Erykah Badu takes another shot at public nudity for the June/July 2010 cover of Vibe Magazine. Badu shares the spotlight in a duel cover with “Black Barbie” Nicki Minaj. [Click HERE for Nicki’s cover preview].
And while Erykah’s down for shedding her inhibitions, she’s also free as a bird when it comes to relationships. Badu, who fired back after facing harsh criticism during her 3rd pregnancy from her 3rd baby daddy, reveals that while cheating might be disappointing, it’s not a deal breaker in her eyes:
“I myself am not someone with a very high libido. I don’t require sex for happiness – I need companionship. I need a partner I can depend on, that I can love and grow with. But I do understand the nature of these men I’ve been with, and men in general. They have a need to chase.”
Badu, who has 3 baby daddy’s and a slew of ex-boyfriends, claims that she’s always in a relationship because Barbie & Ken dolls condition little girls to that way of life:
I’m having to recondition my brain, because the first thing I got was a doll named Barbie and she had Ken and that’s how it was supposed to be.
You’re conditioned to think that way, and when it doesn’t happen you feel you’re a failure. What we have in common, me and the brothers I’ve known, is that we are all trying to evolve
We talk a lot about things that men want. Because I want them to be happy and the more I see how the male of the species behaves, the more I understand, and the less I blame him.
Erykah explains why knowing he’s cheating doesn’t make it better or worse.
I have friends who are in polygamous relationships – they’re no more happy or sad than we are. But at least the bitches know what’s comin’ next! Full Article
So apparently Erykah blames the men in her life for being unfaithful and that everyone is till evolving. Ummmkay. But if cheating isn’t a deal breaker then why did she leave? Are you as confused as I am?
