"HEADLINES!!!!!! BADU PREGNANT WITH WATERHEAD BABY FROM PHILLY"


  

          

PEACE AND LIGHT
Its always funny to hear some news about yourself thats new, even to YOU...
once i heard i beat up DAVID DECOVINEY'S wife on the set of a movie.
at least they said i WON the fight....i supposedly went to jail and the whole 9.
and not to mention WENDY'S entertainment....sad...but its a living....
HERE THIS: believe none of the neg. shit you hear and only 1/2 the good....
before i could get out the 2nd chorus of ON AND ON i was deemed the candle and incense queen...and the miss cleo of the soul music world.... hay,it worked for a while so i went wit it, ya dig?
i find sometimes difficult to grow before the eyes of a media led world.
we tend to forget whats important and find comfort in dwelling on the failings of others....
its all fair though.
i wonder how any of you would feel or behave in a sittuation like the ones we as artists who are celebrated are faced with?
just a question.
you know what? i envy you sometimes. you artist who can dip into a spot , spit yo ur shit, then dip out...
but say....i dont take this gift for granted.
and it IS a gift. give thanks.
so imma hold it down for ya'll.

i use to love H.E.R.
that headwrapped, strapped chick holdin' ...heavy magic clips packed with ankhs,...
bangles, big rangs, long dresses and angel wings,... droppin dirty mouth flows and ashes on yo flo.....leavin ' inscent burn marks on the brains of the masses...critical...
all T R A I N I N G W H E E L S, brothers and sisters....
i now stand naked and unashamed .
and o yes by the way...my ass IS fat PHILLYMAN...
and ahhh....almost forgot

yo QUEST , got news for ya, the movement aint ova- OKAY PLAYER?

>yo QUEST , got news for ya, the movement aint ova- OKAY
>PLAYER?

We've moved into stage two. The NEXT movement has begun. It shifts shapes like seaweed dancing in an underwater current. In fact, it's not stage two. It's stage infinite. To think the movement began or could end with us is on some 50-cent ego ish. If the movement is over to you, then you ain't keeping up. Humble yourselves enough to channel that power thru you. And look out for the undercurrent.

Cuz if the movement is over then we're all standing still.

Peace, Thanks Erykah.

>just a question.

I could take some of it. And handle it well. Like I could trade places with someone like Anthony Hamilton... and I think I could handle that level of "fame."

But I mean, for someone like you, who takes so many unneccesary shots from media types and the rumor mill because you aren't doing what "THEY" feel you should be.... because you won't force yourself to fit their mold... I don't know how I would handle something like that. I'm sure you can only take it so long before it begins to get to you and you get fed up. I don't really know.

>you know what? i envy you sometimes. you artist who can dip
>into a spot , spit yo ur shit, then dip out...

It's nice. But really, I wish *someone* would come up to me and want to talk to me about my music.... why I chose the couplets that I did... what this phrase or that phrase means...

Maybe a nice inbetween where my peers respected me and at times wanted to know a little more beyond what I gave them in my song... but I could still walk out on a dance floor and not worry about having to explain why my next album has been pushed back so many times.

That's the rub though. Wanting the praise and admiration and support, but wanting to be able to turn it off when I'd like. Ain't never gonna happen.

im known in my community as...the deep chic that wears werd jewelry and wont get a perm, the one that dresses funny that's always bumpin badu are that kweli dude's music in the car..i think the little kids in the hood think im a witch or something, and the grown ass folks try to find something about me to hate. they say 'she aint no christian woman' when what they really wonder is how i get this glow when i dont go to church. according to them, i been pregnant a hundred times and not only do i smoke blunts like most peeps drink water, i been sniffin that white girl too. there have been so many rumors about me floating around and i aint even a celebrity.

im a 5%er so im a racist. im a mother so im promiscuous,im a writer so i am crazy.
the list goes on.

i say, take it as a compliment that folks that dont know you can think about you so much as to speculate and come up with their own senarios.

peace

I'm the weirdo almost everywhere I go, especially on my block. Is he black? Is he one o'dem ay-rabs? Is he mixed? He don't DRESS black...I think he listens to punk rock...but I see him wit niggas all the time. No, his girlfriend is asian. No, I think he's gay. what the fuck?

