Pregnant Spears...too stimulating for Tokyo

Tokyo's subway initially refused to hang a poster of a nude and pregnant Britney Spears, saying it is "too stimulating" for young people.

The picture appeared in the August issue of Harper's Bazaar and will be on the cover of the Japanese edition of the mag in October. The idea was to display the cover photo for a week at a subway station in a "trendy part of central Tokyo"

"We thought some of our customers would find it to be overly stimulating," said a Tokyo Metro official. Solution? They agreed to display the poster but marked the photo below Britney's elbow with a statement reading: "We apologize for hiding part of a beautiful image of a mother-to-be"
