Erykah Badu, in recent times, has been caught in social media exchanges, following a post about cheating with “soft dudes”. 

In the post, she allegedly joked about cheating with “soft dudes” who likely wouldn’t be tuning into the Super Bowl. 

The R&B legend, on Sunday, February 11, 2024, took to X, formerly Twitter, before the Super Bowl LVIII matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.

In the post, the Dallas native announced that the day was an opportunity for people to cheat on their football-crazed lovers with a “soft dude” since the “men” in their lives would be focused on the game. 

The 52-year-old’s post did not go unnoticed and appeared to have ruffled a few feathers of followers who disagreed with her post. When a follower indicated that Badu is “too old for this”, the singer responded by saying the person’s eyes “are very close together,” in an apparent reference to the profile picture.

Badu then went ahead to advise her followers to “unfollow” her account if they are uncomfortable with her jokes. 

In other news, Erykah Badu was the headline performer of the 2023 LA3C Festival which was held in Los Angeles. Other performers on the bill included Robert Glasper, Flying Lotus, Questlove, Sudan Archives and more. 

Returning for the second year, the three-day event came with an updated focus on the best of L.A.’s music, food, and film scenes. 

The event, which took place from 11th to 12th November 2023, had quests invited to downtown L.A.’s Historic Core, as well as activating events at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel, Los Angeles Theatre, Orpheum Theatre, and the Palace Theatre.  Over the weekend, ticket holders were treated to a wide range of artists, tastemakers, performers, and vendors to celebrate the uniqueness of the city. 

Guests also had the opportunity to shop at the 2023 LA3C festival at the first-ever Bazaar on Broadway, which featured Black Market Flea.
