Badu announced on social media Wednesday that this weekend she’s doing a performance of sorts, from her bedroom. The details are scarce, but it appears that fans can vote on the song that they want and it only costs $1. She said in the video post:

“Peace and Love. The show must go on. Introducing, the quarantine concert series, live from my bedroom. We’ll be performing right here live, this weekend. Livestream. One dollar to get in. We got to keep movin’ y’all. We got to keep this thing going. We are a community of artists whose survival depends on performing, creating, laughing, living and loving and we still alive. Stay tuned. We’ll let you know the rest of the details very, very soon. Peace and love.”

But while Debbie Allen hosted a free dance class and even Keith Urban offered a free concert from his basement, Badu is charging folks. And … apparently people felt a way about that. They argued that during these times, Erykah shouldn’t be seeking to profit off of people who are all “suffering” in varying degrees. People questioned whether or not the money would be donated, given there are hundreds, if not thousands of charities that could use it right now.

There were also people who were hype (like us).

Badu’s announcement comes on the heels of her wearing a Louis Vuitton hazmat suit to the Texas Film Awards.

    Of course she should charge. That only makes sense. Should she do it for free? No.. That would make her the fool. If it was me I’d charge $100 to y’all. I gotta get my money. Nothing is free. Don’t forget it.
