The singer Erykah Badu has been charged with disordely conduct by Dallas police after stripping naked in a public square while filming her latest music video.

The R&B artist took all of her clothes off in the middle of the day in Dealey Plaza, where JFK was assassinated in 1963, for her new song "Window Seat".

She can be seen walking through the square removing her t-shirt and pants followed by her underwear, while curious passers-by look on.

The singer then falls to the ground to the sound of a gunshot.

"The City attorney's office and the Dallas Police Department has decided to charge the entertainer known as Erykah Badu with disorderly conduct," a police spokesman said.

"After much discussion we feel that these charges best fit her conduct when she disrobed in a public place without disregard to individuals and small children who were close by."

The police spokesman said they have received calls from people across the country complaining about her behavior and a citation will be issued shortly.

"She can pay the fine, send it in and then the issue will be resolved," the spokesman said.

The Dallas native and mother of three has defended her actions saying that the events have been misconstrued.

"I would never disrespect JFK," she wrote on Twitter. "his revolutionary thinking is my inspiration. my performance art has been grossly misinterpreted by many."

The video was filmed on March 17.
