Erykah Badu ‘OK’ With Infidelity, Claims Men Need To Chase

Cheating might be disappointing but it’s not a deal breaker for “Window Seat” singer Erykah Badu ! In a recent interview, Badu blatantly excuses men who cheat, claiming they have a need to “chase”…. “No. Infidelity is not a deal-breaker for me. We’re all born sexual beings,” Badu says after admitting that she’s had a boyfriend constantly since the age of five. “I myself am not someone with a very high libido. I don’t require sex for happiness – I need companionship. I need a partner I can depend on, that I can love and grow with. But I do understand the nature of these men I’ve been with, and men in general. They have a need to chase.” While Badu has had her share of relationships, including time with Outkast’s Andre 3000 and Common, she has an understanding with each of the men she’s dated… “I’m having to recondition my brain, ’cos the first thing I got was a doll named Barbie and she had Ken and that’s how it was supposed to be. You’re conditioned to think that way, and when it doesn’t happen you feel you’re a failure. What we have in common, me and the brothers I’ve known, is that we are all trying to evolve,” she tells the UK’s Telegraph. “We talk a lot about things that men want. Because I want them to be happy and the more I see how the male of the species behaves, the more I understand, and the less I blame him.” Is she serious ?….. share your thoughts below in comments …
