It seems Badu has always had a very chill, down to earth vibe and a free spirit, which she has passed down to daughter Puma. In a video, Badu’s 12-year-old daughter spins upside down surrounded by paints and canvases.

“Birds born in cages think flying is an illness,” Badu captioned the photo, using a quote from French-Chilean film director and renaissance man Alejandro Jodorowsky.

Badu is raising one very cool and carefree daughter.
