"i don’t want to introduce too much of that right now. i don’t want Gwen Stefani stealing my shit."--Erykah Badu a.k.a. Lowdown Loretta Brown
There are a lot of chicks frontin out there who know better, but this is real, authentic, beautiful female insanity. I went to an Erykah Badu concert several years back, and it was easily one of the best concerts I have ever been attended. She is so authentic and off-the-chain, you have to love her. I hope you read her Essence article (she covered it a couple months back). The pictures were gorgeous and as always, she had some gems for the article. What was most impressive is how she's raising her children. She seems like an awesome--albeit strange and atypical--kind of mother. Wonderful example of a Black woman living authentically and unapologetically.
