Erykah Badu was fined $500 for disorderly conduct for stripping nude at the site of JFK’s assassination during the filming of a music video. Badu says she meant no disrespect.
Erykah Badu says her music video, “Window Seat,” in which she stripped nude and feigned being shot at the site of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, has been “grossly misunderstood” and was not intended to insult the memory of the late president. “My point was grossly misunderstood all over America. JFK is one of my heroes, one of the nation’s heroes,” Badu said on The Wanda Sykes Show Saturday night. “John F Kennedy was a revolutionary; he was not afraid to butt heads with America, and I was not afraid to show America my butt-naked truth.”
Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly is calling for a boycott of Badu’s music.
Last night Wanda Sykes riffed on Badu’s clip.
