Erykah Badu‘s new video is raising more than just a few eyebrows, it could be raising charges.

Police in Texas are investigating whether to charge the singer with indecent exposure for her “Window Seat” video.


While some people call it art and others call it freedom of expression, police are calling it a crime.

According to NBC affiliate, Dallas KXAS while police were not on the scene, if one witness comes forward to police, she can be charged with indecent exposure.
The video was shot March 17 in Dallas at Dealey Plaza where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

The racy video shows Badu parking a car and slowly walking to the assassination spot stripping away her clothes.

Bystanders including children are seen in the video as the singer strips completely naked before a gunshot sounds and she falls to the ground with the words “groupthink” pouring out of her head.

The misdemeanor carries a maximum fine of $4,000 and up to one year in jail.

Badu is continuing to defend her video and recently took to her Twitter to say,

“I expected the gossip blog sites to spin it negatively . i expected people to ride with me. I’ve been punished AND rewarded enough times by love and life to dedicate the whole thing to EVOLVING . i am happy.”

She later added,

“One cant oppose #groupthink , its a part of human nature , but only recognize his/her position in the thing and redefine his/herself.”

Hopefully for Erykah’s sake no one will come forward as a witness.
