Singer-Songwriter Erykah Badu Says She ‘Saw Something Good’ In Adolf Hitler



I went to see her in concert at Radio City a few years back.  And she didn't appear to do her set for 2 1/2 hours. 
My wife and I only stayed for a couple of songs before we got up and left.  I haven't had anything good to say about her since. 


Daily Caller reports Erykah Badu raised some eyebrows in an interview with Vulture after she seemingly expressed empathy for Adolf Hitler after being asked about accusations that she’s anti-Semitic.

The wide-ranging interview covered a broad number of topics but took a bizarre turn after she was asked about the criticism she faced following 2008 trip to Israel where she says she followed Nation of Islam leader and anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.

“I’m not an anti-Semitic person. I (didn’t) even know what anti-Semitic was before I was called it. I’m a humanist. I see good in everybody. I saw something good in Hitler,” Badu said randomly as the Nazi leader had not been previously mentioned in the interview.

“Come again?” the interview asked back.
