But people are very sensitive in this climate. I totally understand. I get mad with them. I get it. But not sorry for saying it because it was from a place of love. And sometimes that happens.

I would say read it again. Badu is more than aware that she exists in a bubble. The frustration for some critics is that she seems oblivious to the fact that, for example, expressing empathy with Hitler at a time when neo-Nazi groups endorse the president and antisemitism is on the rise, could be problematic, however well intentioned.
But to Badu, it is simply the way great artists operate. Everything I say is a political statement for some reason in the world.
Badu seems genuinely surprised that anyone would be interested in her politics. I went against something that they had planned for us. Facebook Twitter Pinterest. Although she says that she chiefly tells her anger, love or any other emotion through her music, it is obvious that sometimes the music itself is not enough to convey some thoughts.

And there she has got to choose other means. From her beautiful songs to her reasoned lyrics, from her big hats to her provocative character, she is a different and special soul. And in the finale she is shot to death. The video immediately raised eyebrows but it is a perfect example of how Badu gets critical of multiple issues in one go.
We may assume that Badu does not give a thought to whether nudity or using symbols related to religion damages her career. But the damage has been done.

Her songs are never MTV-type. But when she is going to get naked, she does so without a second thought. And she does it for a reason. You hear soul, funk, hip-hop and pop tunes in her music.
