After teasing fans with some tastefully done pictures from her upcoming Playboy magazine article earlier this week, Maren Morris got criticized by more than a few fans on social media. She quickly responded to the backlash writing, “The thing about me is, I make music for myself. I learned later that it touches others, which is the most wonderful byproduct of a songwriter’s calling. Some can slut-shame me for my lyrics about sex, and you can put me in your little box, but I just want to live and love. I recently accepted myself and will put these photos in a frame because I'll never have this moment back. Can’t wait for you to read my interview with @playboy in their 'Gender + Sexuality' issue next week. I drop some truth too."

In the pictures Maren shared, she is wearing pants, boots and cowboy hat but topless and covering her breasts with her arm.

The Playboy issue featuring Maren will reportedly be out on June 18th.
