Why Does Miley Cyrus Want to “Free the Nipple”? — NSFW Photo

Miley Cyrus has nothing to hide. She’s proven that often during the past few months, stripping down for numerous performances and photos. We’ve seen her in a yanked up thong, hard-to-miss black pasties, and more latex two-pieces than we care to remember (not because she doesn’t look good but because latex two-pieces don’t exactly look comfortable).

Now Miley’s looking for a way for all women to bare it all, legally. In a recent tweet, the 21-year-old pop star had a simple message: “@freethenipple ❤️❤️❤️❤️ pic.twitter.com/f5B0MVRpmn.” In true Miley fashion, she includes a photo of herself holding up what appears to be silicon replica of that particular body part.

So what exactly is @freethenipple? Just the official Twitter handle for the “Nipplelution.” The link Miley includes sends you to a crowd-funding site for an independent film project headed by actress and filmmaker Lina Esco. “You have to be an activist to agree that it’s bullshit that a man can walk around shirtless on a hot summer’s day and a woman can get arrested for it?” asks one of the film’s interviewees.

It’s a point Miley herself has made. “Guys get to show their titties on the beach. Why can’t we?” she asked during a BBC Radio 1 interview last month. “I don’t understand the double standard of life.”

But Miley does understand how to get publicity. Enjoy the Twitter-tention, @freethenipple.
