I know you're thinking, "Sure, but you are old and had four babies and are not tan so no one wants you to pose nude." You make a fair point. But even if I were young and in demand, I still wouldn't do it. I don't know why so many people do. Movie stars, especially, are stupid. They always claim to do provocative photo shoots to show that they are grown-up women now. Why not just be a grown-up woman? Ashley Tisdale is the latest I've heard of--I don't exactly Google that sort of thing like some people, people who will now turn up this blog post on their seedy Google searches, SURPRISE!
But here's something I think is even sadder. Check out Corbin Bleu's reaction to the news about Ashely Tisdale. His initial reaction is shock! And then he recovers and says, "Good for her," and "I'll have to check it out," as some kind of show of support. Isn't that a weird kind of support? I think society is so weird. It's twisted from what I would expect--that the tempered response would be disapproval after an initial outburst of glee. The politically correct, supportive, friendly, cool, non perverted, "nice," thing seems to be to say that you will have to go and check the naked pictures out, as if someone just told you they posted a pictures of their kid's ballet recital on Facebook. "Oh. Thanks. I'll have to check those out."
It's kind of how J Geils felt when his angel was a centerfold.
But it's not just me. Emma Watson marvels, "What an incredible position to be in, to be able to follow my own path ... I'm never going to have to take my clothes off." Some people who were aghast at the Hermione/Harry imaginary love scene in Deathly Hallows part 1 might think Emma is being a hypocrite here but even I'm not that big of a prude. (Remember, that watery, silvery, kissy vision came from Voldemort!)
Just something to think about when you get your ultra sound and find out you're having a girl. Or a boy.
