Erykah Badu performs at Ntelos Wireless Pavilion on Aug. 9, 2015 in Portsmouth, Virginia.

As part of an initiative with Twitter Music, Erykah Badu answered some tweeted fan questions beginning at 1 p.m. ET on Monday (Dec. 7), and as always, Badu had wise advice to give.

Her fans asked her about everything from her creative process and how she became a doula to why she performed at the 46th birthday celebration of Swaziland’s King Mswati III. On a more affectionate note, she offers 30-second meditations on love, getting over breakups and how motherhood has affected her career.

Who would have guessed that Alejandro Jodorowski’s Holy Mountain is one of her favorite films? (Not surprising, though.) Ms. Badu even responded to her own Iggy Azalea comments. She ended the Twitter Q&A session with this question: What does the world need more of? Her response? “More L.O.L and L.O.V.E.”
