R&B singer Erykah Badu is defending her controversial new music video.In the video, she strips off her clothes and pretends to get shot in the head not far from the spot where the fatal bullet struck President John F. Kennedy in 1963.

The video for her song "Window Seat" was filmed in Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas.

On Twitter, Badu said she would never disrespect President Kennedy. She says "performance art has been grossly misinterpreted by many."
