Wired for the Weekend: Learning to Tightrope

In the spirit of Mimi’s Weekend musical interlude, I want to add Janelle Monae’s video to the mix.
(I know I’m late to the party on this but can’t help sharing it anyway!)

I have a wedding to go to next weekend – can I learn this dance in time to rock the dance floor?
I think, yes! (I already have the tuxedo, in jumpsuit form of course – photographic evidence anon.)

Cuz whether you’re high or low, you got to tip on the tightrope!
(The famous McQ by Alexander McQueen tuxedo jumpsuit.)

    Janelle Monae is my hero. I wish I could rock a tux and a pomp like her.

  2. I’m so in love with Janelle Monae and this dance. Please bust out the moves at the wedding — if you can get it on film, even better!

    • I have some great video of Minh-Ha dancing to Madonna in her tiny Manhattan apartment kitchen — but she would KILL ME if I posted it. Suffice to say that Minh-Ha is a fun dancer, whose best move thus far is “the snake around.” I will report back on her “tightrope” at a later point!

    that’s kind of hilarious…I also just moved from blogger to wordpress! Also I’ve had this song on repeat for the last two weeks. love it!

  4. i say we start a threadbared petition to ask mimi to post about her new short ‘do!

    i’m still working on tightrope. what a dignified dance! well, it would be if i had more balance . . .

  5. I was just lamenting the lack of androgyny in a lot of rock/popular music these days. But Janelle Monae gives me hope! And she makes some damn fine music to boot!
