Demi Lovato — you’ve come out fighting after nude photos, allegedly of you, leaked online on April 4. While it’s understandable that you’re furious, there’s only one remedy for an embarrassing situation like this — don’t ever take nude pics!
Demi Lovato — you are just the latest victim of an ongoing phenomenon in the celebrity and non-celebrity world: leaked nude pics. Whether you’re famous around the world or just famous among your own circle of friends and family, unfortunately, thousands of people have found themselves unclothed and online.
Demi Lovato Angry At Nude Photos — She Just Shouldn’t Take Naked Pics Ever
Sadly, there doesn’t seem to be a safe way to take sexy naked photos with a partner in this day and age when sharing photos is just a matter of a simple click. It’s just too easy for a spurned ex, a prankster or a hacker to get into your phone or computer and share your privates with the public.
So Demi, I’m sure when you took the alleged photos of yourself and Wilmer, you had no idea that your intimate and sensual moments would end up on display for millions to see. But you’ve got to remember, you are a worldwide star, the object of endless interest to your fans and others. And as such, it’s just too dangerous to take sexy private pics.
Just ask Vanessa Hudgens, Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Hayley Williams, Blake Lively, Dylan Sprouse and Ashley Greene. They’re several of the celebrities who have had the unfortunate surprise of coming face-to-face with their own nude photos online.
Some folks — like Kanye West, who confirmed that a penis photo circulating on the Internet in October, 2010 was his — don’t shy away from taking ownership of their nude pics.
Whatever you think of Kanye, you have to hand it to him for not only proudly admitting that the photo revealed his most intimate body part, but also for actually getting angry that the photo didn’t show the entire length and breadth of his magnificent member.
“They knocked the nose off the Sphinx,” he complained. “You can’t imagine how disappointed I was that I got cut off.” He later rapped about the incident in a song: “She find pictures in my email — I sent this girl a picture of my d**k.”
Demi Lovato — If The Nude Pics Are Yours, You Should Just Admit
Demi, you have not admitted that the pictures are yours, even though the resemblance to you and Wilmer is uncanny. But you did post a tweet in Spanish, which, translated, says: “I am strong. I am a fighter. Do not underestimate me.”
At HollywoodLife.com, we also hear EXCLUSIVELY that you’re “livid” and determined to find out who leaked your pictures.
Like you, Vanessa Hudgens was certainly not happy about her leaked photos, and she later confessed that the leak was “by far the worst moment of my career.” She also issued an apology to her fans: “I am embarrassed over the situation and regret having ever taken these photos. I am thankful for the support of my family and friends.”
As for other celebs who were victims of the same embarrassing situation, Blake Lively simply denied that the nude photos were her, even though the blonde woman in the picture sure looked a lot like her. And as for Miley Cyrus, well, she probably enjoyed the whole uproar, being a supporter of the Free the Nipple campaign anyway!
So Demi, my best advice to you in the future is to restrict your picture-taking to non-X-rated activities, or be prepared to pull a Dylan Sprouse and simply fess up and laugh about it. As Dylan tweeted, “I messed up but I’d be a fool not to own up to it. Got to move past it I suppose.”
It’s good advice, Demi. Just move past it — and keep a bikini on for your next batch of sexy selfies.
Do you agree, HollywoodLifers? Should celebs and non-celebs alike stop taking nude pictures? Let me know.
