Read Elle Magazine's interview with Wendy Morgan in their iconic music video feature:
She’s been in the music biz for several years, but it was 2010’s Tightrope that propelled Janelle Monáe toward commercial success. Showcasing her signature pompadour-and-tuxedo combo, Tightrope takes place at a futuristic mental institution where dancing is forbidden. “Janelle breaks the rules and creates the Tightrope dance, which allows her to travel through time and space,” says director Wendy Morgan. “Unfortunately when she escapes, the mirror-faced attendants—who are inspired by Sun Ra’s 1974 film, Space Is the Place—are not far behind and bring her back.”
Morgan says the infectious choreography was the brainchild of Monáe and the Memphis Jookin’ Society, dancers who played her fellow inpatients in the video. “Dance greats like James Brown served as references,” says Morgan.
Wendy Morgan's video for Janelle Monáe, "Tightrope", has been named The Top Music Video of 2010 by NME:
Directed by Wendy Morgan, this video takes place at the Palace of the Dogs, a sanitorium where the likes of Charlie Parker and Jimi Hendrix were once admitted.
Best bit? It inspired a whole new dance craze - probably the best one since Soulja Boy...which is a welcomed change.
