...'''FEMM''' is also a [[JapanesePopMusic Japanese pop]] duo that surfaced in 2014. If you haven't already guessed, they are heavy on the "concept" aspect; they may be more accurately described as an ambitious art project than a music act, employing world-class talent from several mediums. [=FEMM=] is backed by the producers of such big name stars as Beyonce and Music/LadyGaga, resulting in music that is probably more familiar to American ears than Japanese ones (their lyrics are also entirely in English). Also of note are their music videos, which have been released at a steady pace since the beginning of 2014, each one different from the last but all of them undeniably impressive. Finally, intricate and robotic choreography is provided by HIDALI, the choreographer behind Genki Sudo's equally novelty group WORLD ORDER. The mannequins also remain in character at all times.

* PrecisionFStrike: Although "Fxxk Boyz Get Money" uses the F-word quite often, it is "bleeped" out, which makes the acutal usage of it after the bridge quite effective.

!! FEMM provides examples of:
* BadassBoast: "Fxxk Boyz Get Money", "Kill the DJ", "White Noise"...most of their songs, really.
* ClusterFBomb: "Fxxk Boyz Get Money". It may make up around half the song's lyrics.
* MixedAncestry: Emily Kaiho, who portrays [=RiRi/Honey-B=], has a Japanese father and a Caucasian-American mother.
* NaughtyNurseOutfit: Both mannequins in "Party All Night".
* RedOniBlueOni: According to [[http://aramajapan.com/featured/arama-japan-interviews-mannequin-duo-femm/5144/ this]] interview, [=RiRi=] is an aggressive combat oriented mannequin while [=LuLa=] is more reserved and supportive.
* SurprisinglyGoodEnglish: All of their songs are entirely in English with perfect grammar and—with a few exceptions—pronunciation immediately understandable to native speakers.
