Erykah Badu er for så vidt postet tidligere. Men hastverk er lastverk og noen utbedringer bør gjøres. Det er tre poeng som må fremmes per i dag.

  1. Låta ‘Honey’ må opp på veggen. Den handler om å ha kvitredilla, mens den fuglen man vil fange til stadighet flyr i vei. Teksten er søt og kul, videoen er rett og slett kongelig.
  2. Erykah skal bli mamma – for tredje gang. Dette har skapt fuorore. Årsaken til oppstandelsen og Erykahs krasse svar til massene må katalogiseres her i kvinnekongedømmet. Erykahs svar på tiltale begynner slik: ‘Hvordan våger dere å disse min queendom?’
  3. En liten snutt hvor Erykah kommenterer kvinnelige artisters albuerom i musikkindustrien. Denne kommentaren må ikke tolkes som en diss til kvinnelige artister, men som en diss til plateindustriens ensporede oppskrift på suksess.
  4. Oppsummering. Denne kommer også i form av en video, men den plasserer Erykah i en helt annen liga, langt oppe på stjernehimmelen.

1. Honey

Fantastisk, ikke sant?

So tell me Slim, what its gonna be
it dont be like this usually
when it come to that , «what it do..» (slang for skjer’a?)
i dont fall for that «woop- tee -woo » (bullshit)
ooh boy can you tell me please
wanna know if ya feelin’ me
ooh Slim boy ya killin’ me ,
but you soo sweet ta me

Videoen plasserer flere ikoniske plateomslag moderert til Badus fantastiske person. Jeg liker henne i The Beatlesomslaget best. Nei, som Chaka Khan. Uansett sitter jeg igjen med et økende sug etter støvete og ståkete platemesser. Her er omslagene i kronologisk rekkefølge. Jeg har 6 av 13: Rufus, Eric B & Rakim, Ohio Players, De La Soul, Nas Earth, Wind & Fire.

Rufus – Rufus Featuring Chaka Khan
Diana Ross – Blue (as Imma Boss – Bee)
Funkadelic – Maggot Brain (as Control Freaq – Fertilizer)
Eric B. & Rakim – Paid in Full (as Erykah B. & Shafiq – Played as Hell)
Ohio Players – Honey (as Okayplayer)
Minnie Riperton – Perfect Angel (as Making Money – Pray for Me)
Labelle – Chameleon (as Sugah Sugah – Gipson)
De La Soul – 3 Feet High and Rising (as Taco Loco – Three 4 a Dollar)
The Beatles – Let It Be (as What It Do)
Nas – Illmatic (as Liah – All Ready)
Olivia Newton-John – Physical (as Olord – Please)
Grace Jones – Nightclubbing (as Loretta Brown – Churchgoing)
Earth, Wind & Fire – Head to the Sky (as Erykah Badu – Hell to the Naw’l)

2. Babymama Badu

I 1997 fikk Erykah Badu sin førstefødte sønn, Seven Sirius Benjamin (10), med Outkastrapperen André 3000. Ikke lenge etter at dette forholdet tok slutt dundret låta ‘Ms. Jackson’ på de fleste bilstereoer i store deler av den kjente verden. I denne låta ber André 3000 moren til Badu om forlatelse for at ikke alt gikk med forholdet som først følt. André forklarer at det aldri var hans intensjon å få Ms Jacksons datter til å ta til tårene. Han sender en trillion unnskyldninger til sin babys mamas mama. Erykah har i et intervju kommentert at denne låta bare beviser hvilken storslagen mann André er.

Syv år senere fikk Erykah datteren Puma Rose (4) med The DOC, en sentral figur i den legendariske rapgruppen N.W.A. Erykah har måttet forklare dette fenomenet.

«Me and Doc fell in love,» she says, recounting their brief romance in 2003. «And, hey, we played the grown-folks game. He was not the one, but Puma came on through.» mer her.

Nå har Erykah Badu kvitredilla igjen. Verdens lykkeligste mann er nok en høyt aktet MC som går under navnet Jay Electronica og han er fra New Orleans. Da hennes tredje utenomekteskapelige graviditet ble kjent, ble det oppstandelse blant fans og bloggere. Det ble ikke spart på kritiske kommentarer. Heldigvis sparte ikke selveste Erykah Badu på ammunisjonen da hun fyrte løs tilbake og kneblet de konservative prinsipprytterne:

