Erykah Badu Strips Naked Where JFK Was Assassinated In New Music Video

Erykah Badu Strips Where JFK Was KilledOK folks, this is not an April Fool’s Joke. I have observed that disinfo.com readers (especially those who leave comments) enjoy the intersection of conspiracy and pop culture, however, it looks like Erykah Badu is taking it to a whole new level.

What would Crossfire author and JFK conspiracy expert Jim Marrs say? (Answer: He’s fine with it.)

(Below is a news report, not the actual video itself.)

    I have been waiting twenty years for Erykah Badu to do something worthwhile.

  • nick__nick

    ART.

  • alt

    Sure, let the media distract us with outrage over an artist appearing naked in a video, the “public quick to assasinate what they don't understand” while the Haliburton army of Dick Cheney has invaded and contaminated a middle eastern country, secures oil and gas and awards contract to itself. What should we be really outraged about?

  • Zoser23

    I'm outraged at the censorship! It's not too often you get a sexy celeb doing some worthwhile performance art.

  • E.B. Wolf

    Speaking of children, I think a group of grade-school actors could have done a better job of feigned moral outrage than the CBS couch-brigade did.

    Do you think that the “news reporters” are even SLIGHTLY aware they have completely proven Badu's point?

  • UrBast

    The spin they put on this for my local news in Columbus, Ohio was that the mother of a young girl who happened to be in the video was offended. Is the girl a lesbian? I just found that odd. It's a Fox affiliate, which makes more sense.

  • nemoide

    I've never heard of Erykah “Yes, That's How I Spell My First Name” Badu but she gets MY stamp of approval.

  • max

    Looks like a clear case of wardrobe malfunction to me.

    people need to chill with the whole hating on nudity thing. It's an old way of thinking and people need to let that die already.

  • voxmagi

    I think I can safely say that this might very well be the only thing Erykah (Can't spell my own effin name) Badu has ever done that I HAVE approved of without reservation. I despise pop, especially derivative R&B that diminishes the respect that genre once deserved, but after watching the talking head gasbags trot out their disapproval (for the CHILDREN!!!! the poor precious CHILDREN!!!), I want to applaud her just on principle.

  • damg

    im sorry to be so juvenile, but did anyone else see the esteemed member of the public (aka Elliot Smith's warmed-up corpse) that began her statement with “I was very offended” and lol?

  • RONIN

    I love watching these fuckin' media heads get all bothered. They're little sensitivities are so easily affected by the most irrelevant of things.

    And fuck the children. I hope they were traumatized.

  • Gregory

    Wow. How does bombing all those brown people in Afghanistan and Iraq NOT traumatize our children? What is also very concerning is the “don't foist your art on us.” Well, she doesn't have to make the point of the video at all, the commentators in the media are doing that just fine. We have many closed minds out there, people totally buying into their ideologies and trapped in their reality tunnels and nothing is able to penetrate. This art piece was a complete success, but a lot of people in the media and by association a lot of the public are just too dim and sheepified to notice.

    What is also depressing is the whole “how will this affect the children?” well, they might have a chance while they're still developing to see something that hasn't been sterilized by their parents and community first, that how it might affect them. A great deal of the problems in the western world is due to we make sex and language dirty in order to “protect” them from it, when they should be understanding these things, not trying to reserve it for older people. They become able to have sex and babies but artificially say they can't until they reach some arbitrary point in their lives. Politicians use them as an excuse to ban marijuana and salvia and etc so that the populace won't have something that can alter and modify their perceptions because we don't want them to think for themselves and maybe have their “reality” interfered with.

    We should make it required that all kids at age 10 read The Catcher in the Rye (and have it explained to them, just to make sure), watch Behind the Green Door and have a swig of Jack Daniels while George Carlin's Seven Dirty Words performance plays in their iPODs.

