Erykah Badu on Creative Process

"Music is what brings it out of me. I've never written lyrics without music — that would be poetry.

It's the music first, then I hum in a rhythmic, syncopated way. The next part is listening to it and decoding what I'm saying.

It's almost like a lump of clay and carving away at it, revealing what's under it."
  Erykah Badu on Lady Gaga, Mary J. Blige, and Being a Twitter Goddess -- Vulture
