Cold War - Janelle Monae
This is a cold war do you know what you’re fighting for?
Really feeling this song right now, given everything we’re talking about
In this official video of the song, where she simply sings in front of the camera in one take, Janelle Monae cries when she sings the lyrics, I was made to believe there was something wrong with me and it hurts my heart
When I listen to Janelle Monae and how she envisions revolution, I actually believe it can happen for all oppressed people one day. I find her music and everything she represents so inspiring.

You’ve got to check out our show this week, "Gender and the Syntax of Being." Krista’s interview with her explores this question through Joy’s story of transition from male to female — as a poet, as a parent, and as a the first openly transgender woman teaching in an Orthodox Jewish world.
