Erykah Badu acts like a street performer in Times Square and makes only $3.60 from passers by.
One of the modern features of New York City's Times Square is a seemingly endless supply of street performers, or buskers. The most notable of these is the notorious Naked Cowboy, whose ranks Erykah Badu joined yesterday when she went undercover as a performer in the metropolitan hub.
Singing things like “Please, please give me your money, I don’t want to get no job," Badu isn't recognized by anyone and only rakes in $3.60 in tips.
Thankfully, she also adds: “In no way is this video a reflection of my feelings about homeless or unfortunate families nor individuals who have no other means of survival in our world.”
