It used to be, long ago, when it was just assumed that a female pop singer would show a little skin for the fans. This was the 80s and, to some extent, the 90s. Madonna was running around with no clothes on. Other female singers were talking about how much they liked to fuck as many men as possible.
Did the woke police freak out and tell us that this was taboo and somehow Not Allowed?
No. We, the audience, living our miserable existence just enjoyed it an moved on. It was no big deal.
I mean, fuck, people, if this was 1989, Dua Lipa would have done a full nude spread for Playboy by this point. The only artist I can think of off the top of my head that is willing to be cool like singer were back in the day is Charli XCX. She’s great.
She isn’t afraid to show a little skin. And it’s not like she’s done a featured spread for Playboy. She’s just not afraid to strut what she’s got when necessary.
And, what’s more, she’s a really good singer and I love her oeuvre.
