Singer Erykah Badu will be cited for disorderly conduct for getting naked in Dealey Plaza, the site of John F. Kennedy's assassination, for her video for "Window Seat."
Just when you thought you'd heard every nude scandal imaginable.
The Dallas Police Department announced Friday that "the statements from the witness would rise to the level of disorderly conduct," Deputy Chief Mike Genovesi said.
According to reports, a woman filed an indecency complaint after she and her two young kids witnessed Erykah Badu nude, filming a climactic scene in her video.
But it got people talking about her when they otherwise might not be, right? Hmm. You know somewhere, Spencer Pratt is plotting a similar Heidi Montag nude stunt.
BADU NEWS: Interestingly, it wasn't the nudity that got her in trouble.
"To shoot that, they would have had to get a special permit from the events office, and it would have had to specify what filming they were doing, what subjects they would use and any traffic control they would need," Dallas Police officials said.
"They definitely did not get a permit."
City authorities admit, however, that no one probably would have batted an eye about any of the violations (Class C misdemeanors) if Badu hadn't gotten naked.
"None of this would have occurred had she stayed clothed," Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway said. "But since she didn't, it elevated the need for making sure that we have policies in place that will protect folks and the integrity of the city."
Badu's camp has not commented on the citation, but "Window Seat" directors Coodie and Chike said Badu was "ready to be arrested on the spot" last month.
That would have made an even greater scene, so not surprising. This officially tops the Mindy McCready sex tape for oddest nudity-related story of the week.
