Erykah Badu Feared Kids Would Be 'Traumatized' By Her Naked Video Shoot
"There were children there. I prayed they wouldnt b traumatized. (People were) yelling, THIS IS A PUBLIC PLACE : YOU OUGHTA BE ASHAMED : PUT YOUR CLOTHES ON : DAMN GIRL! etc..." Erykah Badu on her controversial new "Window Seat" video, in which she strips off while walking along the Dallas, Texas street where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
Erykah tried to get arrested by cops during the shoot. She deliberately attempted to get seized by police officers for filming without a permit. The promo's producers, duo Coodie and Chike, even had bail money on hand to free Badu from the cells when the shoot was over - but the plan fell flat when local cops failed to notice the film crew.
