*Saturday night on The Wanda Sykes Show, singer Erykah Badu, now rapidly becoming synonymous as a performance artist, says her controversial music video, “Window Seat,” in which she stripped nude and feigned being shot at the site of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas, has been “grossly misunderstood” and was not intended to insult the late president.
“My point was grossly misunderstood all over America. JFK is one of my heroes, one of the nation’s heroes,” Badu said. “John F Kennedy was a revolutionary; he was not afraid to butt heads with America, and I was not afraid to show America my butt-naked truth.”
Meanwhile, as we reported, Badu, a Dallas native, will be fined $500 for disorderly conduct after a witness came forward saying she was offended that she and her two children saw Badu, 39, disrobe at Dealey Plaza during the March 13 shoot.
Later in the show Badu performed “Window Seat” and of course Sykes offered up her own stab at performance art better known as a paraody of Badu’s video. Check it out:
