There is so much nudity on TV these days…I just sit there and shake my fist.
Nyambura Nyambura Nyambura…. Why did you put out or allow to have these nude, or semi-nude if we are going to split hairs, photos taken.
Maybe I should just try to answer that question myself…..
We live in a funny age, a time in which a boy who sings like a girl has 6,000,000 followers on twitter, that is six times the saintly Dalai Lama does, and he actually has something to teach this selfish world, this is an age in which supposedly masculine men are wearing nut-hugging jeans that their sisters would have to hop around like in a sack race to barely get into, an age in which the biggest pop star, Lady gaga, claims to be a dyke who may or may not be transsexual, a time in which it’s acceptable for Kanye to release pictures of his penis to promote an upcoming album.
Who has nude pics and sex tapes ever hurt really?
Kim Kardashian’s money spinning party hosting and now pop career was set on its way via a sex tape with C-list singer Ray J, Paris Hilton gained notoriety and fame and ultimately made money off a sex tape, nude photos of just about every singer who has fallen off badly are seemingly an acceptable way to revive interest in one’s career. Locally, Kaz never really lost anything, besides her dignity if you believe her, by having her nude photos “leaked” on the internet. She might even have gained a few fans who have a penchant for seeking out nudity as opposed to listening to afro-fusion.
So why are we surprised that Avril has some nude photos on some facebook profile aptly named “Avrils Nipols”? A girl has to try and jumpstart a fledgling career you know. After all in this fickle music industry that we have, where people are know more for bling than for actual talent, and where the most popular group basically puts out different songs with the same basic and weak concept (kushoto kulia, hapa kule, kare….. SMH!) who is to blame somebody who is sharp enough to know a picture is worth a thousand kapuka throw-aways.
I encourage more of our femcees and divas to embrace this new-age marketing gimmick, not, just, because I enjoy seeing nude photos or tapes, but because it is about the only way to catch the attention of a generation with hyper ADD. And am not surprised that the Avril photos have a lesbian twist to them, after all the most popular female rapper/autotune garbage peddler out now also pretends to be a bisexual.
Oh, Avril claims to have done the photos as part of a course in campus….. what campus? The L-Word University of sexology? Try again sister.
And thank you for the photos, I won’t be checking out your music though
