In case you haven’t noticed, Erykah Badu has been making a lot more noise lately, surrounding the release of her new mixtape But You Caint Use My Phone, which has been received well by fans and peers alike. Today, she hosted a Q&A via Twitter, answering some of her fans more burning questions (or not, as was the case when she was asked about the inspiration behind her and André 3000’s collab). As is generally showcased on her timeline, and IRL at the Soul Train Awards, Erykah’s Baduizms are often served with a lot of sass and sometimes a little bit of shade. Compared to the barrage of questions she must get on the daily, Badu answered a handful of queries but had some definite gems to impart on her loyal following. We chose a few of our favourites below—and if you aren’t already following her on Twitter, you definitely should.

01. "Hip-hop will take the direction of the people"

02. "Love is the opposite of fear"

03. "Beyoncé is one of the hardest working human beings I have ever seen"

04. "The world needs more LOL and L-O-V-E"