ImfeelinbettathaneveryouyouGETDOWN.....

tell you what...I'm all of the above, none of the above, and something in between. take me as you see me, even with false assumptions because I'm not in a position, nor do I care, to change any of them. I'm doing my own thing, and if cats are talking about it, that means I'm different, which is FINE with me, dig?

E...don't worry about it. Cats are gonna talk no matter what. All you can do is laugh when they're wrong, else you'll cry when they're right. Check the Chekhov quote in the sig.

Plus I got niggas in DC

when what they really wonder is how i get this glow when i dont go to church.

Oh my word! Oh my word. My sister and I discuss this all the time. I read your post and I said, "ME, too!"

Well, I'm 29 and my face makes me look 15 and I have a son and people talk and they make you feel like a celebrity.

Ha, the way people talk. They ask why I read so much, why I am so quiet, what's up with me writing all the time, what's up with me not wearing makeup, what's up with me being so little, what's up with me being so shy. They have so many questions and I have none for them except, "Why are you so blame nosy.?"

Oh, I was "feeling" your post! I had to tell my sister about it.

Dream like a child!

im 31, i have two sons, 12 and 14, they both taller and bigger than i am. and yeah, im still lookin like a teen ager so peeps be like..omg, you had your children when you were 10?

i hang out in open mic dives instead of clubbin. i've been seen at parties tucked away in a corner in a writing frenzy. i dont wear make up, i dont dress like most women..i dont give a rats ass and i am free...i guess some folks got a problem with freedom..maybe because they are locked in their own prisons? i dont know. but im a real black girl and i love it. and i love women that love it. i say be free and to hell with disapproval.

i know im not alone..and im glad to see a-alikes posting on here.

Press most of the time is lying
people who loves you (like me!) knows that.
So I don't give attention on gossip
but just I listen to the music
and see the shows.
Respect and admiration for you freedom!

support your local band-sleep with a musician

nah, but all jokes aside....it's hard to say how i would deal with it. i mean, i have my own drama here at the grind mon-fri and people always tend to talk shit that aint about shit. so i just move through my days not thinking or being concerned over that crap. i kinda let it orbit around my world like satellites waiting to crash and burn through my worlds atmosphere like junk from outer space.

honestly...you are the only artist i've ever known to handle gossip in a unique and intelligent manner. the wendy scenerio was truly CLASSIC. and from my interpretation of that one fateful evening, not only did you put wendy on blast, you put her whole audience on blast, in effect... proving how naive and weak they are to believe everything they see and (in wendy's show's instance) hear.

i truly aspire to attain your tolerance and technique of shuffling through the bullshit that tries to attach itself onto you. just keep doing what you do and you will be just fine.

only open-minded and open-hearted people will understand the real deal and won't settle for less when it comes to the media jack-offs and rumor mill masturbators trying to anticipate your next headline expose'.

so, in a nut shell....fuck 'em.

but, seriously...i think she merely exists to amuse and be laughed at, and nothing more.

the sad thing about that is, she prolly subscribes to it on a personal level, rather than just a professional one.

I really thought that my best friend and I were the only people who believed very heavily that Ms. Williams looks MAD TRANNY! And kinda like a turtle as a side side note, considering this post has nothing to do with the lovely Ms. Badu or her virtue. Its just that Wendy is way to freakin opinionated and quick to provide unfounded "information" to the slop-brined masses, and does this so readily, it would make you think that she too is believing her own hype.

~They killed my sig!~

In response to Reply # 0


          

Critics have been trying to keep people in boxes since the beginning of popular music.

I'm reading Miles Davis' autobiography, and he despises critics for doing this. If he stayed in his neat, little box, the world would have never gotten Bitches Brew.

One thing that he says in the book if an artist is changing genres, one must take their time in developing a new style. Become that new artist. Don't just hop in and hop out much like the fans/musicians you envy.

Where'd this soapbox come from?

