In the meantime, Damiano David bandmates wore coordinating black ensembles, which revealed a little more skin than the bass player had intended.
Despite wearing a Gucci one-shoulder dress, which exposed one breast, the 22-year-old covered it with a pasty. It was her breast, which was meant to be covered by her top, that was suddenly exposed, resulting in MTV’s censorship.
