Magazines Show Off A LOT Of Body

Lady Gaga - V magazine

Nudity on the cover of a magazine is intended to create buzz, and in turn, sell newsstand copies. But it can take many forms. From the funny to the artistic to the totally bizarre .

Just in time to promote her new album, Artpop (which comes out later this year), Lady Gaga appears on not only one, but four covers for V Magazine’s Fall 2013 issue. The covers convey editorial and provocative connotations, featuring various views and opinions. In the first look, Gaga clutches her naked left breast and is scantily clad in a red sequined blazer and an unbuttoned pair of jeans.

Lady Gaga, reigning queen of pop, pop-art, and #ARTPOP, was photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin for the September issue of V Magazine.

And Lady Gaga is not our only celebrity getting naked and showing some body. The not so little Miss Miley Cyrus recently starred in a raunchy new photo shoot, again for V Magazine, baring her butt and breasts in an array of risqué outfits. Former Disney star Miley Cyrus looks a far cry from her “Hannah Montana” days as she shows she is now ALL grown up. The actress and singer graces three covers rocking a colourful sheared hair cut and athletic gear.

Miley Cyrus got down and dirty for V magazine's summer issue.

But V Magazine is not the only mainstream magazine getting naked, with over 40 magazine covers featuring famous celebrities in the buff, I think it really puts into perspective how provocative this intention to create a buzz with the general public may be.

After years of publications the Rolling Stone Magazine have even played part in illustrating the statement ‘Sex sells all’. I think it really puts into perspective how provocative this new True Blood cast cover of Rolling Stone is. Not only does it feature multiple nude celebrities, but the image is extremely suggestive, rather than silly or playful, which is usually the case in the rare instance of male cover nudity.

Rolling Stone introduce the new True Blood Cast - a little different to the regular approach for a TV series.
