Mon Laferte topless

Mon Laferte goes topless on red carpet to support Chilean rights after winning Latin Grammy Award

Chilean-Mexican singer Mon Laferte made more than a fashion statement on the red carpet of the 20th Annual Latin Grammy Awards in Las Vegas on Thursday.

The Viña del Mar-born 36-year-old dropped a black trench coat down around her shoulders exposing her breasts, which bore the message: ‘In Chile they torture, kill, and rape.’

Mon (born Norma Monserrat Bustamante Laferte) also wore a green handkerchief around her neck to reportedly support the legalization of abortion.

Laferte’s topless protest was in support of Chilean rights as the South American country enters the month-mark of mass demonstrations demanding a new constitution.

The Paisaje Japonés belter – who boasts 10.5M social media followers – is the most listened to Chilean artist on Spotify worldwide and she hoped to bring attention to the crisis.

Ahead of the Univision-broadcast ceremony, Mon scored her second Latin Grammy trophy – this time for her sixth studio album Norma – which won best alternative music album.

‘What emotion…[Thanks] to my colleagues and especially to the public, the people, the fans that are there, without people nothing could happen,’ Laferte said (in Spanish) onstage the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

‘This is for Chile.’

The Canción de mierda singer then recited a poem by Chilean poet La Chinganera.

‘Chile hurts me inside,’ Mexico City-based Mon read from her iPhone.

‘You bleed me through every vein, every chain that imprisons you to the center weighs me, Chile outside, Chile inside, Chile to the sound of injustice, the militia boot, the bullet that doesn’t listen, no it will stop our struggle until justice is done.’
