The Miss USA pageant hasn’t been in the news since the disgraced former Miss California/pageant runner-up Carrie Prejean expressed her views on gays, sparking media interest that turned up racy photos (and a boob job), resulting in Prejean being stripped of her crown. In a controversial move to drum up attention for this year’s pageant, which airs on Sunday, Donald Trump had these sexy-as-hell photos taken of all 51 contestants.
Donald Trump — who owns the Miss USA, Miss Teen USA and Miss Universe competitions — argued that Prejean’s sexy shots crossed a line that these Miss USA snaps don’t.
“Those were quite a bit different. There’s no open exposure [in the current Miss USA pictures],” Trump told The Post yesterday… ”I did see the pictures, and obviously, they’re risqué, but I also thought they were very artsy and very beautiful,” Trump said. [NY Post]
Whatever. Prejean is last year’s news, and the only thing that matters now is that someone had the good sense to photograph attractive young women wearing nothing but lingerie, heels, fishnets, and truckloads of eye makeup. These women are precisely the role models the young girls of America need. Listen to their message, girls. They’ll tell you all about how important education is. And education is important. Almost as important as trying to look like Brigitte Bardot.
