The wise healer endures the pain. Cry. Tears bring joy.
I was given a tremendous gift and a platform, and it is my responsibility to use my platform to do the work of the Most High.
I lived in Brooklyn for a couple of years. The community is very close-knit already. I remember it was raining that day, so it was a weird kind of funk on the crowd. It was so endearing to feel everybody coming together. It was almost like a cleansing. It felt super-new, renewing.
It was a really good experience for all of us. We each used our platforms to make other statements besides entertainment. We're artists who are often unheard. And Dave has chosen to define himself. I'm with that and I love him for that.
We enjoy each other's company. It was just a really tribal meeting.
He's taking control of his own image. And he's not put in a box in any way. He's getting a chance to represent himself.
I think someone else told him, ... He didn't even know who I was. It made me feel a little proud. I had the opportunity to be brand new. I felt that someone appreciates me and wanted me for my work, not my reputation.
We literally just finished making this gown 20 minutes ago. I love it. It's my favorite color.

Never knew what a friendship was, Never knew how to really love, You can't be what I need you to
My eyes are green, Cause I eat a lot of vegetables,It don't have nothing to do with your new friend
As Erykah Badu, it has nothing to do with me, the way I look, my hair wrap, my style, it's about you and what you feel for my music. If I can make you feel like the way that people who influenced me made me feel, that's completion.
I think a lot of people have lost respect for the individual, you know, the individual, the person who doesn't conform.
I'm free. I just do what I want, say what I want, say how I feel, and I don't try to hurt nobody. I just try to make sure that I don't compromise my art in any kind of way, and I think people respect that.
