    Default Erykah Badu charged over Dallas nude video shoot

    DALLAS 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."

    Mitchell said the department has had "people calling from all across the country to express their concern."

    Mitchell said Badu can either fight the charge or pay the fine. He said a citation would be mailed to the singer.

    Carla Sims, a spokeswoman for Badu, had no immediate comment Friday.

    It's called "my career is tanking, I need to do something to get people to notice me, as my music isn't doing it".

    At least that is my take.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    i don't know if her career is tanking per se, she's certainly not on top of the charts or anything like, but she's had quite a career thus far and made some pretty good music and money.

    Her first album saw her flirting with mainstream popularity and such but she's been doing pretty well with her jazzy, spoken word stuff over the passed several years. I saw a show of her's on TV recently and it was pretty bad ass. She's got a helluva band backing her up, similar to the Roots.

    Bottom line, I think she's just on her own wavelength and though I'm sure she's no dummy and reailzed there would be press, I don't think she did it for the sake of bumping her career. I think she probably had some artistic, political, sociological ambition here.

    I'm thinking something along the lines of John and Yoko going nude for the cover of Unfinished Music #1.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Maybe I am too cynical, but I think you are giving here WAY too much credit.

    I didn't say her point or ambition had any merit, relevence or significance.
