Zara Larsson shut down a journalist who wrote an article about her nipples

Apparently in 2017, people still find boobs newsworthy.

ON SATURDAY EVENING, UK newspaper Daily Star published an article titled ‘Zara Larsson’s intimate piercing gatecrashes performance‘, which told the dramatic tale of how one woman’s nipple piercings were slightly visible during her live performance in Portsmouth’s Guildhall.

19-year-old Larsson is a singer and songwriter from Stockholm. She won Sweden’s equivalent of Britain’s Got Talent when she was just 10-years-old. She has gone triple platinum in Sweden and performed at the opening and closing ceremonies of the UEFA Euro 2016 in France.

Those are some facts that are slightly more interesting than the fact that this woman is the proud owner of two nipples. However, these facts had to take a back seat in the Daily Star’s dramatic retelling of how Zara’s nipples ‘gatecrashed’ her gig.

The author wrote about how fans struggled to enjoy the gig due to the prominence of Zara’s nipples. Don’t you just hate when you go to see your favourite singer live and two coin sized protrusions on their shirt destroy the whole experience for you?

Instead of concentrating on her vocal skills, the crowd seemed a little distracted over what was going on up top.
The 19-year-old neglected to wear a bra on her big night and that soon became apparent.
As she got into the grove (sic) it appeared that Zara was completely unaware that her entire chest was grabbing the spotlight too.
Zara’s skintight top revealed the outline of the Symphony singer’s pierced nipples.

Zara caught wind of this and found it pretty laughable.

A quick click into the author’s byline makes it apparent that she may well be the Daily Star’s boob correspondent.


There’s no denying that many newspapers are extremely dedicated to cataloguing what the body parts of female celebrities have been up to for the last twenty years. A service the public can’t live without.

Some day, your children might ask you “Mammy, what were Kim Kardashian’s slender pins doing back in 2015?”, and you’ll tell them “They were narrowly avoiding puddles as she walked out of Heathrow airport following her feud with Amber Rose. Here’s an old photograph.”
