American singer and actress Janelle Monáe Robinson dressed up as The Grinch for Halloween.
The 35-year-old shared photos and video if her Halloween costume via her official Instagram page on Saturday, October 30.
“Mean lil’ GRINCH,” she captioned one of her posts in which she shared a short 56 seconds video of her playing the character.
The Grinch is a fictional character created by Dr. Seuss. The hairy, pot-bellied, pear-shaped, snub-nosed creature with a cat-like face and cynical personality is best known as the main character of the 1957 children’s book How the Grinch Stole Christmas!.
In full-color adaptations, the character which made it’s first appearance 67 years ago is typically colored avocado green.
In 2020, Monáe channels her inner Chucky for Halloween. Chucky is a fictional Child’s Play character. The character is the main antagonist of the Child’s Play slasher film franchise.
Born, December 1, 1985, Monáe left her mark on 2010s R&B with an energized retro-futuristic sound wrapped in theatrical science-fiction concepts.
After she spent years grinding away in the Atlanta underground, the Grammy-nominated singer capitalized on support from OutKast’s Big Boi and developed into one of the most dynamic artists of her time, fusing soul, funk, hip-hop, and new wave— among other genres — with a spirited approach that seemed to treat entertainment and art as indivisible.
Occupied with acting roles in two of the biggest films of 2016, the award-winning Moonlight and Hidden Figures, Robinson recorded intermittently, including but not limited to a part in the multi-artist charity recording “This Is for the Girls,” songs for the Hidden Figures soundtrack, and a contribution to Jidenna’s The Chief.
More acting roles followed, including a supporting role in the 2019 Harriet Tubman biopic Harriet, appearing as noted feminist and child welfare-advocate Dorothy Pitman Hughes in the 2020 Gloria Steinem biopic The Glorias, and a starring role in the 2020 horror film Antebellum. Also in 2020, she contributed the song “Turntables” to the documentary film All In: The Fight for Democracy.
