Australian Idol judge Amy Shark poses topless for Rolling Stone cover as she reveals she had no confidence at the start of her career: ‘I never thought I’d ever do a shoot like this’
Amy Shark is showing off her newfound confidence on the cover of Rolling Stone Australia magazine.
The singer-songwriter dares to bare by going topless on the cover, admitting: ‘I never thought I would ever do a shoot like this.’
The Australian Idol judge protects her modesty by letting her long brown hair cover her chest.
In an accompanying interview, the 36-year-old admitted her self-esteem was lacking at the start of her career.
‘Like, zero self-esteem, especially with photo shoots,’ she said, before adding: ‘I’ve got a lot more confidence now.’

The I Said Hi hit-maker explained she was ‘more comfortable in her skin’ these days.
‘I kinda know who I am now which is nice,’ she declared.
Speaking about the raunchy photoshoot, Amy said: ‘I think it’s definitely showcasing another level of me as a musician in my career. What I’m willing to do and take chances on and be a little risky.’
Poppy Reid, Rolling Stone AU/NZ editor-in-chief, said she’s excited for fans to see a different side of Shark through the cover shoot and accompanying article.
‘Amy Shark has reached the top of the pop mountain in Australia,’ Reid gushed.
‘Just two albums in, she is now selling out arenas, undertaking the biggest tours in the country, delivering multi-platinum hits, and beaming into hundreds of thousands of living rooms every week as a judge on Australian Idol.
‘She’s also the opposite of everything you’d expect from a pop star. For over a year, I was given unprecedented access to Amy – and she went deeper than she’s ever gone.’
