If they want to do that and feel confident about it, then I think it is their choice. I just don't think they should feel forced to to earn more popularity for their bands. What really bothers me is that the men probably woudn't be put in a calendar like that,
If I sound like a feminist, it's because I am one. Very Happy

Hope this doesn't offend anyone.

If they want to put Tuomas topless in a calendar I wont complain Razz (Just remembered they did already in NW one Smile )

I really have no problem with the photos I guess it's more a problem with Metal Hammer only putting in women in proper revealing outfits. I really wanted Sharon to be in it as well Sad

Theres a calender behind me now with a Page 3 girl with her boobs out. It's not mine it's my dad's Razz and all respect to them if that's what they want to do. Go for it Smile I have no problem with it I see boobs everytime I open up the paper Razz I completely support the page 3 girls in the paper.

I just really look up to Sharon for the fact she didnt use her sexiness to sell the band. That is being a role model Smile

Why do I always sound like I'm on a rant Razz

As long as they are comfortable with it. Very Happy

I really do admire Sharon for the outfits she wears. Like you said Kellie, there's a difference between corsets and showing some leg than being in your underwear. Very Happy

Razz Amy have you seen the sauna pics of Tuomas? Plus I spent forever looking for all the brum pics as he had his top unbuttoned Fangirl

I do think Sharon is sophisticatedly sexy. She is so beautiful that really if she was in some revealing thing you'd look at her stunning face first Razz It really does give me so much respect towards her. Sex sells but she proves that you dont have to strip off to sell anything. You just need your talent.

I voted 'Yes, sure... why not?'. Reasons...

Sharon has a lovely voice and has got very far in her career. She sings about things that aren't to do with killing people, drugs, suicide being good and she doesn't include insults or swear words in her lyrics which is much better and I'd rather any kid of mine listen to WT than Theatres Des Vampires (I love TDV by the way).

Another reason is that you don't see Sharon is fishnets with giant holes in, a mini skirt, a bikini top, and big black boots prancing around on stage like some prostitute, then cutting her arm and giving her blood to fans, saying it will make them immortal. She actually dresses with class and like a decent woman should (as in all her boobs and other bits are covered). Also you don't see Sharon backstage with a bag of cocaine or ectasy (or any other drugs) going 'take it it's good for you'.

Finally Sharon has fought her way to become known in this world and shows hope and a sense of belief, this could help children and teens through their lives and show them the way forward.

Overall, I believe that Sharon is a PERFECT role model.

Sorry for the essay but I thought that it was much needed.

I definetly think she is.

She hasn't let fame and being a rockstar get to her head, she isn't full of herself or a diva or self centered. She seems so genuine and down to earth and honestly cares about her fans. And like pretty much everyone else has stated, she doesn't flaunt her beauty. She's absolutley gorgeous but doesn't show it all off and she's amazingly talented.

She's definetly someone you can look up to versus other rockstars or singers or models.

Eva Luna is so lucky Very Happy

She's so easy to admire. Truly one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet.

She's probably too nice for her own good Razz but just to think of how lovely she is and just such positivity she has makes me happy.

I actually don't think there is a better role model. I plan on making sure my brothers kids will know all about her and look up to her. I'll make them mini WT fans because WT will still be going in like 10 or 20 years time Smile

Haha. I was planning on doing the same thing XD That's funny.

But that just proves that she really should be the world's role model. If everyone were like her...Dear gods, the world would be such an amazing place.

Razz I think she would. I dont think anyone could actually be as genuine and nice as her. She's like the uber Sharon and everyone else would just be nearly like her.

We'd all still be looking up to her because she'd still be in WT. Just the world would be a nicer place.

I took this too seriously Razz

My brother isn't gonna want to leave his kids with me because I will brainwash them with WT Twisted Evil Their first word will be Sharon! I think Martijn, Ruud and Jeroen are a little complicated for babies. So is Within Temptation. Then maybe Stephen and Robert after.

I don't know if I'd try and force WT on my child...I'd want them to find their own love and inspiration. Nah, who am I kidding I'm going to try and engineer my child's life so everything will good...and that includes a daily dose of Sharoness.

Well I'll just enforce WT on my brother's kids. Well not force them but what else is going to be played at my house Razz Sharon is an amazing role model and I think the guys are too. They'll need someone to look up to and a good taste in music.

I dont want kids so my brothers will have to do. I just dont have a motherly gene. At all Razz But I'll play WT to my dogs Wink Seeing as my dog already loves them.
