Erykah Badu Makes Some Kind of Statement at Marquee Theatre

Erykah Badu may not have canceled her show last night at Marquee Theatre because of any Arizona immigration laws, but the funky soul singer still managed to make some sort of statement, by wearing a T-shirt that read, "I am an immigrant." She's actually from Dallas, but whatevs. The crowd at the show still showed mad respect for the artist, who played a massive 30-minute encore for her fans. Here's what they had to say about the show. (And read Up on the Sun's take here.)
