You know, I remember a time when celebrities were not always naked. No, really, I do. I remember Demi Moore being naked on the cover of Vanity Fair and covering her breasts and it being a big, huge deal. Admittedly, she was pregnant at the time, but I also remember when Vanity Fair – which by that point was just sort of arbitrarily photographing everyone who was famous naked – had a cover of naked celebrities and Rachel McAdams refused to do it. I remember that being a controversy at the time (though now, I barely remember Rachel McAdams).
Time has passed, and now I’m shocked if a celebrity hasn’t appeared on the cover of a magazine shielding her breasts with one hand. What I’m saying is – I’m surprised that people are still excited about Lady Gaga being naked on the cover of V Magazine. But they are! Of course they are.
Little Monsters have been trying to contain themselves all weekend long.
One reason is the above nude snap of Lady Gaga, released on Instagram and Tumblr by fashion photographers Inez van Lambsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, otherwise known as Inez & Vinoodh. According to the Dutch duo, there’s plenty more to come — the sizzling photo shoot is for an upcoming issue of V Magazine.
You know, it’s a nice picture. She looks lovely in it. Still, I miss the days when we obsessed over what celebrities were wearing, rather than how perky their breasts looked when they strategically held one arm over them.
