PUSSY RIOT POSES FOR TERRY RICHARDSON

Sorry friends, but I just don't give two hoots about Pussy Riot. HOWEVER, I am a big fan of people forgoing their principles for the sake of online attention, so can we just talk about how hilarious it is that one of the band's members was photographed by Terry Richardson!

First, a little history. Pussy Riot is an all-female Russian punk band with strong feminist convictions and a deeply held belief in justice for their Motherland's persecuted citizens. Famously, three members did time for 'hooliganism' after they staged a performance in an orthodox cathedral. Their arrest and incarceration caused global outrage, drawing the attention of Amnesty International.

Terry Richardson is a creepy sex pest photographer who is accused of many indiscretions, including offering models photoshoots in exchange for sex and/or molesting them regardless. 

In short, Nadya Tolokonnikova, human rights activist, former political prisoner, feminist, singer of a song called 'Kill The Sexist', is probably the last person you'd expect to be photographed by Terry. Maybe she just really likes his minimal style. In her defense, she says she didn't know about Terry's "sins" until all was said and done. No word on whether or not he dangled his dick in her face.

Don't Panic attempt to credit photographers and content owners wherever possible, however due to the sheer size and nature of the internet this is sometimes impractical or impossible. If you see any images on our site which you believe belong to yourself or another and we have incorrectly used it please let us know at panic@dontpaniconline.com and we will respond asap.