HOW DARE YOU DISRESPECT THE QUEENDOM…AND MY CHILDREN AND MY INTELLIGENCE. ive never been so disgusted in all of my life. there is no other place i used to enjoy more. i post no where else. you guys have taken an all time low, tho. I’LL STATE MY PEACE i am a great mother and care giver to my 2 children and to this world. my children are 2 of the kindest and happiest people i have met. I home schooled them and taught them the ways of good to the best of my ability. i am their doctor and their nurse. and even sometimes their mother and their father. i am an excellent mother and resent all of the negative comments and insults on my character. I PUT MUCH TIME AND THOUGHT INTO HAVING AND RAISING MY CHILDREN.IVE HAD THE HONORS OF HAVING 2 HOME BIRTHS AND 2 WONDERFUL PARTNERS BY MY SIDE. every relationship i have been in was because i loved the person DEARLY and was dedicated to us «exclusively» FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS. the fathers of my children are my brothers and friends. we have a great deal of respect for one another and always will. WE LOVE OUR CHILDREN TO NO END. we took our own «vows» and CONTINUE TO UPHOLD THEM. AND THAT IS WHAT THAT IS. question? WHAT IS MARRIAGE? WHO IS THE JUDGE? WE ONLY UNDERSTAND THE EXAMPLES WE ARE GIVEN ( well sort of) WOULD IT «LOOK BETTER » TO MARRY AND DIVIORCE AND MARRY AGAIN? WOULD THAT BE MORALLY CORRECT? WHATS THE DIFFERENCE? the government’s involvement i guess. IDEALLY, IT WOULD BE EXCELLENT TO FIND THE MAN OR WOMAN WHO FULFILLS YOUR SPIRIT AND STAY FOR EVER AND EVER ( thru sickness and health till death do us part ) AND HAVE HEALTHY STRONG CHILDREN AS A RESULT OF A HEALTHY AND STRONG UNION. (this CAN happen … we need much training, however.) OR IS IT REALLY «GOOD» TO STAY IN A RELATIONSHIP WHERE BOTH PARTIES ARE UNFULFILLED, LONGING FOR RELIEF, BRINGING one another down as a result of improper training, creating BAD ENERGY AND EXPERIENCES FOR THE CHILD TO REPEAT ? (not to mention breeding deceit and anger and resentment ) SEEMS TO CREATE FEARFUL CHILDREN WHO TURN INTO FEARFUL ADULTS. HOW MANY OF YOU GREW UP IN 2 PARENT HOMES THAT WERE MISERABLE AS *&%^$#@E ?OR 2 PARENT HOMES THAT WERE NOT PERFECT BUT WORKED? HOW MANY GREW UP IN ONE PARENT HOMES WHERE THE MOTHER WORKED HARD TO MAKE SURE YOU WERE CARED FOR BUT SHE WASNT QUITE HAPPY? HOW ABOUT A HOME WHERE THE FATHER WAS THE MAIN CARE GIVER AND DID THE BEST HE COULD -LACKING NURTURE? HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE A SIBLING THAT HAS A DIFFERENT FATHER OR MOTHER? DOES HE OR SHE MEAN LESS TO YOU? HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE MORE THAN 1 MOTHER OR FATHER OF YOUR OWN CHILDren? HOW MANY OF YOU HAD /OR / ARE PARENTS RESPONSIBLE ENOUGH TO MAKE GOOD DECISIONS FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR CHILDREN, THAT DONT QUITE FIT ANY OF THESE DESCRIPTIONS? HOW MANY OF YOU STAY IN UNHEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS FOR FEAR OF GOING TO HELL? HOW MANY HOS OUT THERE … THAT HAVE KIDS TO GET A PAYDAY? HOW MANY PEOPLE GETTING THEY ASS KICKED AND ARE FORCED TO SUBMIT CAUSE YO MAMA GOT HER ASS KICKED? THEN WHAT is CORRECT? how about this:I PRAY WITH MY CHILDREN I FEED THEM GOOD FOODTHEY RESPECT PEOPLES DIFFERENCES THEY TRAVEL THE WORLD WITH METHE KNOW WHO THEY ARE THEY ADORE THEIR FATHERS AND ARE LOVED BY 2 PARENTS OR MORE -OR TWO OR MORE SETS OF LOVING GRANDPARENTSTHEY CRY THEY GET HURT THEY GET SICK THEY HEALTHEY ARE realTHEY ARE NOT AN IDEA or a TOPICAND NEITHER AM I. I AM ALIVE. I AM BEAUTIFUL WOMAN. I AM A GOOD WOMAM. I AM GROWING I AM COMPLETE WITH OR WITHOUT A PARTNER AND WILL ALWAYS BE AND I HAVE DREAMS OF A FAMILY STRUCTURE ALL OF MY DREAMS DO NOT COME TRUE AND DESPITE ALL OF THE PAIN IN MY LIFE …IN MY MOTHERS LIFE …IN MY GRANDMOTHERS LIFE WE HAVE ALWAYS ENDURED AND THERE IS SO MUCH JOY TO BE EXPERIENCED. I NEVER HAD A FATHER AND I DONT KNOW WHAT THAT FEELS LIKE -BUT MY CHILDREN DO, AND THEY LOVE THEIR ‘PARENTS’ . WE ARE THEIR CHAMPIONS. live how you want. follow which ever pattern YOU like. MY CHILDREN WILL BE LEADERS and they will not ever be slaves to this society’s failing idea of morality. THEY OWN THEIR MINDS AND THEIR DREAMS. BIRTH CONTROL lol … could have 10 babies instead of 2 . I LOVE CHILDREN AND I WILL HAVE AS MANY AS GOD WILL GIVE ME . I AM VERY HEALTHY AND RESPONSIBLE AND SO ARE ALL OF MY PARTNERS I CHOSE THEM WISELY AND SOBERLY. ALL GOOD BROTHERS. your opinions lack experience and are not only careless but also very uninformed and immature. nothing is sacred here. and i see why. if i loose you as a fan because i want to continue to have children then *&%^$#@E OFF… WHO NEEDS YOU ….CERTAINLY NOT ME … KICK ROCKS … CALL TYRONE … PACK LIGHT …. BITE ME i have defended myself here ON THIS SITE and hurled a few insults .. but only in response to your insults of my music , my clothes , my lyrics , my hair , my being a woman , my spirit, my choices of partners….these have all been on trial here. and i continued to support the energy of this place.this is to all the okay players / REAL HUMAN BEINGS hiding behind screen names in order to insult one another and who ever else you will. geeeez…i had to say something i am so sad for parents who try, today guys enough is enuf. dont judge to quickly , OKAY PLAYER? i know you are having fun, but what if it were you and your children? my son is 10. my daughter, 4 . peace ANALOGUE GIRL and if this post is not clear kiss my placenta.

Har du lest alt sammen nøytidig? Erykah vet hva hun snakker om og hvor skapet skal stå. Ikke noe tvil om det. Det kuleste av alt er at jeg kan relatere til hvert eneste ord, lol. he, he.

3. Badu på hva som skal til for at musikkindustrien skal åpne sine dører for deg, kvinne.

4. Oppsummering
