5 Stars Who Won’t Take Off Their Clothes for Publicity

Miley Cyrus might be up for twerking in our faces as frequently as she can, but not everyone is happy about the idea of putting their bodies out on show just to get some attention or t0 boost their career. Some believe some celebrities have gone way too far and they believe that those stars don’t have respect for themselves because they’re exposing themselves just to make headlines and keep eyes fixed on them. Wanting to be acknowledged for their talents and not their racy dance moves or the fact that they’re willing to go nude, these celebrities won’t buy into the cheap gimmick that is flaunting their bodies for the world and they believe they can be much more credible without having to go so far, even if it’s not as shocking or attention-grabbing as the likes of Miley’s recent antics that have captured the world’s attention.

Joe says he isn’t into gimmicks like stripping off: “I’m not going to do that gimmick. It’s fine if other people want to do it but I wouldn’t feel comfortable taking my clothes off. I’m not that confident. There are other ways to be sexy rather than taking your clothes off.”

Rashida rants that too many female stars are taking their clothes off for attention: “[To women] let’s at least try to discuss the larger implications of female sexuality on pop culture without shaming each other. There’s more than one way to be a good feminist. Personally, I loved the Lily Allen ‘Hard Out Here’ video—a controversial send-up of tits-and-ass culture. She helped start a conversation. Let’s continue it. [To pop stars] Please stop saying you don’t want to be role models. Because, guess what: You are. You want to sell millions of albums? You want to sell out a tour? You depend on the millions of people who adore you. So maybe just consider some sort of moral exchange program, in the same way that carbon credits make people feel better about driving an SUV.”

Speaking on collaborating with Robin Thicke, Jessie admits she isn’t interested in stripping for the video: “No boobs. Not doing that. Even though Robin is really cool and I was thrilled he wanted to duet with me.’I’ll be getting paid a lot of money if they want me to dance around like the girls in the Blurred Lines video.”

Taylor doesn’t agree with wearing skimpy clothes: “It’s just a life decision. I like wearing pretty dresses and I like trying out new styles, but I don’t feel comfortable taking my clothes off. I wouldn’t wear tiny amounts of clothing in my real life, so I don’t think it’s necessary to wear that stuff in photoshoots.”

Katy doesn’t feel like she needs to strip off because it’s a cheap move: “I’m not talking about anyone in particular, I’m talking about all of them. I mean, it’s like, put it away. We know you’ve got it. I got it too. I’ve taken it off before and I’m not necessarily judging. I’m just saying sometimes it’s nice to play that card but also it’s nice to play other cards…I know I have that sexy card in my deck but I don’t always have to use that card.”
