Erykah Badu Shows Off Her Belly in Awesome Video: ‘Bye Skinny Bitches’
Erykah Badu was feeling herself and showed fans why she’s nicknamed FatBellyBella. On Saturday (Oct. 22), the veteran singer posted a video of herself dancing to the groove in a bikini.
Donning a mismatched two-piece swimsuit, which revealed her belly, Badu pursed her lips and let her hips do the work. In the caption, she wrote, "FATBELLYBELLA ... I loooooove fluffy cuff season bye skinny bitches.”
We don’t know what prompted the Analogue Girl in a Digital World (*Badu’s other alias*) to shake her groove thang but we think it has something to do with her hosting the 2016 Soul Train Awards, which will air on Nov. 27 at 8PM ET on BET.
Reactions to the video was overwhelmingly positive. No body shaming here.
"A thick chocolate TEXAS chick is all you need this season," wrote one fan, while another follower wrote, "Yasss! Get it! Love the skin you're in; we are infinitely beautiful."
However, when someone suggested that Badu might be pregnant, Badu quickly shot down any baby talk. "Y'all thinking waaaay too hard . I just got a fat ass belly," she tweeted.
In another video, Badu encouraged fans to cop D.R.A.M.'s debut album, Big Baby D.R.A.M., which is in stores now. The singer appears on the melodic ballad "WiFi," where she coos digitally-related come-ons to the Virginia-based rapper.
