OkayPlayer just posted this video of Ms. Badu herself donning a disguise and singing on the streets of New York, the corner of 42nd Street and 6th Avenue, to be exact. She even puts her huge hat on the floor for passersby to put money in.

In the video Badu states, “I just always kind of wanted to see what it would be like to sing for money on the streets. So I’m gonna find a good place to stop and do it.”

She stood outside for about 30 minutes and earned a grand total of $3.60.

Badu also made it a point to state,

“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”.