    Then what we'll do it expose them to the true history of Christianity, teach them that the we humans have had advanced civilizations for many thousands of years and the only reason their folks believe in Jesus is because their ancestors were forced to (especially if they are black or central/south american) and most of all, they will not be allowed to have a TV in their room until they successfully stalk and kill a Fox News pundit, as a rite of passage.

      those brown people are our enemy, dumbass.

      • Creaknine

        you are the enemy

  • Jack

    My favorite part is that she is trying to combat groupthink, and then the three hosts of the show are completely unable to express an individual opinion because of how they are interacting between themselves, and then moreso because they are being told what to do by the FCC and their bosses and whoever. She's found a way to create an offset black hole of stupid.

  • 5by5

    Idiot, ALL art is “foisted upon” others. The entire point of it is to challenge conventional perceptions.

    Or as Ben Shahn would say, “All art is based on non-confirmity.”

    Or Bill Maher, “Hollywood isn't your cesspool America, it's your mirror.”

    Or Beverly Sills, “A primary function of art and thought is to liberate the individual from the tyranny of his culture in the environmental sense and to permit him to stand beyond it in an autonomy of perception and judgment.”

    These half-wits get their panties in a bunch over this, but not over the fact that she's standing at the sight of what amounts to a 50 year old unsolved murder that gutted the hope & innocence of the nation. I don't see them trying to get at the bottom of THAT, all they do is sit around feigning offense at the sight of Erykah's nekkid bottom.

    xen is right, these simple-minded hairdo reporters just made Erykah's point for her.

    • RONIN

      So their idiots because three individuals made assertions, based on their opinions, that look good inside of quotation marks?

      For what it's worth, I agree with you.

      • RONIN

        I know… THEY'RE

  • Damn Internets

    You just gotta love the bystanding meth-amphetamine women Rebecca Lewis CBS managed to interview. I mean come on, CBS put the words in her mouth for a dollar.

  • nilmar

    Soooo…. what if lady gaga shot a video where mlk was killed? Then pretending to be shot on the balcony of the hotel? It would be considered racist, disrespectful and totally insane! The one thing that erykah reinforces with this stunt is a lack of respect for a fallen president with a hint of anti-establishment.

    • RONIN

      But the thing is, it wouldn't be someone like me crying racism, in regards to that Lady Gaga shit. It would be people like you and these same CBS News people. You're the ones Erykah is saying “fuck you” to.

      I can understand where she's coming from, with her goofy shit. She expected the reaction of “Gasp! Well I've never. This is absolutely unheard of.” from all the uptights out there and the point was not to give a fuck about you hypersensitive motherfuckers, and how distressed you might be about this.

      Either that or it was just a publicity stunt.

      • nilmar

        Wow… all I was saying is that there is a double standard when race is involved! I could care less what she is saying, how she says it, where she says it and who she is or is not saying it to. For all I care she can go to the White House lawn and get ass fucked by Obama while Rush Limbaugh gets ass fucked by Michelle Obama with a strap on. All the while with CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC and BET carrying it live with extreme close-ups and call it an artistic statement.

        I don't care about the artistic statement because everyone has that right. What really irks me is that the double standard would apply if it had been a white person doing the exact same thing where MLK was shot.

        • RONIN

          The media got on this bitch about the video. What more do you want?

          • nilmar

            I don't know… maybe for you to get ass fucked and maybe you'll stop spewing such diatribe. :)

          • RONIN

            Can't back up your argument, huh? Well, that's a shame. It's alright though, just think it through a little more and you'll do better next time, I'm sure.

            Hang in there, sport.

          • nilmar

            That's just it… I don't have an argument of any kind with any of this. You're the individual that seems to have some issue pent up and festering below the surface because you don't and/or can't understand what was written. Seriously.. take you're own advice and “think it through a little more” by reading the posts again.

            Work smarter not harder, son!

          • RONIN

            Alright, so you actually have nothing to say. That's fine and your right, my fault for thinking you did. I shoulda known. But what's this business about me having pent up issues and such? As evidenced by what? I'm not the one who keeps talking about people being ass fucked. Where's that coming from? Something in your past?
