30 Mar Erykah Badu’s New CD Drops As New Video Causes Controversy
The new video “Window Seat” from Erykah Badu is causing some controversy while her new CD comes out today.
In the video above, she falls to the ground nude where JFK was shot. The video was shot guerilla style and in one take.
Some people in her hometown of Dallas are not amused. “I don’t understand how someone who lives here, who is a resident of this city, could do such a thing,”said Lindalyn Adams.
“It’s in poor taste and poor judgment, in my opinion,” says John Crawford.
Badu stands by the video and says it was a protest and is about liberating oneself.
“I tied it in a way that compared the assassination to the character assassination one would go through after showing his or her self completely,” she said. “That’s exactly the action I wanted to display.”
The city of Dallas got involved for a moment stating the video was filmed without proper permits and was upset that children were around when Badu stripped down.
Us? We just think they were upset that her booty was blurred out.
What do you think of the video and it’s message? Do you get the statement or is it in poor taste?-Dr.FB
