Erykah Badu's retorts to critics of her age
Even though Erykah Badu's admirers were ecstatic to read her post and showered her with love and blessings in the comments, Erykah Badu isn't sure why writers feel the need to include her age in most stories about her.
Following her formal announcement of her relationship with Jaron Adkison, various websites published gossip pieces on their age discrepancies.
Badu is 50 years old and Adkison is 27 years old, according to reports. Fans understandably had concerns about how they're able to maintain such a solid friendship even though they are 23 years apart in age.
When people started making a big deal about the age gap, the legendary singer responded with a tweet, wondering why people always feel the need to mention her age (and the age of other women over thirty) when articles are published about them.
"Why every time there is an article about women over 30 the journalist mentions the age?" she asked. "Erykah Badu', 50 does the splits... e. Badu 50, had feelings...' It ain't my birthday or death day. So, what does this MEAN?"
