Erykah Badu Brought the Funk At LollapaloozaAugust 9th, 2010
During Erykah Badu’s hour-long set at Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago on Sunday, the Grammy-recording singer recalled a memory of her school class being asked the classic question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Her response: “I just wanna be funky.”
Style-wise she has always realized that aspiration with her ever-evolving hairdos and outfits. We’ve seen her go from head wraps and mud cloth dresses to a B-girl style complete with Kangol hats and Adidas suits and then morph again into Rick James-esqe braids and ’70s inspired gear. Heck, we even saw her get butt naked all together in her controversial music video “Window Seat” but we’ve never seen Erykah like this!
A bleach-blonde mohawk!? Only Badu! She rocked her new hair with a ladylike vintage-looking dress and accessorized up the wazoo with a Louis Vuitton belt, full arm cuffs, wing earrings, rings and black booties. There’s so much going on here I don’t even know where to begin but works for her!
Hate it or love it she’s owning it!
Are you feeling the look?
