Normally I don't work on a Sunday, but I had to address this misconception.

The Internet is buzzing about Erykah Badu's digitally altered azz in her new video for "Window Seat", that premiered Friday. I thought it would be obvious to everyone that Erykah Badu has never had a phat azz ever in her life. But I guess it wasn't obvious -- even though everything below her waist is blurred throughout the entire video.

Still, it amazes me how easily some people will fall for anything that's right in front of their eyes. But I guess that's why you have me to open your eyes for you and help you to see the light. By the way, the entire video was shot with her in front of a green screen. But you already knew that (I hope you did). Notice how you never see her feet?

Anyway, peep the screen grabs above for all the evidence you need.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    "By the way, the entire video was shot with her in front of a green screen. But you already knew that (I hope you did). Notice how you never see her feet?"

    I figured because no one is looking at her. I mean if I saw someone walking down the street removing articles of clothing my attention would be captured.

    :offtopic: Did anybody see the Bey commercial during the Kids choice awards were she got slimed. It looked like Jay Z the camel spit on her. :lol:

  • yerkesbabe

    Well it looks like her a$$ to me! Cute video.... and it didn't appear to be in front of a green screen, and it did seem as if some people were looking at her.

    Also, they showed her feet at the end of the video.

    Oh well, let me go eat dinner.

    Happy Sunday ya'll.

  • MrsMantha

    So her performance on Jimmy Kimmel when she had on the tights, ya'll saying that her butt was fake on there too? She has had like 3 or 4 children and that gives you hips and butt.....

  • Daisy

    I :heart: E badu and I believe that is all her she got a donk :lol:

    Happy Palm Sun to everybody!

    Those people are called extras. You know, the people who are paid $50 to be in videos?

  • Daisy

    @Sandra when E badu was on the sweet water tour she had junk in the trunk I remember saying them babies gave her an azz and wondered if motherhood would do the same for me :lol: She was on an award show as well and I remember that next day folks were talking about e badu wasnt skinny minny anymore.

    Exactly. In some of the scenes no one is looking at her. Like it's normal to see someone walking along in her bra and panties. Also, half the screen is blurred so you can't see that it's digitally altered.

  • Sandra Rose

    @ Daisy: butt pads are nothing new. :coffee:

  • Daisy

    @sandra it is normal in berkley CA where its legal to walk around nude in public :lol: My classmate said you see naked ppl all the time jogging or at the local starbucks.

    Dont be mad e badu got a phatty :coffee:

  • Lovely One

    Erykah Badu's a$$ has been huge since Baduizm. I saw her in concert some years ago and her butt was big then (my man told me to look - he's been liking Erykah for a while now) :lolol:

    Anyways, and more importantly, Badu's butt does not change shape everytime you see her. That is all :coffee:

  • Mother Jefferson

    Sandra you need to stop! :lolol: you are exactly who she is talking to at the end of the video!

    Chile Erykah has no budget for a green screen or a digitally inhanced booty. Mama has three kids, that behind is all hers. She look good to me :yes:

  • allthingsmwny

    Wow so Window Seat has been reduced to whether E.Badu's butt is real or not?

  • SugarPieHoneybunn

    I haven't seen the video but I am :rofl: at the subject matter here. The Booty Detective strikes again, LOL!!!

    I luvs me some Erykah Badu though. Im just wondering, why would she care enough about what other people think to wear pads when she doesnt care what people think about all the other weird stuff she does?? :shrug:

  • Redeemed777


    Sandra, I wish you would have posted the piece about Jill Scott and "the pinch" rather than Erykah Badu's but cheeks.

  • Ebony

    I haven't seen the video. What is it about?

  • Bird

    Sandra you think everyone's booty is fake. If that was a green screen it's better than anything even Michael Jackson has done. I need more than your word for it.

  • Bird

    Oh, I love the new pic Miss Sandra. The short hair is fierce!

  • chocolatedrop

    It's not a green's what she wrote on her Twitter: “#windowseat was shot guerilla style, no crew , 1 take , no closed set , no warning , 2 min . , don town dallas , then ran like hell…”

    And I thoroughly believe that is her booty...honestly there's a difference between a real booty and a fake one and hers is real.

  • Karamelkisses76

    I wish my booty was fake. Anyhoo, I :heart: Erykah. Fake booty or real booty. I don't concern myself with women's ass*s.

  • ShoYaRight

    Badu ain't got a budget to do all that. Attribute that ass to collards and cornbread.

  • attorneymom

    I will file this one under who gives a ratz azz. Blank stare.

    i'm glad that you pointed out that the whole vid was shot in front of green screen because i was wondering how the heck they got around her copping a charge for indecent exposure.

    good observation.

  • ReadTheBlog

    Why are we even talking about Erykah's butt in this video? Why can't we talk about the message?

    What did the blood that ran out her head spell out?

    True Badu fans know that Erykah doesn't do green screen and digital booty and you did see her feet when she took her shoes off. She said the reason she was walking and looking around is because they were scoping for cops. The video was shot in one take.

    Sandra, she laughed at you when someone said you were talking about her :lol:

    @RTB Sadly some ppl will believe Sandra over the artist themselves regarding the green screen when she has already shut down that rumor but some will still argue that it was a green screen. I liked how she broke down Group think on twitter unlike others E badu has never tried to be different she just is. She has always marched to the beat of her own drum from day one IMO.

