If anyone should know how to sell her body to create publicity, it's Erykah Badu. Badu has been charged with public indecency for showing her azz in a music video that was taped as she allegedly walked butt naked in historic Dealey Plaza in Dallas last month.

Back in 2006, Badu considered herself above all that.

But she didn't mind dispensing tongue in cheek advice to trollops in this video shot back in 2006. In it she explains just how to get that much craved attention. "Create your own publicity. Do some ho sh*t... You got to do some ho sh*t," said Erykah then.

Is that the same ho sh*t that she displayed in Dealey Plaza -- but now she wants to call it art? I call BS on Erykah and her shameless attempt to sell records.

    Hello All. Years ago, Madonna stood along side a busy highway, buck naked, with her thumb out, like she was hitching a ride. She called it art and lots of other folks did likewise, and she is an icon. (You can find this photo in her bestseller.) Such a shame that we're so caught up in nakedness. There's so much more important stuff happening in the world without bashing Badu. You Go Badu, you a bad bish and a talented one at that, a bit eccentric but very talented. I guess black folks can't be eccentric only crazy. Peaceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    Oh Sandra...

    Stop being such a prude. If Rihanna had did it, you'd have been running behind her on the street trying to get a 10x zoom shot of her anus. But dare it be somebody with real talent, ability, and *gasp* intellect who's trying to illustrate a point....and you want her head on a platter.

    Miss me with all that, please.

  • Al-Ameera

    Sandra, you know that is not hardly what she is talking about in this video. She is talking about the constant attention wh*ring of the likes of Bey and Rih Rih and Ga Ga.

    This is not the norm for Erykah and you know it.

    Haven't seen the video and don't really care too, but I can already tell you that I would rather see her bucked azz nekkid than some of the stuff Lady GaGa does....that ish she did at the MTV awards was gross and I am a pretty outside of the box/liberal minded person.....

    If this was Lady GaGa...people would be saying how original and artsy it was.... I guess Kanye' is right..

    ****Even if you in a Benz, you still a nygga in a coupe [coop]*****

    Not saying if the concept is right or wrong, don't care either way- not for me to judge, but I always find it funny, that what one person can do and it be not only accepted, but applauded and when the next person does it, they are chastized and scolded...people do that in jobs and even in their own families sometimes...what one child does and get away with, if the other does the same exact thing, they are punished :shrugs:

    To be honest I am surprised this Video is STILL being talked about.
    Everyone talks about how artist do things just to get attention but the kick in the a$$ is those same people can’t/won’t stop talking about the artist when they do something. So you play into their plan perfectly.

  • Sweet-D

    It's one of those things that people should form their own individual opinions about. Man, when Sandra hates, she hates hard!! Had it been Rihanna (who we all know Sandra seems to want to lick), it would have been tastful art. Publicity/Schmublicity... If it's that bad Sandra, quit reporting it... Yes hun, writen hatery is a form of giving her publicity.

    I can't help but think that if the "GROUP" had louder sounding applause to Erykah's artistic expression, than a lot of you would have as well. Groupthink...is it a pro or a con for you?

    Groupthink, a term coined by social psychologist Irving Janis (1972), occurs when a group makes faulty decisions because group pressures lead to a deterioration of “mental efficiency, reality testing, and moral judgment”

    Groups affected by groupthink ignore alternatives and tend to take irrational actions that dehumanize other groups.  A group is especially vulnerable to groupthink when its members are similar in background, when the group is insulated from outside opinions, and when there are no clear rules for decision making.

    Knowledge is power and we as citizens and as a nation are becoming less powerful.  We face an administration that believes in operating under high levels of secrecy.  The American press, especially the television news media, has let down the American people and the American people have allowed this to happen.  US television news is geared more toward providing entertainment than information.

    Current examples of groupthink can be found in the decisions of the Bush administration and Congress to pursue an invasion of Iraq based on a policy of “preemptive use of military force against terrorists and rogue nations”.  The decision to rush to war in Iraq before a broad-based coalition of allies could be built has placed the US in an unenviable military situation in Iraq that is costly in terms of military deaths and casualties, diplomatic standing in the world, and economically.

    @iscream,

    Personally, I think she's a farce. But here goes: she spelled out group think with her "blood" (blue blood at that) to show that her true self (in her naked form) and individuality was murdered by the masses and their inability to think individually and attack as a group... that's not really all what the group think theory entails but whatever Supreme Baby Mama of Easy Dallas with a head wrap & incense, you deep. :rolleyes:

    Love Erykah because I feel like she is a true artist, she writes/produces her own music and the majority of it is good music, I gotta respect her for that. HOWEVER, they say there is a thin line between brilliance and insanity. Most artistic people generally teeter this fence and tend to be way out there. She is no exception.

    To be honest I just don’t take her that serious beyond music. Sometimes she will say something profound but most of the time she is on some sun, moon and quasars stuff and I just let it go.

