    OLD NEWS DOUCHE!! THIS WAS LEAKED 2-3 DAYS AGO.



  2. 2

    great



  3. 3

    damn! someone done lost their mind!!! its too much, her sense of being lost and lonely, feeling disconnected. this video made me depressed. this woman needs to watch some early Nelly Furtado videos and get happy, CLOTHED, and strong…QUICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DAMN if that isnt a visual downer… I could'nt tell u what is. Girl invest in an AB ROLLER!!!



  4. 4

    Brilliant… powerful video. Always loved her music and this is amazing.



  5. 5

    Wow. That's one way to visit the grassy knoll.



  6. 6

    LOVE THIS! Especially the bit at the end.



  7. 7

    First of all, what is this video about–a mad woman wandering the street and begging for attention by removing her clothes before getting shot?

    Erykah, you've gained a ton of weight, so keep your clothes on.

    Prefer your older stuff before you lost your mind like Lauryn Hill.



  8. 8

    She's one of the few artists out there that's actually original and different.



  9. 9

    idiot, she did this video near the spot where kennedy was shot. a highly visited area in Dallas. she did this in public, without permission in full view of kids. 'I hope I did not tramatize any children' she said on the news this morning. IDIOT. MORON. I have to shot a video for 'my art', 'I DON'T CARE IF I HURT OR OFFEND ANYONE' . Hope every parent there with kids sues the hell out of her.



  10. 10

    I like this Video better when Matt & Kim did it



  11. 11

    All those people that are calling her crazy have absolutely no idea what the video was about. So what if she was naked. Why don't you actually pay attention to the message of the video rather than trying to berate something you don't understand. Funny thing is that video touches on that subject. Open your eyes.



  12. 12

    I LOVE HER!

    I LOVE Eryka!!! BUT to be hoenst she does look a little crazy taking her clothes of like that just in the middle of the street at least wear something fancy and nice,,, and not look homeless.

    But I love her for being true! thats bold and I see where's going, like this is real, this is me and set apart from the common masses of sheep she is surrounded by.



  14. 14

    wow. i am always so impressed by her. love the golden smile @ the end.



  15. 15

    She just gets better and better with age.

    Re: Orator

    Orator do you and poosie live under a rock? I think you guys are seeing urself in the video. your opinion of it is you…..i didnt get depressed or was shocked by a little or alot of skin…aren't we born naked…the naked body should not offend, everyone can be naked or stripped down to nothing, you guys need to get ur head out of ur arse…and start to appreciate what you dont know…isn't it easy to offend, diss, bad talk something that you dont know or even begin to want to understand….



  17. 17

    I do NOT like her. I think SHE is racist, frankly.



  18. 18

    honestly, msloriga, that is one of the most uneducated, ridiculous responses I have ever seen to anything. is it really worth commenting if you have nothing to say?



  19. 19

    Holy shit! Who knew she had such a fine ass?! Where's the uncensored version?!



  20. 20

    Okay what's with them Rick James braids she got in her head at the very end



  21. 21

    This is a great, deep video. It is about not following the crowd like a mindless sheep and being a individualist. Following your path and being on your own journey. Like she said "groupthink will assasinate you". An example of that is that the genious that is Lauryn Hill is considered crazy just because she is being herself and not assimilating to what society wants her to be.



  22. 22

    Re: msloriga – You make claims, with no evidence to back up those claims. Why do you think she is racist?



  23. 23

    Re: justtfax – Are you really this uncomfortable with nudity and the human body? Very sad.



  24. 24

    Re: poosie – Are you really this uncomfortable with nudity and the human body? How sad.



  25. 25

    Re: Orator – Sounds like someone is jealous.

    The concept was realist…evolving…….. we entered with no clothes on..soooo what!!!!
    I LIKE.



  27. 27

    I'm all for art and self-expression, yet her decision to do this in front of an unsuspecting audience that included young children troubles me. It seems a bit narcissistic. And she could exercise a bit, too, ’cause she's looking out of shape.



  28. 28

    love the concept which was inspired by Matt and Kim's video Lessons Learned. Watch it on youtube. It's brilliant.



