Eurovision in Turin, leads Mika! Mammamia, the Maneskin are naked: the cases in football from Weah to Icardi | First page

The 2022 edition of Eurovision will be held at the PalaAlpitour in Turin from 10 to 14 May, with Mika TV presenter on Rai. Mammamia, the Maneskins are naked. The Roman band posed without veils (with only a few black stars covering their private parts) to launch the new single Mammamia, recorded live and released today. The song in English anticipates the new album by Damiano David and associates, Teatro d’ira Vol. 2, to be released by the end of 2021 and which will be followed by a Italian and European tour, Loud Kids On Tour, sold out on all its dates in less than two hours from the opening of presales. All over Europe, therefore, is Maneskin Mania, and even AS titled by citing the title of the song on the occasion of Spain’s victory against Mancini’s Italy in the semifinal of Nations League.

The provocative photos released on the band’s social networks have above all gathered consensus, but there are those who criticize them: someone scandalized, others accusing the band of excessive exhibitionism, still others (the pornstar Valentina Nappi above all, who commented: “Everything is messy and you can’t see anything“) for the self-censorship of the stars. In any case, the post in question reached 2 million likes on Instagram and, if we exclude the judgment on its meaning, the operation was certainly successful in the media.

After all, it is not the first time that one has to deal with rock stars without veils. The most famous case is that of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, which appeared naked on the front and back of the cover of Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins, Lennon’s first solo record. Even these shots, at the time, caused a scandal, so much so that EMI refused to distribute the album that, when it arrived in stores, it was placed in a paper bag. How not to mention, among others, Janis Joplin nude with necklaces photographed by Bob Seidemann, Iggy Pop in black and white on the cover of Little Caesar, the almost angelic one Alanis Morrisette in the video for Thank U, i Red Hot Chili Peppers with the sock on the cover of their Abbey Road Ep, i Blink-182 in the What’s My Age Again? video And, more recently, Miley Cyrus e Justin Bieber.

Even in Italian football there are cases of famous (almost) nudes. How not to mention that of the future world champions Cannavaro, Gattuso, Pirlo and Zambrotta for D&G in the spring of 2006. Then there is that, in 2018, of the still Inter fan Mauro Icardi, immortalized in the Maldives by Wanda Nara with just a baseball cap on her private parts. Or, again, the official 2020 Napoli calendar, with the players (including Llorente, Mertens, Koulibaly, Lozano and Insigne) covered only by a blue sheet to raise awareness on the issue of racial and social inclusion. Finally, we cannot fail to mention the funniest of the football naked moments: the All good? “by George Weah in the commercial for Roberts Noir in the 90’s.
