Burberry Derriere w/ Political Undertones

Mar 29, 2010



If someone can offer me a viable explanation for this video, I'll give you 97 cent. If you want to be deep, focus more on spoken word laced with double entendres, don't take yo clothing off shorty. You're giving me the benefit of the doubt and I'm giving you blank stares in return. And for folks sayin' that she hasn't been thick like that, here is proof. Trust me, I've known.

"The sister is shedding her superficial layers. Exposing herself to the world. Facilitating her own evolution. She is assassinated at the end only to raise again in her EVOLVED STATE."

lmao. the song is apparently supposed to highlight the effects of groupthink. she goes off on twitter all the time about how thinking with the majority can lead one to death (artistically, realistically). hence, why she bleeds the "group think" at the end. in addition, she dies in the same spot that JFK was shot. there are also rumblings that the song is an allusion to JFK....anyway, Erykah's back and she got people confusion like she always does. but you gotta love the chick for it.

"This is also a reference to the John F. Kennedy assassination.

Erykah falls at the same spot, where JFK was shot, except it's on the sidewalk.

When the camera turns after she's down, you can see the the "X' on the street. That "X" markes where Kennedy was shot in the car.

Reference also goes for the title "Window Seat", the video intro and the "Group think" speculations about the assassination.

THE BLUE LETTERS FORM THE WORD...
::::GROUPTHINK::::
Groupthink is a type of thought exhibited by group members who try to minimize conflict and reach consensus without critically testing, analyzing, and evaluating ideas. Individual creativity, uniqueness, and independent thinking are lost in the pursuit of group cohesiveness, as are the advantages of reasonable balance in choice and thought that might normally be obtained by making decisions as a group. During groupthink, members of the group avoid promoting viewpoints outside the comfort zone of consensus thinking. A variety of motives for this may exist such as a desire to avoid being seen as foolish, or a desire to avoid embarrassing or angering other members of the group. Groupthink may cause groups to make hasty, irrational decisions, where individual doubts are set aside, for fear of upsetting the groups balance. The term is frequently used pejoratively, with hindsight.

I still don't get it. Or rather I think there was a better way she could have shown "a shedding of superficial layers" rather than taking all her clothes off. Especially when it seems like every music video these days is full of women barely clothed eluding to sex. In the end, despite her message or her song, she is a woman walking down the street butt naked...is that getting your point across?

I've never been a bid Badu fan, so maybe I'm just not brain washed enough to get it.
