Erykah Badu Goes Nuclear on OkayPlayer Bloggers

After word of Erykah Badu‘s third pregnancy hit the web, a torrent of negative comments was posted about her in Okay Player’s forum.  Her fans, who hold her to an “unreal” moral standard took her to task for what will be her third child out of wedlock, this time for her protege and current mate Jay Electronica.  Well, Erykah, who’s never short on words responded by opening a tirade of her own in the forum.  I peeped this first over at Necole Bitchie, check it out:

I love it! Go Erykah!!! Read The Full Post “Pregnant With Insults” Below (it’s long)

HOW DARE YOU DISRESPECT THE QUEENDOM

…AND MY CHILDREN AND MY INTELLIGENCE.

ive never been so disgusted in all of my life .
there is no other place i used to enjoy more .
i post no where else .
you guys have taken an all time low , tho.

I’LL STATE MY PEACE

i am a great mother and care giver to my 2 children and to this world .
my children are 2 of the kindest and happiest people i have met.
I home schooled them and taught them the ways of good to the best of my ability.
i am their doctor and their nurse .
and even sometimes their mother and their father.

i am an excellent mother and resent all of the negative comments and insults on my character.
I PUT MUCH TIME AND THOUGHT INTO HAVING AND RAISING MY CHILDREN.
IVE HAD THE HONORS OF HAVING 2 HOME BIRTHS AND 2 WONDERFUL PARTNERS BY MY SIDE.

every relationship i have been in was because i loved the person DEARLY and was dedicated to us “exclusively” FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS.

the fathers of my children are my brothers and friends .
we have a great deal of respect for one another and always will.
WE LOVE OUR CHILDREN TO NO END.
we took our own “vows” and CONTINUE TO UPHOLD THEM.
AND THAT IS WHAT THAT IS .

question?
WHAT IS MARRIAGE ?
WHO IS THE JUDGE?
WE ONLY UNDERSTAND THE EXAMPLES WE ARE GIVEN ( well sort of)

WOULD IT “LOOK BETTER ” TO MARRY AND DIVIORCE AND MARRY AGAIN ?
WOULD THAT BE MORALLY CORRECT ?
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE ? the government’s involvement i guess.
IDEALLY , IT WOULD BE EXCELLENT TO FIND THE MAN OR WOMAN WHO FULFILLS YOUR SPIRIT AND STAY FOR EVER AND EVER ( thru sickness and health till death do us part ) AND HAVE HEALTHY STRONG CHILDREN AS A RESULT OF A HEALTHY AND STRONG UNION.
(this CAN happen … we need much training , however.)

OR

IS IT REALLY “GOOD” TO STAY IN A RELATIONSHIP WHERE BOTH PARTIES ARE UNFULFILLED , LONGING FOR RELIEF , BRINGING one another down as a result of improper training , creating BAD ENERGY AND EXPERIENCES FOR THE CHILD TO REPEAT ?
(not to mention breeding deceit and anger and resentment )
SEEMS TO CREATE FEARFUL CHILDREN WHO TURN INTO FEARFUL ADULTS .

HOW MANY OF YOU GREW UP IN 2 PARENT HOMES THAT WERE MISERABLE AS FUCK ?
OR 2 PARENT HOMES THAT WERE NOT PERFECT BUT WORKED?
HOW MANY GREW UP IN ONE PARENT HOMES WHERE THE MOTHER WORKED HARD TO MAKE SURE YOU WERE CARED FOR BUT SHE WASNT QUITE HAPPY?
HOW ABOUT A HOME WHERE THE FATHER WAS THE MAIN CARE GIVER AND DID THE BEST HE COULD -LACKING NURTURE?
HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE A SIBLING THAT HAS A DIFFERENT FATHER OR MOTHER?
DOES HE OR SHE MEAN LESS TO YOU?
HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE MORE THAN 1 MOTHER OR FATHER OF YOUR OWN CHILDren ?
HOW MANY OF YOU HAD /OR / ARE PARENTS RESPONSIBLE ENOUGH TO MAKE GOOD DECISIONS FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR CHILDREN ,THAT DONT QUITE FIT ANY OF THESE DESCRIPTIONS?
HOW MANY OF YOU STAY IN UNHEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS FOR FEAR OF GOING TO HELL?
HOW MANY HOS OUT THERE … THAT HAVE KIDS TO GET A PAYDAY?
HOW MANY PEOPLE GETTING THEY ASS KICKED AND ARE FORCED TO SUBMIT CAUSE YO MAMA GOT HER ASS KICKED?
THEN WHAT is CORRECT?

