Erykah Badu was stopped in Dallas so police could 'say hi'

Erykah Badu was stopped in Dallas so police could 'say hi'”

It appears that Erykah Badu also had a young child in the vehicle with her at the time.

The 46-year-old soul singer, known for her songs "Tyrone" and "Window Seat", posted a video in which she was pulled over by police in Dallas, Texas.

The next day, Dallas police reportedly detained a man trespassing in Badu's home and issued him a warning, according to WFAA.

Erykah Badu was pulled over on New Year's Eve but it had nothing to do with breaking the law.

A confused Badu said "Hi" before bursting into laughter. "You know I love them very much". Rather than being angry at this rude and probably illegal invasion of her privacy, Badu laughs as well. Badu, in an effort to show that she wasn't bothered by the incident, and in fact, thought it all in good fun, took a video later with the same officers in the hopes of keeping them out of trouble.

"I wanted to say hi", one of the officers said. For one thing, everything about it feels a little staged, from the officer's ready admission that he had no real reason to stop her to Badu's deadpan reaction. I mean it could have been worse...
