Give Erykah Badu an A for effort.
And a W for weird.
The singer stole the spotlight from New York's Pix 11 reporter Mario Diaz on Friday when the journalist tried to report on Shia LaBeouf's arrest... only for Badu to make an obscene gesture in the background.
And then go in for a kiss on live television!
Badu initially denied that it was her in the segment, but she later confirmed her unusual appearance with an apology to Diaz via Twitter.
