Erykah Badu Pays $500 Fine for Disorderly Conduct for Music Video
Singer Erykah Badu has paid a $500 fine and will serve six months of probation for disorderly conduct after filming a music video that offended tourists, The Associated Press reports.
On March 13, Badu stripped naked and acted out being fatally shot in Dallas' Dealey Plaza —where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated — for a music video for her song "Window Seat."
Erykah Badu defends video: "My point was grossly misunderstood"
After the video was released, a witness complained about the filming and said she was offended. Badu, 39, was then cited in April for disorderly conduct.
Badu defended the video, saying it was "grossly misunderstood" and not intended to insult the memory of the late president.
