The "Next Lifetime" singer was invited to the former president's exclusive 60th birthday bash in Martha's Vineyard. She posted an unauthorized video to social media that shows a bit of the Hawaiian luau-themed party. And Obama was spotted dancing without a face covering. Badu later took the clip down.
"Mr. And Mrs. Obama , Please forgive me 4 being the 'terrible guest' at such a sacred event for your family," Badu tweeted. "I was so inconsiderate, Thank you for all your love. What an example of 'how NOT ' to be"

The singer also made sure to address rumors that it was the Obamas that had asked her to take her post down and to apologize publicly. She replied to one tweeter saying, "Naw sis. It's just right thing."
Artist Trap Beckham, who performed at the celebration, also issued an apology after many of the photos and videos he posted (and later took down) spread online. He also replied to Badu's tweet, saying, "Well said . Truly a misunderstanding and and a honest mistake."
Just want to take the time out to Apologize to Obama & Staff for using my social media Saturday as if it were a regular party. Tbh I was just excited & I never knew it would blow up like this— TRAP BECKHAM (@TRAP BECKHAM) 1628502331
