Dallas Police vs Erykah Badu
2010-04-02 by Alex C. Soothsayer | 38 Comments

The Dallas police have filed a disorderly conduct charge against singer Erykah Badu today for her controversial video 'Window Seat.'

In the video (link below) Badu is featured in various states of undress in front of an unsuspecting public in Dealey Plaza, Dallas.

One witness in the case claimed to have seen Badu along with her two children, and was offended by her disrobing without regard for those around her.

The disorderly conduct charge against Badu is a Class C misdemeanor that will cost $500.

^^ This. Just remember that America was founded by religious sex-starved fanatics and everything kinda pieces itself together from there

Lol @ Ilu so true.

Also: The video sucked. I mean it sucked in general but it mostly sucked because I knew from almost the very start that it was only gonna get less interesting the longer I watched.

According to JoshD, it would have been perfectly acceptable had she undressed before children and the rest of the unsuspecting public at the site of Princess Diana's death.

i dont see what the big deal is you normally get fined for streaking right? that's basically what she was doing, plus 500$ aint that bad i got a 300$ for speeding, so i think this is a nonissue

She is famous so she deserves special treatment? IT should have been cleared with the gov'ment first. Plus, it is free publicity for her anyways, so she will probably end up with more money in the long run.

That is the fine. Because she's famous, does she deserve a loftier penalty? Nobody can seem to make sense of anything on this site.

I love how people are like, "WHAT IF SHE DID IT IN FRONT OF YOUR KIDZZZ D:"

It's a fucking naked person, grow up. People are naked all the time. Between you and me, it's actually natural.
