Video of the Week: Ms Jackson

There's no high-faluting thesis behind this week's choice. Quite simply, it's a hip hop video based on Doctor Doolittle instead of a porn movie.

Quite why this should be the case is never explained. The song itself is a heartfelt examination of André 3000s break-up from his wife, Erykah Badu. Making clear the guilt and sadness he feels about his divorce, he asks Ms Jackson for forgiveness. In real life, Ms Jackson is Badu's mum, whose real name is Kolleen Wright.

History does not record whether the song's plea for understanding changed Wright's opinion of her former son-in-law, nor whether she appreciated his message being delivered by a parrot on MTV.
