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.
Tiffany Haddish’s Hilarious Speech At Model Chanel Iman’s Wedding
Tiffany Haddish is one helluva lively and colorful human; so it’s not exactly shocking that she turned what would be considered a traditional wedding speech into a whelp … Haddish speech.
Just one night before hilariously taking the stage at the Oscars alongside Maya Rudolph, the Girls Trip star delivered an epic speech at the wedding of model, Chanel Iman, and New York Giant star, Sterling Shepard.
Although giving a seemingly witty speech, she also made an appoint to talk about how special her relationship was with Chanel, whom she met on the set of Mad Families. “I knew you could take care of any man you decided to take care of and I’m glad you decided to take care of that one cause I can see his soul,” Tiffany said, according to Brides.com.
The actress continued, “I looked into his eyeballs when you brought him to the comedy club. That’s a good man….[To Sterling] You better worship the ground she walk on cause she’s got a gangster ass bitch that got her back. Sorry, pastor!”
Haddish then went on to give some important advice. “Make sure y’all have fun together,” she said. “I ain’t that old, but I’m old, but I ain’t that old. But I’ve seen things. From my observation, the relationships that last the longest are the relationships where you have fun. You are going to have your ups and your downs, but find time to have fun.”
According to Chanel, the two grew close on set, mainly because they wound up sharing a trailer together. “During filming, I didn’t have a trailer so she was kind enough to share hers with me,” Chanel told Brides.com. “So for a month, we were sharing a trailer and going over lines together. We laughed, we cried, we bonded. She’s like a big sister to me.”
Chanel and Sterling exchanged vows in front of their close family and friends on March 3 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
