Janelle back! Specifically, Janelle and Tessa are back! Have we decided yet if the lovely duo's name is Jessa or Tanelle?
Janelle Monáe debuted her new music video, "PYNK," featuring Grimes, this week, and it is the visual representation of womanhood! In all of their colorful splendor, women are celebrated for their inner strength and outer sexiness in the video.
You may remember the excitement over Tessa Thompson's appearance in Monáe's "Make Me Feel" video, a "San Junipero"-esque exploration of bisexuality. Well, thank the Lord, the two have reunited for Monáe's "PYNK!"
The video is a direct exploration of femininity down to vagina pants, sex cells briefs (with unapologetic pubic hair!) and gyrating glowing black girl bodies.
P*ssy power, indeed.
Needless to say, Twitter was all the way here for the new joint:
