Janelle Monáe Grabs Back with Pussy Pants in Her New Music Video

Think Pynk

We’ve seen a recent rise in pussy power on the streets, social media, and beyond. You can express your opinion and share your support via a viral hashtag (#MeToo and #TimesUp to name just two), or you can quite literally wear your heart and feelings on your sleeve thanks to a slew of designers such as Dior and Prabal Gurung. Now, thanks to Janelle Monáe, there’s a new sartorial statement you can make—and this one is going to be especially hard for Trump to grasp considering those slippery, cornichon-like fingers.

The ruffled vagina pants the star sports in “Pynk”—her latest track featuring Grimes from her forthcoming album, Dirty Computer (out April 27)—might just be the best version of the power suit we’ve seen thus far in 2018. The billowing, blush-colored legs (or labia, depending on how you like to describe this silhouette) provide ample room for comfortably running the world…and squeezing actress (and rumored lover) Tessa Thompson between your thighs. Monáe also makes a strong case for viewing this rather volatile world through a pair of rose-colored glasses.

If you’re still working your way up to wearing voluminous vulva trousers to your next pussy pow-wow at The Wing, ditch the knit cat ears and add some rosy pom-poms to your space buns instead. A swipe of fuchsia lipstick and a bold band of electric pink liner works, too. Or, ditch the Brazilian and embrace a full bush (as Monáe does in a pair of “Sex Cells” tighty whities). But no matter how you style above or below the belt, this girl-power anthem makes one thing clear: women wear the pants (vagina or otherwise).
