For the record, I'd be perfectly happy with her uncovering her areolae.

Loved the song immediately when I first heard the album. Nice video. Janelle hits the spot!

Not new it's pulled from the emotion picture that aired right when the project dropped.

Honestly cannot get on board with this song, I find it cringy as hell, and I think she's an incredible talent.

That's how I felt about a lot of this album to begin with. I'm enjoying it now, especially the live versions I've seen, despite still feeling that the lyrics are a bit cringey in parts. I like the groove of this one, though, which has a nice flow to it - even though it seems to me to reference Madonna's 'Get Into The Groove' almost as consciously as 'Americans' references 'Let's Go Crazy'.

We know that. It's just about celebrating the song and video itself.

She's greedy because she's making a living? Stupid ideology.

no because her music is geared towards commercialism

So she should make weird music that no one wants to hear?

Your logic is incredibly unstable. Did you piss on Prince's music when "Let's Go Crazy" hit #1? Or "When Doves Cry", "Kiss", "Batdance"? Did you get butthurt when he played MTV US or MTV Europe or Arsenio a few times, to large commercial audiences? Were your standards abused when he made a highly commercial album like Musicology, or a song like "Cream" which was all over the place? Did you get to puff up your pretend-fringed chest when he partnered with a retail corporation like Target and made commercials for Lotusflow3r? No? Thought not.

And Janelle is getting things for free? JM changes with every album. Is that not growth or back n' forth, as you describe it? Your logic is so flawed, it's not even logic.
