It’s a question we’ve always wondered: How did Erykah Badu’s mother feel about the Outkast track “Ms. Jackson”?

Let’s go back to the year 2000, when the Stankonia album was released. For some, “Ms. Jackson” was a song being blasted in your cars while driving to high school. For others, it was a track you were twerking or two-stepping to while at a local night club. Either way, the song takes us all back to a certain time or place.

You probably even remember belting out the lyrics, “I’m sorry, Ms. Jackson, I am for real, never meant to make your daughter cry, I apologize a trillion times.” And for those of us old enough to understand, we know that those very lyrics were meant for Badu’s mother.

Erkyah and Outkast frontman Andre 3000 dated for a while and even conceived a child together. But at some point during the relationship, Andre broke Badu’s heart and felt the need to apologize to her mother.


One would think Badu’s mom would have broken every record she got her hands on, but it was quite the opposite. During an interview with Rap Radar, the 45-year-old songstress suggested her mother was a huge fan of the track. “How did my mama feel?” Badu said. “Baby, she bought herself a ‘Ms. Jackson’ license plate. She had the mug, she had the ink pen, she had the headband, everything. That’s who loved it.”

The Texas native added,  “He just said how he felt, and it was his honest feelings. And I always respected that and listened to what he felt and appreciated it.”

But while her mother was pro “Ms. Jackson,” Erykah wasn’t exactly on the ‘I love it’ joy ride. “It hit kind of a sore spot,” Badu suggested. “I didn’t wanna hear that, especially when I heard Big Boi’s verse. When I heard Andre’s verse, I felt very good because his verse was really, really inspiring.”

The song, by the way, was written following the pair’s 1999 breakup.

AMAs: Was Pink Hating On Christina Aguilera’s Whitney Houston Tribute? Why Her Stank Face Has Gone Viral!



Pink’s stank face officially became the GIF and meme of the 2017 American Music Awards.

It was during Christina Aguilera’s Whitney Houston tribute that cameras captured Pink making a not so sweet face. Now, given how spectacular the performance was, it could’ve been the “she’s killing it” stank face that musicians love to make.

But … given the pair’s history, fans are speculating that the pop star was simply not a fan of Aguilera’s set. “Pink I feel ya girl. That Whitney Houston tribute was horrendous. Christina tried it,” one fan said.

The good news is, Pink really did enjoy her former frenemy’s performance. “Yes. THIS. Christina f*cking killed it tonight for one of our favorite singers ever,” she tweeted on Sunday night. “This about Whitney, and I am in awe of Christina’s talent. Show the clip where I’m in tears, you negative Nancy’s.”

Pink and Christina have had ongoing beef for years, but during a recent appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, Pink explained that the two simply grew up. “She’s so talented, she’s a really sweet person. We made up on The Voice,” she said.

The singer added, “I hadn’t seen her in years and years an years. We became moms, we grew up, we hugged it out.”

There you have it folks, Pink and Christina are still on good terms.
