Old school artist Stephanie Mills has a word of advice for Brian McKnight and his raunchy sex songs and Erykah Badu showing up naked more often than not in her videos...
Stephanine tells The Huffington Post,
“I just don’t think you have to go that far to get attention, and I think sometimes the older artists—because he [Brian McKnight] is older now—the older artists are so starved for attention that they’ll just about do anything,”
“I think it took away from all of the classiness and the great stuff that he has done before,”
“When Erykah Badu took off all her clothes, I was like, ‘It’s just so unnecessary to do that!’ I love Erykah Badu, but I think sometimes they want to do the shock value thing, but I don’t think it always works for Black artists the way that it works for White artists.”
