Grammy-winning artist Erykah Badu, known for her unique blend of R&B music, was baffled by the inconsistent results of her coronavirus test. She shared her experience with her social media followers.
Instead of getting one final result, Erykah Badu, whose real name is Erica Abi Wright, got confusing answers from her COVID-19 test results. She took to Twitter to reveal the result’s inconsistencies.
She shared a picture on Twitter of the official results from the doctor. At the bottom of the image, a comment read: "Left nostril positive & right nostril negative."
BADU'S CONFUSING RESULTS
The rapid COVID-19 testing was a required procedure Badu went through before a live stream broadcast for all the band and the crew. On November 14, she took the test three times on the same machine.
The 49-year-old songstress wondered why she received conflicting results. She did not have COVID-19 symptoms, but the results raise a question. She tweeted:
"What an inconvenience to be tested positive then negative 3x after within 24 hours. Same test. We understand that they aren’t 100% accurate but this is strange."
With her experience, the R&B singer shared that the situation should be investigated as she spent money and time she invested in it, only to be given contradictory results.
She also shared that the doctor who administered the rapid-testing procedure only reported the positive test result. The "Other Side of the Game" singer said something was unfair and not right about it.
Badu started the "Quarantine Concert Series" in April, which streamed live from her Dallas home.
THE SAME ORDEAL
Badu, who helped Teyana Taylor deliver her baby last September, is not the only celebrity who experienced unusual test results. SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk also got the same conflicting results.
The 49-year-old business mogul and engineer also took to Twitter on November 13 to express his dismay over the rapid test's perplexing result.
He said that something “extremely bogus” had happened. After he took the COVID-19 test four times on the same machine, the results came back two negatives and another two positives.
COPING THROUGH MUSIC
Meanwhile, Badu has kept herself busy making music while on quarantine. Like many artists, she found ways to cope with the health crisis.
Badu started the "Quarantine Concert Series" in April, which streamed live from her Dallas home. It somehow became her Livestream company as she shares it to viewers for a minimal $1-$3 fee.
Her live stream series offers a homey vibe performance, including singing a song while sitting on her bed. Her successful online show drew over 100,000 viewers.
Since quarantine got Badu exploring the depths of her creativity, she has fully embraced her true self. She took to Instagram to share snaps of herself with a bare face.
Even in simple selfies, the Queen of Neo-Soul managed to get creative. She played around the natural light, which left fans in awe of her raw beauty.
