Erykah Badu's New Video Has Everyone Fired Up

Erykah Badu's video for "Window Seat", her new single, is getting a lot of chatter. In the video, filmed in downtown Dallas, Erykah is seen walking down a busy street. As she walks, she loses a piece of clothing. By the time she arrives in front of the Texas School Book Depository, where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, Erykah is nude and she's shot dead. She later said on Twitter it was all done in one take because she didn't have a permit to film. She said people yelled "this is a public place" and she should be "ashamed" and should put her clothes back on. The clothes, by the way, she left behind. So someone in Dallas has a nice Burberry trench and Erykah's drawers.

Update: Erykah is charged
Dallas police have charged the singer with disorderly conduct. It's a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $500.

"Having a fact witness that was there is what let us file the charges," Sgt. Warren Mitchell said. "After much discussion, we feel that these charges best fit her conduct. She disrobed in a public place without regard to individuals and small children who were close by."

He also said people from across the country also called his office to complain.
