Erykah Badu Panhandling on New York Streets

This video comes from Badu herself, who shot it on her phone along with a friend. At the beginning of the clip, one woman recognizes Badu and takes an uncomfortably close-up photo of her (but not with her). But for the rest of the 7-minute long video basically nobody recognizes the presence of one of the great R&B singers of a generation.

Badu made $3.60 basically out of pity. F this stupid town. (D.C., for what it’s worth, didn’t far much better.)
