Erykah Badu Pleads Not Guilty to Disorderly Conduct Charge


Yup: After starting off the month being charged by the Dallas Police Department with disorderly conduct for getting nude at Dealey Plaza while shooting her "Window Seat" video, Erykah Badu ended April by filing a not guilty plea to challenge those charges.

Happened last Wednesday, as a matter of fact--and it's flown somewhat under the radar, far as we're concerned. Especially after the hoopla surrounding the incident at its start. Maybe, though, that's because Badu's not really talking about it. Earlier this week, we reached out to Badu's publicists and Badu World team for comment and neither has been willing to offer up a statement about the plea.

Hell, even Badu's normally active Twitter account's been quite on the topic. But not all is lost. For instance, we did learn something about Badu from Twitter this week: She not only "totally" understands Larry David of Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm fame, but she also finds him hilarious.

See? Celebrities are just like us!
