Erykah Badu Gets Six Months Probation

Erykah Badu's controversial music video for "Window Seat," in which the singer strips off all her clothes and feigns being shot in the head in the same spot where John F. Kennedy was assassinated, caused a stir five months ago. But it appears as though the drama is going to be in the rear view for Badu, 39. The singer paid a $500 fine on Friday and will serve six months probation, a Dallas city spokesman told The Associated Press.
A witness filed a complaint against the naked singer in April and Badu was issued a citation for disorderly conduct. The fine and probation are apparently a slap on her dainty, well-jeweled wrist. I say the nudity is not the issue here; re-enacting the tragic death of a beloved President is what seems to be in bad taste in my opinion.
Did you think Badu's video was that big of a deal or was it a big publicity stunt?
