Vulture Contest: Win Tickets and Backstage Passes to an Erykah Badu Show

Still wondering how Erykah Badu worked up the nerve to take her clothes off in public for the "Window Seat" video? Here’s your chance to ask her yourself! Vulture’s giving away a pair of tickets and backstage passes to Badu’s June 7 show at Roseland Ballroom, part of her Out My Mind Just in Time 2010 AD tour in support of New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh), and featuring Questlove and Janelle Monae. Sounds pretty great, right? To win, enter your best haiku — that's five, seven, and five syllables per line — about Ms. Badu in the comments below. Make sure to get your poetry in by this Thursday, June 3, at 11 p.m., because we’ll be announcing our lucky winner on Friday. (For complete contest rules, see here.) Okay, that's it. Good luck!
