Singer Erykah Badu has paid a $500 US fine and will serve six months' probation for disorderly conduct over a video shoot during which she took off all her clothes in downtown Dallas.

A city spokesman in Dallas, Badu's hometown, said the singer paid her fine last Friday.

Badu was filmed stripping off her clothes while walking in front of pedestrians during the March 13 shoot for her single Window Seat.

The performance ended with a naked Badu pretending to be shot in the head at Dealey Plaza, where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963. [...]

"Generally, after you shed all the things that you have learned or that people tell you are real or that people tell you you are, you're nude and vulnerable for assassination, and that's what the video was about," she said. "You don't have to agree with it.

"As a performance artist, I like to create dialogue about the art ... It's very important for me to use the platform to be honest and creative at the same time."

Well said.



That was an amazing video. I felt really uplifted when I saw it. A strong female not afraid of her body. She is an inspiration to women everywhere.
