Dallas, TX (AP) -- Officials in Dallas aren't crazy about the latest Erykah Badu music video, and it has nothing to do with her singing or her music.

The video shows her walking and stripping naked on the downtown street where President John Kennedy was gunned down in 1963.

The video is for the song "Window Seat." And it features Badu walking in front of the Texas School Book Depository -- where the shots that killed Kennedy were fired.

As she walks along the street, she takes off all her clothes and is shot down 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. A spokesman for the city says if guerrilla crews are found out, they'd face arrest and or penalties.
