I have been saying it since I found out about this band a few years back... In This Moment's singer Maria Brink is my celebrity crush. Yes, above Jennifer Anniston, Mila Kunis, and all those other movie stars and models. There is something about this chick, and I love whatever it is. So, when I found out she was posing nude, you can bet that it made my day, week, and month! 

In This Moment

The artwork comes from the band's new single, “Whore.” Brink created the phrase “Women Honoring One another Rising Eternally” to give new meaning to the term and try to take away from some of the derogatory connotation of the word.

Brink says, “This is an honest and raw movement that needs to be heard! The message behind this song is taking back control. It is about taking the power from a disgusting and degrading word and turning it back around on the accuser. It’s about self empowerment, love, and liberation.”

On the subject of the artwork (pictured above), Brink continued, “I decided to pose nude for the visual art for ‘Whore’ to evoke a raw vulnerable emotion. The word ‘whore’ written down my back, and the dunce cap symbolize me placing myself on the stake for those who are suffering and I can only hope to encourage at least one person to find the self worth and love they deserve to transcend out of a painful situation into a beautiful one. It is about finding our power and taking a stand. We are resilient beings and need to realize our incredible strengths. I will not bow down to others perceptions of me. I will only rise in the name of art, love and music.”
