Erykah Badu says her music video, "Window Seat," in which she stripped nude and feigned being shot at the site of President John F. Kennedy's assassination, has been "grossly misunderstood" and was not intended to insult the memory of the late president.
"My point was grossly misunderstood all over America. JFK is one of my heroes, one of the nation's heroes," Badu said on The Wanda Sykes Show Saturday night. "John F Kennedy was a revolutionary; he was not afraid to butt heads with America, and I was not afraid to show America my butt-naked truth."
Badu, a Dallas native, will be fined $500 for disorderly conduct after a witness came forward saying she was offended that she and her two children saw Badu, 39, disrobe at Dealey Plaza during the March 13 shoot.Badu later performed "Window Seat" on Sykes' Fox network show, while the hostess offered her own parody of the video.
