If you saw photos and video of Erykah Badu at Lollapalooza, you probably have two questions.
1: What was Erykah going for with that fabulous out-there hair?
And 2: Where can I get a pair of those AMAZING earrings???
Thanks to the article and video interview on Billboard.com -we know that soon enough those enormous gold earrings will be available for sale!
“Long known for her jewelry and fashion choices, Badu says that her huge gold earrings (which she wore for her Lollapalooza performance as well) are not just something she bought: the styles are called Baduwings and Earwings — and they’re the centerpiece of Funktional Art, her first-ever line of jewelry. Fans at her most recent shows may have noticed the earrings onsale at the merch booth, but anyone will be able to pick up a pair plus other items in her Funktional Art line on erykahbadu.com beginning in late-August or September. Badu says that she has already made arrangements to sell them in boutiques in Chicago, Dallas, New York, London and Paris.
“It’s the beginning of a new thing for me,” she says of the jewelry line. “I’m working with different designers to come up with things that fit me and fit the fans who support me and fit the women who feel free and can fly.”
The accompanying video interview is awesome. In case y’all didn’t know – Erykah is here to STAY!
She totally knew she had the audience in the palm of her hand during her Lollapalooza performance. I agree completely!
Would you rock a pair of Erykah Badu’s Earwings? I most definitely would!