how about this:

I PRAY WITH MY CHILDREN
I FEED THEM GOOD FOOD
THEY RESPECT PEOPLES DIFFERENCES
THEY TRAVEL THE WORLD WITH ME
THE KNOW WHO THEY ARE
THEY ADORE THEIR FATHERS AND ARE LOVED BY 2 PARENTS OR MORE -
OR TWO OR MORE SETS OF LOVING GRANDPARENTS
THEY CRY
THEY GET HURT
THEY GET SICK
THEY HEAL

THEY ARE real

THEY ARE NOT AN IDEA or a TOPIC
AND NEITHER AM I .
I AM ALIVE .
I AM BEAUTIFUL WOMAN.
I AM A GOOD WOMAM.
I AM GROWING
I AM COMPLETE WITH OR WITHOUT A PARTNER AND WILL ALWAYS BE
AND I HAVE DREAMS OF A FAMILY STRUCTURE
ALL OF MY DREAMS DO NOT COME TRUE
AND DESPITE ALL OF THE PAIN IN MY LIFE …
IN MY MOTHERS LIFE …
IN MY GRANDMOTHERS LIFE
WE HAVE ALWAYS ENDURED
AND THERE IS SO MUCH JOY TO BE EXPERIENCED.
I NEVER HAD A FATHER AND I DONT KNOW WHAT THAT FEELS LIKE -
BUT MY CHILDREN DO , AND THEY LOVE THEIR ‘PARENTS’ .

WE ARE THEIR CHAMPIONS .

live how you want . follow which ever pattern YOU like .
MY CHILDREN WILL BE LEADERS
and they will not ever be slaves to this society’s failing idea of morality.
THEY OWN THEIR MINDS AND THEIR DREAMS.

BIRTH CONTROL lol … could have 10 babies instead of 2 .

I LOVE CHILDREN AND I WILL HAVE AS MANY AS GOD WILL GIVE ME .

I AM VERY HEALTHY AND RESPONSIBLE AND SO ARE ALL OF MY PARTNERS

I CHOSE THEM WISELY AND SOBERLY .

ALL GOOD BROTHERS .

your opinions lack experience and are not only careless but also very uninformed and immature.

nothing is sacred here . and i see why.

if i loose you as a fan because i want to continue to have children then
F*CK OFF… WHO NEEDS YOU ….CERTAINLY NOT ME … KICK ROCKS … CALL TYRONE … PACK LIGHT …. BITE ME

i have defended myself here ON THIS SITE and hurled a few insults .. but only in response to your insults of
my music , my clothes , my lyrics , my hair , my being a woman , my spirit, my choices of partners….
these have all been on trial here . and i continued to support the energy of this place .

this is to all the okay players / REAL HUMAN BEINGS hiding behind screen names in order to insult one another and who ever else you will.

geeeez…
i had to say something
i am so sad for parents who try , today guys
enough is enuf.

dont judge to quickly , OKAY PLAYER?

i know you are having fun , but what if it were you and your children?
my son is 10 .
my daughter, 4 .

peace

ANALOGUE GIRL

and if this post is not clear
kiss my placenta.

