When you see Erykah Badu these days, she, for the most part, is pretty covered up. Her signature sense of style right now is loose and flowing clothing and lots of fun accessories. But every now and then, Badu has a “Window Seat” moment where she strips down (not completely though) and lets her curves be seen and fangirled over.
The 47-year-old singer posted a photo of herself standing in a cut-out red swimsuit and chunky white sneakers, with a belly chain and her thick mane pulled to the side. She captioned it, comically, “12/15 – bout to get flewd out.”
“Flewd” or “flewed out” is attributed to recent water drinking convert Yung Miami of City Girls. While trying to promote a twerking challenge back in November for the group’s single “Twerk,” the rapper said, “City girls twerk challenge will pick the top 25 girls. The top twenty five girls will get flewed out,” as opposed to “flown out.” The incorrect saying quickly gained steam online and after initially being criticized, was picked up by celebs like Rihanna and now, Badu.
As for the “Honey” singer, this isn’t the first time the beauty stripped down and proudly embraced her body online. She danced around her house in a bikini back in 2016:
The mother of three is able to look as good as she does whether covered up or uncovered thanks to the care she puts into her wellness regimen. She’s been “vegan-vegetarian” since about 1997 and plays no games about what she puts into her vessel.
“I do the same thing every day. I get up. Drink a lot of water. Have a wheatgrass shot. Drink some green juice. Eat as healthy as I can,” she’s said in the past. “I’m not trying to win an award for being the best vegetarian, just want to be healthy.”
And be swimsuit ready all-year round, too.
