The singer, who is from Dallas,  performed a walking striptease on March 13 for her "Window Seat" music video.

In the music video, Badu walks in front of the Texas School Book Depository - where the shots that killed Kennedy were fired from. She strips as she walks down the street, and is "shot down" - totally nude - not far from the spot where the fatal bullet struck Kennedy.

On her Twitter feed, Badu says the video was "shot guerrilla style" - that is, without the permits that are usually required to do a video on a city street.

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 random passers-by seen on the video.

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