Janelle Monae Cold war
Janelle Monae get's up close and personal in her new video Cold War. Two words to describe the video recession friendly. The video showed the actual emotion of the singer sans her usual over the top dance moves, pompadour and tuxedos. the video was shot in one take and shows every facial expression possible from twitches in her face to her dramatic eyebrows. I'm particularly drawn to the line "I was made to believe there was some thing wrong with me and it hurts my heart" after which she breaks down in tears. The video was shot at The Palace of the dogs Sanitarium and directed by Wendy Morgan. It's an amazing video and amazing song.
