Music, Hear This Erykah Badu

Erykah Badu

Erykah Badu's sneaky allure comes from the way she can tinge her own feminine mystique with hip-hop's gruff legacy. Her style is at once funky-slow-singing and funeral-flower-bringing, to paraphrase a Notorious B.I.G. verse she also lifts for her upcoming album,…

Culture, Stage Cross-Eyed

Cross-Eyed

I never thought of Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye as being funny. Fierce, yes. Emotional, certainly. But it's hardly the stuff of broad comedy. After all, the novel tells the story of an impoverished 11-year-old black girl's journey from self-loathing…
