you know her as erykah on and on badu, call tyrone on the phone, why you do that girl like that, boy? you ought to be ashamed

I'd always seen Erykah Badu around, never really heard her music, but always had respect for her. Prompted by an awesome Blender interview, I finally looked up her song "Call Tyrone" and I can't stop listening to it. I've been looking up pictures of her all day and I absolutely adore her style. It just suits her so well, so unique and funky.Also, anyone with a child named Seven by Andre 3000 gets my full respect.

Erykah Badu is flat out GORGEOUS!! She's really stunning, honestly I wish that people would pay her more attention than the very processed Beyonce...

Erykah Badu is freakin' awesome.
I forgot she had a kid with Andre 3000. Seven is such a cool name!

She is really cool - completely unashamed of her style and who she is, which just makes you want to copy everything she does (even though you'd look like an idiot). I'm trying to remember that song she did ages back that was quite popular but drawing a blank... off to wikipedia I guess!

Great lady, great style.

Wow. She's wearing a headdress. That's awesome. And "Palmdale" isn't the same as "Colt 45", but it is equally awesome. You would probably enjoy it.

I love Erykah Badu. I haven't listened to any of her new stuff, but I still have her old CD on my playlist.

The last sentence of this post made me laugh so much
Seven is a strange name, but then I have a friend called Tuesday! That's pretty strange!

Whoa! I knew Andre 3000 had a kid named Seven, but I didn't know she was his baby mama. That's awesome!
