Badu

It's pretty much impossible for TV reporters to do man-on-the-street segments without someone mugging for the camera behind them. Few, however, have gotten such an aggressive videobombing as WPIX reporter Mario Diaz got while trying to report on Shia Labeouf's bizarre arrest over the weekend. Making things 100% more surreal was that the person doing it was singer Erykah Badu, who paraded back and fourth behind him and then tried to kiss him. He brushed her off and kept his composure, video of the craziness is in this post.

After initially denying it was her on Twitter, Badu eventually copped to it:

Mario replied with good humor:

Erykah just opened for Dave Chappelle on Thursday (6/26) as part of his 10-night Radio City Music Hall run. Video of Badu's videobombing below...

Perhaps if BV wasn't shilling for Miller High Life, he would have posted this when it was actually news. I guess I"ll have to turn to Pitchfork and Gawker, who both posted when it happened, for my music updates. However, the bright side is that the peeps commenting there actually know how to spell and properly construct sentences. Oh, decisions ...

Oh, sure, she kisses him without consent and it's no big deal. But do it to a female singer and LOOKOUT JACK

11:33 Are you sure, you know how to properly construct sentences, and not overuse, commas?

Somehow Erykah can pull off being a douchey and endearing at once.

No she can't. This is assault, he didn't ask for this.

Batshit crazy.

12:43 is correct: "constructed sentences properly" sounds much better. Kudos to you, 12:43. Meanwhile, 11:47, you are still an amateur and should quit posting your ridiculous chastisements. Good luck in your future endeavors, you trolling dick.

If there's one thing a narcissist really hates it's being ignored.

Erykah was just having some fun, aint nothing more to it. She has dated way hotter guys then Mario Diaz, she's truly not looking for his kiss. Whoever thinks that was an assault obviously doesnt get out much. XOXO
