Erykah Badu Admits She ‘Saw Something Good in Hitler’

erykah badu hitler

Erykah Badu’s interview with Vulture went all the way left when the interviewer asked her about being linked to Louis Farrakhan and his alleged anti-Semitism. Here’s what the singer had to say in response:

“I’m not an anti-Semitic person. I don’t even know what anti-Semitic was before I was called it. I’m a humanist. I see good in everybody. I saw something good in Hitler.”

When the interviewer asked her to clarify her statement, she said: “Hitler was a wonderful painter.”

That prompted the interviewer to respond with, “No, he wasn’t! And even if he was, what would his skill as a painter have to do with any ‘good’ in him?”

And then things got really weird…

“Okay, he was a terrible painter. Poor thing. He had a terrible childhood. That means that when I’m looking at my daughter, MarsBadu’s daughter with enigmatic rapper Jay Electronica. She also has another daughter, Puma, with the West Coast rapper the D.O.C., I could imagine her being in someone else’s home and being treated so poorly, and what that could spawn. I see things like that. I guess it’s just the Pisces in me.”

And she went on and on, trying to defend her original statement.

“You asked me a question. I could’ve chosen not to answer. I don’t walk around thinking about Hitler or Louis Farrakhan. But I understand what you’re saying: ‘Why would you want to risk fueling hateful thinking?’ I have a platform, and I would never want to hurt people. I would never do that. I would never even imagine doing that. I would never even want a group of white men who believe that the Confederate flag is worth saving to feel bad. That’s not how I operate.”

  1. “We can read the full interview here”..mmmm im good.. ? sounds like she use those funky long pinky nails to snort some TYPE of narcotics before that interview.. ? she looks super weird in that pic… Like the riddler.. Or better yet a female witch doctor ??

  2. She coulda shoulda kept that opinion to herself. We don’t have to answer all questions. And why was she being interviewed anyway?

  3. Im good too @ reading anymore of the article,hitler was a terrible artist,she prob should of steered the interview in another direction,don’t trust any of these hypocrite entertainers giving history lessons or anything for that matter,do your own research mho

  4. She’s just confirming the cray cray in her. Hitler, who would have built killing factories to eliminate the entire black race. smdh.

  5. Im screaming right now!!! “Hitler was a good painter”..umm ma’am, no he the fuck wasnt. “Ok, he was a terrible painter”. LOL this heffa on one

  6. But if Hitler was alive he would have killed her black ass smh dumb should have shut up

  7. Why even say that, huh? I was about to say ‘this is will ruin her career……’ Then I remembered, what career? She’s been irrelevant for a long time, even tried making a naked video, over 10 years ago, and that didn’t work. Now she’s one step above being a cat lady…though judging from the pic, I’m thinking she’s already there

  8. I get what she was saying… perhaps Hitler was a talented painter.. after all before he became a psycho he was a lover of art etc.. it was something in his life that changed him n made him become what he became… You can be a good person once like the devil.. then turn around n become evil… that’s what I think she was trying to say but it came out the wrong way…

  9. She played a witch in that Rum Diary movie for a reason.

    Perhaps she was in full witch mode when she did his interview?

    She doesn’t give off a lot of light- seems like she taps into a lot of negative/darkness.

    That’s why she comes across as weird. Doesn’t use her powers for good- only evil.

  10. Who cares about what this irrelevant ho has to say? She’s merely a cum dumpster for Z-List rappers.
