Tove Lo on her ‘uterus’ dress at ARIA Awards: ‘We don’t censor a p***y’

She also performed 'Say It' with Flume

Tove Lo appeared at the ARIA Awards last night, where she performed with Flume and made another bold statement about femininity by wearing a ‘uterus’ dress’.

The outspoken ‘Talking Body’ and ‘Cool Girl’ star was the Australian music ceremony where she sung ‘Say It’ with multiple ARIA-winner Flume for a sultry performance in her underwear. But before she took to the stage, she made another feminist statement about the female body with her choice of dress on the red carpet.

“A vagina or a pussy… whatever you want to call it,” she told BE. “I’m from Sweden where we don’t really censor at all… you’ve just got to say what it is,”

She continued: “My Swedish stylist who calls himself Crap Diem, he asked if he could make me a dress and I was like, yeah, whatever you make, I’m in.”

Speaking to NME, Tove Lo opened up about her ambitions to change the way that the world thinks about female nudity and masturbation – after she claimed that it was pulled from Youtube due to its ‘sexual content’.

“It could have been shot a million different ways,” Tove Lo told NME. “I could have been arching my back or looking more appealing, but it’s not about that. I’m here on my own and getting myself off. People might think it’s not that sexy, but you don’t see that much with women.”

‘Fairy Dust’ co-stars Lina Esco, the actress and activist who founded the Free The Nipple movement after directing a 2012 film about the legality of women baring their breasts in public. Tove Lo has supported the movement throughout the years, campaigning by often flashing her breasts during concerts.

“It’s not that important,” she told NME. “We put so much pressure and emphasis on looks. People think it’s what they should be focusing on, but it’s really not. It’s OK not to be beautiful!”

She added: “In the media, whenever you see a naked woman it’s always sexualised, or to please someone else’s eyes. I want to get to a place where women can be naked the same way that men can – funny naked or naked just to be naked.”

Tove Lo’s upcoming UK tour dates are below – with tickets on sale from 10am on Friday 28 October.

Wed March 15 2017 – MANCHESTER O2 Ritz
Fri March 17 2017 – LONDON O2 Shepherds Bush Empire
