Janelle and Monica at Outkast Reunion concert

Natural beauties Monica Brown, right, and Janelle Monáe posed together at Outkast’s Georgia Reunion concert at CounterPoint Music Festival in Rome, GA over the weekend. For some reason the group chose to perform in Rome (of all places) rather than in their hometown of Atlanta. But that didn’t stop hardcore fans from making the trip to Kingston Downs in the driving rain to watch their favorite group belt out their hits.

From Access Atlanta:

It took until 11:35 p.m. Sunday night for it to finally happen, but when Antwan “Big Boi” Patton and André “3000” Benjamin stepped onto the stage at CounterPoint Music Festival, all of the recent aggravations – the two-hour rain delay from earlier in the evening, the molasses-paced crawl of traffic into the parking area at Kingston Downs, the technical snafus that delayed the duo’s start time another 30 minutes – dissipated with the frenetic blast of “B.O.B.”

There, under a feverish swirl of spotlights and in front of a silhouette of an American flag, Big Boi and Andre 3000 took but a few seconds to slip into a groove that belied their near-decade apart.

True, Outkast had two dates at Coachella earlier this month to prepare for their homecoming (and yes, we know that Rome isn’t their hometown, but it’s as close to Atlanta as they’re coming right now). But this show would be special – and it was, if only symbolically.

Always telling you to look at your neighbor and tell him this look at your neighbor and tell him that if you love the Lord you ought to be on your feet. I was just defiant yesterday after how they did me I wasnt saying jack. Just sitting there like yo’ ol gay self. I said self instead of azz. I was in the house of the Lord. My Momma tried to raise me right.

    *fights MsT’s air* I cannot stand you! I could totally see the scene you just described. My aunt’s best friend runs and dances in the aisle just like you described. We don’t even stop her now :no: I was sitting at the end of the pew once, and she hopped across me into the aisle and she didn’t touch me AT ALL- not even the hem of her dress :eek: Some folks put on, but she really gets touched by the spirit :woohoo:

    Girl the choir director/minister of music/praise & worship leader is really who runs the church now. :tea: Now you still got some pastors who will tell you it aint all about bodily exercise and that you gonna need some Word to sustain you, but it’s plenty churches where folks just show up to sing/dance/socialize. :tea:
