Erykah Badu Crashes the News, Tries to Kiss Reporter! (Video)

Erykah Badu hilariously crashed a PIX 11 news report on Friday (June 27) in New York City and she even tried to give the reporter a kiss!

The 43-year-old singer was walking by the reporter, who was stationed outside the London Hotel doing a report on Shia LaBeouf‘s arrest, and she made some super funny movements in the background.

Erykah later apologized to the reporter on Twitter, saying “@MarioPIX11 sorry Mario. :-)))))”

Here is what Mario Diaz said back to her: “I get it because… ‘Ain’t no particular sign I’m more compatible with I just want your extra time and your….. kiss.’ #Btw my wife and 2-year-old were 20 yards away when it happened… She saw the roll up, you putting on hat & everything. After she figured out what really happened she laughed and said, “Great taste.” Next time I won’t do the NYC push back.”
