Doin' da Tightrope

Oh to be so limber!

Janelle Monae in this video is very reminiscent of a young, lithe and prettier female James Brown (I think the choreographer surely was tapping into her/his inner Godfather of Soul.)

Maybe it's the hairstyle...and I suspect very intentional in design. (I expect someone will comment, "Well, no duh!")

A Howdy and a thanks to blogger, Russell Beets, and his blog: Mapped By What Surrounded Them

I don't know: JB was mighty pretty! How about his Bill Robinson bit around 2:20? He was moonwalking before Michael Jackson was born.

Janelle is really fluid -- she appears to have no bones in her legs.

They are both fantastic. Thanks for the toe tappers.
