Erykah Badu Claims ‘Art Has Been Misinterpreted’

Erykah Badu is striking back at those who have criticized not only the “Window Seat” music video but, her character and judgment. According to Badu, the whole thing has been “misinterpreted” and is not as important as “real news”. “I would never disrespect JFK. his revolutionary thinking is my inspiration,” Badu wrote on Twitter this week. “My performance art has been grossly misinterpreted by many.” Premiered early in the week, “Window Seat” has remained a headline story for several mainstream outlets and has even flooded a Texas police department with calls for Badu to be charged with disorderly conduct. While Badu appreciates feedback, she told fans that there are more important stories being pushed aside days later. “all the controversy distracts us from the REAL news . The big cover up . ya’ll know the drill. stay woke,” Badu wrote on Twitter Friday. “what MORE IMPORTANT headlines IN THE NEWS were pushed aside/ over looked due to the over exaggeration of controversial videos ?” Badu’s “Window Seat” is taken from her new album, “New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh)” (released Tuesday, March 30).
