Erykah Badu fined for stripping

Erykah Badu has been fined and will serve six months' probation for stripping during a music video shoot.

A Dallas city spokesman said the Grammy winner had paid a 500 dollar fine after the shoot in Dealey Plaza, where US president John F Kennedy was shot dead in 1963.

Badu performed a walking striptease on 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 on Friday.

A spokeswoman for the singer did not immediately comment.
