Janelle Monae Walks A “Tightrope” In Her New Video

We here at The Frisky are big Janelle Monae fans. She’s got a style and sound that’s indisputably all her own. Her latest video, “Tightrope,” is no exception. It’s Beyonce meets Lady Gaga meets Rihanna meets Little Richard meets Lil’ Kim — or something like that. Clocking in at a solid five minutes, the video takes place at the “Palace of the Dogs” insane asylum, where dancing is prohibited on account of its magical qualities. We recommend joining Janelle by standing up in your cubicle and shaking a leg or two. TGIF! [YouTube]
