Probably the most endearing part is when she opens up about her son with André 3000, Seven—who is “talented by default”, helping create her ‘Hotline Bling’ remix and has been a huge Drake fan since he was a kid. Ms Badu divulged the adorable story of her first meeting with Drizzy, after she asked him to pay a surprise visit to Seven’s school when he was in grade 6. Drake, being the generous Badu-loving person that he is, happily obliged and they’ve been buddies ever since. You can hear the story first-hand at about the 14-minute mark.
Badu’s got a tonne of stories, though, and some pretty badass one-liners including:
“I don’t remember, I smoked my whole memory away.”
“If you see me in a fight with a bear, help the bear. Pour honey on me.”
“[Missionary position] it’s the safest way… because it’s good for the organs.”
