Monday Music Muse: Janelle Monae

Good Morning Honeys,

The Passions had a rough night.  Couldn’t sleep a wink.  Logo was staring at me from the flat screen – their NewMusicNow video music series – and when Janelle Monae’s new video TIGHTROPE came on – it made me wanna sit up and notice.  There is something about this artist that has raised my eyebrow for quite a while.  You know I like to shoot the shit on orientation, but honestly, there is so much more that meets the eye on this one.  However, digging just a little deeper, in an interview she did on Ask Ellen, when asked about her sexual preference – her response was, well let’s just say “interesting.”

I love when I’m surrounded by very fearless individuals that don’t worry too much about how others may perceive them, their artistic vision or sexual orientation. I like people who are aware of stereotypes but they don’t care too much about it and they live their life very free. I like givers, lovers, imaginative minds. I just really like artists.

Hmmmm……what do you think?  I posted the vid here.  Take a look at her style and swagger and you tell me what you think.  And while you’re at it, check the music and check the dance moves.  She’s kinda fly.  Free thinking, trend resisting, extremely beautiful and blatantly androgynous – her latest CD ArchAndroid comes out in May.  I have a feeling we should GO GET THAT!
