Cosmic Janelle

C'est un long article échevelé de Jesse Dorris dans Time Magazine du 9 septembre, I Have Sung the Future, autopsiant le phénomène Janelle Monáe, qui m'a conduit à écouter cette chose. C'est du bon R&B et l'image supplée à une puissance mesurée. La photo à elle-seule vaut le détour. Elle est née au Kansas il y a 27 ans.


So you think I'm alone?
But being alone's the only way to be
When you step outside
You spend life fighting for your sanity

This is a cold war
You better know what you're fighting for
This is a cold war
Do you know what you're fighting for?

If you want to be free
The underground is the only place to be
'Cause in this life
You spend time running from depravity

This is a cold war
Do you know what you're fighting for?
This is a cold war
You better know what you're fighting for
This is a cold war
You better know what you're fighting for
This is a cold war
Do you know what you're fighting for?

Bring wings to the weak and bring grace to the strong
May all evil stumble as it flies in the world
All the tribes comes and the mighty will crumble
We must brave this night and have faith in love

I'm trying to find my peace
I was made to believe there's something wrong with me
And it hurts my heart
Lord have mercy, ain't it plain to see?

That this is a cold war
Do you know what you're fighting for
This is a cold war
You better know what you're fighting for

This is a cold...
This is a cold war
You better know what you're fighting for

Do you know? Is a cold...
Do you?
Do you?

Is a cold ...
You better know what you're fighting for

Remarquable de culot et loin d'être idiote, elle m'a fait penser aux Bogdanoff jeunes, eux-aussi venus d'un ancien futur. Malgré ses 1m52 il y a du Grace Jones en elle, mais fumable. C'est fabriqué, mais avec talent et elle en rajoute. Elle a tout compris. Dans le genre "allumée de la fusée", il y a aussi Erykah Badu ; pour la prochaine fois.
