Erykah Badu Sparks Video Controversy

Erykah + JFK's murder site = interesting news:
The music video is called "Window Seat" and was recorded in one take in Dealey Plaza on a warm Saturday afternoon in March 2010.

It shows Erykah Badu, Dallas native and R&B star, doing a slow motion striptease down Elm Street on her way to the spot where JFK was assassinated.

Commercial filming shoots require a permit from the city of Dallas, but here, no such permit was sought or granted.

“She said she was frankly kind of surprised nobody made a formal complaint at the time, though on her Twitter account she says people were yelling at her while they were filming" said Richard Ray, a FOX reporter who spoke with Badu.
Here's the video

Damn, she got an ass on her.
I'll need to watch the video again to get an understanding, though.

While I want to understand her visual 'vision' because I love and support her music, I was impressed with her ass, and I've been watching the video constantly ever since

I actually think the video has a great message. I wish I was that much an artist and willing to put so much on the line for my art and expression. But I must digress that my heart sank when I saw so many little kids around. I hope no one tries to sue her or anything.

Did anyone else wonder whether or not she has an ankh shaved in her bushes? Doesn't it seem like she would! LOL!

I'd love to get a version of the video with actual audio from the bystanders as she ran past.

Also, gosh darnnit the album is too short!!! And when do we get the studio version of Annie or Jump Up In the Air!! Quit teasin us like this girl!! ;)
