Erykah Badu Singing For Money In Manhattan’s Times Square

Published

on

Erykah Badu is one serious prankster. The 43-year-old artist took the streets of Manhattan on October 10 to make money street hustling/singing. We can’t make this up people.

In a video captured on her iPhone, the singer can be seen on the corner of W42nd performing for coins. The star, who teamed up with  OkayPlayer for the bit, revealed in the video that she always wanted to know what it felt like to sing for money on the streets. “In reality, life is a lot harder than this.,” she said in the near eight minute clip titled, Street Hustle Experiment.

“Haven’t sold a record in about two years … B*tch needs some money,” she sung. “I don’t want no real job, I just want to be out here. Give me your money”

4 1/2 minutes later, the “On & On” singer walked away with $3.60.

Badu made headlines back in June after trying to kiss a reporter on live television. New York reporter Mario Diaz was shooting a story for PIX 11 when a happy Erykah approached the reporter from behind and tried smack her lips right onto his cheek. Diaz reacted like any other reporter would and jumped before shooing her away.

He later realized that it was Erykah having some fun.

It’s a new dawn, a new day … DMX is sober!

The rapper’s lengthy history with drug abuse has been well documented by his many arrest and sometimes bizarre behavior, but Dark Man X is putting all of that behind him.

X has been in a treatment facility since late August and has been doing really well. The rapper opted for rehab instead of house arrest in order to improve his chances of kicking his drug habit and it looks like it may have worked.

Sources tell TMZ, the program is almost complete, but x will probably stay another 30 days since he’s been responding so well. X has even been able to take day trips with a friend to a nearby town.

Congrats to DMX!
