Vibe magazine landed two of today's biggest music stars -- Robin Thicke and Janelle Monae -- to celebrate their 20th year anniversary, and only ET can take you behind-the-scenes of their fun photo shoot together!
The magazine is releasing three different covers of their annual mega-packed September/August "Juice" issue this year, and Thicke and Monae are the first cover stars to be revealed.
According to the stylish Monae, the honor of being a Vibe cover girl is all hers.
"I know Vibe was one of the first magazines when I first started, that gave me my big feature," she remembers. "And I remember being so excited, jumping around. My family was excited. I mean, it's in every household pretty much."
As for her experience working with Thicke, whose massive hit single Blurred Lines is being called the song of the summer, she shares that she particularly loves the smooth singer's goofy side!
"I had a ball sharing the Vibe 20th anniversary cover with Robin. Robin Thicke is so funny, I had no idea," she smiles. "We met before, and we performed on the same stage together, and he's always been very sweet, but he was performing -- so to work with him today, I got a chance to, like, get his real personality. We really had a party -- in the middle of the day. It was awesome."
Check out the video to see their infectious chemistry firsthand!
