Erykah Badu Gifts Rihanna With Her 'Pussy' Perfume At 'Controversial' Savage x Fenty Show

The lingerie company's founder is facing some backlash for featuring non-Black women sporting box braids in the show.

Erykah Badu describes herself as a “unicorn” on Instagram — and she’s certainly cut from a different cloth. In February 2020, the neo-soul singer announced a new perfume called Badu’s Pussy she’d formularized to smell like her vagina.

“I took lots of pairs of my panties, cut them up into little pieces and burned them,” she told 10 Magazine at the time. “Even the ash is part of it.”

Now, Rihanna is evidently the lucky recipient of her own bottle. On Saturday (September 25), Badu shared several Instagram photos of herself with Rihanna who’s holding a Badu Pussy package in front of her face.

“Thanks RiRi,” she wrote in the caption. “I had a ball at your @savagexfenty show. Always cool to spend a lil love time with a fellow visionary Pisces mind. Enjoy the scents. I like your hustle.”

“Loving everything about this show except why are white women in braids???” one person tweeted. “Rihanna?? What’s good!? I need answers.”

Another wrote, “Rihanna really loves putting non black ppl in braids for her fenty whatever show and then call it ‘mad ethnic right now,’” while a third said, “Not Rihanna letting nonblack ppl wear braids for her lil underwear line fashion show.”

Viral meme star-turned-rapper Bhad Bhabie faced similar allegations of cultural appropriation in 2019 for wearing box braids. But true to form, the always defiant teen fired back at her critics.
