According to V Magazine, the new trend this spring is going topless — or that’s what it’s conveying on the newly released Spring 2015 cover. Selena Gomez is the magazine’s latest cover conquest, posing for Dutch duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, captured in their true photographic style against a gray backdrop inside the studio. Selena wears nothing but a pair of tight denim shorts from Guess and a ribbon in her tightly curled tresses.
Our forum members went haywire once the cover spread across the Internet. “The topless thing that’s been done since the dawn of time. Groundbreaking,” declared A.D.C., who was about to set the negative tone of the thread.
“She looks underage and I feel uncomfortable,” added Melancholybaby. This doesn’t look good for sales this month.
Sharing the same sentiments was Thefrenchy: “She looks like a child, that’s very disturbing.”
MON felt the same way: “Everything about this is lazy. Styling meh. The tagline… laziest ever. It’s her freaking song title and it’s gonna be used as her tagline? Uhm they can do better than that. The hair is all sorts wrong. The pose makes her head look round. She looks underage and this to me is like a child porn cover. It’s disturbing.”
“I add to the general sentiment that she looks like a child, they went for the whole Latina cliche and it backfired because of her childlike face imo. Her innocent, deer in headlights expression is not helping either,” kokobombon replied in agreement.
Forum member youarearockstar wasn’t feeling it, either. “That is one of the roughest covers I’ve seen in awhile,” he stated.
