(Newser) – A fan's random decision to ask singer Erykah Badu for a palm reading has led to a pretty awesome string of tweets, Time reports. The fan made the request on Twitter Monday, Badu in turn requested a picture of the fan's palm, and more palm pictures and requests for readings followed from there. Some of Badu's best readings:

  • "I'm feeling.. There's someone very close to you . Name starts with a G . Rhymes with radish ."
  • "Hmm. I see a baby in your future if you don't take them birth control pills."
  • "You are in need of a nap.. I see a cool side of a strange pillow in your future."

  • "According to my calculations you are dead," she tweeted in response to a picture of an apparently fake hand.
  • "I see many children in your future in a weird form today..Like 123 or 124.. I see Netflix and I see..Is that chill?"
  • "You ARE the father."
  • "Ahh . I see it so clear. You will be moving to another location in the house . Very soon."
  • The most recent reading, posted Wednesday in response to a picture of a dog's paw: "I'm getting a strong sense that you are a real bitch."
Detroit's abandoned rape kits are getting an assist from Badu. (Read more Erykah Badu stories.)