Me being one of your more critical appreciators I'm diggin the verbs. It's not easy to morph before the eyes of most, not just the public. Ere one gots something to say and an opinion of your direction and path regardless of who you are.
To keep it real those you speak of...
"i envy you sometimes. you artist who can dip into a spot , spit yo ur shit, then dip out..."
As I see and experience it, probably just figured it was the best way to express the creative mental residue and dodge the tainting of haters by maintaining some form of exclusion from the drama inside and out that the creative grind can brew up. It's type easy to flow and blow, thats if your main mission does not include residuals...nahmean. But everything cost, allbeit $$$ or effects or obscurity...whats your price and how fat are your pockets becomes the question.

So I'll sit back and appreciate that just maybe the sis with the wraps, inscense, bangles and country sultry southern song ain't really went anywhere. She just melted in a bigger pot stewing into bigger thangs.

As for the folks that talk smack.
hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil and don't waste the time or energy

Thanks for the post analoguegrrrl!

E Badu,
Its not cool that people lash out when they are jealous, envious, and full of fear, laziness and self resentment. Then they see someone who is an easy target, for instance, a celeb and bam, they take their shots. But whatever woman, you know God makes all crooked places straight...stay on your path, your music is a gift. Keep God first!

Erykah..

keep the posts coming!!!!!!! (gives me something interesting to read at work) i am sure the scrutiny is challenging and i dont envy you at all in that manner.. i really enjoy the anonymity of being a nerdy libarian!!

for real though.. nice to have you on the boards..

im mad curious about what you are up to musically.. where you see yourself headed (musically), if there are any plans to release another live album?

maybe you could do a Q&A like Jill did on the boards? OKP's can submit questions and then you answer some and they post the responses.. as much as you dont like being misrepresented and all it might give you a chance to really speak for yourself.

i really appreciate your work, your mind and your honesty!! i've been able to catch two of your shows over the years and its the real thing..

peace

I personally could not be a celeb. It would drive me crazy, I wouldn't mind the freedom of not having a 9-5 and the loot, i guess. Bit it takes a certain type of person to tolerate everything involved. It's seems u try to stay grounded and that's cool cuz it makes folks aware that u a person just like they are. But what people like you do with words, IS amazing, and folks be so excited that sometimes they just can't contain themselves.

That is hot. I am not mad at you for expressing yourself in the way that you do. Who could be? Hater's right? Well, all I can say is keep doing your thing the way that you do. You are going to have that negative energy channeled towards you anyway. It is all about how you handle it, ya' dig? I don't even care about the rumors. I care about is the music and the feeling that you give when I put that CD in or when I go to your shows. There are people who are out there that feel the same way that I do. We all get lost in the sauce sometimes when the media stamp something on your forehead just to give us a prospective of how we identify who you are. When it all boils down to, you're human just like all of us. Keep doing your thing Badu because I miss that feel music. You are one of the soldiers that brought it back.

Stay Peaceful....

with all the drama surrounding the likes of Paris Hilton's set these days i wonder, when one signs up for all the positives that come with being "celebrated" is it an unspoken thing to not recognize that the smallest negative or odd thing about you will become bathroom, water cooler, internet & magazine fodder?

are artists not coached or prepared for the onslaught that comes with becoming a public figure?

a lesson i learned recently is that whenever you put yourself out there to be praised & accept that praise - be it your work, your look, your art, you - you're also opening yourself up to critique and you have to be prepared and equally as accepting of it.

just some thoughts... but carry on Miss Badu. unashamedly, i think you're fantastic and respect what you do.

Peace and fakehairgrease-shuck'n'jive, I'm still alive Ms. Errkah,

Just curious, which rapper are you fucking now? are you back with one of the two dead presidents? or are you back with "com"? Oh DAS right, you back with Karl Kani, no..was it Skillz you was with? Damn it's a trip tryin to keep the stars straight. Hey since you put yo shit on blast, it's my duty to call it.

Did you pay "forreal" with ussy-pay or ash-cay for the beats das sposed to revive yo career?

your card's been pulled loooooong time ago, since the fake dread days. wait, maybe it was the three feet high and rising headwrap with the incense in the side days...

LOL. This chick gets zero respect anywhere else but on this board.
