New York City reporter Mario Diaz of PIX11 was reporting on Shia LaBeouf's arrest when all of a sudden singer Erykah Badu showed up and decided to try to give him a kiss on the cheek. She was not scheduled to be there or anything just simply walked up and tried to do it.

Erykah went to Twitter to apologize. Mario responded saying, "#Btw my wife and 2-year-old were 20 yards away when it happened. She saw the roll up, you putting on hat & everything." All that she said to him was simply "Sorry Mario." You can't really tell if he was forgiving her or not by his comment honestly. Hopefully his wife wasn't too upset by it all.

In the video, she walks up behind him on one side wearing a really big hat. Then she goes around to the other side of Mario with a big smile on her face. She goes back grabs his arm and tries to kiss him but Mario stops her from going through with the big kiss on the cheek. He may have not even had any idea who she was when it all went down. MSN shared that it was obvious her status didn't impress him. He may have just been shocked.

Mario called her a fan in the video and seemed really surprised it even happened. It was all handled pretty well though and maybe Erykah Badu will realize not to try that one again. It obviously did not go as planned for this singer so maybe she will have better luck if she tries it with someone else in the future.
