I’m sure there are 10,000 blog posts right now that explore the meaning of Erykah Badu’s “Window Seat” video. I will do no such breaking down here (I think you should take from the video what you will), but I will say that I LOVE the video and offer a few thoughts.
Badu is one of those artists who always has layers and tasty little bits for her fans to chew. This video is no exception. Evolution, courage, black female beauty (yes, she’s holdin’), revolution and empowerment are just some of the terms that came to mind as I watched this. Some folks said the nakedness was crass, but I don’t think nakedness always equals raunchy. She owned that. No delusional video chick there.
What do you think about the video? Did you feel like you “got” it?
