Erykah Badu to Be Charged Over Nude Video

4/2/2010 6:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Erykah Badu will be charged with disorderly conduct over her nude video shoot that took place in the middle of Dallas ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Our sources say the announcement will be made at a news conference held by the Dallas Police Department momentarily.

Erykah took her clothes off in the middle of Dealey Plaza -- the place where JFK was assassinated in 1963 -- for a music video shoot.

A Texas woman filed an indecency complaint with the PD.

UPDATE 6:17 PM ET: Cops say they have charged Badu with disorderly conduct and will mail her a citation. Badu faces up to a $500 fine.

Why do you people think nudity is bad? It is your screwed up hypocrites that are always ready to judge what is right and wrong through your media fed perceptions. Nudity is NOT bad! It is natural and beautiful! We are such an uptight society it makes me sick!

----29. HAHAHA. $500
I'm sure the 500,000 to a million extra CD's she sold doing this stunt will help her pay the fine.

Yeah,.....and entered on her permanent record, forever filed on the net for her children to see, and the VERY real possibility of being listed as a sex offender since there was at least one minor child there. The actual "cost" is WAY beyond $500.

You can't run around naked in public, no matter who are you. Period.
It's the law. Saying "it's for art" does not make it legal.

wwwwooooww $500, she's gonna go broke! Gimme a break. Some people just need validation to make themselves feel important like they really did something. Why go to the police with this sh**? Isn't there more important things to report like violence & murder in Dallas?

I have never heard of her until this. I think a misdemeanor in exchange for a few million dollars is not a bad deal. Hell give me 500,000 and I will streak times square and take the charges, but then again I am a nudist
