Mocha on a roll, appears on Playboy PH
MANILA, Philippines -- The Mocha Girls are on a roll.
After winning Best Dance Album at the recent 4th PMPC Star Awards for Music and releasing a viral video on the Internet with their sexy take on the "Gangnam Style" craze, the girl group led by Mocha Uson is on the cover of the September issue of Playboy Philippines.
"The femme fatales prove to be steady with the ever-changing local pop scene. The Mocha Girls have all the trappings of a pop act, but beyond the seamless and fiercely feminine image is a thrust that goes beyond the rhythm of the local sphere. The girls are out to preach sexual freedom, urging debate and exploring self-empowerment as they go," the magazine said on its Facebook page.
Playboy's latest issue is devoted to music, with profiles on both local (Wolfgang's Basti Artadi and Parokya ni Edgar's Chito Miranda) and foreign (Bruno Mars and Sting) artists.
But the men's magazine also promised this will be its "boldest issue yet."
Uson took to her official Twitter account to promote the magazine as well as a video of the cover shoot which has been uploaded on YouTube.
"Watch the behind the scene video from Mocha Girls Playboy cover shoot Sept. issue!" Uson tweeted.
On the cover, Uson is the only one wearing a sheer white top and a bikini bottom, while the four other members of the group are topless.
But that's just on the cover, as the magazine's readers found out.
"Kaya pala 'Boldest issue yet' may photo si Mocha sa loob ng Playboy magazine -- bold nga :) -- Ikaw na Mocha :)" Jonathan Cruz said on Twitter.
"Guys hindi kyo magsisi kapag bumili kyo ng Playboy :) kung dito naka blur ung kay Mocha Uson sa loob ng magazine "BOLD" talaga, tinalo ung kay Aubrey Miles's playboy :) dahil bihira ito dalawang ,agazine binili ko :)," commented Jonathan Cruz on YouTube, referring to the blurred portions in the behind-the-scenes video.
Playboy Philippines' post on the September cover has garnered more than 2,300 likes and over 500 comments.
"Naduleng ako s kakatigin sa inyo idol," wrote Dan Marquez on Facebook.

"Wow! I really like it Mocha...dapat ipinakita na lahat jejeje," Aldho Dionco said.
