Across the pond Brooke Shields is causing a commotion at the hoity-toity Tate Modern. The nude photograph of the actress at age 10 was to be part of a new salacious exhibit, which of course was met by the sighs of both children's advocates and religious groups, according to the Daily News. One outraged critic told them, "Putting a sign on the door like that means every pedophile in the land will head straight to that room." The Man agreed, and it's being reported that officers from the obscene publications unit of the Metropolitan police have taken it down. The photograph hung in the Guggenheim just two years ago, and features a "nude ten-year-old Brooke Shields, heavily made-up, standing in a bath." It actually is rather disturbing.
