“Acting is secondary—I don’t feel like it’s going to stick around because it’s not something I want to do forever. My art has always been my top priority and I have far more experience in that field than I do in film. It’s hard to explain without sounding like a dick. I’m not that person. I’m really grateful for such enjoyable work, I just don’t feel as though I have any clout as an actor. I haven’t earned it, and I don’t intend to.”
–“Girls” Jemima Kirke, who’s currently pregnant with her second child in a new interview in Vice. There’s a very NSFW photo of Jemima — shot by photographer Richard Kern — baring her breasts and belly after the jump! [Vice]

I suspect National Go Topless Day on August 26 will be celebrated the usual way people celebrate things like National Go Topless Day, which is that the only people who will go topless will be those you would rather keep their shirts on. But if you live in Washington, DC., Seattle, Miami, Columbus, Asheville, Honolulu, Chicago, or other cities hosting an event, it’s time to keep a bottle of bleach handy for your eyes because there’s a National Go Topless Day rally coming to your city. (The official website helpfully shows you locations via a BoobMap with icons of boobies serving as pins. Seriously.) Keep reading »
Best excuse ever for not pulling over for a cop: “I couldn’t pull over because I was topless.” This was a Florida (of course) woman’s reason for speeding away from police when they attempted to pull her over for running a stoplight in her pickup truck. Thirty-five-year-old teaching assistant Mandy Ramsay was indeed driving around half-naked, but she claims she had good reason. She was on her way to surprise her boyfriend (or husband, it’s unclear) to whom the truck belonged. Well, that makes perfect sense. There’s no way you can take your top off once you arrive.
Anyhow, thanks to the magic of Facebook status updates, cops located Ramsay swimming in her backyard. She was arrested for eluding law enforcement. I’m going to go ahead and charge her with Gross Facebook Misconduct as well. Thanks for another great crime story, Florida! Keep ‘em coming. [Huffington Post]
A Miley Cyrus topless pic is not a reason to run through the newsroom screaming “Stop the presses!” This is, after all, a girl who posed topless in a photoshoot with her father in Vanity Fair magazine when she was 15. The blog LOTRAF claims the pic was supposedly taken as a “private” photo for her fiancé Liam Hemsworth by the photographer Vijat Mohndra. But it’s also posted in a photo gallery on Vijat’s web site, apparently as part of a larger photography project of Miss Cyrus, which doesn’t seem too “private” to me. Anyway, here is Miley and her dreamcatcher tattoo chilling out in a bath tub. Carry on, everyone! [Life Of The Rich And Famous]
When most people see Moira Johnston walking through the streets of New York, they probably aren’t thinking “freedom fighter,” they’re thinking, “That woman’s topless.”
But to Johnston, politics and breasts go hand in hand — although, truth be told, one is more preferable to actually hold.
The 29-year-old topless dancer from Philadelphia may be baring her breasts for money at night, but during daylight hours, she lets people view them free of charge in order to make a point about true equality.
“I want women to know their rights and to give them the courage to go topless too,” she told The Daily Beast. “It’s not that I want everyone to take off their shirt, but I’m supporting a woman’s choice to do it and think every woman should do it on her own terms.” Read more …
French Vogue‘s got the scoop — or rather the two scoops — of Gisele Bunchen’s butt on its latest cover. The topless supermodel poses with a sandy bottom on the June issue, showing off her perfect backside. What was it that Kelis said about her milkshake bringing all the boys to the yard? [Vogue]
