    NEW YORK (Billboard) - Erykah Badu has been charged with disorderly conduct over her nude video shoot for her latest single, "Window Seat," according to TMZ.com.


    The Grammy-winning R&B singer will be mailed a citation and faces up to a $500 fine. According to the site, a Texas woman filed an indecency complaint with the Dallas Police Department; an official announcement will be made at a news conference held by the police department soon.


    The video was shot in one take at Dealey Plaza in Badu's hometown of Dallas, where John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963.


    Once Badu gets all the way down to her curvaceous birthday suit, a gunshot rings out and her body collapses on to the sidewalk, as blue blood spills out to form the word "groupthink."


    On the complaints about her decision to go naked on camera, Badu recently tweeted, "Funny thing is, the physical nudity is nothing lol. I been naked all along in my words actions and deeds. thats the real vulnerable place."

    Although I don't always agree with the things she says, I love Badu's music (including this song)...

    Here's the vid in question

    What a surprise...another attention seeking "artiste" thinking nudity is some sort of dramatic avant garde act of creative courage....:rolleyes:

    Same shock value iffin I pulled my pants down on the balcony where MLK was shot.

    I hope she doesnt pay the fine, forgets about it and gets thrown in the clink at a later date.


    :dunno:

    Not surprising. Texans have a reputation for being frightened by the female figure. :P

    Well apparently it does, since she gets a minor citation for it.

    Question: Why is nudity such a big deal in this country?

    A bum taking a leak in an alleyway would get a minor citation too, doesnt make it art, creative or avante garde. Just pissing on a wall.

    I had a rough weekend. I never realized Easter was a big drinking holiday until I moved to WNY :)



    Our countries aghastness to nudity is culturally ingrained and has nada to do with actual morals. No one can possibly think that the sight of a breast will scar a childs mind anymore than seeing an endless parade of dead bodies and gun violence during primetime TV every day of the week and the endless stream of "My D*ck Won't Work Anymore" commercials. Even a store like Walmart will refuse to sell an album should the cover have a partially nude photo...but will sell ever slasher film known to man on the shelf right below. Doesn't make either view right or wrong...but it is all just cultural. We have to remember that our country was founded by a group of people who refused to bathe because you had to get naked to do so...but that same group of people had no problem (thankfully) blowing the brains out of people who stood against our freedom. That's why, even 200 years later, violence is cool but mammary glands are not.

    To be honest, I really don't know which I'm more disgusted by, her, or her "singing" Both together is sickening.

    The only way to redeem that video is iffin the shot was real.

    You'd see like, 46 guys running out of the Book Depository with rifles.

    Not if you throw a song and a camera in there. Then it becomes an exhibit...The Bum Who Had to Pee or something.

    Badu's not a bad looking chick either.
