This is a long way from what Roberta Flack ever had in mind. It seems Erykah and her sister Nayrok don’t mind being nude.  I don’t mind nudity either. With Erykah, I’m always left wondering, what’s the point?  Especially when we get to see Nayrok covered, alternately, with glitter, blood and some milky substance that looks a lot like. . .semen.

Anyway, what do y’all think?

    I think you may be the last person on the internet with this video. And I agree — it’s pointless — but it’s also trance-like and engrossing. Not to mention the shock value at the end, which I’ve grown to snickeringly appreciate for some reason.
