Thought to Ponder
Courtesy of Ms. Erykah Badu

I don't have any good pics of her at the concert last night in BK so I am posting this one. She was amazing. This was my 3rd time seeing her and it was the best show hands down.

"I think a lot of people have lost respect for the individual, you know, the individual, the person who doesn't conform."
-Erykah Badu

Here are a couple pics of me and the peeps at the show

Karrie B. has officially become like my new lil sis. I was running a little late so she saved seats for me and my roomie

Then me and my friends go to leave the concert and they are like Eb someone is calling your name...

and guess who it was... Liryc and Ms. Knowitall
I love NYC bloggers... gotta give a shout to The F*&K it List because she was out there too but couldn't find parking so turned around and went home. Another shout goes to Dollface who came out but the line was too long so she bounced. Next week get there early ladies. Jill Scott so you know its going to be bananaz.

All in all it was a great night in BK!

I freakin' love FREE summer concerts in NYC!!!

THE PRINCESS "CC" August 5, 2008 at 7:19 AM

You look so pretty, dress is hot.

And Badu said it best with that quote...people will confirm most quickly for couple of bucks though.

Lina August 5, 2008 at 8:29 AM

Dress is beautiful and comfortable looking.

KB is a gem.

Well, gotdamn, I want a free concert.

And I love that quote by e. Badu.

E2Deep August 5, 2008 at 8:34 AM

Looks like you had a Great time!!!! I wish I could've been there.

She W0rd Hustlez August 5, 2008 at 9:25 AM

Looks like you had a great time as usual mama. I haven't been to free concert in so long girl! So I know it was a treat and with good music on top of that!

12kyle August 5, 2008 at 10:03 AM

K. August 5, 2008 at 10:05 AM

UnKnownDiva August 5, 2008 at 10:11 AM

erykah is phenomenal!! i saw her at radio city a couple months ago n didn't want the show to end. i just heard about the jill scott concert. i'm trying to get to bk for that one.
btw...that dress is very pretty.

HydePark_Cutie August 5, 2008 at 10:18 AM

Hey, thanks for letting me know about the concert. I did make it over to Brooklyn and was able to see Badu. I think watching the crowd was just as interesting as watching the concert (I'm a serial people watcher). But it was hot, met some cool people, heard some hot music, overall had a good time. Hope u have a blessed day.

Sha Boogie August 5, 2008 at 10:25 AM

numba 1, take off the dress and mail it to meantown, stat! it is fireee!

E. badu is my forever. dope.dope.dope.

RealHustla August 5, 2008 at 10:49 AM

You looked fierce! as usual. Those little fold up chairs did not do you justice. Did you tell them Eb was coming? God, when will they get a clue?

The Jaded NYer August 5, 2008 at 10:58 AM

I heard you were up in there... wasn't she great? I was going to leave after a couple of songs because I was just not feeling well, but she put out a cool vibe. I had to stay...

we need to coordinate for Jilly, because I REFUSE to miss out!

Eb the Celeb August 5, 2008 at 10:59 AM

@ hey! - Eb the Celeb is my full

@ E - I love you soooooooo much!

@kyle - I went to a free concert in ATL before. Last year on 4th of july... there was this huge carnival downtown and Ruben Studdard performed... they should definitely be doing more with that space... it was great

@k.- Central park concerts are free on sunday afternoons... not sure what the line-up is for the rest of the summer though

@hydepark - glad you were able to make it... there were some characters out there... did you see that lady that thought she was badu with the huge kinky afro wig on... that was too funny... you have a blessed rest of the week as well

@realhustla - LOL, I may look like a diva but I truly am not... I had my blanket all with me just in case I had to sit on the grass to watch Erykah for

@everybody - thx for the love on the dress... it made me feel like a queen! May have to change my alias to Queen Eb. j/k

Eb the Celeb August 5, 2008 at 10:59 AM

@Jaded... we definitely have to coordinate for Jilly... I'll be in touch!

Anonymous August 5, 2008 at 11:04 AM

Ya'll were killing it in them dresses! Too cute! And you and KB's pic is the hotness!

Chris August 5, 2008 at 11:12 AM

so much fun to be had in NYC...and I've never been. Don't judge me. And Miss Badu is right....people fear what's different from the norm, and of course fear begins disrespect, name-calling, negative attitudes and all kinda stuff like that there.

MsKnowitAll August 5, 2008 at 11:17 AM

I had a blast out in BK last night! Ms. Badu always comes with the real. I have to see her every time she comes to NY.

It was great that we finally got to meet - actually Liryc found you and that was a miracle with the thousands of folks out there.

Hope to see you next week for Jill Scott!

Anonymous August 5, 2008 at 11:19 AM

Eb... that dress is FIRE! Work it!!!!! U sure ur not a fashion stylist on the low? LOL.

Justine Samantha August 5, 2008 at 11:36 AM

i'd love to go to the one of these concerts. jill scott is love <3

let me know addresses if you don't mind.

i love your blog!

OG, The Original Glamazon August 5, 2008 at 11:44 AM

Badu is the truth and I feel her oh so much since New Amerykah dropped, you know where she is in her life right now. I guess its that mid thirties swagger a woman gets when she just knows who she is and NOBODY can take her shine away.

I am so jealous cause I KNOW she was DA TRUTH!

Your dress was FIYAH too loves it!


laughing808 August 5, 2008 at 11:45 AM

That dress is really nice.....

Super Dave Van Buren August 5, 2008 at 11:53 AM

Damn can we get a free concert in DC? all we got is free museums.

Ms. Lovely August 5, 2008 at 11:54 AM

Eb that dress is so ca-yute! I want to see Erykah oh so bad :(

MP August 5, 2008 at 12:41 PM

YOUR DRESS!!!!!!!! SO PRETTY IT MAKES ME WANT TO CRY. I'm also a little hormonal right now but that doesn't take fire from your dress!

Anonymous August 5, 2008 at 12:52 PM

Cheers to Karrie B. for saving you seats.

TravelDiva August 5, 2008 at 1:11 PM

LadyLee August 6, 2008 at 7:51 AM

That's a GREAT dress!

I saw Erykah back when the first album was out, way back in 1998! She and Sleepy Brown gave a show at Georgia State. One of the best concerts I've ever been to. Now you got me wanting to go again!

Miss B August 6, 2008 at 10:06 AM

Love the dress, the Badu, and the KB

FREEDOM August 7, 2008 at 1:02 AM

That is a really cute dress and accessories. you're going have to event tag all your hot outfits and put up for your children in chest and tell em "This what yA momma wore to the Erykah Badu, Alicia Keys, Jill scott...on and on

Or you could do like Kamora Lee and puts take pictures of your outfits and

that would make a kool scrape book. just food for thought.


kayellejaye August 7, 2008 at 2:36 PM

You look HOT Mama! You were working that dress.

MysTery August 7, 2008 at 8:19 PM
