Erykah Badu Tries to Kiss Reporter During News Broadcast [VIDEO]

Subscribe to TheBoombox on

Erykah Badu has long been known as the Queen of Neo-Soul. While that title still stays, a quick glance at her Twitter shows she’s a bit of an eccentric.

Badu’s quirky side made another appearance during a news broadcast on Friday (June 27). PIX 11’s Mario Diaz was reporting on actor Shia LaBeouf’s arrest earlier in the week when Badu, who was in town to perform at Dave Chappelle’s Radio City comedy show, interrupted his report with an obscene hand gesture and an attempted kiss.

Diaz didn’t register that this was Badu at the time and brushed her off as if she was a crazy woman. Badu admitted on Twitter that it was indeed her and apologized, and Diaz accepted her apology by using a Prince lyric.
