View Full Version : Erykah Badu Window Seat Video: Is Her Stripping Illegal or Just in Poor Taste?

Heads turned during the filming of singer Erykah Badu's latest music video, "Window Seat"

The video was shot in and around Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas. In it, Dallas native Badu walks down Elm Street while stripping her clothes off one piece at a time - until she's fully nude. Elm Street is the place where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

Badu walks between several people on the street, and a few can be seen staring at her as she strolls and strips. You can watch the video on her site. It's slightly NSFW, although parts of her body have been blurred out.
Badu is completely nude as she approaches the spot on Elm where Kennedy was shot (which is marked with an "X" on the pavement). The sound of a gunshot can be heard and Badu collapses as if she has been shot.

Streaks of blue "blood" then spill from her head as she lays in the street, spelling the word "groupthink."

i loved her booty … ooops i mean her song !!!! lol no,I mean her booty! LOL

anyways...whatever,the dallas police are just trying to save face as this video is now viral. at the least she is going to pay a fine…most people over all missed the actual message in the song and this controversy is just going to be more exposure for the song.so in a sense aside from the song, its great marketing. especially if you been to dallas, or are from texas, you would know theres alot more pressing crimes like fixing the hellhole that is oakcliff where ive seen plenty of women or crimes in broad daylight on street corners than this nonsense..

Erykah Badu charged over Dallas nude video shoot

Neosoul singer Erykah Badu faces a disorderly conduct charge for her nude music video shoot in downtown Dallas' Dealey Plaza, officials announced Friday.

Badu, a Dallas native, performed a walking striptease in front of tourists and pedestrians during the March 13 shoot for Badu's "Window Seat" music video. The performance ended with a nude Badu acting out receiving a fatal gunshot to the head at the spot where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963.

Sgt. Warren Mitchell said Friday the decision to cite Badu for disorderly conduct a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500 came after witness Ida Espinosa, 32, of Vernon, offered a sworn statement to police Thursday. Espinosa declined to comment to The Associated Press on Friday.

"Having a fact witness that was there is what let us file the charges," Mitchell said. "After much discussion, we feel that these charges best fit her conduct. She disrobed in a public place without regard to individuals and small children who were close by."

I think she has $500 to use for the fine. Just an assumption though
