Desperate Nobody Erykah Badu Strips In Public For Video
"The Dallas singer`s (Erykah Badu) new video, for her single `Window Seat,` features her disrobing in Dealey Plaza, then falling to the ground, nude, as if she`d been shot in the head." Dallas Morning News
My reaction: Yawn!
Here we go again, another female pop singer resorting to images of sex and violence to sell albums. If it weren`t for Badu`s disrobing in public to film a video, nobody would be talking about her.
More than a few music critics are cowardly scum, and I bet they will praise Badu for her "avant garde and cutting edge video."
The reality is that Badu`s publicity stunt is born out of desperation, and there is no way in hell I will buy her album.
Why doesn`t Angelina Jolie disrobe in public, why does it always have to be an ugly woman? Don`t send me any nasty emails, but stripping in public, Badu is inviting people to comment on her looks.
Enough about this Badu non-entity, let me find a more worthwhile subject to write about.
