Erykah Badu has never been one to be boring. The 48 year-old song writer, singer, performer, visual artist and doula can now add something else to her resume. She will be an incense maker.
According to an interview she did with the British publication 10 Magazine this incense will be made with cut up pieces of her underwear. The product will be known as “Badu Pussy”. She will sell it on her new online store called Badu World Market.
There has always been a mystique surrounding Badu and her “feminine wiles”. There has been a distinct change in character with regards to the men who have been in her life. See Andre 3000, Common and Jay Electronica. There is a very definite “before Badu” and “after Badu” phase.
“There’s an urban legend that my pussy changes men,” she said. “The men that I fall in love with, and fall in love with me, change jobs and lives.”
If you are curious about how the creative process behind this will happen “I took lots of pairs of my panties, cut them up into little pieces and burned them,” she shared. “Even the ash is part of it.” said Badu
I wonder if lighting this incense in closed quarters will hypnotize. We will see. –
