Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter has stunned the public again! She has started her new private part smelling business venture that has sold out in minutes, but where did she begin? Badu stepped on to the music scene with her first single “On&On”. She stunned audiences with her lyrical prowess and sultry vibe. She crowned out lyrics such as, “I was born underwater with three dollars and six dimes. Yeah, you may laugh, but you did not do your math.” Her lyric describing her three hundred and sixty-degree awareness of knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. Her first single was followed by several successful albums such as Baduizm.
Erykah’s next business venture outside singing and songwriting was acting! Badu made her acting debut in the movie Blues Brothers 2000 alongside Dan Aykroyd and James Brown. Even though the movie failed at the box office, Badu continued her acting career in films The Cider House Rules, Before the Music Dies, and Dave Chappelle’s Block Party. She did not just stop at movies, also did a few guest appearances in TV shows such as sitcom Girlfriends. Badu’s acting venture has to lead her to win several awards and nominations with the Screen Actors Guild Award and Black Reel Awards.
Recently Badu has ventured into the business of incense in which she created one to smell like her vagina. The incense was priced at $50 a pack and sold out in nineteen minutes flat with preorders. The incense pack comes with 20 sticks. Badu thanked her fans for their support via Instagram and announce that more will be available soon. She ended her video displaying more of her lyrically genius. As eager fans await their package of private part smelling incense, others are left asking – how did she do it?
While Badu was doing marketing for her incense, she let fans know that the incense is authentic! ““I took lots of pairs of my panties, cut them up into little pieces and burned them,”” she says in an interview. The incenses are also made to have some of the burnt pieces of her underwear made into them. Searching through the internet, there are not very many reviews of the smell yet, as the packages do not ship until March 10th. However, fans in the comments are definitely wondering if the incense does have a Badu smell!
Badu’s incense has definitely taken social media by storm! Some fans have approached her, asking if she was inspired by actress Gwyneth Paltrow. Paltrow recently released her candle Goop, which she claims was created to smell like her vagina. Paltrow’s scented candle is said to have been created by a friend who is a perfumer. It is safe to say that Paltrow may not have put as much of herself into the candle as Badu; however both have sold out quickly. The numbers do not lie, the public likes the smell of the celebrities privates!
