Some are saying this clingy look is way too sexy for a gospel singer. There are strong comments online.
One person commented, "People who are looking for the gospel do not need sexy images.. They need to stop with this nonsense.”
But Campbell, a devout Christian who is part of the successful gospel group Mary Mary, see's nothing wrong with the image.
She said, “I think sexuality scares Christians."
The negative reaction has caught her off guard.
“All white, praying hands. I am not doing anything but standing there. I am okay with my sexy image,” she said.
And if fans of her reality show, which is about to start its third season on the WEtv cable network, expect to see her tone down her image, she says that's not going to happen.
She said, “They want me to wear a moo moo and choir robes and that's just not this girl.”
