Catching up with all things Janelle Monáe ....
The High Funkstress of Fierceness performed at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert at in Oslo, Norway last weekend. Monáe dedicated her anthem "Cold War" to the three 2011 Nobel Peace Prize winners—Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee of Libya and Tawakkul Karman of Yemen.
"There was once a time when I didn’t feel empowered as a young African-American woman. So I wrote this song so that you, no matter what your color is, all women and young girls can find their power," said the ridiculously talented singer/songwriter.
"'Cold War' is a powerful anthem that carries a universal message about personal courage and individual empowerment," adds ArjanWrites. "The artist could not have picked a more perfect song to perform that celebrated the Nobel Peace Prize win of three women who relentlessly advocate the equal rights of women."
