Yesterday, New York magazine published an interview with eternal earth mother Erykah Badu that covered a wide range of topics, including her identification with the term empath and her belief that true empathy knows no bounds. To make this point, she used Hitler as an example, saying that he had "a terrible childhood." When pressed on that point, Badu added, "That means that when I'm looking at my daughter, Mars, I could imagine her being in someone else's home and being treated so poorly, and what that could spawn. I see things like that. I guess it's just the Pisces in me."

The internet lit up in fury over these comments, and today Badu took to Twitter to explain herself a bit further, essentially putting the blame on the media for sensationalizing headlines and encouraging click bait, and encouraged people to read the full interview before making a judgment:
