YMMV: Janelle MonŠe

  • Awesome Music:
    • The ArchAndroid in general. Especially Tightrope.
    • Babopbye Ya! must be heard to be believed. Holy god, it's amazing.
  • Critical Dissonance: Although she often gets rave reviews from critics, she's not particularly well known to the general public.
  • Ear Worm:
    • "T-t-t-tip on the Tightrope!"
    • "Take me back to Wondaland, I gotta get back to Wondaland..."
    • "FASTER and FASTER as you run..."
    • "This is a coooooooooooooooold war..."
    • "Babopbye Yaaaaaa-Ah!"
    • "Q.U.E.E.N."'s bassline is infectiously catchy.
    • "But I really really wanna thank you for dancing 'til the end, you found a way to break out..."
    • "Itís too late, youíre hypnotized, sheís got Dorothy Dandridge eyes..."
  • Epic Riff: "Mushrooms and Roses"; "Come Alive"; "Tightrope (The Wondamix)" (featuring B.O.B. and Lupe Fiasco)
  • Fan Community Nickname: "Fandroids."
  • Moe Moe: Tell me she's not cute. I dare you.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The problems of discrimination, poverty, the stigmas and restrictions of social norms, and finding personal happiness above all else are timeless messages, the fact that they're delivered without any subtlety just makes the songs more powerful.
  • Sweet Dreams Fuel: Her discography is not only inspiring and positive, but very tender and soothing as well. This trope can be invoked as a bedtime playlist.
