Why Did Erykah Badu Gets Pulled Over By The Police?!

Erykah Badu recently had an awkward encounter with the boys in blue, but not because she did anything wrong.

The singer took to Instagram with a video recorded while she was pulled over by police in Dallas, Texas.

According to Erykah, the only reason she got pulled over was so the officer could say hello.

“OK, it’s New Year’s Eve. I just got pulled over,” she said in the video.

“And why are you pulling me over?” she asked two cops, at which point one of the officers bends down with a giant smile.

“Because I wanted to say hi!” he said.

Wellness Goddess : Erykah Badu Gives Us Tips To A Great Holistic Life

Erykah Badu wears many hats. There’s the Neo-Soul Queen hat, the Doula hat, and the DJ hats, but there’s also the wellness hat. Back in the day around 2003, she appeared in the documentary Holistic Wellness for the Hip Hop Generation to share her take on what it means to be healthy. Spoiler: It involves lots of chlorophyll. Badu has alot of health and wellness wisdom. Below are her 18 greatest tips.

1. Wellness means more than just a yearly physical.
“There are actually five doctors I go by: Doctor sleep, doctor diet, doctor sun, doctor nutrition, and doctor spirit.”

2. Don’t eat animals.
“I’ve been vegan-vegetarian [from] about the time my first album came out, so it was 1997.”

3. Treat your vagina like a mixed drink.
“Ladies .. For a SWEET vagina I drink raw cranberries often. Now the secrets out. [sic] (Reluctantly) Also promotes healthy, strong WOMB & bladder.”

4. But, uh, don’t expect your vagina to actually smell like cranberries.
“My vagina smells like strawberries.”

5. Give yourself a grown-up time-out.
“I have a teepee where I put myself in time-out.”

6. Use a rock-crystal deodorant to communicate with your brain. 
“That shit works. You have to stroke under the arm one hundred times on each side. Then you don’t have to put no more on for like three days … It neutralizes the skin. It has to send a signal to the midbrain so neurologically you can stop being musty. It just doesn’t work like regular deodorant.”

7. The best sex is boring sex.
“Missionary is good for your organs.
It’s good for your intestines, the gallbladder, and the liver, and the spleen.”

8. But no sex is also fine.
“I don’t require sex for happiness — I need companionship.”

9. Real friends becomes doulas for each other. 
“It was 9/11, actually. Around that time [I decided to become a doula]. One of my girlfriends was in labor, she happened to be the wife of stic.man from Dead Prez.”

10. Buy some expensive rocks.

“Crystals are our friends. Crystals hold the memory of this planet. They’re like computers.”

11. Start each morning with a shot.
“I do the same thing every day. I get up. Drink a lot of water. Have a wheatgrass shot. Drink some green juice. Eat as healthy as I can. I’m not trying to win an award for being the best vegetarian, just want to be healthy.”

12. Be drama-free.
“I don’t drink, smoke or have any vices.”

13. Share your anger schedule with everyone.
“Make sure every body is in the know about which days U can be smooth fucked with. Know your emotional cycle/ pattern. It lessens the blow.”

14. Sitting meditation? Yawn. Try walking meditation.
“I practice walking meditation, meaning the breath — honing my breath at any moment. When I feel it getting shallow, that means I’m anxious about something and then I consciously slow it down and do some deep breathing.”

15. Stretch to remember yourself.
“I love the connection I have with myself every time I take a yoga class. It’s a very nice remembering, remembering the parts of me. You know what I mean?”

16. Drink fancy water.
“Coconut water [is my post-workout drink of choice] because it really hydrates the body.”

17. Treat your body like the luxury vehicle it is.
“If your body was a Lamborghini, you wouldn’t put no bullshit gas in it. It’s important that you put the right thing for the right kind of machine in your body. It needs the right kind of nutrients, and that’s high alkaline foods.”

18. Forget about the dumb past!
“I’m at peace because I’m right here in the moment. This is here, we are here, this is now. And staying in the here gives me peace. When I am worried about the past or concerned about the future, you know, there’s a little anxiety there. But ain’t nothing here right now but you, me, the phone, the room, the doll … everything else is something we’re making up in our mind. I stay outta my mind.”

8 Things We’ve Learned From Erykah Badu’s Music


Erykah Badu set the Neo-Soul music scene on fire in 1996 and got things on and popping. Since that time her voice as an artist has grown along with the respect she’s gained as a woman. Erykah gave birth to a sound that is so unique to her, yet so conscious and so relevant (ie :why my instagram name being voyage_to_baduizm) She’s a woman who is not ashamed of her truth, nor is she afraid to share it.



I’ve had the pleasure of learning many things about the Queen of Neo-Soul. Her willingness to share her truth in a raw and uncut fashion is yet another reason why we can’t get enough of Erykah Badu, a.k.a Fat Belly Bella, a.ka. DJ Low-Down Loretta Brown…we could keep going! I ❤❤❤ and Adore this Woman. Erykah Badu is so Icon and thats why she’s my idol 👑


1. She likes being kissed on the neck.( Kiss My Neck).

2. We know she believes in the after life. (Next Lifetime)

3. She has no problem giving a fool the boot. (Tyrone)

4. She is the Original Trap Queen. (Danger) & (Other Side if the Game)

5. Being with her is a life changing experience (Fall In Love… Your Funeral)

6. Every now and again she needs some me time. (Window Seat)

7. She can make you put your phone down. (Phone Down)

8. She DONT want your negro (Booty)


Weekend Winter Style Inspirations

Listen, it’s COLD here in Vegas but not as COLD as NY (Thank Gawd). Some days aren’t as cold as others but it’s still COLD. If you live somewhere that typically dips below 50 degrees regularly for a season, this is nothing new to you. It’s supposed to be cold where you are. You might even be tempted to let your good fashion sense fall to the wayside. And I totally would understand.

BUT why when you can be cute, stylish, AND warm? I’ve done winter outfit ideas and weekend outfit ideas  on the blog in the past and not sure why I neverhave but planning on it (every weekend…..i hope).

This week’s weekend winter outfit idea is an example of some of the things I love to do with clothing. I like to put together pieces that seem expected because once you put them together it’s like perfect harmony.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day 🏆🏆


Thanks for taking the time to GLOW,

Erykah Badu throws SHADE at Iggy Azalea


The Soul Train Awards aired this evening and I must say — Erykah Badu is the best awards show host, ever!

With that being said, it wasn’t even 10 minutes into her hosting before she had us laughing out loud.

One moment in particular made us laugh SO hard — and it definitely was a fact so she wasnt lying lol . Erykah told the audience that she banned rappers from the ceremony, but then she got a “call” from Iggy Azalea.

“No, you can come! What you’re doing is definitely NOT rap,” Erykah told “Iggy” over the phone.
