There's controversy swirling around ERYKAH BADU's new video, as the singer shot her new "Window Seat" vid "guerrilla style," with no crew and in one take MARCH 17th. The singer shed her clothes for the shoot, and walked along a DALLAS, TEXAS, sidewalk in the area where Pres. KENNEDY was assassinated.
CNN reports "Children could be seen nearby as BADU stripped in DEALEY PLAZA, a popular tourist spot since KENNEDY's 1963 assassination."
BADU responded to the network via TWITTER, writing "there were children there. i prayed they wouldnt b traumatized."
BADU will not face indecent exposure charges for shedding her clothes. DALLAS Police Senior Cpl. JANICE CROWTHER said, "But if we had had a call and would have caught Ms. BADU in the act of walking down the street taking her clothes off, she would have been charge with a Class B misdemeanor."
