Janelle Monáe Does It Again
It feels like it was just yesterday we were gushing about Janelle Monáe's amazingly quirky single, “Q.U.E.E.N." (I mean, it was only two months ago—dang, girl!) But now, here we are yet again obsessed with another one of her just-released videos, "Dance Apocalyptic."
In a departure from her signature look, Monáe literally lets down her hair in this bizarre "American Bandstand" meets the end-of-the-world video. It's totally insane—and I love it. The choreography's as catchy as the lyrics, and I wouldn't be surprised to see people busting out the moves at a party.
Take a look:

We've said it before and we'll say it again: New York City Ballet principal Sara Mearns is some SERIOUS #goals. Her strength and power onstage borders on superhuman. But what's extra magical about Mearns is that she really puts in the fitness and cross-training work outside of the rehearsal studio. And she's overcome her fair share of injuries. Which is why she was the perfect source for Vogue's latest ballet fitness story.
Well, this brings class videos to a whole new level! Choreographer Phil Wright and dancer Ashley Liai have been together eight-plus years, but she was still in total shock when he proposed to her mid-dance at Millennium Dance Complex earlier this week. Why? Well, the whole thing was unbelievably perfect.
In the dance industry, dancers don't always have a say in what they wear on their bodies. This can get tricky if you're asked to wear something that compromises your own personal values. So what should you do if you find yourself in this sticky situation? We sat down for a Q&A with "Dancing with the Stars" alumn Ashly Costa to answer that very question. Here's what she had to say about the options dancers have surrounding questionable costumes.
