"The female body is a beautiful thing, and it should be embraced and celebrated," the model told Ocean Drive magazine. "There's nothing wrong with being comfortable in your own skin. If anything, it can be really beautiful."
"I grew up going to nude beaches with my parents, so I’m a nudist," she told Ocean Drive magazine. "I have no problems with nudity at all. I’m very free. When I go to the beach, it’s in a very remote place where there are not a lot of people, and I like to go topless."
"Some people were outraged because I am a mom, some people were so supportive. I just think it looks good, I am really not trying to cause a reaction," she said of the now infamous selfie. "If you are conservative and that's how you are comfortable, more power to you. I respect you. You don't have to look at what I do."
"Instagram is making me block out my body in my new single's promo pic even when the uncensored version follows the community guidelines,” she captioned the snap of her naked body. "Yet, millions of other FULLY NAKED pictures on popular Instagrams are left up [and] accepted.”
She continued, "I have followed the community guidelines: No exposed buttocks, no fully exposed female nipples, no exposed genitals OR sexual intercourse. Shaming a woman who is proud of her body [and] is also following the community guidelines, is indeed wrong."
“You have school age kids why would you post a photo like that? How embarrassing would it be for one of your children’s friends to pull up this picture and show it to them," one follower commented on this sexy snap.
