Uhhh…what’s going on here, Sam Smith? The singer posted a strange photo of a naked woman to his Instagram account on July 2, leading fans to speculate that he’d been hacked.
Well, this doesn’t seem quite like something Sam Smith would post on Instagram! On July 2, the “Stay With Me” singer shocked fans by uploading a picture of a woman in the shower — and she’s completely nude. Was he hacked, or did he really mean to do this?!
The shocking, NSFW picture shows a woman’s totally bare backside pressed up against the glass as she stands soaking wet in the shower. Sam gave little explanation, simply captioning the pic with an emoji that has its eyes widened. Fans were definitely pretty surprised at the upload, and questioned in the comments section whether or not the British star’s account had been hacked.
Interestingly, though, hours after Sam uploaded the photo, it’s still on his page — and he’s even posted three photos since! The newer uploads seem to be pretty normal — they show off his loyal fans and an artsy shot of the sky — and it would be kind of strange for him not to delete the naked woman shot if he had been hacked. So perhaps he did really just want it on his account?
“Everybody chill,” one commenter wrote. “He just added two more pictures to his account so that means it wasn’t hacked.. is what it is, who knows why he has that right.” The messages was in response to critics who questioned Sam’s sexuality (he’s openly gay) after he decided to share the sexy picture. “You all make me laugh,” someone else added. “He post a naked girl and all of a sudden he’s not gay.”
Either way, this whole thing seems to mostly be in good fun, and if it was a hack, Sam must’ve thought it was pretty funny since he decided not to take it down, right?
Okay, HollywoodLifers, tell us: Do you think Sam was hacked? Or did he mean to post this photo?
