damn.

  • iWasteTime

    Brandy don’t look as skinty in these pics !

  • Chitsngiggles

  • Cheddup Already Damn

    I’d be missing people’s replies lololol

  • Di Ana

    Her twerking is taste-fully done.

  • Femme404

    Paris is always wonderful…as long as you avoid the Uber taxi riots…the secularist riots…anti-Semitic riots…. and civil unrest you should be fine.

  • iWasteTime

    She said it’s not twerking, It’s YOGA!

  • Torae

    Brandy is very humble despite all of her accomplishments she is very humble.

  • Letmecommentbeforeicant

    Is this a post secretly saying that Brandy was just inducted into the Janelle Monae cult, if so, can I be chosen and still claim Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior?

  • Cheddup Already Damn

    I’m going to eat chicken tacos and rice for lunch. #youcare

  • Chitsngiggles

    What if I said I don’t get the hype of Janelle. She’s gorgeous don’t get me wrong. But I just don’t mesh with her music or her entertainment. But white folks love her. I guess that’s all that matters.

  • Cheddup Already Damn

    Agreed!
    Maybe that’s her deal since she killed that lady :shrug:

  • Di Ana

    lol… okay… this should be directed at Chitsniggles though…. lol

  • Chitsngiggles

    Yawn…..its ass shaking just like the rest.

  • Cheddup Already Damn

    I saw her in person once and she gives off good energy. I only like a few of her songs but I’d consider myself a fan…

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Janelle is so classy….I just love her aura!! Even Jidenna stands out :) Brande’s skin was point last night

  • Di Ana

    She does it with class…. leave my Janelle alone you….

  • http://batman-news.com Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

  • iWasteTime

    jking…lol
    It took me a while too.
    I liked tight rope a lot, I like Jidenna
    I like what she says, how she articulates it and how humble and talented she is.

  • Chitsngiggles

    I’m not very interested in visiting European places like those. I want to go to Greece. Turkey. Africa. I want to see my history.

  • Cheddup Already Damn

    You must can’t :shakebutt: LOL
    WHALE, can yew?
    The people wanna know!

  • Cheddup Already Damn

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    I cant get my favorite jeans over my azz :( Had to pull away from the table for a week or two

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    That list is too long. Brandy is not a pioneer of any of those things you named. Not even close.

  • Carrington

    I don’t want to do all these extra clicktations though. What if you made a comment that people replied to? I have to click on YOUR replies and then mine and by then, someone posted, “new post” and I’ve been scrollin back and forth in this b*tch for 30 minutes and then when I get to the new post, y’all don’ went to lunch.

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    Can somebody explain to me what Janelle meant by Brandy is just getting started? Brandy started on that show with Thea I thought.

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    if you click in your comment bubble. You will only see the replies to you.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

  • Di Ana

  • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

    Yeah I was confused.

  • KDub

    Alot of black folks love her too

  • Chitsngiggles

    New post on Puffy Trap

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    I think she was trying to pay homage. Letting her know that she killing them, and she’s young so, she’s jut getting started. Bigger things are still to come.

    Shyt I don’t know. But that sounded good in my head.

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    LMAO!!! Ok I was wondering…. Just in my head that convo should have been reversed.

  • Letmecommentbeforeicant

    It’s not twerking, just stretching and flexing on the _____

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    +100

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    Scooby Doo face for real.. They asked Janelle on the red carpet who she was wearing and she said she doesn’t like to give the designer away….

  • KDub

    I love Primetime with Miguel

  • KDub

    No I think that’s it. Smokey had said something too about the new generation of entertainment was just getting started in his speech too

  • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

    *rolls eyes* I guess. Fine.

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    OK? My mom wants to go and I was trying to do a cruise but GOOD LAWD, its 4000 a piece just for the cruise, not even the flights are included. Mama I love you but Sandals here you come.

  • Cheddup Already Damn

    AInt my fault :D Yourns neither LOL
    KONA

  • SummerBaby

    Brandy trying to get chose ?

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    I see Brandy brought her lil brother out.

  • 88

    Janelle know she lying.

  • LuvMyBrownSkin?

    They are both beautiful and talented women.

  • Noize4u

    I take it that Janelle now knows how many zeros are in her bank account , she’s arrived.

  • kgirl33

    I love Janelle Monae! Hopefully she stays positive and not sell out.

  • Lolalao

    I wondered the same..

  • Chocolate Bliss

    Take another look. Janelle shaded Lil Kim at the end of the Bad Boy segment.

  • Monica Howard

    yasssssssssssssssss hunni

  • Floriduhh Evans

    Awww ?

  • ShelbyMoore

    Sound good to me when I read what you said too.

  • LordeAmbler

    Janelle want some of Brandi goodies. Lmafo.

  • CommonKnowledge

    Obviously she meant it as a compliment. She was trying to tell Brandy that she has not “peaked” in her career & that her best years are still ahead of her.

  • Tiffany Miller

    Alright Janelle!!!!! PRIIIIIIIMETIME!!

  • BRING THE PAYNE

    Lol so you just NOT gone let brandy be great aunty 2…as we both sing,”SITTIN UP IN MY CELL”:))))

  • Mona Lisa

    It sounds like it was love at first sight, and Brandy left her speechless because what she said made no sense. Brandy has been around since the 90’s.

  • BZandaz

    It is always a beautiful thing to see black women complimenting and uplifting each other rather than being catty or competitive…

  • Everclear1972

    You’re dumb.

    The main reason that Greece is in the situation is because they allow a high level of tax evasion which has been going on for decades.

    Greece should never have been allowed in the Eurozone but the then-government officials with the help of Goldman Sacs cooked the books.

    Hell even Goldman Saks bet against Greece so they knew that Greece would never be able to pay the money back.

  • Mo’nie

    you can visit the nature isle of the Caribbean. Dominica ( not the Dominican Republic)… Black sand beaches, rivers, waterfalls. Boiling lakes. Etc etc etc… Can you tell I love my country? We’d be happy to have you

  • kekeb

    Janelle Monáe is SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!
    This is a good look for Brandy. Love the hair and shoes (other pictures)

  • Guess Who

    …she’s just getting started? Started doing WHAT? Brandy has been in showbidness damn near all of her life.

  • Karla Smith

    Not sure what the “you’re just getting started” comment meant. Brandy has been successful and relevant for over 20 years now…#confused

  • Karla Smith

    But I bet the designer WANTED her to give him/her props, cuz that’s why designers choose celebs to wear their shit, so they can put the name out there. I liked that Janelle wasn’t trying to sound like a label whore, but she should have given the designer their props (the only reason she shouldn’t have is if the designer told her not to, which would be dumb)

  • Bernadette Jackson

    Right? Trying to increase her bank account since beign a robot does not play. I loved her last album but clearly doing that yoga/corny mess is supposed to revive her promising career.

  • Bernadette Jackson

    Tasteful my butt. It’s corny. And for all the attention it received I doubt that it’s turning into sales. I have yet to hear that song on the radio.

  • Bernadette Jackson

    Next she’s going to do a song called, “Pilates.”

  • Heidi Lark

    the shade…”youre just getting started”…LOL

  • rodt

    It does if people dont cheat on paying their fare share. the poor did the work and paid theirs it was all the shipping and and oligarchs that have skipped on their taxes and rather let their homeland burn than pay what they owe.

  • rodt

    these two are amazing

  • chappedlippz

    Brandy look scared…..boom boom (from The Game)

  • Yea

    That’s sweet
