Erykah Badu recently decided to see how much money she could make by performing on the streets of New York City. With a camera in hand, she headed to Times Square on Oct. 10 and sang for a few minutes. It’s amazing that people didn’t recognize her—and it’s even more amazing that she only made $3.60.

Maybe people weren’t feeling her “I don’t want to get no job” lyrics? Or maybe New Yorkers just suck?
