But, more importantly, Badu brought her sense of humor. During the hour-long segment the R&B icon repeatedly interrupted questions and discussions to tell DJ Akademiks that he reminded her of someone. As the show went on, she provided more context: "The name Thomas keeps coming to me," and "It makes me want to eat cereal." Finally, she came out with it — DJ Akademiks looks like Jerry, the mouse, from Tom and Jerry. Thank you, Ms. Badu.
