Erykah Badu has announced she is making incense that smells like her vagina.
Yep, you read that right. The neo-soul icon is set to launch her own online store, Badu World Market, on the 20th of February.
Erykah Badu announces she will be releasing incense which smells like her vagina, the singer claims “there’s an urban legend that my pussy changes men”.
Badu World Market will include “apothecary goods and traditional music merch”. I guess the vagina incense falls into the category of, erm, less traditional merch.
How does one make such incense, you may ask?
“I took lots of pairs of my panties, cut them up into little pieces and burned them,” said Badu. “Even the ash is part of it.”
As for the reason? Well, Badu says the incense is a tribute to what she describes as her “superpower”.
“There’s an urban legend that my pussy changes men,” she described. “The men that I fall in love with, and fall in love with me, change jobs and lives.”
“The people deserve it!” she said, referring to the incense.
The news comes after Gwyneth Paltrow recently released a candle which she claimed smells like her vagina. The candle, aptly called, This Smells Like My Vagina, was in actuality a joke, and not literally formulated from the aromas of her privates.
Paltrow revealed that she came up with the name whilst trialling psychedelic mushroom tea in Jamaica (read: she was high on mushrooms) for her new Netflix show, the goop lab.
