Update (3.30.10) Everybody & their mama is discussing Erykah Badu’s video. CNN is even covering it. They confirmed that although children were nearby, no one filed a complaint against Badu after the March 17 incident, Dallas Police Senior Cpl. Janice Crowther said. “But if we had had a call and would have caught Ms. Badu in the act of walking down the street taking her clothes off, she would have been charge with a Class B misdemeanor,” she said.
