Video: Erykah Badu Live at the All-Star Game



Between Usher waging war with PETA, Alicia Keys looking like an 8th grader at the zoo and Shakira leaving us with no comment, the performances at the All-Star game were a tragedy. However, there is always a silver lining, and Erykah Badu was it. Ms Loretta Brown showed up lookin like that hot British nanny ya mama never let your daddy hire and set things in order. (Just kidding, we had au pairs!) She performed a cover of “You’ve got a Friend” with just a keyboard player, Suite903 homie Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner (with the stunna shades on!) on upright bass and a trio of singers—once again proving that sometimes less is more. It was probably the best moment of the whole weekend, including that yawntastic Dunk contest, because everyone loves some Badu. Even the groupies get down with Loretta Brown…well…not like that. She’s back and the rest of you folks should get your game up. -- Judnick Mayard
