Mel B's Peepshow

Mel B, better known as Scary Spice of the Spice Girls, is starring in a new Burlesque show on the strip in Las Vegas.

The ad features a key hole, similar to Kylie Minogue's "Shocked" video. POM also recently discussed the symbolism in this about another Vegas show. Mel B has been a media sex kitten for years. She often wore the leopard print outfits during the Spice Girls days and portrayed a sexually aggressive image.
I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with sexuality and a woman expressing her sexual desires and showing her body, but it's important to point out the MK elements to the way it's used in popular culture.
