Erykah Badu has just released a new mix through her Mixcloud Today. The tracklist features a unique list of classic soul and jazz, as well as the Queen’s own music from her huge catalogue. Check out the official mix below.
Erykah Badu has hilariously laughed off rumors that she is currently pregnant. Rumors of Badu’s possible pregnancy began this week with a number of different websites posting pictures of Badu wearing a crop top at a live show and pointing to what appeared to be a larger stomach. “No, just fat,” the singer humorously wrote on Twitter in response to the rumors.

(AllHipHop News) Azealia Banks and Erykah Badu got into a Twitter exchange today. The back-and-forth stemmed from a fan asking Badu if she listened to Banks’ music, and the “On & On” singer simply replied “tried.”
Banks saw the tweet and went back at Badu by claiming the statement was a sign of “jealousy.” The two performers ended the social media conversation seeming to have settled any issues between them.

Erykah Badu is our new favorite prankster. The singer crashed a live TV news broadcast in a few fantastic ways. News anchor Mario Diaz was trying to report on Shia LaBeouf’s arrest for New York’s PIX 11, but was interrupted by Badu and her huge white hat. She made some lewd hand motions — sex jokes! — walked back and forth and tried to kiss Diaz. Like a true professional, he stiff-armed her and pushed her out of the frame.
Some people on Twitter thought the culprit looked like Badu, but she denied it at first. Luckily for the TV-watching world, the truth came out.
#Btw my wife and 2-year-old were 20 yards away when it happened… She saw the roll up, you putting on hat & everything.

Later, Diaz and PIX 11 acknowledged Badu and all was right in the TV anchor videobomb world. Check out the full video below.
