Word(ful) Wednesday: Janelle Monáe's "Tightrope"

Janelle Monáe and her extremely catchy tune, "Tightrope," off her sophomore album, "The Arch Android," are both just too cute for words. I especially love the lyrics, which, in my book, speak all-the-way truth: No matter how successful you are or how low you go, somebody always seems to be standing at the ready to either take you down a peg or two or, worse, applaud your downfall. The point is to find balance for you—damn what anyone else thinks. Loves it!

The "Tightrope" video was floating around on the FaceBook pages of a few of my friends last week; I've been finger poppin' and James Brown-ing it to the beat ever since. just thought I'd share. I hope you like it as much as I do.
