Neo-Soul singer Erykah Badu just can not do any wrong… We love Erykah, so when we saw this throwback video of the songstress surprising lunchroom students at Malcolm X Shabazz High School in Newark, New Jersey, we were excited like we were sitting right there …of course, we weren’t though!


The clip, shot in 2014, shows Ms. Badu singing her 1997 debut hit ‘On & On,’ during the school students lunch-hour. According to Pitchfork, the performance was in partnership with The Future Project, which promotes that “young people everywhere should have opportunity to discover their potential and build the skills they need to change their lives and world.


You gotta check the clip, especially to see the bit where she takes a bite out of one of the pupils lunch. Check it out, right here:



In other news, Badu responded on Twitter with controversary, to the online debate on student uniforms, after a New Zealand school enforced girls to wear their skirts below the knee to prevent the attention of male staff and boys, which sparked some criticism. A conversation which began when Erykah spilled her thoughts on twitter, April 11th.


“There was an article ruling that high school girls lower their skirts so male teachers are not distracted. I agreed because I am aware we live in a sex I-driven society. It is everyone’s, male and female’s, responsibility to protect young ladies.”






“I want my daughters to understand this. I want them to be themselves and wear what they like, yet be aware. Not ignore our differences,” she continued. “Males should be taught to be responsible for their actions from childhood. It’s not ok to ‘prey’ on young women…But do I think it is unnatural for a heterosexual male 2b attracted to a young woman in a revealing skirt? No. I think it is his nature…Consequently, we must all be aware and responsible. We must protect our young women. We must teach our young men.”




A response from Badu’s tweets came shortly there after:
