The Grammy Award-winning artist, 50, took to Twitter Thursday to issue a public apology to the Obamas for being a “terrible guest” after sharing footage from Barack Obama’s exclusive 60th birthday bash in Martha’s Vineyard.
“Mr. And Mrs. Obama , Please forgive me 4 being the ‘terrible guest’ at such a sacred event for your family,” she tweeted. “I was so inconsiderate, Thank you for all your love. What an example of ‘how NOT ‘ to be.”
Badu, who was born Erica Abi Wright, closed her apology with her birth name.
The singer also shot down fan claims that the former first couple made her “take down the video and apologize publicly.” Badu replied, “Naw sis. It’s just right thing.
The former president held a 60th birthday bash in the backyard of his Martha’s Vineyard mansion with Michelle Obama. Although it was scaled back because of concerns about the rapid spread of COVID-19, the event attracted many high-profile guests, including Badu, H.E.R., John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade.
