Video of the Day: Janelle Monae Dances on a Tightrope

Clever songstress and style icon Janelle Monae has plenty of fans in San Francisco. But we're not sure if the local masses have been able to catch the pompadoured queen's fancy footwork. In this new video for “Tightrope,” the singer vents about walking the line between too much fame and falling under the radar with a team of dancers performing some inspired moves along the halls of an old school-cum-asylum. Backed by her “classy brass,” Monae walks on air to a pop funk beat that's instantly infectious.
