Janelle Monáe's 'Heroes' Shows Why You Should Never Ever Pick On Nerds - VIDEO

Hero_a

You already knew that robosexual singer Janelle Monáe covered “closet heterosexual” David Bowie’s classic Heroes.

But what you didn’t know was that the video shows why you should never ever pick on nerds — especially ones with friends that read comic books and make cool costumes.

Watch the video AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. I actually really dig this. It's a new sound, a new spin and an utterly new take on what was one of Bowie's most moving anthems.

    well done, lass.

  3. Too bad it's such a terrible, mealy cover of an iconic song.

  6. While Jonaé continues to ride high in the spotlight -- and avoids any disclosure of her own sexuality -- she is undoubtedly taking moments to stand up for everyone who doesn't fit in. She's had some incredible things to say about the LGBT community.

    Of course, like everyone, I do hope she stops dating androids and finds her way to human beings, but she'll be ready when she's ready. In the meantime, this is more great music. Big fan here.

  7. This kind of thing fuels the bully movement. Back in the day people would scream out "Bowie!" at me, because of the facial structure, hair and silver jacket. "Rebel, rebel..." I love the fact that David is actually heterosexual. His music gives me shivers. I never got any paint over the head though. That started with the Jets vs. Sharks in "West Side Story{" didn't it? " That was way before "packaged" bullying.

  8. Why is this lesbian still in the closet?

    And what the f*** is 'robosexual'?
