Australian band sparks outrage with nude photo shoot
Los Angeles: Australian pop punk band 5 Seconds of Summer have come under fire after its members posed naked for a magazine cover.
The band's members -- Luke Hemmings, Calum Hood, Ashton Irwin, and Michael Clifford -- posed for the January issue of Rolling Stone magazine.
However, fans have been left reeling due to the content of the band's interview in the issue, with some even suggesting it can’t be true due to it’s shocking nature, reports mirror.co.uk.
In particular, comments made by Hemmings about having sex with lots of girls while on tour has caused upset.
Confused fans took to Twitter to question the interview.
One wrote: “Sitting here and wondering what 5SOS' publicists were thinking when they approved this Rolling Stones feature.”
Others suggested it has been taken out of context, adding: “Why do I feel like the whole 5SOS Rolling Stones article was taken way out of context and no one will confirm it for us.”
While others just hope the whole thing is fake.
“I really really hope that Rolling Stones article is fake BC if not then the reality of 5sos being nice guys is dead for real," wrote a user.
