Music Videos Making Reference to The Holy Mountain by Alejandro Jodorowsky: Erykah Badu Edition

BBC:

Malaysia has cancelled a concert by US singer Erykah Badu after a publicity photo showed her with the Arabic word for “Allah” tattooed on her upper body. Officials say the photo of Ms Badu in The Star newspaper was “an insult to Islam”. The paper has apologised. The Grammy-award winner was due to perform on Wednesday in Kuala Lumpur and is said to be dismayed at the news. Muslim-majority Malaysia has previously warned other international artists to dress modestly for their concerts. Tattoos are forbidden in Islam and using the word “Allah” in a way deemed disrespectful offends many Muslims.

Ms. Badu is imitating the clothes and decorations of the silent assistant to the alchemist as seen in this trailer to The Holy Mountain.
