    Singer Erykah Badu is not performing at the Roots Homecoming Festival in Gambia.

    Below is her statement on the issue, released by her reps, clearing up any confusion about her appearance. Or lack of appearance.

    "Despite recent media reports that indicated otherwise, recording artist Erykah Badu is not booked to participate in the 11th Edition of the Roots Homecoming Festival in Gambia. Event organizers mistakenly believed Ms. Badu to be confirmed due to false representation and claims from a third party unaffiliated with Ms. Badu and her management. All marketing and advertising materials promoting the festival featuring her likeness were done without Ms. Badu's knowledge or consent."

    Have you seen Erykah Badu live? If so, how was she?