  1. I love the fact that you stated what you did. You are human and you are allow to have many as you choose. I stand behind u 100%. There are many that have kids and can’t care for them you can I applaude you.. I love your music it sets the mood and tell many stories.. Thank GOD for you.. I will always be your BIGGEST #1 fAn. God Bless..

    Peace….

  3. So many of these comments must have been written out the side of your assholes. This speech is ‘ghetto’, ‘immature’?.. What?? I LOVE that she wrote this – yes, it’s raw, honest, and emotional, maybe that’s because it’s STRAIGHT from the heart. I’d be disappointed too if internet cowards were trashing me while I was living my life according to my best principles. I challenge any of these moralists go to back, re-read her post and locate the part where she loves and takes care of her children.

  4. I totally agree with Noel saying that Erykah’s speach was immature. I was quite surprised when i read her words… WTF??!! Erykah saying “Kiss my placent”?? :/ hmmm… neverthelss, I think she can’t controll her emotions, as I thought she is a WISE woman. Pity.

  5. Nuff respect for Erykah for standing up for herself! Folks are intitled to their opinion but I think some of these comments were very disrespectful….would you talk to your momma that way? We are human so reacting the way she did was her emotion. If people were dissing you and your Family i’m sure you would react the same way. I am a mother aswell, and it is a hard job. Being a fan of erykah I would never deny that she is a great mother and provider in all aspects. That’s what matters! If you have love for your children and try to teach them the right way in life, then what does it matter if she had her children out of wedlock with different partners? Her children have abundant amounts of love and her previous partners are still family. Man, people really need to mind their own! It is people like you why we have war, conflict and negativity today. Try to say something positive! Nuff love Erykah!

  6. Being honest, those words, from Erykah, made me a little astonished. I know, she might have been pissed off, but I considered her as an intelligent, always-know-what-to-say-and-how-to-say woman who is not likely to use that kind of tone. Well, pity, I see her differently now. But who cares :P
    Peace yo!

    Sorry for my English if i made mistakes. I’m learning on my own :)

  7. just because your parents aren’t married doesn’t mean you are fatherless. wtf? i bet the only reason so many of you have something to say is because you have been force fed falsehoods by your less than perfect organized religions. you can raise a child in wedlock and still have that child turn out to be a f**ked up adult. doesn’t matter how many parents they have or whether or not they are married because in reality marriage is a pagan tradition anyways…hence the ring on you finger that symbolizes that you are someones possession. marriage doesn’t mean love and married parents doesn’t mean “wholesome” upbringing. check your facts and check the fabric of your hearts because above all you are judging…and those of you who claim stakes in a religion are going against your own beliefs simply by having an opinion about something that doesn’t concern you in the first place.

  8. Ain’t this about a double standard beeotch? DIDDY HAS 3 BABY MAMAS. Flava Flav, Old Dirty Bastard, Quincy Jones, Lil Wayne,J Dilla(R.I.P), Jesse Jackson…I could go on and on about the masses of successful men that have had MULTIPLE CHILDREN OUT OF WEDLOCK and were recognized for nothing else but their success. Their talent. Their gifts to the world. Then we have a sista go and do what men have done for centuries and we jump to attack her? WTF? I know chicks that have had more abortions than sunny days. Killing our most precious resource. I respect my sistas who stick it out and are not afrsid to be true to themselves and wear ‘socially declared’ imperfections like diamond studs. So, I am still and will forever stay a Baduist-because of the musical and creativity that comes from her-It ain’t none of my business what goes on in her bed. Maybe ya’ll need to go and fuck something.

  9. I can deffinetly see what she is saying, and i agree with her, but most people couldnt afford to do this. The point is she is doing her own thing, and doin it well, and who are we to judge?

