Erykah Badu fined $500 for music video strip

'Window Seat' shoot also lands singer six months probation

DALLAS -- A city spokesman says singer Erykah Badu has paid a $500 fine and will serve six months of probation for stripping during a music video shoot at Dealey Plaza in Dallas, where President John F. Kennedy was fatally shot in 1963.

Badu performed a walking striptease March 13 for her "Window Seat" music video. The video ends with a nude Badu falling to the ground as if she has been shot.

Police in April cited her for disorderly conduct after a witness made a sworn complaint. A number of children were among the tourists and other random passers-by seen on the video.

Dallas city spokesman Frank Librio says Badu paid the fine Friday.

A spokeswoman for the singer did not immediately comment.
