Janelle Monae, Ada Vox & Blair St. Clair

Main Topic: Face the Music: Janelle Monae’s “Dirty Computer”

Janelle Monae has served up a heaping plate of visuals and audios for her new album, but is this set to be her best album ever?  This week “Dirty Computer” faces the music!

 

Catching Up

Juju officiallly, finally says goodbye to his boyfriend - the end of an era; a 5-year one even!  Philly processes the very Trump-era Avengers Infinity War. Johnny rediscovers a darker, more closeted era in his life through old journal entries.

Nurse! (Pop Emergencies)

Johnny’s impression of an ad for Troye Sivan’s new song “Bloom” leads into a discussion on queer artists strange-ass relationship to the media.  Juju gives props to Rupaul’s Drag Race’s Blair St. Clair (I DO declare!) for sharing her experience as a sexual assault victim on national television.  Philly is enraged that American Idol sent home Ada Vox, as well as other interesting artists of color, in favor of mostly milk-toast, typically less talented contestants.
