“We can beat them, for ever and ever”

 

Back in 2014 we told you about Janelle Monáe’s cover of "Heroes", which she covered for an anti-bullying campaign and released on the Pepsi Beats of the Beautiful Game LP.

 

At the time she told Rolling Stone magazine: “Bowie knows what’s up. He’s a fan and I’m a fan of him. The respect is mutual. I hear from his wife Iman that he’s a huge supporter of me, the way I dress and my music. I just hope that we made him proud.”

 

Janelle promoted "Heroes" with an appearance on Late Show with David Letterman at the time.

 

Now Iman has reposted a moving Instagram tribute by Janelle, originally posted on January 10th, 2018:

Janelle Monáe: 

 

Thinking of you my ziggy Star dust moonage day dream .

Even in your ascension to another frequency you still manage to guide me , and all of us who you inspire .

You continue to teach me what freedom looks like through the gifts you left behind .

You continue to help me and so many feel comfortable during some of our most vulnerable and fearful moments . I often find myself asking , “What would Bowie say , what would he do?” and I just go with that . Lol

Thank you for living your life as a free ass muhfugga . Freedom ain’t always free and it comes with consequences sometimes , but you still chose it tho and for that I’m thankful for you .

Sending love to your beautiful wife Iman and your family on this day . ⚡️✨

An incredibly classy Janelle (see montage), made a heartfelt speech at the Grammy Awards on Sunday, when she spoke out in support of the #TimesUp movement. Watch it over at Rolling Stone.
