Britney Raises Eyebrows in Asia

The image displaying Britney Spears nude and pregnant on the magazine cover of Harper’s Bazaar has raised some questions in Tokyo, Japan. Japanese officials had originally planned to censor these pictures from being displayed in Tokyo subways. The heavily-pregnant Britney Spears pictured in the photograph for the fashion magazine Harper’s Bazaar shows her six months pregnant, covering her breasts above her swollen belly in a pose similar to that of actress Demi Moore’s iconic 1991 shoot for Vanity Fair. The Tokyo Metro had initially asked the publisher to cover Britney below the elbows since the sight of her naked midriff and thighs was considered inappropriate for impressionable Japanese youths and conservative commuters. After the word spread of the possible censorship, large numbers of commuters actually contacted the subway operator to request that this pop diva be displayed in her full glory. The fans’ victory was marked by her naked pose displayed at the Omotesando station on Monday.
