Outrage: Beautiful Model Wearing Nothing But Body Paint Arrested In Times Square

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A model who was arrested while wearing nothing but body paint in New York`s Times Square was released without charges and says she did nothing `truly wrong.`

Zoe West, 21, stood nude at 44th Street and Broadway for 2 1/2 hours Tuesday while being painted by artist Andy Golub until police showed up and took the painted model into custody, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday."



Usually performance art is some nonsense involving a dude pretending to be a fire plug or some fool tossing silver tinsel in the air to symbolize acid rain.

Finally performance art involving a drop-dead gorgeous woman, and the Man puts a stop to the fun. Zoe West is one of the most beautiful women in the world, and she deserves a key to New York City for her incomparable performance.

New York State prohibits public nudity (thank goodness, not everybody looks like Zoe), except if it`s part of a performance or show. Zoe didn`t break the law, and for the sake of public harmony, and peace on Earth, I hope she performs sans clothes every day.
