Early on Friday, when the clock struck midnight, one artist in particular honored the world with a new inspirational album and film. Minutes after both projects were launched, Twitter was illuminated with memes and tweets praising the new album by Janelle Monae Dirty Computer that celebrates homosexuality, self-esteem and the empowerment of women. And it's not just about embracing homosexuality when it comes to sexuality. Monae wants you to also accept things about yourself that can make others feel uncomfortable. And as it seems, people are already being inspired.
He explained the title of the album Dirty Computer in an interview with iHeartRadio:
We come from dirt and when we make the transition we go back to dirt. […] We are CPU, our brains are loading, downloading, transmitting, transmitting information. And with all the computers you have your mistakes, you have your viruses. But are these negative aspects, positive, characteristic? Or not? I think it's a conversation I want to have with us as a society, as human beings, about what it means to tell someone that their existence, be strangers, minorities, women, poor, makes you have errors and viruses. […] it's about embracing those things even if they make others uncomfortable.
The artist continued in the interview to describe how writing and recording or Dirty Computer was like therapy when he questioned what it meant to be a young, black woman living in America.
His third album release arrives the same week. Monae also presented an "emotional image" of 45 minutes for the album, a list of upcoming dates for the tour, and her appearance as a pansexual in Rolling Stone . It seems that Monae is on a roll and this is what the fans are tweeting so far:
F is for feminist
As the writer Derrick Clifton wrote to them.: "Now, the Electric Lady is directing a clarion call towards a The black, feminist and queer inclusive future: one that will not crash or burn. "
Pussy Grabs Back
" This pussy is caught again "was a call for the Women's March and made an act of presence in Dirty Computer .
The fans were amazed – the kind of astonishment – with Monae's latest masterpiece.
Black Girl Magic
Black Twitter was brought to life by Monae's stunning new visual album that celebrates the ferocity of individuality, even in the face of adversity.
You Are Seen
Monae's message is clear: all human existence has a place.
The beauty of "mistakes"
Even "failures" "In your life you are an important part of making yourself who you are.
Free and free
Many people that I am also on Twitter to comment on the short film by Monae, which aired on BET and stars the musician alongside actress Tessa Thompson.The film is set in a totalitarian future where people are known as "computers."
A user of Twitter talked about how meaningful this album was for him.
A little cop love
Monae did not shy away from unconventional relationships, like polyamory, in Dirty Computer .
If you stay awake at night to listen Dirty Computer in its entirety, you are not the only one.
Although wrapped in a technological theme, it is the message emotional and very human what leaves people feeling raw.
A dirty computer does not mean a broken computer.
All The Feels
Monae's album Dirty Computer gave her fans lots to cheer about. As Monae said in her interview with iHeartRadio, love is at the root of her album.
… I'm guiding with love. I faced a lot of anger, the sting of what it feels like to trample on your rights as a woman, as a minority. Someone tells you that your existence is wrong and you have to be more submissive and try to take your agency.
But Dirty Computer wants to create a trial-free zone, as shown in his short film. If you missed his "emotion movie," you can still watch his singles music videos off the album, including the latest "I like that" addition.
