The Loud Kids Tour Finale
To celebrate the end of the Loud Kids Tour, the long European tour of Måneskin, Damiano David posted on Instagram a shot in which he shows himself completely naked, his intimate parts covered by a black heart, while sitting on a bed smoking a joint: “Tour finished: that means I’ll be naked smoking joints all day“, the caption accompanying the image. As expected, the nude shot has unleashed (and divided) the social world: while someone ironically asked Damiano to remove the heart on the intimate parts, and someone else praised the “artistic photo” and the singer’s physique, others did not spare him criticism. For example, there are those who called him an “exhibitionist” and those who let him know that his social nudes “have gotten boring”. Among the comments, the barrage of Lazza, a friend of Damiano: “You’re always showing your c**k, oh”. Words that some took as a joke, others less.
The Controversy of Eurovision 2021
Words that evoke the controversy in which the singer was the protagonist at the Eurovision 2021, during which he was unjustly accused of using drugs (in direct). This content can also be viewed on the site it originates from. Among these, perhaps Damiano himself, who neither replied to his colleague nor gave him a like. From here, the gossip hypothesis: there would be a bit of tension between the two.
The Gossip Single Release
True or not, it is not the first time that Damiano has shown himself without veils on Instagram. He had done it, for example, last January, to announce the release of the single Gossip. And even then it had divided the social people. “Brothers, Blink were doing this 25 years ago“, commented a user, starting the controversy. “But in fact they make the bad copy of the great stars, it is now established”, replied another follower. “Between breaking guitars and posing semi-naked, the concept is that these so revolutionary Maneskin lately are copying old stuff from 30-40 years ago. It makes you think they are a bit short of ideas, that’s all”, a third user had reiterated. Of course, most of the Måneskin fans sided with their idols, defending their musical choices (“They don’t copy, they take inspiration, and they don’t have a problem to declare which are their artist-muses”) and attacking – if anything – the star system: “They are not short of ideas. The market has absorbed them well and the money does the rest. Too young to resist this”.
