People love attending music festivals for the entertainment, the food and festivities, and the loosening of inhibitions. To the latter point, Swedish pop singer Tove Lo decided to push the boundaries with her performance at Lollapalooza this past weekend, when she proudly stood up on stage and took off her top. It's not the first time she's done this at a show; Lo also flashed the crowd during her Coachella appearance this year.
The singer, who is best known for her 2014 track "Habits (Stay High)," and released her album Lady Wood last summer, told the Chicago Tribune that this won't be the last time she does it, either.
"To me, it started off as something positive, and it can be provocative without being bad," she said. "It's not dangerous; no one's getting hurt from me showing my [breasts]."
And, in a past interview, she told British music magazine NME about her mission to move past the boundaries between male and female nudity.
"In the media, whenever you see a naked woman it’s always sexualised, or to please someone else’s eyes," she said. "I want to get to a place where women can be naked the same way that men can—funny naked or naked just to be naked."
She also shared her thoughts on the troubling stigmas surrounding body image in our culture.
"We put so much pressure and emphasis on looks," she said. "People think it’s what they should be focusing on, but it’s really not. It’s OK not to be beautiful!”
No arguments there; hopefully, Lo's words are a source of empowerment and encouragement for her fans, as well.
