Kim Kardashian was barely known until her sex tape with Ray J came out in 2007. To maintain public interest in her Kim K had religiously made sure that she appears nude regularly. It is her own form of publicity. Every celebrity has his own gimmick. Rap star 50 Cent uses beef to get people talking about him. For Kim Kardashian it is all about nudity. Celebrities just like her will always go nude because that’s their trick. It guarantees them publicity.

Nothing sells more than controversy” goes a popular saying in entertainment. Flaunting your birthday suit still possesses a strong amount of shock factor to get people talking. Celebrities have been known to pull the nudity move so that they can stir up controversy. And with controversy, public attention is on you. A celeb can now flip that controversy into something very positive.

So if you want to be a sex god or sex goddess the fastest way is to strip and show off what your mama gave you. Singer Jason Derulo has been a rising star. In his latest video ‘Naked’ he makes his female fans bite their lower lips as he strips and shows off his chocolatey ripped physique. Soul singer D’Angelo pulled this move years ago which turned him into a black sex god.

For some celebrities going nude to them is art. They love showing their bodies because they appreciate it.

The art of going nude isn’t still a thing in Nigeria because of societal and religious reasons. While some of our celebrities are embracing the trend it is still going to take a while for us to meet up with global trends.

Strutting your stuff and showing your birthday suit is big business in Hollywood for different reasons. It’s a business. It’s big business.
