I have rarely seen music that I consider worth paying for. Love the style, love the theme, really artistic and really inspired. Wish you would come to Montreal and also wish I had more money so I could buy the tickets haha. (I'll post this on the other album's comments to because they are both included in my thoughts)

Hi Janelle, The first time my wife and I saw you was a few months ago on Centric in your Tightrope video. We liked it right away. We saw you in Kansas City over the Memorial Day weekend with Bruno Mars. Your performance was great! We hope to see you again in Omaha, NE in September. Keep doing your own thing and keep it clean. We like your style.

Milwaukee tonight: good golly, miss Molly. I don't think the Eagles Club Ballroom has seen anything like that since Buddy Holly in '59. I think I lost my jaw on the floor in there. Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 'I Want You Back' was spectacular. Where do we go to bid on the paintings?

I'm curious as to why you don't have your first album, The Audition up here. I've heard it and I think it is amazing and the fans would love to hear it. Just wondering why.

"Cold War" is a huge pillar of support for me. Thank you for sharing it - my life has literally changed thanks to it. Your beauty, your grace and your vision are overwhelming and powerful and I am so happy I found your music.

Loved the show at the Roundhouse, Camden, London! I first heard Janelle whilst on holiday in Barbados - singing Tightrope in April 2010. Every since then I tried to see her live but could never get tickets. I've since introduced Janelle to my 3 children aged 30, 25 and 23... it's not always the younger ones who appreciate true talent. Janelle, you have a mature following too! Love the rock/soul vibe... keep rocking it!

Loved this album. Your theme for this album is so artistic and different from a lot of the other artists out there. I can't wait to see more of your creativity in future albums. =)

Ms. Lady....Your performance on the Grammys has left me speechless! Your band, Bruno, and B.O.B. did an amazing job!! I have watched that performance 10 times and each time it leaves me with a smile on face!! I have never been a person that has ran out and brought CD's. I have purchased four CD's my entire life: Tupac, Makaveli; Lauryn Hill, Miseducation; Robin Thicke, Evolution; and Adele, 19...but I will be adding Janelle Monae, Archandroid to that list! Bravo, Beautiful Lady, Bravo!!!

Can i just say that your uniqueness is amazing. I love how creative your are. You are not afraid to step outside the box. This album is amazing. :)

The Grammy performance is going to take this wonderful women and her band to another planet. As they have taken us on the journey of a lifetime!! This album and others will go down in musical history. I'm all ready for the ride of the century..if only I can quit dancing long enough to put my seat belt on!!! WOW!!!

Musical genius indeed. Keep it up, can't wait for the next album. I hope it's another sci-fi one.

This album is off the chains one of the top ten best of 2010 hands down. She really delivers on this album and the story goes deeper and gets even richer and more intricate. Loved it truly

Sorry, I was speaking on 'Tightrope'. I also love Oh, Maker! Keep the music coming and I wil continue to buy!

OMG! This is the hottest song out there right now! You are a musical genius! Just purchased the CD! This CD should be at the top of the charts!

Amazingly inspiring - I thank you for the music that enables the youth and future generations to open their eyes and minds with arms wide open! Don't ever stop we need more dedicated talent in the music industry. I am in Australia and witness the day to day struggle in the music "scene" here, it is controlled and volatile - it hurts me soul but I stay strong in knowing I will make a difference here. So thank you for the encouraging music!
