Erykah Badu Awkwardly Interrupts Live TV News Report on Shia LaBeouf Arrest: Watch
News reporter Mario Diaz of New York station PIX 11 was caught off guard by Erykah Badu while doing a live television broadcast about the recent arrest of actor Shia LaBeouf.
As seen in the video below, Diaz was reporting on LaBeouf’s arrest during a production of “Cabaret” at New York’s Studio 54 on June 26, when a smiling Badu, wearing a large white hat and black coat, walked up behind the journalist and attempted to kiss him before getting pushed away.
Shortly after the 5 p.m. broadcast on June 27, observers on Facebook and Twitter reportedly pointed out that the woman in the broadcast was Badu. When asked on Twitter if she was the woman in the video, Badu simply replied, “nope.” But hours later the singer tweeted an apology to Diaz.
@MarioPIX11 sorry Mario. :-)))))— ErykahBadoula (@fatbellybella) June 28, 2014
Outside of awkward TV news interruptions, Badu recently appeared at Dave Chappelle’s sold-out Radio City Music Hall and Spike Lee's “Do the Right Thing” block party in Brooklyn.
