Erykah Badu seriously popped off on Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne today in regards to the release of what was supposed to be the “artistic” video for “Western Esotericism”. Might we add that the video was incredibly RAUNCHY! In fact, you may question why Erykah Badu would even participate in something so distasteful.
However, it appears that Badu was not happy with the version of the video that found its way on the Internet nor did she approve it. The video features rather revealing shots of Badu’s sister as she bathes in a white substance that looks like male bodily fluids (aww
skeet skeet), glitter and what appears to be blood. (We just threw up in our mouths).
The video has been removed from Youtube for violating their terms and conditions. Erykah,who once raved about the video, now claims that she didn’t see the controversial clip everyone is up in arms about. Well, now that she saw it…she is pissed!
