A bitter sweet release on the Venus Fly music video being released tomorrow (Feb2). The most anticipated video by voguing wannabe’s like myself or any other grimes fan will have to pay to watch the streaming video on TIDAL. So if you don’t have a membership you are screwed until someone leaks it on Youtube.
As you all know I LIVE for anything grimes, and I hate to not be ok with this. She has been announcing this video for the longest time and it’s finally here and I won’t get to see it until god knows when. However, I will continue to support her decisions despite the fact that I refuse to pay a TIDAL subscription. Sorry queen I am a very poor peasant.
Despite the small controversy your fans still very much love you, but we just cannot afford it. Grimes shares the reason why she chose to release the video through this medium.
“Sometimes it feels futile to be making art in this cruel and extreme political climate,” Grimes shared on twitter. “But some of the brightest moments of the last few months for me and for a lot of you, I suspect, have come from seeing Janelle Monae’s amazing and positive vision of the future, especially when we are being introduced to so many possible dystopian futures. Thanks for giving so much time, energy and creativity to this project.”
I hope the video slays as much as the teasing clip! I know this video will be badass since it was directed by grimes herself.
