Jun 29 (TheWrap.com) - Local news reporter Mario Diaz of New York station WPIX 11 got an unwelcome surprise when R&B singer Erykah Badu interrupted him during a live report.

Diaz was in the middle of a live report about former "Transformers" star Shia LaBeouf's arrest last week, when a woman wearing a large white hat awkwardly walked into the frame and tried to kiss him.

The woman turned out to chart-topping singer Erykah Badu. But her star status didn't impress Diaz, who immediately pushed her away.
