The topless shoot is in this month’s Cosmopolitan and is published ahead of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
You may well think that you have seen this topless pose before and you would be right although the last time you saw it was probably with a topless Janet Jackson on the cover of Rolling Stone in 1993. On that occasion Janet had the hands of her then husband Rene Elizondo Jr cupping her breasts.
For Mel B’s photo she has also followed Janet’s example and it is her husband Stephen Belafonte (no relation to singer Harry Belafonte) who has his hands cupped round the Spice Girl’s boobs in the photo.
The campaign is organised by charity CoppaFeel! which says that knowing your boobs could save your life. Do beware though that the CoppaFeel line may not work if you use it on strangers you like the look of!
Spice Girl Mel B has always had a lot of fans for her boobs and even has a Facebook group devoted to her cleavage. She says that the campaign is important to her personally as she found a lump in one of her breasts when she was 17-years old. She says that ever since this episode she now checks and double-checks for any problems.
In the interview in Cosmopolitan Mel B lets slip a few secrets of the Spice Girls in private. “Me and the other Spice Girls are always having a feel of each other’s – Geri came up behind me and grabbed mine the other day.”
Joining Mel in another topless shoot is Hollyoaks actress Jorgie Porter who has enlisted boyfriend James Atherton to help out with the breast feeling duties.
The full set of photos and interviews are in the October edition of Cosmopolitan which goes on sale tomorrow (13 September).
