Lionel Richie’s daughter Nicole’s choice of intimate body piercing left her highly embarrassed recently, when she had to show her breasts to airport security.
The aspiring singer, who stars in hit reality show “The Simple Life” alongside her best pal Paris Hilton, was traveling from Reno, Nev., to New York City when her nipple piercing triggered off metal detectors at a security checkpoint.
[…] “So they brought in two female officers and took me not to necessarily the most private place in the airport and made me take off my top. Thank God I’m not a shy person, but what if I was shy?
“You know what, you guys are letting lighters on the plane and stuff like that, but I can’t have a nipple ring? What am I gonna do — poke someone in the eye with it?”Remember kids, take those rings and bars out before going through airport security.
Update: For the curious, Fleshbot has the not safe for work (NSFW) proof that Richie sports a nipple ring.
