Erykah Badu, who’s known for doing silly things in public, performed incognito last Friday in Times Square. It wasn’t quite silly, according to the artist. "I kinda always wanted to see what it would be like to sing for money on the streets," she said in the self-made iPhone video.

She wound up taking home $3.40. New York City just ain’t right.
