In This Moment’s Maria Brink Gets Naked For “Whore” Single

In This Moment frontwoman Maria Brink has decided to go nude for the groups new single “Whore“. The image released for the single can be seen below with Brink claiming she isn’t using her sexuality as a marketing tool.

In the past Brink has been quoted saying that she aims to take back the word ‘whore’, giving it the meaning of “Women Honoring One another Rising Eternally”. Speaking on her decision to forgo clothing in the below promotional picture, she stated:

“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.”

Band guitarist Chris Howorth added:

“One of the best things about the song ‘Whore‘ is all the feelings and thoughts that the word alone provokes, and that’s great, but at the end of the day, it’s just a word. The only power it really has is the power that we give it. It’s really just about taking the power back from the word, and when you get past all the controversy of the word, you have a bombastic rock and roll song with crushing guitars and huge drums that will have you screaming whore at the top of your lungs! Listen with your heart!”
