The Life As Shay Report:
This just in, Erykah Badu is the new face of Givenchy’s Spring 2014 campaign. The African-Asian fusion collection can be expected to set a new wave of fashion trends, but nabbing Ms. Badu for the gig was brilliant.
The image above says alot…a natural, beautiful African-American woman standing strong in all of her glory (is what some may see). I myself, I see the importance of drinking lots of water. Erykah looks stunning, youthful and fresh–> this is an age ambiguous photo. Timeless. (Can I look like this in my 40s-Please??)
 Erykah Badu, I love her sound and her authenticity as person is uncanny. I remember being memorized by her sound as a youngster studying every word of her 1997 album, Baduizm.
I saw this image and instantly heard…Rimshot.
THROWBACK!
