We Support Erykah and Nayrok
Recently, there were a video released by the Flaming Lips featuring Erykah Badu, “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.” The video also featured many nude scenes with Erykah’s sister, Nayrok. The video was never approved to be released by Erykah.
Erykah was misled about the nature of the video and the shots being used for the video, and I repeat, never approved of its release. Of course (because she is a black womyn and her sexuality is thus property of patriarcy), society has been finding a way to project their distaste at Erykah for her and her sister’s nudity.
It was very, VERY wrong of them to take the image of two womyn and co-opt them however they wanted for their own personal gain.
If you have reblogged the video or any stills from the video, please remove them. Thank you.>
