Now I love Erykah Badu but this right here is something I just can’t feel her on and she knows that most people won’t… but she doesn’t care.
The singer launched her defense of the Nazi during an interview with Vulture, saying, “I see good in everybody. I saw something good in Hitler.” For instance, she says, “Hitler was a wonderful painter.”
Vulture gave her a chance to rephrase, but Erykah stuck to her guns, and claimed Hitler’s “terrible childhood” might be the only reason he became a monster. To be clear, Erykah says she’s not an anti-Semite, just a humanist.
