Naked celebrity moments: Lady Godiva, Madonna, Favre & more
|Lady Godiva makes a career move.|
WARNING: Some of these toe the line between PG-13 and R rated pics.
Centuries before the Boston Tea Party, Lady Godiva was protesting oppressive taxation in Coventry, England. Not by the government, mind you, but by her husband. She nagged him forever about the way he treated his tenants, and he finally promised to ease up on the fiduciary beat down if she rode a horse naked through the streets of Coventry. She did. Career impact: No one's ever heard of Leofric, Earl of Mercia, but we all know his Lady.

Bringing new meaning to the term "tight end," the Vike's Visanthe Shiancoe got his junk on national TV when a Fox camera caught him wandering around the locker room after a 20-16 victory over the Detroit Lions. Career impact: More carries and better yardage the following season.

Some nude art pics surfaced from back when Madge was a starving student. It was scandalous at the time, but Madonna's reaction was pretty much, "So?" That was the public's reaction, too. Her staged photo book "Sex" and the companion album "Erotica" were commercial flops. Career impact: Most people are pretty uninterested in seeing Madonna naked.
