Erykah Badu fined for naked stunt at JFK assassination site
Melbourne, Aug 17 (ANI): Singer Erykah Badu has been fined for walking naked in the area where President John F Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas.
According to myFOXdfw.com, Badu, 39, was sentenced to six months probation and also had to pay a 500-dollar fine.
Badu had shed her clothing on March 13 while recording a music video for her song 'Window Seat' at the Dealey Plaza where President Kennedy had been shot, and it ended with her being fatally shot in the head.
Dallas police said many people called to complain about the incident, but only one formal complaint was filed by a parent whose child saw Badu in the buff.
In April, the department officially charged Badu with disorderly conduct.
Badu, a graduate of Booker T Washington arts magnet school in downtown Dallas, has defended herself in the past against accusations that the video disrespected President Kennedy.
"His revolutionary thinking is my inspiration. My performance art has been grossly misinterpreted by many," the Herald Sun quoted her as having said. (ANI)
