Well, if you look at all of the cultures in America, this is a great opportunity for us to really get acquainted with the rest of the world. America is the only place you can do that, but we don’t have sense enough to take advantage of that. Erykah Badu Every day, in every way, I am getting better and better. I love to put on diamonds and beautiful evening gowns and make my girl-friends upset. I always liked parties. You meet people; you can have fun. The women’s movement hasn’t changed my sex life. It wouldn’t dare. Conrad Hilton was very generous to me in the divorce settlement. He gave me 5000 Gideon Bibles. I know nothing about sex, because I was always married. We were both in love with him. I fell out of love with him, but he didn’t. I pay all my own bills… I want to choose the man. I do not permit men to choose me. To a smart girl men are no problem – they’re the answer.
