‘Closer’ Magazine Editor Defends Decision To Publish Kate Middleton Topless Photos
But Closer Editor, Laurence Pieau, feels strongly that she did nothing wrong. “These photos are not in the least shocking,” she told the Agence France-Presse on September 14. “They show a young woman sunbathing topless, like the millions of women you see on beaches.”
Pieau says the outrage over the photos being published is “disproportionate.” She says, “It is a young couple that has just been married. They are in love. They are beautiful. She is the princess of the 21st century.”
She also goes on to say that Kate was on the balcony in plain view from the road below. She says they are “full of joy and not degrading.”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Were the pictures inappropriate to publish?
