Nelly Furtado was approached to pose on the cover of Playboy.

True:

She declined Hugh Hefner’s offer to be on the cover of Playboy. “They wanted me to pose in clothes. I thought about doing it and giving the money to a women’s shelter, but my manager thought it could be used against me.” Mariah Carey, however, did pose for Playboy’s cover.

Furtado’s three-year-old daughter, Nevis (her father is Furtado’s former boyfriend – DJ Jasper Gahunia), was not named after the Caribbean Island upon which she was conceived. Nevis was named after the Latin word Nevi, which means “spinning or interweaving.”
