    The most underrated pop artist of our generation. She should be bigger than some of the people we elevate to massive fame, she’s genuinely talented at everything she does and is just unique while implementing elements of past greats such as Prince in all of her work.

    This was basically the only song on the new album that I wasn't really feeling... until watching this performance. Was definitely the right choice for this venue, show, and audience.

    This is my favorite song from the album! I was fortunate enough to see her live last weekend and she is absolutely AMAZING! I danced the whole time and sweated out my hair OKAY! She definately created a space where people from all walks of life could come and feel free to let go and be themselves. It was beautiful. If you haven't listened to Dirty Computer or seen the visual album I'd advise you to do so ASAP!!! You won't be disappointed. And the fact that she's dancing with Blanca from POSE

    Musically, she's chaneling the late Prince. The song is an ode to "Let's Go Crazy!" I wish an entire album of music in this 80s synth/rock-style would be made. Theatrically, she's definitely paying homage to Broadway musicals. Lyrically, it's loaded with commentary and awareness. I wish this version of the song would pick up as much traction as "This is America."

    Lame ass crowd. This woman deserves all the standing ovations, all the accolades, and all the awards. Can't wait for Thursday!
