Flight cancellations and bad weather affect everyone, even musicians.
During a recent CBS news broadcast live from Dallas-Fort Worth Airport, anchor Steve Pickett was on hand to report flight cancellations and delays throughout the area due to bad weather. Helping him out with co-anchor duties was GRAMMY award-winning musician Erykah Badu to report some school delays.
“It’s hard out here for a pimp, you know,” she joked.
In good spirits, she added: “A lot of schools are closed. I’m trying to get to Los Angeles. I just need to wait a little longer.”
One of the more patient passengers, she added much color to the news coverage with her Pharrell-like hat, a “Hey mom!” shout-out on camera with a big smile.
Badu is no stranger to making news stories. Last year, she busked on the streets of New York and only made $3.60. Meanwhile, earlier that summer she scared another on-air reporter when she tried to kiss the anchor.
