Tove Lo Is Going To Continue Freeing The Nipple Whether You Like It Or Not
The musical warrior talks flashing in her (covered up) new Notion magazine shoot…
Tove Lo has addressed her desire to #FreeTheNipple, in the latest issue of Notion magazine, assuring fans her on-stage flashing is not a publicity stunt.
“I've been getting a lot of questions, especially in America, about why I've started flashing the audience at my shows and people are wondering if it's just to get more publicity and it's not that,” says the ‘Habits (Stay High)’ singer. “I did it to mess with people a bit I guess.
“Then all these people started saying 'it's good that you're standing up for things and that you're a feminist, but it gets a little too much'. Why? Because I care about something? Should I just be like 'no I won't have any feelings?' That's the thing, when you get too commercial people just want you to be this happy creature with no emotions or not care about anything that's important.”
Flashing forms a big part of Tove Lo’s chat with Notion, which also sees her star on one of issue 70’s five covers, as she talks about her ‘Timebomb’ video shoot.
“All these photos of my video shoot got released and everyone started covering up my nipples and calling me a w***e,” she says. “I can show my nipples if I f**king want to! Why is a woman's body so sexualised all the time? It should be my choice.”