    I don't see how this could be a green screen....

    1. A guy picked up her coat off the curb.

    2. She would have had to been in an awfully large studio to walk/jog the distance she did. Costly.

    3. :rotf: @ Erykah digging her panties out before she took her pants off.

    And I believe it was shot live, dude that picked up her coat, also picked up her shoes, and other clothing articles like he was a paid person to do that, pick up all her clothes so after the shoot she could put them back on.

    As a fellow fatty I will put my money on it being real. You are showing her butt from two different angles. What exactly would be the point of Erykah going thru all this trouble to expose a fake ass anyway? :shrug:

    Also, I remember when she performed the tribute to Diana Ross on the BET Awards.

    erykah always had a nice rump and its no different now its just normally covered. you can tell its just people trying to not look just like u see people like oh my god what is she doing. she tweeted about all the details yesterday. somebody asked what did the blood spell it was groupthink. great video talk about the message and not the ass. and go check out matt and kim video see where she got the inspiration from

    So I was watching CNN before I left to go to class and I found out that this video was NOT shot in front of a green screen. Wow is all I can say about this one, she is a brave one. I wonder how she avoided catching an indecent exposure charge.

  • SoulWithSass


    You know darn well that is all Ms. Badu! Erykah has always had a donk, she just usually wears layers of clothes to cover it. She performed at a HoB concert years ago (my cuz went and illegally video'd on her cam) and when she turned around, you could virtually hear every dude in the club say: "damn!" when they saw her behind.

    And you can tell in the see the way its jiggling, with her thighs as she walks! My behind and thighs do the same thing when I walk! Just like fake boobs, a fake behind would be firm, not jiggle, sit up all perky like....that thing on Erykah got some sag to it, baby!

    Beyond that...can we concentrate on the GREAT message in the vid? Yes- her a** was a temporary distraction from it, but let's get back to the REAL message now! Thx!

  • honeygrahm

    Is it just me or did anyone else notice the dude in the red hat in the background. He must have been working the video cause every article of clothing she took off, he ran to pick them up but then tried to blend in the background like he was an extra or something. That kind of breaks down the green screen theory....or if not, those directors are EXTREMELY creative and detail oriented. :)

  • Pingback: You Too Can Have A Donk Like Erykah Badu’s…()

  • MissLouisiana

    Ms. Badu has always had junk. I recall seeing her at a concert about 5 years ago and she was curvy back then. I will have to disagree Erykah is real.

  • brooklynisis

    Well, the day has finally come. Ms. Rose, you have finally exposed your illegitimacy. You clearly have never met Erykah Badu in person. She's a slim woman, but with very AMPLE assets in the back. When I met my husband years ago, he and his brooklyn friends would often talk about Badu and Mya about how surprisingly "phat" they were. In the "Love of my Life" video, Erykah Badu even rhymes about her measurements. 20-26-36....Now how many slim girls do you know that have a 20 top number and a 36 bottom number and aren't fightin' the men off? Also, She's got 3 kids..... So it's amazing that she hasn't gotten bigger than she is.

    While she usually wears African garb and flowing dresses so you couldn't see what she was working with (Mainly because she never promoted herself as a sex symbol), there are a couple videos where you can see that she's definitely packing. Specifically her "Honey" 2:47 you see it ALL!

    I usually love your site, but this slanderous crap is terrible. In your race and attempt to remain relevant, you wanted to jump in with all the other ignorant people and say that you didn't respond earlier because it was so obvious. What would have been great is if you would have said you doubt very seriously that she is enhanced because she's always had a little phatty in the back.

    It's obvious that parts of the new video are blurred to keep from having clear views of people's faces so that they don't have to give credit.

    Besides, if you were going to digitally enhance your butt, wouldn't you make it look "perfect"? I never thought I'd hate one of your posts.

  • DeliciousOne

    Erykah would feel right at home down-town Kampala in Uganda as she is shaped like plenty of girls there. Small on top and gi-nornmous down below.

  • tagmebrown747

    Sorry Sandra, that azz belong to Erykah she is packing and it all belongs to her and this, was no green screen action. Dallasites know Erykah dances to her own drummer. The video was probably filmed in downtown Dallas on an early Saturday or Sunday morning when not many people were out. Who is going to bother a black woman pulling off her clothes in broad daylight in the streets? People probably thought she was another drunk or drug-out homeless person, which is a common occurrence on that end of downtown. Men were getting a view and women probably were saying, "what the hell is the matter with her." The video was slowed down considerably because two minutes to do a strip down is pretty fast. She is a national news story now, as people realized what they saw was Erykah Badu making a video. People are so concern with her nakedness, they did not pick up on the concept of the video.

  • LaJuliet

    Fox News in the Dallas/Fort Worth area ran a story tonight (3/30/10 )in reference to the this video. The mother of a 9 year old girl who was inadvertently filmed/captured in Eryka's video is not happy that Eryka stripped naked in view of her child. The mother is planning to file a complaint with the police department about (Eryka's nakedness lol). She says that she was at Dealey Plaza on March 17, 2010 (celebrating a birthday) when the video was shot. They are even doing a poll asking if people are offended by the video. But this video was not shot in front of a green screen. Here is a direct link to the story. If the link does not work go to click on the entertainment tab and the story will be there.

    Not that I watch Fox News, this came on after American Idol and I could not find the remote!!!
