YAY! I love the congruent reinvention…that was very needed and was great. Like Monae Prince-i-fied (in style and music) but still so Janelle……
UNTIL that rapping part. Yeesh. Right back to the black suit we’ve seen too many times and really really bad rhymes. Not bad enough to kill it but pretty bad all the same.

I know, right? I love the musical nuances that occasionally sound a bit dull (disapointing…also Erykah Badu seems to get crazier as she ages) but then they shift in Marvin Gaye soul territory that just isn’t seen in female musicians….so ripe with potential to own major beyond gender musical greatness.

SPeaking of Erykah Badu (who reminds me of music’s gwyneth paltrow…there’s way more talent there but also a sense of skinny smugness that links the two in my mind).
Taking a glitter bath is the CRAZIEST THING. Oh my god. Glitter in your vag? Ew ew ew.
Official release for this vid ended up being done with the substantially less sexy Amanda Palmer. But she didn’t end up all pissed off probably cause she didn’t have glitter in her vag.

I couldn’t bring myself to finish watching the first video, not because it is tasteless and misogyny in its purest form but mainly because the song is just so bad.

REad the article link above before looking at the vids. It explains it all.
