Erykah Badu caused quite the stir last month when she shed her clothes at the site of President John F. Kennedy's assassination while shooting a guerrilla-style music video for her latest single, "Window Seat." What will she do for an encore? Well, we expect she will remain fully clothed when she performs May 28 at DAR Constitution Hall. Tickets ($56-$76) go on sale Saturday at noon through Ticketmaster.
