Why don't you idiots try to get Erykah's side before you attack her. And how are the women hoes when there are just naked in a tub. The hate in the comment section against women is really alarming.

This picture would have been alot more interesting to look at erykah were in a lake of say, black or grey water: or fill the tub with black or grey water.still a nice picture though.

Wait, is this video for real, and are we suppose to take that shit seriously?! I just watched it and feel as though I lost some of my damn brain cells. Badu and her sister need their asses beat beyond recognition...

Even if you believe that Wayne lied to her Erykah agreed to the basic concept of the shoot. You can describe what you see in your head to anyone but no 2 people will see it the same way if they tried to materialize it. Would it be fair if after Wayne told her the concept, she agreed, then he spent tons of money on the shoot but after its done she's changed her mind. That's not cool either. She admitted that Wayne spent money on the shoot. The only person in control of Erykah body is her and if she was at all worried about what the end result would be she should refused. When he suggested concepts you didn't agree with why would you continue and bring family in it. She needs to look within; she's not new to the biz she should know better.

all of this. i said yesterday just like ciara(naked vibe shoot,go girl song) and mary j blige(chicken commercial), erykah put out crap and promoted it, then backtracked when she got backlash from the public.

@10:57 - I see your point but to call them hoes because they are in a bathtub nude is ridiculous. it is very mysognistic. Hoes are on the street having sex for money. These two are nude for a music video.

I follow her and to be hones I don't know where here anger toward the Flaming Lips is coming from. She didn't seem too angry when it first appeared. My only issue is the blatant disrespect of women in the comment section by alot of posters. It is very disturbing.

TruthBeTold said...

DAYUM! The video has me questioning Erykahs psycho state !

What women would go into a tub of carn starch that look like semen and let them film as she opens her mouth and ;ets the "semen" slide down her chin

just plain NASTY ! HOw the hell was this artistic?!

Hoes covered in blood and cum EW!

TruthBeTold said...

By the way only serial rapists and killers would get off seeing cum and blood ...sick fucks!

ive deleted all her music from my library.so sick of her attention whoring,getting naked for money.

@11:37 I'm currently raising 2 daughters and I tell them taking ur clothes off in front of strangers for money/publicity/ fame/all the above aren't acceptable. If you want to be respected respect urself! If you put urself out there any kind of way don't think people owe it to you to assume you are just an artist. Erykah has had many passes because she has always tried to come off as an artist just being controversial, but many of her life choices scream HOE in the traditional sense of the word...

Anonymous said...

Ok so wait, that was REAL blood and cum? Oh my, the devil makes you do so many things when you don't stand beside God.

mure_noire said...

listening to the words in the song, the glitter represents a man and a virginal woman exploring their intimate side and climaxing. The blood represents the virginal woman losing her virginity, and the white liquidy substance represents the man exploding his long awaiting full load of semen.

What I don't get is on twitter she told im 'just saw the video beautiful,you're a visionary' so how can she be mad now??

!@:10 - I'm going to have to disagree with you on the hoe comment. I don't think sitting in a tub of water is being a hoe. Hoes spread their legs and get paid for having sex. I think this country has issues with the female body and nudity. Do I think what she and her sister did is art? No, but I don't think her or her sister's behavior should be called hoeish. It doesn't make any sense to me. All I am talking about is the video and the negative comments by the posters on this site when it comes to women. It is extremely negative and disturbing. Women are frequently called everything but a child of God. I know it is a gossip blog but it bothers me since I am a woman.

And to think her their children will see this hoe shit one day
This says alot about badu's true character and why in spite of her physical beauty and talent she can't keep a man to save her life
She's loose, easy and has been exposed as a fraud and a sellout for fame and money
Smh

because the public didn't receive it like she thought they would, she is getting mad backlash so to cover her ass shes going on about him releasing a rough edit,breaking a contract,etc and a whole bunch of lies. just like what mary j blige did. notice to this date we still havent been presented with the 'final version' of marys commercial.

Video aside...the song is Hawtt! The club remix should be bannanas!!!

C'mon, let's open our eyes here. We are all being PLAYED! This is manufactured beef that was stirred up to get people to watch the video. Publicity 101. I used to be a Badu fan. Fuck her. She's just as fake as the rest of them. And to the person who's upset that she's being called a ho...Badu is a ho! She was so uncomfortable with the concept yet she took off her clothes and let them profit from her nakedness while she too profited from it...And then she called up her sister to join too. Sounds like ho shit to me. She just got f*cked sideways thats all.

Prince was naked in a tub, who really gives a shit about two people who are richer that me arguing over some similes and metaphors? Damn, just make fuckin music.

@11:37

Im the person you were responding to. I havnt called her a ho. I've been a supporter of hers over the years and have bought her music. Im disappointed in her actions not because of the content but the fact that she let herself get in that situation. She's come across as someone who's had control of her career and creativity so it hard for me to understand how she let this happen.

WHY DIDNT THE WHITE GUYS USE A WHITE WOMAN?

Anonymous said...

Blood and semen even if it was fake was gross, vile and made me sick. I was shocked Badu would do this and then get her sister involved was a bit much. The vid was sick, but I didn't feel right commenting until I saw it for myself. Even though art is subjective....there are a lot of other things she could've done that would have been artistic, without doing some lady gaga bullshit. She turned a classic Roberta Flack love song into blood, glitter & semen on butt-nekkidness. Epic fail on every level. No shade to those that liked it...I didn't.

