More trouble for Badu over naked video stunt

More trouble seems to be brewing for Erykah Badu of her public nudity in the video for her single the Window Seat.

Ida Espinosa is upset that her 9-year-old daughter was in downtown Dallas, Texas on March 17, the same day neo-soul queen Erykah Badu filmed a video that included the removal of clothing in public as well as a mock shooting scene.

Badu has come under fire for stripping in her latest music video ‘Window Seat,” which was shot in and around Dealey Plaza in the singer’s native downtown Dallas. The controversial footage that continues to set the web ablaze features Badu walking down Elm Street while stripping her clothes off one piece at a time – until she’s fully nude.

Badu walks between several people on the street, and a few can be seen staring at her as she strolls and strips. Adding insult to injury, Elm Street is the place where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963.

Dallas officials say Badu, a mother of three, didn’t have a permit to shoot the vid, but they don’t intend to file public indecency charges against the star. That’s not good enough, says Espinosa, who is considering filing a criminal complaint against Badu.

Ida is hoping police will force Erykah to issue a public apology and pay a small fine.
