Foolywang Material: Erykah Badu

I loves me some Erykah and all, but this sh*t (literally because that's what it looks like) she's rocking on the top of her head as of late is not ok:

She rocked this look while performing in Dublin, Ireland last night.  And even she doesn't even look happy about this.  I know chick loves to be eclectic but this ish is worrisome.   She and Lauryn Hill are deeming themselves as captains of Team Foolywang. They need to stop.

Foolywang? i think not! As

Foolywang? i think not! As far as i'm concerned, Erykah's music is of such rich quality, that i hardly ever notice her outfits. ENTERTAINERS, like rihanna, cassie, ciara, amerie and so many others need to keep up with the trends to stay relevant in the biz. I remember when everyone i knew, hated rihanna when she released her first and second album. Ever since, she dropped "good girl gone bad", [obviously] hired a [very talented] stylist, was deemed a fashion icon, and started dating chris brown, she's suddenly the ish... her new found fame has absolutely nothing to do with her craft and the same goes for so many others. now, i'm not trying to take anything away from these sistahs, (i would kill for her wardrobe!=) i just want to point out the fact that you can't expect that type of showmanship from ms. badu. besides, i like the entire outfit and...who knows? maybe that knot on top of her head holds some siginificance....

At least she doesn't spend

At least she doesn't spend all of her time trend-chasing. She does HER...to the fullest. If it's not your cup of tea, don't wear it.

Regardless of what Ms. Erykah

Regardless of what Ms. Erykah Badu wears, she is a great present, a great intellect and extremely talented. Her message and voice holds a lot more substance than most of these artists you post. But I' am not hating... I' am just really sensitive about my favourite artist :D

[quote comment="132433"]When people will understand that people with REAL talent, REAL ARTIST have a creative mind! They not going to be on stage dressing like on a Armani Show! They are UNIQUE, just like their creations!.[/quote] THANKS A MILLION!!!!! I don't care what she has on her head, feet, or in her teeth (silly, I know) she can do NO wrong as far as I am concerned. She is beautiful and I am glad she is STILL showing her creativity through her music and her appearance. At least she's kept it real after all these years in the business. She didn't let it get to her, she didn't change up on us....

[quote comment="132411"]I kinda like it! It fits her.[/quote] I agree, she is known for having something going on with her hair/head so it shouldn't be such a big deal it's a Erykah thing. Mis Hill on the other hand was on some not so good, new shit, so that didn't fit her, it just made us wonder what the hell was going on.

[quote comment="132537"]Why

[quote comment="132537"]Why oh why must she go this way? There are ways to be pretty without being Beyonce or "ghetto chic" as some might say, but she is starting to look silly! My friend just remineded me of how cute Lauryn used to look. I mean she had people wanting to rock her style. Maybe Badu and Hill go to this extreme because they don't want anyone copying their styles, but they sho' copying each other. Remember Ms. Hill said in some interview that fans started copying her style of dress and wearing Maryley shirts and dreading their hair. It was a long time ago, but the interview mentioned something like that. She sounded pissed about looking in the audience and seeing people dressed like her.[/quote]... Trust me Lauryn doesn't have to worry about anybody copying her"Bozo the Clown" look anymore!!! Ericka may dress a mess but Lauryn acts a base head mess!!!! People copying your style should be flattering, you don't her Beyonce complaining, the minute the stop looking at you is the minute they stop buying your records!!!!

Being an artist is being

Being an artist is being creative and imaginative.Not only being well dressed and all. So i'm not shocked about Badu outfit.She is a huge and talented artist who can allow herself certain things like having on her a creative outfit.All that match with her creative mind.after all,We all know her eccentricity side!!!
