    Erykah Badu in conversation about movies and music.

    Ms Badu has selected the little-seen Ricky Gervais comedy, The Invention of Lying. Starring Gervais, Jennifer Garner, Jonah Hill, Rob Lowe and Tina Fey, this comedy is set in a world where no one has ever lied, until a writer seizes the opportunity for personal gain.