What Badu and her sister did was a ritual. Badu is an occult witch and I believe she participates in sex orgies/rituals. Her connection to Jay E and this whole Rothchild fiasco is a lot more deep than it seems. Remember, Jay E is from the heart of voo-doo land New Orleans. I think both she and Jay E are taking this black magic to the ultimate highest level. I can't wait to see how all this unfolds.

Badu was on Wendy Williams a while back talking about being in a cult with Dead Prez and making outlandish statements regarding sex orgies and black magic. It was so far-fetched that everyone dismissed it as sarcasm and a joke at Wendy's expense. Looking back, I'm wondering if maybe Badu was telling the truth.

*Sigh*

All this was part of a plan, but Erykah didn't realize it.

White folks were steaming mad after that 'Window Seat' video - How DARE a Black woman walk down the street in broad daylight, proud of her body? And, she associated it with their revered JFK? Aww, fuck no. This bitch has to pay.

They vowed to make her feel ashamed of her body again.... that beautiful black body with that big, black ASS they so coveted.

And so here we are. She was empowered by her nudity after 'Window Seat'; now she feels nothing but victimization and disrespect associated with her nudity due to the Flaming Lips video.

ERYKAH.

Wake up and see the big picture. They got you back. What is worse, they got you to participate in their revenge WILLINGLY. Not only that, they got you to sacrifice your own sister as well. How could you 'not be there' when she was filming her scenes? You are her protector! Better yet, why would you even include her?

Honey, some rich white men paid TOP DOLLAR for the raw footage of the naked bodies of you and your sister..... They'd been lusting after you since 'Window Seat'.... But they couldn't just come out and RAPE you like in slavery days.... So they got some of their friends to make a nice video for them.... Best believe you and your sister are on full display when they have their little 'parties'....

I love you, sis. As Black women, we have to take so much more into consideration when we decide to do things. It is not fair. But it is the truth.

And this is exactly why she shouldn't have fooled with those white folks. Now she's the one who looks like the damn fool.

@10:42 AM ...saw the video...no defending that fuckery...the song is as bad as the video...she and her sister can do better...

Strawberries said...

He still didn't say why he didn't get final approval from Erykah tho. His response did just what it was suppose to do, deflect from the real question.

First Lauryn now this. They successfully got our black men away from us. Now the white man is coming to get us. Get ready, black women.

Erica was not tricked...still I ask why didn't she/her sister wear a nude panty???? showing her vagina lips is scandalous!I don't believe she is a victim here,the minute she took off her panties,she should have known something wasn't right....She is not new at this,take responsibility for your actions,Erica!

That was fake semen and blood...it looked real..

Looks to me in the whole arrangement Erykah's sister was the one with the short end of the stick. I'm wondering if they asked Erykah if she'd do the semen and blood with nudes and she said no but still really wanted to work with the Flamming Lips so she called up her sister to do it for her. How do you take a bath in semen and not think that maybe this is a bad idea...??????

Jazz said...

I don't know what would make Ms. Badu think putting her paraphernalia on full display for anybody but her lover would be a good idea.

Blood. Semen. Blood AND semen. C'mon!

Still loves me some Erykah but dang, boo. Use your pretty head sometimes.

Wow blaming white people for what a black person chose to do typical . No longer a fan.

Anonymous said...

I thought it was kind of cool--messy and unnecessarily graphic--but different enough to be cool. I'm also sure they were all high as fuck when they filmed it. When she came down and sobered up is when all this fuckery started. It's also serving to drum up buzz for the vid and collabo since it's clear this won't be airing on VH1 anytime soon.

Blood and Semen?

I get the impression that Erykah knew what was going on. She's not new to the business. Ypu can blame the Flaming Lips all you want to,but in the end we all have to take responsibility for our actions. I think it's like another poster said,Erykah probably was asked to do the blood/semen/nudity scenes and said no,but allowed her sister to do the graphic stuff. So in a way,she pimped her sister.
Truthfully,I thought it was a very weird,yet erotic video.Next time,just stick to making good music.

Anonymous said...

Erykah has been in the business for too long to be manipulated into doing anything she doesn't want to do. She was trying so hard to come across as edgy and artistic that she pushed the envelope and got a papercut! When she did the Window seat video I have been sideeyeing her. Not because of the nudity but because of her disregard of other peoples beliefs.Some people don't wish to have their children exposed to nudity. She could of done the same video at night and it wouldn't have lost the meaning and she wouldn't have risked exposing herself to children. But I am starting to have the sneaky suspicion that she is a pervert. She enjoys being degraded in sexually inappropriate ways.

All yall (Women) and I highlight women need to stop trying to defend her on this matter. Women don't get in a tub full of sperm and let it drip into their mouths, with a grin on they face. That's hoe-ish and you know it is. Having a vagina doesn't make you a woman or a hoe, just like dick and balls dont make you a man. Your actions make you who you are and the females in the video were acting hoe-ish. So stop acting like she was just chillin in the tub singing. They got nasty ass porn out depicting the same nasty hoe shit and yall aint defendin that .... or are you.
