Rock Star

Pregnant with her third child, Mars Merkaba Thedford, in 2009 and glowing, the singer graciously accepted her Rock Star Award at the 3rd Annual Black Girls Rock!, saying that being on stage is “therapy for me.” Another honoree, Paralympic athlete April Holmes, confessed that Badu’s "Bag Lady" inspired her during the recovery of her leg amputation from a 2001 train accident. (Photo: Astrid Stawiarz/Getty Images)
