Pop Stars In Nude Bodysuits: Trend Or Foe?

Is she naked onstage? No, it's just another double-taking nude bodysuit! At the 2000 MTV VMAs, a 19-year-old Britney Spears shocked audiences when she stripped off her clothes to reveal little more than rhinestones and nude fabric. (Admit it, it took you a good few moments to realize there was fabric). Now, more than a decade after Britney's wardrobe trickery, the nude bodysuit has returned full-force on the pop star scene. Are these new renditions of Spears's VMAs look a pop trend or pop foe?

Britney Spears Nude Body
Behold, the original sparkly nude look! Britney Spears sizzled the rhinestones off her incredible body with an unbelievably sexy performance of "Oops...I Did It Again" at the 2000 MTV VMAs, proving once and for all that the bubblegum singer was "not that innocent."

Pink Nude Body
A decade after Britney Spears's VMAs outfit shocker, Pink flaunted her Olympics-worthy body in a look that mated Britney's nude VMAs getup and Cher's "Turn Back Time" barely-there electrician's tape outfit for her death-defying, aerial performance at the 2010 Grammys. Again, rhinestones seem to be the only thing keeping the singer from being completely exposed, but given the gymnastic emphasis of her act, a skin-tight bodysuit was a must!...

Jennifer Lopez Nude Body
Singer Jennifer Lopez bedazzled her unmentionables at the 2011 American Music Awards, thus garnering immediate comparisons to Spears's look. Britney and Pink at least had straps and/or flared pants to make their outfit look more, well, there, but Lopez's outfit left very little to the imagination.

Mel B nude body
Mel B of the Spice Girls was slightly more covered-up than previous nude bodysuits, rocking one that had a more even, less "strategic" spattering of sequins at the 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony

Jessie J nude body
Here's a two-fer! British pop star Jessie J rocked not one, but two nude bodysuits at the 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony in London. Probably the most "covered" of all the bodysuit-flaunters here, the singer started with a nude leotard adorned with black flowers, then moved on to a bodysuit that was half nude fabric and half nude-tinted sequins

Katy Perry Nude Body
And now for the nudest of the nude suits! Katy Perry was caught off-guard when she won an award at Canada's 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards immediately after her performance, with no time for an outfit change. The singer quipped that had she known she'd win, she would've worn more clothes! Ironically, her award statue looked like a black censor bar, and Katy appropriately used it to cover her behind as she scurried offstage!
