A farore has broken out in the Turkish media after the singer lined up to represent the country at the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest was seen posing in a revealing black outfit on the front cover of local magazine, Boxer. It had been claimed that she had broken an important term in her contract with TRT and her participation could be reviewed, but her management have proved that no such transgretion has been made.
According to Hadise's management, Hadise had agreed with a request from TRT to ensure that she did not do anything that would 'shock' the Turkish public in the run up to the Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow next year.
Turkish newspaperssuch Milliyet were quick to write that she had broken the rules by posing for the photos, however it has come to light that the photos were taken over a year ago for the Belgian edition of Maxim magazine and that no rules have been broken.
Hadise's management team have been quick to end any discussion about whether or not Hadise has reneged on any of the terms in her contract with TRT. They have stated: "These pictures were taken in August 2007, when Hadise could be found in the Belgian magazine Maxim. You can verify it, this cover picture was on page 60. The pictures were made in dialogue with Maxim, the photographer and her management. So what's happening now is rubbish."
Hadise is a highly popular superstar in both Turkey and Belgium. She is currently hosting the Belgian version of The X Factor and is a pin up for many teenagers. She is no stranger to modelling and has been doing photography for magazines and promotion of her music career for several years.
