When Erykah hit the internet the other day, showing off her new thicky-thick figure, we had one of those “Papo” from “Good Times” moments because Erykah made me say “Thelma, Thelma, Thelma!” when we saw her dancing all sexy and confident in the skin she’s in. She also proudly captioned her video with these words:
FATBELLYBELLA … I loooooove fluffy cuff season…bye skinny bi*ches #soultrainawards2016 Sunday November 27
For the record, we think there is nothing sexier than a confident women, it doesn’t matter if she’s a size 6 or 26. And that’s exactly what E. Badu let the world know when she danced for the ‘gram and let her lil’ belly pouch, thick hips and thicky-thick thighs sway for the camera.
WATCH ERYKAH FLAUNT HER THICKA THAN A SNICKA BODY WITH PRIDE
She’s never been one to run away from who she is and we love how she’s giving the message that a natural body is a beautiful body too…not every woman has to be built like a chiseled cartoon character, they’re perfect just the way they are, ‘fluffy’ bellies and ALL!
Erykah didn’t try to suck in her belly, nor pick out some perfect angling to try camouflage anything, she just took a cue from the Isley Brothers because ‘it’s her thing and she did what she wanna do.’
Here are some other examples of when Erykah didn’t care about what anyone thought and turned her pure beauty into power…
Remember when Erykah rocked her naturally gray hair for all the world to see? Stunning ain’t she?
As if “Window Seat” wasn’t already shocking enough, Erykah Badu heightened her nude walk down that Dallas street a lil’ bit more when she left her glam squad at home and chose to rock a stocking cap as her hairdo. Talk about confidence! Go ‘head Erykah!
E. BADU: ‘WHO NEEDS A WIG WHEN I HAVE MINI PLAITS UNDERNEATH?’
In 2005, Erykah Badu set “Dave Chappelle’s Block Party” documentary off when she performed on the outdoor stage in Brooklyn, NYC and decided to snatch her afro wig off at the spur of the moment because she was tired of the wind blowing it in her face. Underneath the wig, her real hair was in some mini plaits and she didn’t care what anyone in the audience, nor any of her musical peers backstage had to say. LOVE HER!
Check out her the video clip of that below, she snatches the wig off at the very end…
On a side note, check out Erykah Badu’s and Nas’ recent performance on “Jimmy Kimmell Show.” They performed their song, “For The Land,” to promote the film, “The Land”…
