"I can't think of a photo more copied/paid homage to/parodied than this"
Who the hell ever "paid homage" to THAT? There was nothing "iconic" about some guy squeezing Janet Jackson's baseball-like breast implants. That picture was ridiculed and made fun of and it's easy to see why. It's STUPID.
God, there are so many "iconic" images of The Beatles, Elvis Presely, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Bob Marley, Jim Morrison, Led Zeppelin, the Sex Pistols out there. And in none have them were they naked in an attempt to be "iconic."

R8, calm the fuck down. If anything or anyone is STUPID, it's you.
First off, you ignorant twit, MANY people have paid homage to that image of Janet Jackson, from Kathy Griffin (recently) and Britney Spears to Kat Von D. and Mel B. in a recent breast cancer awareness ad. Even men have copied it. Adam Levine posed nude with his girlfriend's hand covering his junk from behind some months back, and he said in his own words that his photo was a "male version of the Janet Rolling Stone cover photo." And Brad Pitt, Guy Ritchie and Benicio Del Torro paid homage to it on the cover of Premiere magazine
If all of this makes you upset, then let me tell you how many fucks I give...
wait for it...

Goddamn, R15 is a retard. That's not "homage", dumbfuck. That's PUBLICITY. That photo with Janet Jackson's fake titty-balls hanging out got a lot of press (I guess so! It was so very skanky), so others followed suit in hopes of getting the same sort of public attention. It has nothing to do with paying "homage." I guess you're just too stupid to realize that, poor delusional pathetic Janet Jackson fangurl that you are.

Pot meet kettle. Although I'd actually put you more along the lines of retarded AND psychotic.

I guess you're just too stupid to realize that, poor delusional pathetic Janet Jackson fangurl that you are.
Take the cock out of your mouth and learn what homage is, dickhead, before you start blathering like the idiot that you are. When most of these people mimicked Janet's RS cover, they gave her props and said that her photo was the inspiration for it. When an original image/song/film is mimicked and copied through the years, that is homage--particularly when the person mimicking gives proper credit to the original.
I think your obvious (and hilarious) anger is less about the iconic photo itself and more about some deep-seated thing you have against Janet Jackson. Poor thing. Get some help.
