Erykah Badu Tries to Kiss On-Air Reporter

We know Erykah Badu, the timeless neo-soul songstress. But allow us to introduce you to Erykah Badu, the prankster.

While New York’s Pix 11 reporter Mario Diaz was in the middle of a live broadcast, Fat Belly Bella slowly inched her way in and out of his frame. She showed off her outfit of the day, a tribal-printed top, over-sized black blazer and humongous white hat, before making a lewd gesture with her hands and going in for the kiss.

The broadcaster successfully executed a swerve maneuver to ward her off and continued his report.

At first, the “Love of My Life” singer denied that she appeared in the segment, but later revealed the truth on her Twitter account tweeting, “@MarioPIX11 sorry Mario. : – ))))).”

It was all in good fun as Diaz responded by borrowing a few lines from Prince’s “Kiss” and reassuring her that next time he won’t “do the NYC push back.”

@fatbellybella I get it because… “Ain’t no particular sign I’m more compatible with I just want your extra time and your….. kiss.””

Check out the hilarity below.
