Erykah Badu is definetly doing her own thing. She was quoted in a response to Okayplayer.com, regarding her recent announcement of another baby by rapper Jay Electronica, "I am a great mother and caregiver to my two children, and to this world," Badu wrote. "My children are two of the kindest and happiest people I have met ... 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."
She continues her response with an explanation of her relationships with Andre and D.O.C., explaining that she didn't go into each situation lightly, before asking how having a child out of wedlock is better than marrying and then later divorcing.
Now I am not one to criticize but if you have to be mother and daddy to your kids and fathers "ARE" in the picture then why not just go to a sperm bank? Why choose a flesh and blood person if procreation is the intention of your relationship.
Her comment about having a child out of marriage is better then marrying and divorcing is simply a crazy ass statement. First off I don't think people enter into marriage with the purpose of divorcing. I think bringing a child into the world should be a conscious choice. Though divorced, I believe in the institution of marriage. I love the thought of having a soulmate (note I did not make that plural) for the rest of my life. To find that special someone, I feel is ultimately the culmination of a wonderful relationship.
