Britney Spears is Indecent, But Not in the Way You Think
The Tokyo subway people have refused to allow a billboard of a pregnant and nude Britney Spears. They have deemed the photo taken from Harper's Bazaar "too stimulating" for young people.
I love Japanese people! OMG the statement that is covering her grossness is so much better than the real thing. Japanese people are also known for being polite and they didn't deem it inappropriate because she's nude....they deemed it inappropriate because it's a nude Britney Spears. There's a BIG different. Like a 80-pound difference.
The picture of the pop singer -- nude but covering her breasts with her arms and crossing her legs at the knee -- appeared in the August issue of Harper's Bazaar and will be on the cover of the magazine's Japanese edition in October.
The publishers had hoped to display the cover photo for a week at a subway station in a trendy part of central Tokyo, but ran into resistance.
"We thought some of our customers would find it to be overly stimulating," said a Tokyo Metro official.Harper's Bazaar could not be reached for comment.
Not all was lost. The Metro and the publishers agreed to display the poster after all but masked the picture below the former teen idol's elbow with a statement reading: "We apologize for hiding part of a beautiful image of a mother-to-be."