    I am very familiar with the groupthink concept but how about I didn’t know what the heck she was spelling in her psychedelic blood :rofl:

  • Ms.Everything

    Im gonna back away from the keyboard before I pull an IM. But let me say this the cd may be good but Erykah is still dead ass wrong for getting asshole naked on the street and breaking the law to explain a concept that has been out for years. I wish people would pull their head out of her eco friendly socially conscious vagina long enough to realize this. She did nothing new except break the law in TX and garner publicity. Kudos to you Erykah, great cd but you were still dead ass wrong and should be happy I was not there with one of my children or this would've been a different headline not because I'm ashamed of my body, not because I have issues with a black womans body being naked in a non sexual form and definitely not because I've been conditioned to think public nudity is wrong or I'm incapable of thinking independently as all the supporters of this nonsense were saying this weekend but simply because my children nor I are interested in viewing your naked ass period nor should we be forced to cause you had an impulse to drop your draws and run the streets in broad daylight. And I'm not gonna touch how insensitive it was to show yourself being shot in the head at the exact location Kennedy was killed. That man still has family alive in this country and that assassination touched as many people as 9/11 gtfoh with that bullish. Same non original point could've been outlined in a different way that wouldn't have screamed inappropriate controversy that was created to sell records. And as I said before, she is not the epitome of social consciousness that we should all aspire to be like but she is an extremely talented artist who in moments of extreme highness has a tendency to make bad decisions. But again great album

Truth be told I'm simply fed up with the topic and all of the things I said above were all things being said to me for disagreeing with the video.

    And I'm gonna choose to ignore those who feel that I'm taking it personally. I think I just explained my annoyance and please excuse any typos as I was multi tasking. I don't take her nakedness personal, I do however take being insulted, called ignorant and having people say the most ridiculous things possible in order to defend something that they know nothing about. Not too many were on SR this weekend so I was mostly on other sites but still. And the worst were those pulling the race card saying it was racist to charge her for breaking a clear common sense law. Maybe my actual issue is with the amount of ignorance in the black community right now and how blind some of our people really are. Believe what you want but don't blindly follow, research, do the math and know what and who you are following. I got called out on here this weekend because I dared mention that she has three babies by three different rappers as I was listing how contradictory Erykah can be as well as a tweet where she mentioned Good Friday and ankh in the same sentence or the fact that she claims enlightenment while high, is rumored to be a five percenter but will sing about God but othertimes its just a higher power. When I said that I was told I'm not a true fan even though I've bought every album since she came out. She is eccentric, off the wall, but talented so people choose to overlook the bad for the good and I'm not that type of person.

Do that ish on twitter or facebook... One of the websites where you update people on your "feelings" and ish. If people put this much into things that actually MATTER, all would be good.

  • Ms.Everything

    @ Sweet D: I could or I could air my grievances on here under a topic about this very thing :) To put it simply and then drop it hopefully once and for all this whole thing has brought to light how blind, uneducated and painfully lost many in the black community are today especially the youth. Not for agreeing or disagreeing to the video or message but those who went pro or con based off what the majority is saying or those who went completely off the wall and conjured their own meanings that carried no logic or those who took Erykahs words to be undeniably true without researching, looking at the entire picture or even applying critical thinking but decided that this was gonna be the new cause of the century a revolution against the masses with Erykah leading the charge when if she had secured the proper permits, closed off the street and had the assassination portion take place at a generic locale before debuting the video while tweeting exactly how she did it (thus bringing attention to the misdemeanor(s) she committed) this all would've been a non issue, the video would've aired, people would have watched and drawn there conclusions without it turning into the massive controversy that it ended up being which is why myself and others believe it was a marketing strategy especially since the message is a recycled philosophy that's been around for years. She made this into the huge issue it became and she is ultimately profiting from it when you consider how many hits her website has gotten, how many people who had no idea who she was are know aware and possibly bought the cd, and the amount of free publicity this has garnered. But when I suggested that the rabid masses went after me saying Erykah is above a marketing scheme and she doesn't care about record sales only making good music... umm yeah okay. I just wish our people especially the younger generation weren't so easily blinded by celebrity status that they could look at the whole picture before attaching themselves to a cause and/or person that's all. Just because a person is talented or good looking does not mean they are perfect or have their best interests at heart. The bottomline for most entertainers now a days is money: they don't care what they are selling as long as it brings in a profit and the fact that her cd was not being marketed speaks wonders. Alright my PSA is over you can go back to your regularly scheduled programming :coffee:

    Now that Erykah Badu will get a ticket in the mail, for DISORDERLY CONDUCT, not public indecency, Sandra. The ticket is equivalent to a speeding violation this should bring the nudity issue to a close. The ticket has nothing to do with the nudity. Basically, the ticket is for not getting a permit to shoot the video, that is the law that she broke. The Dallas Police and the city attorney are not going to say this publicly they are going to let the general public think it’s for the nudity and put "Baduism" to bed. This is the best they could come up with, because the Dallas nudity laws on the books only address nudity in public for sex or sexual pleasure and the two minute video was considered to be neither. Her nudeness was not sexual according to the nudity laws, as she was not trying to get her freak on or anyone else’s. Shooting video is considered a form of art, so Erykah did not break the law for nudity.

    For three weeks this video was not even on the radar for the Dallas local news media. Once it hit the national news and people discover the woman in the video was Erykah Badu, then it became a problem. Local people did not give a kick, until the national news picked the story up. You see craziness on a regular in downtown Dallas, you chuck it up to drugs, homeless, drunkenness or whatever and keep it moving. The person who came forward and file the complaint so the police could issue the ticket is not a member of the Dallas community and lives about 100 miles outside of the city. She came forward after probing from the news media and getting her 15 minutes, admittedly did not see Erykah’s genital area. When Erykah passed the complaintant and her daughter she had on her sweat bottoms and bra. Erykah was several yards away from the child when she pull off the sweat pants and bra. None of the Dallas citizens that were at the site when the video was made filed a complaint. That says a lot about what they thought, much to do about nothing.

    Those of you talking about discretion of the JFK memorial come through the weekend nights or a big event night and take a chance on what you might see, guaranteed it will not be artistic.
