ummm as a person who shares the same culture as the little girls in the background, that picture is beyond stupid. eastern traditions and western sex-sells ideals should not be put together.

I am not a prude but the incongruity of this person dressed in next-to-nothing posing in front of likely 8 - 11 year olds is incongruous to say the least. Disgusting? Likely. It does not bode well for the young pre teens with whom she is posing. Screwed up values, false expectations, low level goals, etc.

Not much intellectual life, eh Jessica?  I suppose with looks like hers there's not much incentive.
