what bothers me though is how on earth this could be considered controversial enough to get banned. I mean, what's so shocking about it? much ado about nothing.
I don't like the rest of the ed that much, although they're not bad. it's just I'm a bit surprised that Hamza shot it as usually his style is a bit more sophisticated (on the other hand, usually he shoots for VOGUEs etc.). the 3rd pic would make a good cover but I hate the pic with lollipop, it's just terrible.
There is nothing shocking about it (no matter how tacky/tasteless/imho pathetic it is), surely a cover with a woman blowing up a condom isn't something you want young impressionable girls/boys to see on the newsstands of their local newsagents or shopping centres. There are standards some people would like to maintain in terms of what is exposed to the public in the name of fashion/publicity, I understand the ban.
