What is wrong with this picture? It is suppose to be a picture of Eva Pigford and the R&B singer, Maxwell. After a little research, very little research, I found out that the guy is only a Maxwell look a-like, but Eva is the real deal (from America's Next Top Model). Since I wouldn’t know Maxwell if he sat beside me on the city bus I have no idea if the bruh is him or not. Nor do I care. Nor do I care about the picture.

I see nothing wrong with the photo. I see it as just another peice of art. I think it is done in good taste. As a matter of fact, the people in it don’t even look real. Where the heck is Eva’s breast? I never knew she was so very flat chested.
The buzz around the picture is what is it's purpose? Why are they nude? Why are they on bales of hay? Why? Why? Why? Well, if this same image was of unknowns would the questions still be out there? Why can't it just be art? Real art speaks for itself or at least it allows to viewer to make their own judgments. Why is it that when you put people of any kind of celebrity in a picture there most always be a higher message?

Anyway, what do you think? Have you seen the picture? Do you think it is too graphic, because the Maxwell guy has his hand over Eva’s cootie-coo and his own crotch?

I personally find absolutely nothing erotic about the photo. Heck, even Eva’s breast or lack there of, are less than sensual. I mean, anyone who could get their rocks off to this picture had to have been getting boners when they undressed their sister’s Barbie doll to see if it was anatomically correct; because this is the photographic equivalent to nude Barbie and G.I. Joe.

-One Man’s Opinion. Peace.

Of course, it could be an aid for women's shoes. What do you think, VV?

OMG! I love this picture. I don't really feel like analyzing it because it is too early to be thinking, but this picture is hot. Very artistic and tastefully done.

Desy said...

hmmmmm... i will have to admit, i wondered at the purpose of the photo before anything else... but it didn't arouse anything from me. looking at it post reading, it just looks like an interesting pic... nothing moving (for me anyway if it is an artistic expression of something) but an interesting pic none the less... if nothing else, it is a conversation piece...

Q said...

I live! Eva is the ruler! Ever since she served us with that photo in ANTM with the tarantula I was a fan. If I had to hold a woman's crotch, I would hold hers...lol

Thoughts of a Southern gal said...

The photo is very interesting. I think I looked at it too long. LOL I don't see anything wrong with it.

One Man’s Opinion said...

As long as you can see all five of the brother's digits, I think it's all good, Q.

Stew said...

i have never seen the picture, and i honestly did not know that eva was supposed to be a woman. i was confused by the picture until i read what you wrote. there is not a damn thing wrong with this picture. the fact that she is virtually breastless makes it that much more ok.

people are stupid. they just need something else to talk about. looks like naked people are the hot button right now.

naijalines said...

Totally agree with you. Erotic, not.

Lol @ your comment on being able to see the brother's five digits. Where else would the digits be? You are bad!

I suppose if they'd wanted real controversy/publicity for this pic, they could have kept one of the digits hidden...Lol

RealHustla said...

I do not get the bales of hay. This man looks nothing like Maxwell. At first glance just I saw some dude jackin himself off while fingering this other girl. Not art. I was not aroused

Ieisha said...

I think Eva needs to eat. I shouldn't be able to count her ribs.

Past that, baby, do you. If I find it offensive, I'll stop looking.

But it seems cool. I can see the artistic quality in it.

fuzzy said...

I don't see anything wrong with it. Hell I didn't even recognize that they were celebrities!

BronzeBuckaroo said...

The guy ISN'T Maxwell! Yep, I wish he was though. The overall picture is quite interesting. For sure, a great deal of care went into the staging of it. What the photographer had in mind is anyone's guess. Though, I do see a metaphor in the image for blackwomanhood and those "stragiht" brothers who have not turned their backs to an admiration of it. My subjective interpretation is just one of many.

i thank she got no breast

Gotta Let it Out said...

This pic is very artistic to me...nothing sexual what so ever... I did however wonder if Eva's always been a negative A cup, cause I can't find them boobies!

Ms. Lovely said...

i would take a pic like this..but damn why does Eva have a bird chest!

One Man’s Opinion said...

Torrence....Gotta, can you believe that on some sites they had the nerve to cover Eva's boobies with little hearts/ I was like, "why"? Hommie got more cest than her. They might as well has covered his chest area. Hell!

Sha Boogie said...

Shit.

I didn't even notice she HAD shoes on until you mentioned it, LOL!!

I feel you -- makes me no nevermind.

She's naked witha hand over her love zone. Big deal...I do that in the shower when someone walks in on me, HAHA!

Darius T. Williams said...

I think the pic is nice - definitely not sexual though...at all.

FREEDOM said...

i think it is an ad for women's shoes...lol

FREEDOM said...

he got some long fingers...lol oops that thought was suppose to have stayed in my head...

FREEDOM said...

she's a model. model's aren't supposed to have big tits...lol

sorry for all the comments made separately..:)

If Only You Knew said...

her boobies don't look right. lol. Photoshop too much or something.

Linda said...

why why why.. just tell them why not :P I'd say.. they aren't nude.. at least she's wearing shoes.. *lol*

I'm with you on this one, they look like barbie dolls. To be honest, that chest scares me though ;) Just because.... it ain't there.. and apart from that, it's blurred as well.. so you can literally not see anything offensive..

ok, that's my 2 cents.. *lol* If this was in Europe, people wouldn't say anything about it. We have posters like these on big billboards along the highways. (which, ok, may be a little dangerous..)

greetings from holland! :P

Super Dave Van Buren said...

I'm disturbed by her lack of breasts. Besides that it looks pretty normal to me. She had a topless photo shoot before. nothing new here. People just want something to talk about.

Bygbaby said...

I do not find it erotic or sexy, and the slight androgyny of Eva makes we wonder the that artist is trying to portray here.

I had not seen the picture before this moment. I wouldn't know either Maxwell nor Eva if they sat next to me on the bus.

But I think this is a gorgeous photo.

Mark D. Aster said...

A little Photoshopping, and it becomes John Edwards and his ugly assed mistress!

Madam Z said...

I agree with you. This is a beautiful, artful photograph. I love the expression on the man's face. He looks like he is pleading with the woman. Maybe he's trying to convince her to put on some weight!

i think the boy oughta wash his left hand...

Ms Smack said...

Hot photo. Love it.
