Reporter Mario Diaz was joined by an unexpected guest during a recent segment for New York’s PIX11 on Friday.
While doing a story in Manhattan on actor Shia LaBeouf’s latest meltdown, Diaz was video bombed by soul singer Erykah Badu.
The four-time Grammy Award-winning artist, who was in town for Spike Lee’s block party, took a page out of Pharrell’s fashion book by wearing a large white hat as she trolled the news anchor, even trying to steal a kiss from Diaz mid-segement.
You can check out a clip of the hilarious incident embedded above.
Badu, who initially denied her involvment, eventually acknowledged her odd appearance on Twitter, offering up an apology to Diaz, who responded in tongue-in-cheek fashion with a lyric from the kiss track, “Art of Noise.’’
@fatbellybella I get it because... "Ain't no particular sign I'm more compatible with I just want your extra time and your..... kiss"— Mario Diaz (@MarioPIX11) June 28, 2014
Diaz also admitted that his family was too far away from the scene where the incident went down.
@fatbellybella After she figured out what really happened she laughed and said, "Great taste." Next time I won't do the NYC push back.— Mario Diaz (@MarioPIX11) June 28, 2014
