Common Discusses the Womanly Wiles of Erykah Badu…


The Tonight Show with Jay Leno - Erykah Badu

Have you ever noticed that there are certain women who seem to have an innate ability to ‘enchant’ men? Women such as Elizabeth Taylor, Kim Kardashian & Diane Ross just to name a few, and my personal favorite Miss Erykah Badu. A running joke in Hip Hop circles is that Erykah Badu has some unexplainable power to radically transform any emcee by just being involved with her….  Just ask Andre 3000, Common & The D.O.C.  They’ve all had relationships with her and were quite smitten.

Common gave his two cents on Erykah’s womanly wiles stating: “Yeah, the ‘Badu Box’ is real. It can take you to another universe. But seriously that’s when you meet somebody that’s real special and you’re like, Man, this woman got… she got something else man. It ain’t just the sex. It ain’t just the looks. It’s like something that’s kind of like spirit-wise where you’re like, This woman got something else…”  Wow. I read Common’s book and he has a whole chapter dedicated to her. He was in love with her completely and totally. When they broke up she simply called him and said “Hey I don’t want to be in relationship anymore, I’m liking someone else…” Ouch! Now that was cold blooded. And, it took awhile for Common to recover from that heartbreak.

I’ve always wondered what Erykah’s secret was. Her confidence, her creativity, her charm?  Deep down I think  all women have this power. We just have to know how to use it and with whom… Own your power ladies, but don’t break any hearts along the way 🙂
