Badu strips down for video with The Flaming Lips

R&B singer Erykah Badu doesn’t leave much to the imagination in a new video she shot recently with The Flaming Lips.

The edgy, expressive singer - who wore her birthday suit in her 2010 “Window Seat” video - is at it again, this time posing naked in a bathtub while crooning “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,” a classic made famous by Roberta Flack, per Rolling Stone.

Interestingly, the most provocatively bared body parts - dripping with milk, glitter and another substance at various points throughout the video - do not actually belong to the Grammy-winning singer but her sister Nayrok, according to the magazine.

Michelle Pfeiffer: Why I became a vegan

The 54-year-old actress tells Dr. Sanjay Gupta on Monday's edition of "Piers Morgan Tonight" that watching his documentary, "The Last Heart Attack," gave her plenty of food for thought.

Brooke Hogan: I always wanted to get into wrestling

Brooke Hogan's new job sort of has her following in her father's footsteps, and she tells CNN that he wasn't thrilled about it at first.

Brooke, daughter of legendary wrestler Hulk Hogan, now manages the female division (a.k.a., "The Knockouts") of TNA's "Impact Wrestling" on Spike TV, she told CNN at the MTV Movie Awards Sunday.

"Secretly I always wanted to wrestle, even though I’m a total pansy," she said. "I cannot take a bump for the life of me, but I just saw the opportunity, and I was like 'why not,' you know, it’s temporary. I get to get in there and straighten a few things out, you know. I’m passionate about it, I’ve grown up in the business, and it’s fun."
