Christina Aguilera is the latest subject of a racy photo scandal. Some semi-nude pictures of her were allegedly stolen from her private computer and started making their way around the Internet today.
She's not pleased:
"The photos of Christina Aguilera being leaked to the press were illegally obtained by a hacker who tapped into Christina's personal stylist's account," Aguilera's rep told Us. "The photos were taken in the privacy of Ms. Aguilera's home and were used only in a personal exchange between the star and her stylist."
"We are attempting to determine the identity of the hackers and will pursue them aggressively. Their conduct is reprehensible."
Stealing is reprehensible, yes, but when are celebrities -- and all walking, breathing human beings for that matter -- going to learn: If you take racy pictures or make home sex tapes, THEY WILL BE SEEN BY OTHERS. No matter how much you trust the person taking them, or how careful you are to keep them under lock and key, they will not be private forever. They just won't. There will always be an angry ex, a nosy housekeeper, a "friend" out to make a buck.
Just a few of the recent sex photo/video scandals as of late:
J.Lo -- Her ex-husband, Ojani Noa, is reportedly making a film that includes footage of her nude, including Jenny from the Block exposing her private nether regions while riding a scooter in Cuba.
Tiger Woods -- There are likely many, but the latest sex tape making headlines is of him and porn star Devon James. She supposedly has a tape that he's paying her not to release.
Ke$ha -- Some German hackers are reportedly blackmailing the singer saying they'll release nude photos of her if she doesn't promote one of them as a DJ.
Brett Favre -- The quarterback is in all sorts of hot water for allegedly texting pics of his penis to Jenn Sterger.
And on and on and on ...
Stealing something of anyone's isn't right, and for that I hope the people who stole Aguilera's pictures are punished. But it's also time that celebrities stop feigning outrage and modesty when nude pictures they take or videos they make are made public, and just assume that every one will be seen eventually ... or better yet, just put the camera away when their clothes are off.
Are you sick of celebrity sex tape and photo scandals?
