Update 6/5: The video is up again. We received this official statement from Badu's people, via Wayne Coyne, who I envision snapping his suspenders and saying, "Did I do that?":

"The video link that was erroneously posted on Pitchfork by the Flaming Lips of the Music Video 'The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face', which features Erykah Badu, is unedited and unapproved.. Sorry!! We, the Flaming Lips, accept full responsibility for prematurely having Pitchfork post it. It has outraged and upset a segment of fans and we apologize if we offended any viewers!!! This is a Flaming Lips video which features Erykah Badu and her sister Nayrok and is not meant to be considered an Erykah Badu or Nayrok statement, creation, or approved version."

You can read Badu's response to Coyne, via Twitter, here:

"...As a human I am disgusted with your what appears to be desperation and poor execution. And disregard for others. As a director I am unimpressed. As a sociologist I understand your type. As your fellow artist I am uninspired. As a woman I feel violated and underestimated."

Clearly Wayne is desperately trying to prop up album sales and a limping career.

She should've never given them the honor of working w/her bc now so many ppl are hearing about this & wanting to see it...that's seriously shitty of them & I love her music, but admit, by her standing up like this, I respect her soooo much more if possible!

Erykah's sister has got a lot of ass. When she smacked it at 2:37 it turned into a blood soaked perpetual motion machine. I felt like I was being hypnotized.

I made it to 2:28 before I closed the video and took kebab skewers and poked out my eardrums.

That was worse than your typical Lips song. And they usually suck - unless singing DSOTM.I'd rather listen to Schutze rant about the white establishment and the Trinity Tollway.
