A poster showing a naked and pregnant Britney Spears has been banned from Tokyo, Japan's subway, because bosses deem it "too stimulating" for young people. The picture, from the cover of the August (06) edition of Harper's Bazaar magazine, shows the singer naked, but protecting her modesty by covering her breasts with her arms and crossing her legs at the knee. The snap will appear in the magazine's Japanese edition in October (06), and a large advertising campaign across the country was planned. But Tokyo Metro bosses have ruled the picture too rude and a threat to the nation's young. An official says, "We thought some of our customers would find it to be overly stimulating". The poster will go on show, but censored below Spears' elbow, with a statement that reads, "We apologise for hiding part of a beautiful image of a mother-to-be".