  10. Ok i feel what she sayin word 4 word but what i dont understand is why da fuck do any of u care if she wants to have another baby let her do it…ITS HER OWN FUCKIN LIFE PEOPLE! Like really, do u all live with her, are u there 2 see how she raise her kids(and if u was u would most likly hate the she doin it). The point is between silly ass blogers dissin yo so-called fav artist or whatever to the media in genral just in lives of other people day in and day out its just so sick u kno.(I STAND BY EVERYTHING I SAID!)p.s. to the people that started that shit in first place, ur not a REAL FAN OF ERYKAH BADU….d,noel,and oh yeah k.i.m.

  11. Peace wombman…creator of life…of thyself and universe…Every head is a world…yours, his, hers, them etc..the key to thoses worlds is to be open minded and know thyself doesn’t revolve the whole world…The amount of souls on this planet is universe…not just one kind, type, colour…some have a better way to describe childhood or family while others have it different..Having children does not mean to keep a man and a relationship. We are Life’s creation WO-MAN…or womb (the creation of our wombs) Man…(beings man/female)on this plantation…If there is an emotional state of mind on her mind and her expressions are offensive to her fans and others…how do you think that the wombman (Eryka) feels about her judgment of bringing life..??? because it is 3xs with different men…if she is happly to bloom flowers from her soil…and that is her LIFE…you are you, her, him, them to judge…live yours…while other lives theirs…peace equally and raspect….Positive Vibez…MjP

  12. She is a hot mess that every time she finds a man that can tolerate her sick ass more than a year she ready to give birth. What a shame yet another lost sister who does not reason that kids do not and will not keep any man home with you.

  13. Angelina Jolie has 6 children…..3 are adopted, the other 3 all have the same father. All 6 children are legally the children of Brad Pitt, Angelina’s partner.

  14. I am a huge fan of Erykah’s and I agree what with she has to say. Many times people who have kids while married are broke and can barely stay in there homes. Lets not just look at black families lets look at everyone. Angelina Jolie has kids and I don’t believe she is married and I can go down the list. White people are trashy and have kids without getting married and have them for money so pleae before we start pointing the blame at black families look at your own race and their incredible shortcomings!

  15. if you didn’t have lots of influence over our young sisters
    how you live wouldt’t really matter,but at least you can afford
    them

  16. Oh and what a great influence she is on her children!!! I wish you were my mom when i was a shorty

  17. I felt her comments were a little immature and ‘ghetto’. One thing that spirituality teaches is that one should control one’s negative emotions. Erykah’s problem goes back to childhood; her father not being there for the family. So she continues the legacy with fatherless children. She tells her fans to “Call Tyrone”, but Tyrone symbolically is her father, who was never in her life. The karma will past down to her daughter who [will] produce children with men who will not care for her. Having three children with three different dudes, is not spiritual practice as she portray herself to be externally. True spirituality is how one response to opposition. Erykah, the reason why your fans reacted the way they did is bigger than you. We have a major problem in our community: the destruction of the nuclear family and the proliferation of the single moms. The masculine principal is being removed from the family unit by the PTB. We see your life, which is not private, as a symbol of this problem in our community. Your Anhk wearing is a cover for you lack of true spiritual pursuit.

  18. I feel Erykah Badu’s frustration against people judging her but I do think it’s a little extra to have three babydaddies (IDK, it just seems little disorganized). But at the end of the day, her life works for her and like she said, her children are taken care of and happy. As long as she and her children are fulfilled then what does it matter what she does with her life. It’s about her music and talent as an artist. She gets nuff respect for defending herself the way she did.

    “Call Tyrone, pack light, bite me,” I think I’ma use that.

  19. *Rolls eyes* Sure folks could mind their business and not have an opinion. But we do. The opinion is far bigger than “Erica”.

    However, Erica is simply a symptom of the bigger disease: The deterioration of the black family. More power to her…who knows what her particular circumstances are and perhaps she has an optimal situation amongst her 3 kids and 3 baby daddies. But there are plenty other women out there that are not taking preventative measures to not get pregnant and are laying down with up with men that don’t value her enough to commit his life to her and help her to raise a family. THAT IS THE PROBLEM
