Original Cover Artwork of Hot In The City Originally released in 1982 but a bigger hit when re-released in 1987, Billy Idol's 'Hot In The City' was also used in the feature film 'Big'. It seems reasonable to presume, from the cover, that Mr Idol was indeed rather warm as he is not wearing any shirt. The picture of the topless Mr Idol with his big medallion and his bejeaned legs spread as if to invite the viewer to examine his crotch will have no doubt made many females at the time 'Hot In The City'. The city in question, incidentally, appears to be New York as this is the city whose name is yelled part way through the song. A 'Rebel Yell' perhaps?

Original Cover Artwork of Hot In The CityThe lyrics to Mr Idol's song scream, 'You know that it's Hot in the City tonight'. Thank you to Brent Gdzinski of Charleston, SC, who supplied this alternative version of the cover. In Brent's words:
I felt that if it was as hot in the city as Mr Idol made out, the ladies of the said city would keep cool by walking the streets naked. Indeed, this has proved to be the case as I went out in the city the other night when it was hot and saw this lady trying to keep cool. I thought it would make a fitting cover.

Brent has a point there, and we thank him for his submission and look forward to seeing what results from the next hot night in Charleston.

On The 6 - Jennifer Lopez

Original Cover Artwork of J Lo On The 6 The cover of Jennifer Lopez's (J-Lo to her fans) 1999 album 'On The 6' features none other than Ms Lopez herself kneeling on a cream colored sofa in a tight fitting t-shirt and skimpy gold shorts. One can't help wondering whether Ms Lopez got the idea for the gold shorts from Ms Kylie Minogue who made such attire famous in her video 'Spinning Around', though as Ms Minogue's video was released the year after Ms Lopez's album, it is possible that it was Ms Minogue that committed plagiarism having seen Ms Lopez's album cover in a record shop. Of it's possible that we should be so lucky and that it could just be a happy coincidence.

Cover Artwork Remix of J Lo On The 6 What is little know about the particular photo shoot at which the album cover for 'On The 6' was produced is that the sofa on which Ms Lopez is kneeling was also being used for two other photo shoots at the same time. The photographers didn't want the expense of hiring in the sofa on another date and so used the prop multiple times.

The first alternative shoot that was going on was for this very buxom latin lady (one wonders if she is a friend of Ms Lopez) who, it is clear, would not have fitted into the t-shirt that Ms Lopez was wearing. In fact it is questionable whether she would fit into any t-shirt that wasn't specially elasticated to contain her boobs. Perhaps, therefore, she walks around topless like this all the time to avoid the cost of buying such a costly bespoke t-shirt.

Cover Artwork Remix of J Lo On The 6 Down the other end of the sofa was another pretty girl who was also having her photo taken. Given the size of her boobs, she would definitely have fit into Ms Lopez's t-shirt, however like the latin lady above, she isn't wearing one. Perhaps the photographers, having splashed out on hiring the sofa, didn't have enough money left to buy a second t-shirt. Or maybe Ms Lopez was being a bit precious about her t-shirt and didn't want to lend it to the pretty young model kneeling further down the sofa. It seems whatever the reason, she was left with no panties to wear either but oddly she does appear to have a pair of high heel shoes to wear. As Ms Lopez is not wearing shoes, perhaps she was generous enough to give hers to this model, though it hardly covers anything and would certainly have not helped her keep warm. it is to be hoped that the studio concerned have learnt their lessons and will be better equipped with clothes in the future. Or then again, maybe not.

Power - Ice-T

Original Cover Artwork of Ice T Power The cover for Ice-T's album 'Power' is already one of the sexier covers around and caused a stir at the time. According to WikiPedia:
The album cover, photographed by Glen E. Friedman, was the subject of controversy upon its original release, due to the provocative pose of Darlene Ortiz, Ice-T's girlfriend at the time.

Ms Ortiz was obviously the one with the 'Power' given that she is stood holding a whip and although she hasn't gone for the full dominatrix outfit (the white slingshot bikini not being normal mistress clothing), you get the impression that she has the upper hand over the two hapless rappers.

Cover Artwork Remix of Ice T Power Time has moved on and Ms Ortiz is no longer Ice-T's girlfriend so the time is surely right for Ice to take back the power. Ms Ortiz has therefore been replaced by two similarly attired black beauties whose poses suggest that it is Ice-T that has the power now. With one flick of his wrists he would be nicely positioned between two topless busty babes.

Mind you, surrounded by those two, even Ice-T might find their powers of persuasion difficult to turn down!

Spacer - Sheila & B. Devotion

Original Cover Artwork of Sheila B Devotion Spacer OrFrench band, Sheila & B. Devotion (sometimes mistakenly called 'Sheila B Devotion') hit the charts in 1979 with the disco classic 'Spacer'. The song has since been sampled extensively by, for example, Alcazar in their hit 'Crying at the Discotheque'. The original cover for the single is shown on the right. It features a pretty blonde in a very 1970s disco outfit of red and white trainers, 'bobby socks' and a matching red and white sleeveless baseball t-shirt. She is kneeling or squatting down on a beach, drawing in the sand with a stick.

Cover Artwork Remix of Sheila B Devotion Spacer The 1979 version of the cover was probably quite erotic and sexy for its time, however in the 2010s, it seems a little bland and so it has been update in line with modern maxims. On the right is an updated, and much sexier, version. This time the girl on the beach is naked (but nothing is on show that you wouldn't see in a tabloid newspaper) and is in a similar pose, although she seems to have lost the stick with which to draw in the sand. She looks just as happy as her 1979 counterpart despite her being in the nude. Perhaps she is thinking, "Now, where did I leave my bobby socks...?"
