Is this what it takes to sell a CD these days?

I freely admit I made a face when I saw this new Diana Krall CD being advertised on TV.  For those of you unfamiliar with Ms. Krall, she is a respected jazz pianist and vocalist.  On this cover she looks anything but respectable.

There was a time not too long ago--probably less than 15 years--when women dressed up to look like streetwalkers on their CD covers, but then it went away.  I hope this isn't the start of a trend.

Mothers, don't let your daughters grow up to be singers...
