Janelle Monae has never stifled herself creatively for the sake of anyone’s comfort, and continues to be the rebel she is in her new video for soon-to-be summer anthem, “PYNK.”
It is her second video co-starring rumored girlfriend and Sorry To Bother You actress, Tessa Thompson, and features several other beauties, all celebrating the power of pink.
“PYNK is a brash celebration of creation. self love. sexuality. and pu**y power!” reads the video’s description. “PYNK is the color that unites us all, for pink is the color found in the deepest and darkest nooks and crannies of humans everywhere. PYNK is where the future is born.”
