You can go to hundreds of websites on the internet to find nude shots of celebrities. The pictures you’ll see there come in all forms and sizes, and they’re acquired through a variety of methods. Sometimes it’s willing nudity as in Mr. Skin’s reposting of nude scenes. Sometimes it’s unwilling nudity as in that sketchy and immoral video where someone filmed Erin Andrews undressing through the peephole of her hotel room. We don’t cover either of those types of nudity here at Pop Blend. Call us crazy but we think you should actually have to sit through a movie to see the nude scene in context, and we also think invading someone’s privacy by illegally creeping in their private space is dirty and wrong. That being said, if you go on television or in a public place wearing an outfit that doesn’t cover up the goods, that’s fair game.
Such was the case with Jennifer Lopez during her appearance on the German television show Wetten dass…. Moving around, braless, in a free flowing top, the American Idol judge briefly let it all hang out, much to the surprise and probable delight of many viewers watching the variety show live. When is a nipple slip just a nipple slip and when is it actually news? I’d argue, if the person’s famous and it happened in a surprising or public context, there’s no differentiating between the two. That’s why movie nudity isn’t typically a worthwhile story, but Anthony Weiner’s erection is. Every major media outlet unabashedly reported Janet Jackson’s epic mishap at the Super Bowl, and Lopez’s blunder was largely the same thing, just on a much smaller scale.
The whole situation is actually very comparable to swearing. If someone swears during a movie replaying on HBO, that’s not news at all, but if that same person drops an f-bomb on Saturday Night Live or in some other venue where there’s no expectation of foul language, then that is news, as trivial as it might seem. Melissa Leo’s ill-advised f-bomb at the Oscars got everyone talking, but it wasn’t because she said “fuck”. She said “fuck” plenty of times in the movie she was nominated for. It was the context in which it was uttered that made it a story.
So, without further ado, here’s the shot of Jennifer Lopez’s wandering boob. To see more pictures, head on over to the German publicity outlet Bild.
