Well... it's partially true. The male acrobats were topless and it was at the Vatican. And Palpatine was veeeerrrry much enjoying seeing them muscular mens with the plucked eyebrows all over each other. Where the hell are the PR folks at the Vatican anyway? Are they all in Key West or something? One or two should have checked to see what was on Herr Pope's schedule.
See for yourself. It's a hoot.
And maybe someone can tell me why the girl in the black leather catsuit didn't have a veil on. Just sayin'.
