Erykah Badu Pops Off On Wayne Coyne For NSFW Video: ‘Kiss My Glittery A**’

Erykah Badu seriously popped off on Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne today in regards to the release of what was supposed to be the “artistic” video for “Western Esotericism”. Might we add that the video was incredibly RAUNCHY!  In fact, you may question why Erykah Badu would even participate in something so distasteful.

However, it appears that Badu was not happy with the version of the video that found its way on the Internet nor did she approve it.  The video features rather revealing shots of Badu’s sister as she bathes in a white substance that looks like male bodily fluids (aww skeet skeet), glitter and what appears to be blood. (We just threw up in our mouths).

The video has been removed from Youtube for violating their terms and conditions. Erykah,who once raved about the video, now claims that she didn’t see the controversial clip everyone is up in arms about. Well, now that she saw it…she is pissed!

Badu took to Twitter to confront the lead singer and songwriter of the Flaming Lips–Wayne Coyne–who takes full responsibility for the making of and the content of the visuals.

@FatBellyBella lets Coyne have it in a essay-long tweet that exceeded the 140 character limit multiple times.

Celebrating The Life & Music Of J Dilla (2/7/74 – 2/10/06)

Born James Dewitt Yancey, the Hip Hop Super-Producer/Artist better know as Jay Dee & J Dilla, was considered one of the most influential hip hop artists in the music industry. With sentiments echoed by his good friend DJ House Shoes, “Dilla is the best producer…EVER in Hip Hop. Period.”

Taking off in the mid-90s, Dilla’s career spanned over a decade with some of his most notable work for Hip Hop and R&B/Soul artists such as The Pharcyde, Slum Village, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Common, Busta Rhymes, Madlib, Dwele, Erykah Badu & Janet Jackson.

With a steady-rising career, Dilla continued to impact the music scene with his production, remixes, collaborations and vocal appearances until he began to experience health issues that resulted in weight loss and hospitalization. But that didn’t stop him from creating music or from even going on tour in Europe in late 2005 where he performed from a wheelchair. Even when his condition worsened, he had equipment brought to his hospital room where he made tracks bedside until he passed from complications of a rare blood disease called Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP).

So on this day five years ago this remarkable talent left us, and No U Aint Radio celebrates the life & music of J Dilla. Enjoy our music tribute.
