Erykah Badu Discusses Reaction To Comments About R. Kelly

Erykah Badu says her comments about controversial singer R. Kelly were taken out of context. Badu was severely criticized on the internet after she told her fans that she was going to pray for Kelly during a concert in Chicago. “I hope he sees the light of day if he’s done all those things that we’ve seen on TV and heard those ladies talk about,” she prayed. “I hope he sees the light of day and comes forward.” However, in an interview with Essence.com, Badu claims her comments were misunderstood. “There’s no deep meaning to it, you know. Unconditional love is love. Love is love. And I didn’t just pray for R. Kelly: I wanted to send energy out to everybody involved, everybody that’s hurting as a result of being hurt, is what I said. And I just thought it was weird that people thought that was weird. Why is that weird that I want love for people?” she said. “We don’t have a lot of respect for the individual – not on social media. And maybe social media is not the place to discuss certain things. I learned that too,” she admitted. “I’m used to being misunderstood but I don’t mind being . the problem that may lead to the solution at some point.” Badu is currently promoting her upcoming movie What Men Want, which also stars Taraji P. Henson, Tracy Morgan, Aldis Hodge and Josh Brener. The movie is set to release in the U.S. on February 8. Copyright(c) 2019 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
