Everyone had speculations when it was announced that Azealia Banks’ upcoming cover for Dazed & Confused was going to be banned in seven countries. She has what in her mouth? How racy is it, really? Will American stores cover the issue up?
Now the magazine has been released, and it’s about what everyone expected. On it, Banks is blowing up an…interesting choice of devices, and you can finally see the controversial cover by clicking here!
We see levels of nudity on the covers of magazines every day…yet this photo of a fully-clothed woman goofing around with a safe sex object is getting covered up. It sounds kind of silly to me, but I imagine that in 20 years a cover like this will be no big deal. But, hey,now both Azealia and Dazed and Confused are getting tons of publicity, which certainly can’t hurt! [via High Snobiety]
What do you think of this cover? Should it have been banned?
