Two days before the 2016 Soul Train Awards, Badu posted a fun promotional video of her getting psyched for the event. One of her 3.5 million followers on Facebook wrote a comment after watching the video. Al Mosnta wrote: “i’ve always enjoyed her music and eccentric style but that’s a witch hat, and any other celeb who wears it does to service that purpose plain as day. can’t be down with that aspect.” Badu was the first to reply: “I’m a witch.” The 2016 Soul Train Awards will air on Sunday, November 27 at 8pm on BET and VH1.
