Alicia Keys couldn't even keep this "secret"

With The Diary of Alicia Keys, R&B's most notable singer-pianist-composer has more than lived up to the promise of her debut Songs in A Minor.  On this one, she's pushed beyond her flirtation with old-school soul and venturing into the modern world, even hiring top-producer Timbaland for assistance.

Alicia Keys may not tell your secrets, but this racy mannequin in the window of a Victoria's Secret store is talking up a controversial storm. Located in the tony Tyson's Corner mall outside of D.C., this (pantless) boudoir-themed window pants hot and heavy -- just three doors down from Gap Kids.Victoria's Secret is Out! And the tea and crumpets crowd is not happy about it.

Soccer moms, church ladies, et al are up in arms; local talk shows are overwhelmed with hysterical callers. Not so surprisingly, Victoria's not-so-secretive windows are sparking protests and calls for a boycott. They've all but called Jesse Jackson... (Oops, wrong crowd :-)

A quote in Newsweek from one of the nervous Nellies:
"Where do they go next, live sex acts in the window?" asks Andrea Lafferty, executive director of the conservative Traditional Values Coalition in Washington, D.C.

And if they do, they ought to call A. Keys! Not only does Alicia have the purrrrfect song for this edgy V.S. marketing campaign, she certainly has looks as lovely as this dolly in the window.

Okaaay O'Brian. We'll see if we can hook this ad up for you for Super Bowl. I don't know if this would qualify as a wardrobe misfunction, but it may be just as popular with "sports" fans like you. :-o

In Tyson's Corner? Really...1 or 2? That does seem pretty risque for that crowd out there in No. Va.

The culprit V.S. store is allegedly three doors away from Gap Kids, and also near another children's store... something with the word "owl" in the title.
