I find it tediously 'look at me' self-promoting, via calculatingly pushing taboo social boundaries. What is the end point of the cause, that people should be allowed naked anywhere in public? ['Oh no, it's about being paid US$50k to appear on the front of a magazine so they can make loadsa-$ from stoking a controversy.... :roll: ]

Jeez, as if we haven't enough of a social mental tax what with Kartrashian gets her tits out several times a day.

A point like this could be made with dignity, but this isn't aiming to do that at all, quite the opposite in fact, the point is very much the manipulated means to the end-goal of $$$s.

It's like a far more calculated and polite version of what the Sex Pistols did. The band were the disposable weapons, but their manager Malcolm McClaren became veeery rich off the back of his astutely fabricated project.

fixed.

add to that list that Miley Cyrus, Kanye West etc etc. the mantra is how can to push the boundaries of being obnoxious to generate maximum $$$.
The saddest part is many people actually want this.
