Janelle Monae

If you’re watching the Brit Awards tonight and find yourself thinking “where the fuck is Janelle Monae?” then you’re not alone. The punchy little soulstress, who’s been taken under the wing of such funk greats as Stevie Wonder, Nile Rodgers and, uh..Outkast’s Big Boi, is as pretty as she is talented. Unfortunately none of her singles get much radio play on mainstream stations in the UK and so it seems Norah Jones and Ladyhawke are enough to oust her from the Best Internation Female shortlist. Yeah, I know that no-one but Gaga’s got a chance in hell of winning the award, but it would be nice to see Janelle get some recognition.

I was lucky enough to see her surprise set at Bestival 2010. Unfortunately, the tent was full of people wondering who the fuck she was, and one of my friends was tripping on mushrooms so hard that all she could say was “I love this so much. I’m jizzing over it, but it’s boring” and stormed out of the tent in the middle of Tightrope.

The best things about her hair are:

1. It’s big and small at the same time

2. It works beautifully with her delicate-featured face

3. It pays no attention to gravity.

Natalie Portman, 2005.

I finally saw Darren Aronofsky’s multi-award winning, Oscar nominated Black Swan. It’s beautiful and heartbreaking, if you can get past other audience members’ guffaws. The lesbian sex scene (I’m not giving anything away, am I?) is as hot as everyone says it is, but it has more than an undercurrent of nasty to it. And not good nasty.

Although neither Natalie Portman nor Mila Kunis have been in a lesbian sex scene before, Mila played young Gia Carangi, in 1998’s HBO seriesĀ Gia. (The older version of the heroin-addled lesbian supermodel was played by Angelina Jolie, and she got a Golden Globe for it. If you fancy girls, and haven’t watched it already, smack yourself in the head right now. Actually, even if you’re not a lesbian or a ‘red-blooded’ male, smack yourself in the head. Then watch it. Ange is so fit she can manipulate even your deepest natural pyschological inclinations)

And, uh, Natalie has never really played lesbian before, BUT OMGZ look at HUR HAARZ in V for Vendetta!
