{Movie Review} Rio 2 featuring Janelle Monae Friday 11 April, 2014


Another movie review and this time it was an interactive Red Carpet for the biggest of kids for the movie Rio 2.  Although I do not have children myself I enjoyed this festive movie screening celebration of  eclectic singer, Janelle Monae’s animation debut of her song. Janelle Monae’s song “What is Love” from Atlantic Record’s RIO 2 soundtrack, is also the opening track for the entire movie, which really set the Caribbean mood with her vocals.


She is too adorable and in Monae “andriod” fashion she wears all black rocking Alejandra G multidimensonal Black & White stilettos. Too hawt!
