If we had a body that lends itself to a bikini like Erykah Badu, we probably couldn't get enough sun either!
The Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter was spotted in Miami hitting the beach! She had her trademark eclectic style on full display — she had a big hat and a Native American style cardigan that she wore over a TINY black bikini! That sounds pretty Erykah to us! LOLz!
We're not huge fans of tattoos around here, though we're willing to make exceptions! Erykah's henna tattoos are pretty badass!
Hope you got enough relaxation, Erykah!

Janelle Monáe's fab collab with .fun on We Are Young made her the queen of our heart, but now her royal spot in our souls is OFFICIAL!
She joined up with the totally talented Erykah Badu on their new cut and the song is friggin' sweet!!
Ch-ch-check out the intensely funky Q.U.E.E.N. for yourself (above)!
Critics say the lyrics of her new song may explicitly reference Janelle's sexuality, but she neither confirms nor denies those reports, LOLz!!
On Twitter, she admitted

Can’t our ladiez of hip hop just get along?
While we might’ve witnessed Nicki Minaj paying homage to Foxy Brown and bringing her on stage two weeks ago, it seems Mz. Minaj was the butt of Erykah Badu’s recent set!
Or so that’s how it seemed!
Check out the vid (above) of Erykah switching up Nicki’s Beez In The Trap, during Brooklyn’s Afro Punk Festival this past weekend!
Dayum, that takes a lot of nerve to diss one of NYC’s own at a festival in the city!
However, take some deep breaths, Barbz!
Erykah later tweeted:

There hasn't been much news about Ke$ha's sophomore album, Spandex on the Distant Horizon, for quite some time, but hopefully this will serve a precursor to some new material!
The singer teamed up with The Flaming Lips and Biz Markie for a new track, called 2012 (You Must Be Upgraded), which will be featured on the experimental rock band's latest album, The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends, which is being exclusively released today in honor of Record Store Day, and also features tracks from Chris Martin, Erykah Badu, and Bon Iver (above)!
We never know what to expect from Ke$ha when it comes to her sound, but this is certainly unlike anything from her before!
What do U think?? Are U feeling the latest from her??

Peter Facinelli is single and… ready to mingle??
Well… he might be mingling now that he's divorcing Jennie Garth, but not with the ladehs!
Because when onlookers saw him pAArty it up at a Highline Studios party in NYC, he was mainly hangin' around the dudes.
We hear he enjoyed most of his time conversing with his man friends on a VIP sofa.
He did, however, LOVE watching Erykha Badu perform, as he was seen dancing and smiling to her muzak.
