Erykah Badu Crashes NYC Newscast

Badu makes ring with thumb, index finger, then points through it. Anyone know what this confusing gesture means?

Hat tip to Central Track for bringing me (and by extension you) this video of Erykah Badu jacking around with a guy doing a standup in New York City. Check out both the Vine and the YouTube versions. Girl was determined to get some play.

    And I thought people only did this for 5 seconds of fame. Shame on Erykah. Few things annoy me more than this kind of bs.

    So sad and desperate for the wrong attention. So unnecessary b/c her concerts are really great!

    @Brandon Snook, I can’t share your “shame” at Erykah’s supposed “bs.” After all, a celebrity can unexpectedly be confronted by some so-called TV reporter with a camera while merely being on the street, or window shopping. Happens all the time. There’s no rule against it. I was unaware, however, that the corollary is that the celebrity isn’t allowed to unexpectedly confront the so-called TV reporter. Seems rather one-sided to me.

    In this particular case, the guy was doing a live report on fallen actor Shia LaBeouf’s recent arrest. I think we should save our shame for things that are actually shameful.
