Morrissey Nude, Still Depressed
Heaven knows we're miserable now: the best we can do for you today is this picture of Morrissey and his band nude from the cover of the mope king's new single, "I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris." "In the absence of your touch," croons Morrissey, "And in the absence of loved ones/I have decided I'm throwing my arms around all of paris because only stone and steel accept my love." We're totally psyched, but if this sort of thing doesn't do it for you we suggest these semi-nude Swiss farmgirls, who posed for the 2009 Bauernkalendar to promote local agriculture, and perhaps as some sort of fertility rite.
