Janelle Monáe isn’t calling technical support for Dirty Computer anytime soon. The work, which Rated R&B listed on its top 25 R&B albums of 2018, secured Monáe a nomination for Outstanding Music Artist at the 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards.
Monáe, who will go up against performers like Troye Sivan and Brandi Carlile, called her fellow nominees a “dream team” and thanked GLAAD for the nomination.
The GLAAD Media Awards strives to “honor media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues.” Comedian Wanda Sykes and media personality Ross Matthews will host the two award ceremonies in Los Angeles on March 28 and May 4 in New York City.
In other news, Monáe is one of the many performers hitting the stage on music’s biggest night next month. She is nominated for two awards, including Album of the Year (Dirty Computer) and Best Music Video (“Pynk“). Hosted by Alicia Keys, the 61st Annual Grammy Awards airs live on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, at 8 p.m. EST / 5 p.m. PST on CBS.
