I <3 Erykah

January 28, 2009

Mika, I know you’ll feel me on this one…

I can’t say that I have any style icons.  I do, however, have people I’d like to swagger-jack.  Ms. Badu is most definitely one of those people.  It takes a special kind of person to be a complete individual, fully comfortable in your own skin and fiercely unapologetic for it.  Through each transition she’s made over the course of her career, she has been that way and I love her for it.

This is an old video, but I can’t get enough of it.

“How to Make it in the Music Industry”

Last night while I was in the middle of deep conditioning my hair I turned to the VH1 Soul channel.  At the time, they were playing all of the live artist performances and the moment I saw a red shirt and purple jeans, I got excited.  This was a great set for her.  I would have given my right arm and half my shoe collection to be at this show.  I mean, I’ve seen her live (and she’s SICK live), but something about this show was special.  Oh well.  I can still vibe out whenever I see it on tv.

“Annie”

“Soldier”

Enjoy.

My blog’s new home is up; you should go there.

    I hate that I keep missing her live. She’s about to drop her baby this spring so I’m not sure what effect that will have on New Amerykah Part 2. I heart her ‘whatness’ (as one of my philosophy professors used to say).
