The 8 Most Important GIFs From Janelle Monáe’s ‘Pynk’ Video

When Janelle Monáe said “Let the vagina have a monologue” in “Django Jane,” we perhaps should have known to brace ourselves for an immaculately art-directed ode to all things even vagina-adjacent — up to and including Tessa Thompson popping her head out between Monáe’s stylish labial legs — which is exactly what she’s delivered in with “Pynk.” Below are the eight most important GIFs from Monáe’s latest, a video so celebratory of female sexuality and sex organs and sexual thoughts and sexual fluidity that it makes the bisexual lighting and ass slapping of “Make Me Feel” seem extremely subtle by comparison. Now behold the glory of “Pynk” in seconds-long loops you can share with friends.

Guys, if you ever wonder what women get up to when you’re not around, this is it. Exactly this. We perform elaborate, erotic bonding rituals while serving extreme face.
