The famous song "Ms. Jackson" by Outkast was one of the biggest hits of the year 2000. What most people didn't realize at the time was how the song was inspired by Andre 3000's relationship with the mother of his baby mama, Erykah Badu.
In a recent interview with Rap Radar, Badu revealed how she felt about the subject of the song, as well as how her mother felt about it.
"I still had a kind of sore spot, like I don't want to hear that, especially when I heard Big Boi's verse. And then when I heard Andre's verse, I felt very good because his verse was really, really inspiring," Badu explained. "He just told how he felt and I've always respected that, and listened to what he felt and appreciated it."
When asked how her mother reacted to the hit, Badu smiled. "How did my mama feel? Baby, she bought herself a 'Ms. Jackson' license plate. She had the mug, she had the ink pen, she had the headband, everything. That's who loved it."