  29. 29

    That song is awful and i am so tired of all the nudity in music videos.



  30. 30

    Re: justtfax
    chill the fuck out dude. nudity doesn't traumatize anyone. everyone's nude under their clothes. did your momma beat u with a bible growing up?



  31. 31

    i think shes in shape before she was too skinny now she looks good



  32. 32

    bearing in mind the message of the video, it's SAD how many people didn't understand or wanted to hear it… that's exactly what she's saying.

    apart from that, music, voice, everything nice!!

    Love love love the single and video, a real messenger



  34. 34

    Great video! Very succinct and provocative. The message of the video was awesome. The nudity was a tactic to illustrate that message nothing more. I don't understand why people are offended by nudity! The human body is beautiful. So what if children were present. It wasn't pornographic and I don't think they'll be traumatized. JUST RELAX PEOPLE

    lol it was a green screen i work right there in when they film it i was just 4 guys walking one was holding the camera



  36. 36

    I loved this video and all of these ignorant comments proves her point…people hate what that do not understand…its not the video that is wrong its the people that have not and probably will not LISTEN to the message in it…we should no be so quick to judge and prosecute one another we are all human and have our own flaws



  37. 37

    Seriously Perez, I can't believe you find your life fulfilling at all. You sit on your computer and gossip. Are you a 13 year old girl or something? I find it disgusting that you are considered a celebrity and that you are actually paid to blog. You wonder why the world has so much hatred towards the United States. It's because of absolutely useless people like you, making millions of dollars when you benefit society in no way what so ever. I'm sure you get hate mail all the time and you shrug it off, but maybe I can at least try to get through to you. Do something with your money, billions suffer while you sit in the lap of luxury.



  38. 38

    I'd love to see full body shots of all the a-holes who have to comment that she looks fat. She looks like a woman. It's refreshing to see a woman who is naked and isn't built like a 12 year old boy or full of silicone.



  39. 39

    I thought it was a crap song and a crap video, but I am an extra in it. The area was closed off, so no "kids" were in the area. There is a ton of constant construction going on in that whole area, so it was no big deal to shut down a few roads. Commerce,main and elm at that area are always torn up.was a good shot of the old red court house across the street from the records building.thing is, dallas police department would not waste a second in shooting someone that was walking around butt naked.remember the dallas zoo incident a few years ago with jabari?

    Re: justtfax – yo, you know what really traumatizes a kid? when you teach him that nudity and sexuality are disgusting and shameful. you know what else traumatizes a kid? seeing michelangelo's david or da vinci's vitruvian man blurred out (as i have seen many-a-time in the good 'ol puritanical us of a).

    Re: msloriga – yo, this comment might not be incredibly racist if she had actually attacked you and called you racist. since she has not, i must assume you are scared of black people who 'stir things up'.



  42. 42

    Re: justtfax – what a fucking selfish ignorant moron…and she had the tattoo that said evolved or evolving…sick bitch.Re: eli_la_unica – she did this in full view of kids u fucking moron. the day you get your head out of your ass,… then come back and say something. if this video and song aint straight up home grown shit… i cant tell u what is. all her neurosis was all over this video and i sensed it. she needs help.



  43. 43

    Re: sloth – yea ok…theres a time place and age for everything. can it tard.



  44. 44

    Re: vieennoir – that crazy bitch is lucky i dont have kids and was not there with em… or i for one would have brought a law suit if feasible against her. selfish, looney moron!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  45. 45

    Oooga… I think I just finished…



  46. 46

    Re: WhyusoJelous – I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought her body looked great!



  47. 47

  48. 48

  54. 54

    Sooo… why did Erykah choose Dealey Plaza for this controversial video? This book helps explain why: The Scrapbook Lecture. (www.TheScrapbookLecture.com)



  55. 55

    all you dudes that claims nudity isnt a big deal must be thoroughly sick in the head and you really need your heads checked, why dont you guys just go but naked on the street to prof nudity aint nothing.
    and missevie must be pretty blind to say there are no minors in the scene.
    the video is crap and absolutely not cool, the exhibition of a derailed woman seeking attention.
    CRAP!!!! CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MEGACRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
