Audrina calls topless
photos "artistic"


One person's hot nude pics are another's "artistic" portfolio... After topless photos of Audrina Patridge surfaced on the web yesterday, The Hills star spoke out about the nearly five-year-old shots, taken when she was just 17. "I intended them to be artistic and not in any way provocative," Audrina writes on her MySpace blog this morning. "I was naive, overly trusting of people and inexperienced. I thought that to be a model you had to be comfortable in front of the camera." Putting a positive spin on what could have been an incredibly uncomfortable disclosure, Audrina says she hopes her fans can benefit from her example. "I'm not ashamed of these photos, but I don't want my young fans to think they have to do what I did," she writes. "I hope people can learn from my inexperience."
