39 Comments

Singer hitomi, 33, has posed nude for her new album “LOVE LIFE 2” which goes on sale June 24. The shot, which graces the front cover, is one of hitomi taken in December last year, just before the birth of her first child on Dec 23.

“I wanted to be able to show my child as well the beauty of woman at her finest,” hitomi said. Her album “LOVE LIFE,” released in 2000, also featured the singer nude on the cover.

This was original back in 1991 when Demi Moore did it on the cover of Vanity Fair. Still kind of interesting when Britney Spears did it on the cover of Bazaar magazine in 2006. Now, it's a little old.

"Well, now there's a link I shouldn't have clicked"

Why's that?

it`s been done many times. it is no longer "new."

If fans here freak out when they hear that their favorite idol has a boyfriend, or is having sex, how does one think they would react positively to this, which is undoubtedly the result of both?

Something different and an attempt by a pop artist to embrace and show her life change rather than just go on hiatus for a few years. I wonder if the song content is as reflective?

The people saying they wish they hadn't looked at this link, are you saying there's something repulsive about this picture? How very shallow.

Beautiful.

But if that was taken 'just before the birth', it must have been a tiny little baby.

yes its been done before, but those that are uncomfortable or worse with seeing a pregnant woman need their heads examined.

Cleo yes the baby was probably small, even after almost 2decades here I still cant believe how small the tykes are here I am often off by 2-3yrs(guessing low)

Not a fan of the pregnant look, sorry.

Is anything musicians do really "new" anymore? This's better than your dime-a-dozen boring poses of band members or the AKB48 type "Hi, we can't fit all our members on the cover, so here's the important ones in tiny squares that still can't sing, play instruments, dance, or think for themselves but at least they're cute" album covers.

Very beautiful picture! Pregnant women look as beautiful as non-pregnant women. Those who hate to see pregnant women must think how your mom felt when she encountered men like you while you were inside her uterus.

By that definition no one should have any interest in photos of women in bikinis, as it's been done for 40 years. What makes this different?

I think the guys who are repulsed by this picture feel so for a number of reasons, usually- A. Pregnant women, beautiful as they maybe, remind them of thier own mothers and it is difficult for a lot of men to associate thier mothers with sensuality and sexuality. Or B. Centuries of religious dogma have conditioned many men to veiw pregnant women as off limits to thier fantasies, thou shalt not covet and all that. BTW Osakadaz, not to take anything away from your post, but I'm thinking it's totally different when it's YOUR bun in the oven.

this is a beautiful cover image, although not very creative.

I love Hitomi

Pregnant or not, hitomi is a site to behold in my opinion, and very sexy. Of course, this is more a 'natural' look, and beautiful.

The look has of course been done before, Demi Moore, I think, making it the famous cover shot so many have emulated since. But if a woman wants to do it herself, all the power to her.

Absolutely beautiful

Nice cover.Too bad her music sucks.

Isn't this a standard pose for pregnant women on a magazine cover?

Why cover some parts of your body when you are showing almost everything?

beavis at 06:43 AM JST - 3rd June Well, now there's a link I shouldn't have clicked

I have to say even with Hitomi this pose is getting a little old...

Try as I might, I can't get worked up about pregnant women. Was walking on eggshells when Mrs. Coughalot was expecting.

"Do I look fat in this?" "Look love, you're seven months pregnant. You's look big in a circus tent. Er, I mean, no, my darling, you look beautiful. I'm so proud. Please put the knife down."

Nothing else than a good copy...

dishdash, gotta agree. she's great to look at, but the narcissism involved, ala Demi Moore too, is getting a little old.

everybody look at meeeee. no, it's not enough? ok I'll take my clothes off, now everybody look at meeeeee. still not enough? ok I'll...

ok, i get it already. you want people to look at you. now stop trying to be the center of attention and start preparing to give all your attention to someone else for a change.

Yeah, my wife twice. And don't get me wrong, Hitomi is beautiful, even here. I guess I tend to suppress and reserve that admiration for the father to be though.

BTW; Thanks for your assumption of my age. Was just as good as getting carded while buying a beer! ;)

It all makes sense if you look at the album art for Love Life 1. She is nude on it too. I think she looks wonderful on both album covers, and I hope she had a happy and healthy baby.

Mark stop looking at women's body parts. It was original a couple million years ago and it's getting old.

That beauty is to be admired by the father to be. Not by every joker possible.

Well said Beavis.
