Our national nightmare is over: Janelle Monáe’s new album is coming and ahead of its June release, the star has released a new music video with lots of nudity, sex, partying and… Pokemon onesie?
I’ve been waiting for Monáe’s new album since 2018 after listening to them all Dirty computer– her last album – a dozen times in one day after its release. And now we know her forthcoming fourth album, Age of Pleasurecoming soon on June 9th. And to get everyone excited about this news, Monáe released “Lipstick Lover,” a new single from the album, along with a music video for the track. A brief warning that this is the video very insecure for work. Be careful where you like this great new song. But you should check it out, because at the end you can see Monáe wearing a piece of it Pokemon-Themed clothing.
In the video (The film is age restricted and can only be viewed on YouTube) we see the singer/songwriter/actress enjoying a fun party that also appears to be an orgy, or the closest thing to an orgy you can throw while simultaneously uploading your video to YouTube and other sites may. After all the sexual fun, and after singing a song that’s already stuck in my head, Monáe wakes up the next morning, brushes her teeth, and quickly jumps into a pool after someone. And she makes it all in a flareon onesie.
I’ll be honest I just started this new video to enjoy her new song and not to stumble upon any content Kotaku dot com. But here we are. And now I have to ask myself: Is Flareon Monáe’s favorite Pokémon? Or did she just want some? Pokemon onesie? And how long will it take to dry this adorable garment after a dip in the pool? Boy, those fancy Hollywood guys live a different life than me.
kotaku reached out to Monáe and her PR team.
Anyway, if you don’t mind, I’ll listen to “Lipstick Lover” one more time (one more time) and then I’ll be hooked Dirty computer again while waiting for June 9th and the release of Age of Pleasure.
