Nigerian top model and actress Beverly Osu has reacted to her controversial Nun Outfit photoshoot on the cover of Taylor Live Magazine.
On the cover of the magazine, Beverly rocked a sacred nun’s outfit baring her cleavage while holding a cigarette stick in one hand and rosary in another hand.
Reacting to criticism of her photo shoot, the actress on Tuesday said she is Catholic and as such, she takes the faith seriously.
Osu also defended smoking in one of the pictures, saying, “reverend sisters and fathers smoke”.
She said the photo shoot was “a mere work of art,” describing the images as “harmless”.
“I am a born and practising Catholic so I know and take (our) faith seriously,” she wrote on Instagram Live.
“People should rather worry and pray for the hundreds of thousands of innocent victims that are raped and abused by priests all over the world particularly over 1000 victims raped by over 300 priests in Pennsylvania than worry over a harmless picture that is a mere work of art.
“In any case, reverend sisters and fathers smoke in real life which has not been established as sin to my knowledge.
“Dear Nigerians, I don’t do what I do for your applause. If this images came out from a movie, will it be ok?
“It’s funny how you all just sinned because of a beautiful artistic picture. Lol. I laugh in Hebrew.”
