Band ‘Fun,’ with Janelle Monáe, perform “We are Young”

March 15, 2012

Just love this tune. Janelle Monáe is really cool, so cute. She actually had an interesting piece last weekend that aired here on Tucson’s NPR/American Public Media. It was ‘The Kitchen Sisters’ series, narrated by Tina Fey on “The Hidden World of Girls,” and Monáe’s was interesting. She’s a native of Kansas City, where I was born and where almost all of my Mom’s side of the family has been born and raised, and still lives. Anyway, Monáe’s story was moving, especially her sharing that her father was never really around because he was a drug-addict. She vowed to make something of her life, and look at her. I especially liked when she talked about what she was into as a youngster/teen, and still today; pompadours and Katherine Hepburn. Love that taste — classic, yet strong.
