US singer Erykah Badu
has agreed to pay a 500 dollar fine and serve six months probation for shedding her clothes in a video filmed at the site where president John F. Kennedy was shot dead in 1963, the Dallas Morning News has reported.
Badu, a native of Dallas, paid the fine on Friday, a city spokesman told the Texas newspaper.
In the video, titled "Window Seat," Badu descends from a car and in broad daylight walks down the street shedding her clothes. Families and workers appear in background stunned and surprised.
The five-minute, 35 second video, filmed in March, ends when Badu pretends she has been shot and snaps her head back.
The Grammy award-winning singer was charged with disorderly conduct when tourists and visitors complained, the newspaper reported.
The song "Window Seat" was one of the most popular Rythm and Blues songs of March, according to music rating services. It is featured in the CD "New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh," which hit the market in August.
Badu explained via a Twitter message that the video was a declaration against "groupthink."
The video was filmed in one take. Badu said she was more concerned about police interrupting the filming than about appearing nude in public.
