A few weeks ago we got to see an absolutely gorgeous Jessica Simpson on the cover of ELLE magazine in an almost nude pregnant photo shoot, which closely resembled Demi Moore’s cover back in 1991.Over the years we have seen quite a few amazing nude celeb pregnant pic in magazines.
Jessica’s pic has caused a bit of controversy in Arizona as customers in a Safeway store have complained about finding the image offensive. As a result the grocery store in Tucson has resorted to covering up the almost-naked parts of the pic.
The April edition of ELLE featured a photo of Jess on its cover with one hand covering an exposed breast and another wrapped around her nude belly. A spokeswoman for Safeway has come out and said that the manager of the store on East Tanque Verde Road near Catalina Highway received “multiple complaints,” so the image was covered with cardboard to block any parts that might be offensive.
Geez! I was surprised to hear this given that we live in 2012 and in the United States. These sorts of almost-nude pregnant pics in magazines have been done for decades, and this picture does not have Jess fully exposed either, her body is strategically concealed with her hands revealing only her large, and beautiful, belly. There are WAY more offensive images of woman in magazines out there, open any “gentleman’s” magazine and take a peek at those! In my opinion those people that were “offended” by this image really need to rethink what exactly they find offensive about a beautiful pregnant woman showing off her bump. It is hardly pornographic!
What do you think, is the controversy warranted?
