DALLAS (AP) — Singer Erykah Badu has paid a $500 fine and must serve six months of probation after stripping in Dallas for a music video done at Dealey Plaza, where President John F. Kennedy was fatally shot in 1963.

Badu, who's from Dallas, got out of a vehicle March 13 and did a walking striptease for her "Window Seat" music video. The video ended with a nude Badu acting like she was shot and falling to the ground.

Police in April cited her for disorderly conduct after a witness made a sworn complaint. A number of children were among the tourists and other apparent random pedestrians seen on the video.

Dallas city spokesman Frank Librio says Badu paid the fine Friday.

A spokeswoman for the singer did not immediately comment.
