Erykah Badu's Soulful Seduction
In true diva fashion, Ms. Badu came to the stage 17 minutes late, throwing off Lollapalooza's otherwise clockwork schedule. But her throng of fans didn't seem to mind. Sporting a towering blonde mohawk and earrings that dangled down her face, it didn't take long for Erykah to have the crowd eating out of her caressing hand. Whether she was tinkering with a drum machine, crooning a bluesy ballad or dropping raw hip-hop funk from the stage, all eyes and ears stayed fixed on the diminutive singer whose smooth, seductive soul chilled out the masses under the blazing summer sun.
