Erykah Badu & Jay Electronica Have A Little Mars

Just as we predicted, Erykah Badu and Jay Electronica gave their new baby girl a peculiar moniker.  Mars Merkaba is her name, and she's only a few days old.  And Erykah made the official announcement on--you guessed it--Twitter.  Mars, Seven, and Puma will I'm sure be an interesting bunch of kids.  Congrats again to E & J!

SILVERSHADOW: Well.. It’s a little different but… I ain’t neva saying shit slick about nothing Badu does or say. I know for a fact that underneath all that mother earth persona…. She straight Gangsta… and yall know she on the YBF. Learn to spell, fool. God gave you a mind, didn't he? Why do you bring such shame on your foremothers and forefathers? Generations of slaves didn't stand tall to let their great-great-grandchildren grow up talking like uneducated trash. Shame on you. And shame on every one of you who gets angry from this. Ought to make you angry that our people have stooped so LOW. Where's the DIGNITY???

[quote comment="412030"]... Puma to Mars, "is that my daddy or your Mars." I don't know I'm confused.[/quote] LMAOROTF!!! For some reason I found the "Puma to Mars" line hysterical! The two names together like that do not sound so good, but I kinda like the name. I'd like it more if it were Jupiter; Jupiter sounds more feminine. It's better than "Apple," I think. And yes, I am bothered by the 3 baby daddy thing--and it's not just because she's a she. I don't care for men with multiple baby mamas either. And for those folks condoning these actions by saying, "At least she's 40 opposed to 26" (Doesn't that make it worse? I thought we got wiser as we aged, not stay the same or get more foolish) or "At least they take care of their kids." Is that what we've really gotten to?

Whats the big deal about the

Whats the big deal about the names when this RAT has 3 baby daddies? Its wack. But its her perogative. I've been pissing people off about my opinion about this bt who cares. She's who she is so of course guys will get with her, except for me! But regular girls has no chance. I'm sure there are exceptions. Anyway she can name them kids shyt and i wouldn't care. RAT! The fellas are not exempt from this opinion either Ladies!

I'm sick of black people

I'm sick of black people having baby daddies. Find something else to do with your time Ms. Badu. Try an educate the youth about having unprotected sex or something. How many more baby daddies is she going to have. I'm sure the kids are going to be very confused with all these dufferent daddies coming around. Puma to Mars, "is that my daddy or your Mars." I don't know I'm confused.

Besides i understand the significance behind Seven and Puma. Mars is probably significant to the couple in a way in which we just may not understand. More power to them![/quote] Ok you understand but I aong with others do not. It should have been a nickname. These kids have to grow up, celeb's or not, in the REAL WORLD.

I hate folks that try tooo

I hate folks that try tooo hard to be different. Naming children Apple, mars, Puma, etc is just plain foolishness and the parents should be ashame. Those children have to go around being teased and it is ashame that they parents r setting them up. Erica should have changed her names to Mars and lets see if she likes that. Stupid

I LOVE E'BADU SO SHE CAN NAME HER KIDS WHATEVER SHE WANTS AND I WOULDN'T HAVE A PROBLEM W/I T. It's like that people you like always get a pass, it's not right but that's the way it is. Besides I've heard worst if you really consider this bad. Jermain Jackson named his son Jermajesty. WTF is that?! Atleast, Seven, Puma, and Mars are cute unique names...in my opinion.
