Are you still sad that you didn’t manage to get a Gwyneth Paltrow vagina candle before they sold out? Never fear, because Erykah Badu has you covered! The queen of neo-soul and often deeply problematic figure — she publicly supported R. Kelly as recently as last January and once infamously said that she ‘saw something good in Hitler’ — has never been one to keep quiet or play it safe. In a recent interview with 10 Magazine, she discussed her upcoming online store, the Badu World Market, which will launch on February 20th. Bespoke clothing and accessories will be available for sale, as well as music merch and the occasional apothecary good. And then there’s vagina incense!
The product, which will succinctly be called ‘Badu’s Pussy’, will do what it says on the tin. Badu said, ‘I took lots of pairs of my panties, cut them up into little pieces and burned them. Even the ash is part of it.’ She admits to having retired wearing underwear as a whole so she had no qualms about destroying her panties.
‘There’s an urban legend that my pussy changes men,’ she says in a tone the piece describes as ‘matter-of-fact.’ ‘The men that I fall in love with, and fall in love with me, change jobs and lives.’ So, if you’re looking to lock down that new romance in your life, perhaps the power of Badu can work wonders for you.
We’re like two months away from some d-bag celebrity releasing a d*ck-scented candle, aren’t we? You just know that Ricky Gervais has discussed it with someone as part of his ceaseless self-owning masochism that he’s convinced is making us poor liberals feel triggered. I just bought an essential oil diffuser and I’m now terrified of discovering 100% genital-juice on the shelves. Where does it end, my friends?! All suggestions welcome.
