Verdicts In: Badu Gets Fine And Probation For Stripping Naked

R&B singer Erykah Badu has paid a $500 fine and will serve six months of probation for stripping completely naked during a music video shoot for “Window Seat” at Dealey Plaza in Dallas, reports the AP. Authorities cited Badu back in April for disorderly conduct after a witness made a sworn complaint. Badu, who plead not guilty for the “statement,” said in an interview: “I expected it to provoke dialogue, and it’s an important statement to make. It’s about freeing oneself of the layers and layers of things that we have learned as Americans in this country. At the point of becoming naked and individual and free, either you’re assassinated spiritually or mentally by the group or worse.” At the end of the video, Badu falls to the ground as if she was shot, in the same area President John F. Kennedy was fatally shot in 1963.
