Now I always give Kim Kardashian the business for taking off her clothes, which is also her brand. So why is it OK for Cristiano to do it and I salivate? It's not just because I find him to be attractive and her to be the female equivalent of Mickey Rourke. My beloved Britney uses her to body to get attention too and she is still aces in my book. It boils down to talent, which Brit and Cristiano have in spades and Kim K well doesn't. We can debate her business acumen in another post. Right now though we need to talk about Ronaldo and why he takes off his clothes.
So why does Cristiano post so many shirtless pics of himself? Like The Daily Beast says "Ronaldo, like David Beckham, another proud 'spornosexual', knows that his career with Real Madrid and Portugal’s national team—which just won its first European championship—can only last so long." Even though he's just 31, he needs to look towards the future and what he's going to do after he retires from the sports world. Part of that is to make sure girls and gays have a huge crush on him and will follow him to the ends of the Earth. Which we will.
To make sure he still has money rolling in, long after he retire, Cristiano is opening up a 5-star hotel today. What better way to get people to stay at your hotel, than to make them think that there is a chance they will get to see Ronaldo shirtless and in the flesh. I'm ready to sell all my organs to go and stay in his hotel for an hour, as long as I can oogle his hot body for that hour. And yes it will be totally worth it.
