WPIX Reporter Talks About Celebrity’s Failed Kiss Attempt

badu diaz wpixA celebrity turned the tables on WPIX reporter Mario Diaz last week by giving the New York CW affiliate reporter more attention than he really wanted.

Diaz was wrapping up a report about Shia LeBeouf‘s recent arrest when musician Erykah Badu, wearing a Pharrelesque style hat, began mugging for the camera behind Diaz before leaning in for a kiss.

Diaz pushed her away before she could plant one. Diaz later said he sensed something was going on, but the kiss attempt came out of nowhere.

Badu apologized on twitter. Diaz responded with some Prince lyrics. He also talked about the encounter on air. See the video after the jump.
