A lot of the controvery has passed since Erykah Badu had both the Internet and the city of Dallas going up for the controversial video she filmed for the song ‘Window Seat’, back in April. Now, she has to pay the price for the controversy.
A Dallas judge has ordered Badu to pay a $500 fine and serve six months probation for disorderly conduct, according to the Associated Press. The verdict stems from Badu’s video in which the singer removes all her clothes in public while walking through Dallas’ Dealey Plaza, which is also where President John F. Kennedy was assasinated in 1963.
The video had many calling for Badu to serve a more severe punishment, including jail time but it also inspired Badu herself. The opening scene of the ‘Window Seat’ remix video featuring Rick Ross, which shows Ross picking Badu up from a Dallas jail, was inspired by the comments and critical backlash Badu received.
