As is the custom these days, Minaj took to Twitter to voice her frustration. She set off a firestorm when she implied that her lack of nomination was a result of unfair discrimination. I can, however, appreciate the cultural conversation that her comments have sparked.
The Roar singer urged her fellow pop stars to stop being so naked, but country music star Shania has insisted they should be free to flaunt it. Shania Twain has insisted Katy Perry's claims female pop stars should cover up is a load of rubbish. The country singer has defended her fellow stars and their right to push their own boundaries.
KATY Perry thinks too many singers are getting their gear off lately and has urged fellow female pop stars to 'put it away. Speaking to US radio station NPR, the year-old singer admitted she thinks too many female artists are getting nude too often. We know you've got it, I've got it too.
Katy Perry stopped by NPR this week to promote her latest album, "Prism," and play a few songs off of the record.

Cyrus, who was 20 at the time, joined a handful of models who had previously posed for the campaign.
From Marilyn Manson to Britney Spears, from Iggy Pop to Peaches; there are a plethora of stars in music who like nothing more than to get their kit off and appear nude. Here we look at 50 musicians that have either got naked, semi-naked or expose so much flesh that they leave very little to the imagination. Be warned, there are a few cases of full frontal nudity!!
What was unthinkable 50 years ago is now becoming relatively commonplace. But why do they do this? Is it just because they love to get naked?
