Erykah Badu Tries to Steal a Kiss From a Reporter on Live TV

Jun 30 2014 - 5:26am

Erykah Badu made a surprise appearance on a local news show when she pranked NYC's PIX11 reporter Mario Diaz by trying to kiss him live on air. On Friday, Mario was reporting on Shia LaBeouf's Broadway arrest [1] when Erykah noticed the news crew filming and proceeded to stop and wave at the camera and eventually go in for a smooch. Mario didn't appear to be too happy about the on-air kiss, but he later promised not to do "the NYC push back" when Erykah apologized to him on Twitter. He also mentioned that his wife and 2-year-old son were nearby when Erykah went in for her kiss but that, after his wife realized what happened, she said Erykah had "great taste." [2]

@fatbellybella [3] I get it because... "Ain't no particular sign I'm more compatible with I just want your extra time and your..... kiss"
