The Badu Controversy

31 Mar

They who play it safe are quick to assassinate what they do not understand. They move in packs, ingesting more and more fear with every act of hate on one another. They feel most comfortable in groups. Less guilt to swallow. They are us. This is what we have become. Afraid to respect an individual. A single person or event or circumstance can move one to change, to love ourself, to evolve.

These are the last lines in Erykah Badu’s new hit song “Window Seat”.  These line represents the importance of maintaining one’s individuality and what it is we sacrifice for our own individuality.  I guess that’s why Erykah Badu chose to film this video at the Kennedy Assassination Site.  So now, not only has she expressed her individuality through this video, she has also caused a great controversy around her latest video – why?  Because she took her clothes off in front of people who had no clue….yes she took all her clothes off through the streets of Dallas.  But whats the real issue – she does this without a permit in front of children.  Before I go on, let me state – I LOVE ERYKAH!, but if she took her clothes off in front of my kids, I don’t think I would be cool with that.

In-spite of all this controversy, her album is making it big.  She is all over the internet; as a matter of fact, the top rated google search.  But due to the nudity and copy right infringements, this video has become a “hard find” on the internet. It’s even been removed on YouTube!  But what would this post be, if I couldn’t find the video somewhere on the net and share it, so sit back and enjoy…
