Consider the first part of the song's lyrics:
"So, presently i’m standing
Here right now
You’re so demanding
Tell me what u want from me
Concentrating on my music , lover , and my babies
Makes me wanna ask the lady for a ticket outta town…
So can I get a window seat
Don’t want nobody next to me
I just want a ticket outta town
A look around
And a safe touch down
Ms. Badu through all her transformations generally appears covered so much so that her "ample" shape was a surprise to many. Only Erykah knows actually why as she said through her twitter account "shot (the video) guerilla style" without the proper permits. She is from Dallas, so it isn't a stretch, for her to have shot the video in the same location as JFK's assassiation. Yes he was a president but a man first and clearly vulnerable. Erykah chose to appear to naked to the world to share her message but all of us have felt completely "exposed" at one point in time.
In Fashiona's view....no attire no matter how elaborate or amount of make-up, change of location, or witty banter can "hide" our true feelings or mask our true selves to those that really know us... that is what BEING NAKED truly feels like and should be reserved for those deserve it.
