Erykah Badu Is A Psychic Who Offers Tea Made Of Weed, Peyote, And Crack In 'What Men Want' Trailer
Badu stars alongside Taraji P. Henson in the forthcoming comedy.
Erykah Badu has acted here in there in the film world, with her last role being Turquoise in 2016’s The Land. Now, Badu is making her return to acting as a psychic whose tea apparently grants women with the ability to read men’s minds.
In the recently-released trailer for What Men Want, Taraji P. Henson portrays a sports agent trying to break the glass ceiling as she loses a coveted position to a male co-worker. In trying to do that, a friend recommends she go see a psychic who might be able to help, with that psychic being the one and only Badu.
“I can connect you help with men. Let’s have some tea,” Badu says to Henson. “This smells like dirt,” Henson replies, to which Baud hilariously responds “Oh, that’s just jasmine tea. If you don’t count the weed, the peyote, and the crack.” After consuming the tea Henson slowly begins to realize she can read men’s minds and, well…just watch the rest of the trailer to see what else happens.
What Men Want is a gender-flipped take on the 2000 Mel Gibson movie What Women Want. Aside from Badu and Henson, the film features Tracy Morgan and Pete Davidson. It comes out in January 2019.
