Erykah Badu Fined $500 for Controversial Nude Video
The singer is slapped with a disorderly conduct citation for stripping down in Dallas
Erykah Badu says her new video is about liberating herself from layers of inhibiting demons. Now police want to liberate her wallet of some cash.
The singer will be issued a disorderly conduct citation carrying a $500 fine for stripping off all her clothes and feigning being shot in the head in Dallas’s Dealey Plaza, where John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
Police initially said no citizens complained after the video for “Window Seat” was filmed March 13, but after it hit the Internet one witness came forward: a woman with two children who said she was offended to see Badu disrobe in public, the Dallas Morning News reports.
