My girl Janelle Monáe just released a music video for the title-track from her 2013 album, Electric Lady. I saw Monáe at Bonnaroo, and she quickly became one of my favorite female pop artists. Her blend of funk, pop, and soul is sure to make you “shake like a lil earthquake.” Enjoy.
Beyoncé, eat your heart out! Enjoy.
Bonnaroo Tip of the Day: Flamethrowers are great for cooking food, or killing friends.

I hate Janelle Monáe. Actually, I love Janelle Monáe. But, I hate that she’s playing at the same time as The Orwells. It’s the shittiest decision I have to make, other than the whole fucking Chvrches Vs Vampire Weekend VS Neutral Milk Hotel debacle. But it’s a decision Monáe will win. Her funk, soul , R&B swagger is infectious. And baby, I’m addicted. The way she sings, moves, and dresses is all cool, all the time. “Black and white tux, ain’t no need for no other colors.” Live, I’m expecting a full brass band, and toes taping from here to Japan. Keep it cool…
