Witches' Brew: Could Erykah Badu Be Charged?

Could Erykah Badu Be Charged?

It seems Erykah Badu could be looking for more than a window seat if any witnesses from the video shoot step up to complain about her random act of nudity.

Dallas police are reportedly considering whether to charge Badu with indecent exposure for her guerilla-style video for “Window Seat.”  NBC affiliate KXAS reports that if a witness decides to come forward and complain, Erykah could be charged with a misdemeanor, which carries a maximum fine of $4,000 and up to a year in jail.

If you look closely at the video (no, not at Erykah, but at the surrounding “witnesses”), you’ll see there are a few children in Dealey Plaza where the video was filmed. I guess there's concern that some parents could complain, perhaps.  Badu tweeted that she hoped any children there would not be “traumatized” by her exposed body.

One thing's for sure... this album should be a smash with all this talk about the first single. 

Anyway, people need to get over it.  What’s done is done. I sure hope nobody comes forward with complaints. Afterall, kids are exposed to far worse images than the human body in its natural form.

People need to get their priorities straight. There are far more things to be concerned about than a beautiful black woman exposing herself for art.

The world needs more naked women, particularly more naked women that look like this.
