Janelle Monae Talks Cold War Video

Android singer Janelle Monae recently unveiled the music video for “Cold War,” the follow up single to “Tightrope,” off her debut album “The ArchAndroid”. Directed by Wendy Morgan, the video gets real intimate, as it puts the focus on her close-up performance. “‘Cold War’ reveals what ‘The ArchAndroid’ looks like,” Monae recently told Rap-Up. “[The video] deals with a psychosis – you’re in my mind and you get a chance to understand Metropolis, where it all stemmed [from] and my thoughts. It’s very psychedelic and trippy.” Get Janelle Monae Beauty Tips Monae shot the video for “Cold War,” the same time she shot the clip to her MTV Video Music Award nominated “Tightrope.” She said, “I shot them in two days. I did ‘Tightrope’ first and ‘Cold War’ the next day.” “Both of them are very touching. I remember crying during ‘Cold War’ [on the] first take. I didn’t know how that happened but it just did. I was very moved by that. It was really a special moment; then everybody else started to cry.”
