the word is that kaeshi of bellyqueen was approached by playboy for an upcoming “girls of bellydance” issue (well, decease it’s more than a word, i saw the newsletter too…). this, of course, brings up a whole raft of issues that come with modern american culture – is it exploitation? inappropriate? acknowledgement and acceptance? good clean fun? good dirty fun? access to mainstream media? perpetuating inappropriate sterotypes? good for business? bad for business? good for art? bad for art?
or, is it all just a scam?
