Today’s item by Village Voice staff writer Anna Merlan has three blog content tags. The one that jumped out to us: Breasts.
Merlan’s exclusive interview with Bruce Willis and Demi Moore‘s daughter Scout about this week’s Instagram brouhaha is also filed under ‘Celebrities’ and ‘Protest,’, but if you click the ‘Breasts’ tag, you will get a fascinating refresher on other recent topless matters. From Merlan’s article:
The [Instagram] deletions were particularly galling for Willis because she had a breast reduction surgery several years ago, and has only recently come to feel comfortable with her body.
“It was one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had. It completely changed my relationship to my body,” she says. “I felt so empowered and love my breasts so much. I don’t feel like wearing a bra.”
The photo that got Scout deactivated from Instagram was actually one of a bomber jacket she designed featuring two of her friends, topless, on the back. All in all, this whole thing reminds that in the realms of both social media and social mores, we still lag far behind large swaths of continental Europe. Read the rest of the interview here.
