But after seeing some rather revealing spreads of Mariah Carey lately, I'm reconsidering.
I thought the first pic of her painted tummy with a butterfly was actually cute. She's not the first to use an expanding belly as a canvas, and she certainly won't be the last. I've seen shows where women have gone and had a cast made and painted, and then proudly hang it along with pictures and other mementos of their pregnancy. It's not for everyone, but it definitely has a market out there.

Even though her hair covers her breasts, we are still seeing a whole lot of Mariah, which is saying a lot given the songstress' preference for wearing dresses straight from the tween section of Justice. We even get to see that black line thingy that appears during pregnancy which I personally don't understand, even after consulting with a book and a website on pregnancy. All I know is I have it and it looks really weird.
Anyway, today I caught sight of Mrs. Cannon's latest picture, and she has brought the mister along to perform the work of a bra (maybe her hair was tired?). Now, I don't find the pregnant female form offensive in the least bit (well, maybe just a bit when it comes to my form), but this is a bit much, even for me. So I was curious... what do you think? Is this picture sweet as "Honey" or making you recall the words of the late Biggie Smalls, as in "Mariah Scary"? Do you think pregnant ladies should keep their bellies ensconced in Motherhood gear at all times? Or maybe just keep the photos to the family album?
