LOS ANGELES — Amy Schumer unveiled the cover of her upcoming book by posing topless.

The 34-year-old Emmy-winning actress, director and comedian stripped topless for the revealing snapshot.

In the gorgeous photo, Schumer looks over her left shoulder with a slight smirk on her face, reported Us magazine.

The cover shows an apparently naked Amy from behind, peering over her shoulder with her arms across her chest.

Schumer’s collection of essays, titled The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo (a spoof of the massively successful Swedish thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), hits stores and Kindle in August.

The collection will feature “personal and observational stories that range from the raunchy to the romantic, the heartfelt to the harrowing,” according to the actress’ official website.

“Amy Schumer is not an entertainer who can actually write,” publisher Jennifer Bergstrom said in a press release. “She’s a writer. Who also happens to entertain.”

The book’s title is a play-off Stieg Larsson’s bestseller, ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’, which was adapted into an Academy Award-winning movie starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara in 2011.

US judge dismisses Taylor Swift ‘Shake It Off’ copyright lawsuit

LOS ANGELES — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit accusing singer Taylor Swift of stealing lyrics for her song ‘Shake It Off’ on Tuesday ruling the phrases in question were not sufficiently original to merit copyright protection.

Songwriters Sean Hall and Nathan Butler brought the suit last fall, arguing that the chorus of the song borrowed from their 2001 composition, ‘Playas Gon’ Play’.

In his ruling, Judge Michael W Fitzgerald held that combining the phrases, ‘Playas gonna play’ and ‘haters gonna hate,’ does not entail sufficient originality to warrant copyright protection, Variety reported.

Swift’s 2014 song reached No 1 on the pop charts and marked her evolution from country to pop music.

Swift’s lyrics from the chorus of ‘Shake It Off’ are, ‘the players gonna play, play, play, play, play, and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.’

Attorneys for Swift asked US District Judge Michael Fitzgerald in January to dismiss the case.

“In order for such short phrases to be protected under the Copyright Act, they must be more creative than the lyrics at issue here,” Fitzgerald ruled, according to court papers.

The songwriters who sued Swift did not allege Swift’s song stole musical elements, the judge said, and phrases about players and haters existed in pop culture before 2001.
