back to article Alt rock diva's nude snap 'leaked' to tweetosphere

The Tweetosphere is abuzz with speculation about the release of a picture that bares the breasts of alternative rock diva Hayley Williams. The official explanation is that the singer and keyboard player was "hacked" and the boobalicious pic was posted to by the intruder. A more cynical person might be tempted to …

    Those breasts don't look sufficiently developed, so she must be under 18.

    Purposely leaked? I wouldn't be surprised

    Given the amount of "viral" video on YouTube that's turned out to have been skeezy mass-marketing ploys, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if this hadn't been leaked on purpose.

    Kinda reminds me of all the celebrity sex tape revelations lately. Has anyone else here noticed that damn' near every "major" celebrity or other famous-type person has had some kind of trashy, grainy, homemade sex tape leaked these days? The first few times it was surprising, but now it seems to be de rigueur for any serious famous person to have a sex tape, or they just haven't "arrived". For instance, the new Miss USA -- as I recall, it wasn't 24 hours after she was "crowned" that somebody leaked a tape of her in some pole-dancing contest somewhere. And remember Carrie Prejean? And John Edwards?

    I'm at a point now where I think perhaps the whole sex-tape and nude-photo leakage is being done on purpose, for the publicity. It's getting to be like MSIE security holes, or Facebook privacy violations.

    1. call me scruffy

      Now look here,

      You see that, right there? That is how to over analyse.

      A full and complete analysis follows:

      "Wow! Booooooobs!"

      I don't see any leakage

      Where's the point?

      Oh, right there. Never mind.

    No, really. This _is_ 2010...

    Young women baring all in front of webcams and flashing various anatomical parts (and&or using them) is now considered one of humanity's well-established customs, in the same category as mowing the grass on Saturday and walking the dog in the evening.

    Nothing new really.

    Released on purpose?

    Although it undoubtedly was released on purpose, the arguments say that the meta data show the snap was taken 8mins before being posted. If i was hacking her account i would make sure an modify the meta data to show that too...

    She's 21 so it's safe to look...

    As a fan of her and her band I thought she would have been above doing this for publicity - she seemed "better" than that. The whole "sex-tape" or "nude pictures" thing is just so tacky - it just seems to be "my talent isn't enough so simply think of me as a sex object" (of course, Paris has *no* talent... so had to use the tape for her "fame").

    I guess it's just the progression of "fame" having nothing to do with talent, just how far you're prepared to go to debase yourself. Pathetic really, but very indicative of modern society.

    Sorry luv, it's been done

    Yawn. Can't these Ω-list celebs come up with anything new? Seen without her boobs, she's nothing to write home about anyway. Take a tip from Lily Allen, she's far prettier and shows off her body on a regular basis in things like GQ or Arena and indeed quite a lot of it on stage; that's what the *clever* girls do. Being hacked is so 20th Century.

    Can not figure out why anyone with any fame at all would allow themselves to be filmed like Paris and Pamela did. I don't care how secure you think those tapes are, they always seem to hit the market and internet. If you film it, expect it to hit the net. This girl just got my attention :o)

    .....that the first couple of decades of the 21st century will be forever known as being recorded by crappy camera phones.

    I'm guessing she was trying to upload to a private album and accidentally posted it. We've all sent a text to the wrong person, right? This is no different, well apart from the millions of people who see it, bless her. Anyone who thinks this might be a publicity stunt is insane. Apparently anything that makes the news now about a celeb was done deliberately to promote their next project these days.

    The article has a link to the story about the metadata in the image, but neither you vultures nor that other rag posted the original picture. Of course, the picture has been removed from its original location on TwitPic, and the uncensored image on El Reg has been processed with Photoshop according to the metadata in that image. In the interest of journalistic integrity, please post the original image that is the subject of this article so that others can independently verify claims about the metadata.

    Our beloved moderatrix has been somewhat quiet - has she imploded after modding these comments?

  50. TkH11


    I've never taken any kind of interest in tweeting, with 20 years professional IT experience under my belt you'd have thought I'd know something about this technology. I don't.

    I have no interest in reading completely useless messages posted by celebrities or some other Tom, Dick, Harry, Peaches, Paris or whatever useless name weird parents can choose for their pretentious kids.

    To show that lack of ignorance of the technology (if you can really call it technology?), I understood tweeting was about short messaging, getting information out in difficult circumstances where people have limited bandwidth on their internet connections, so what the heck is this idea of tweeting photographs all about? Doesn't it go complete against the idea of small message sizes (measured in bytes)?

    But I really can't be bothered to even go look it up. Haven't people really got better things to do with their lives than read up on the drab and dreary offings of some wannabe celebrity that's got as much talent as my dead mouse?

    Well, actually, I haven't got a mouse, neither a live one, or a dead one. Said for dramatic effect.

    Someone, someone in the know, please tell me, this tweeting lark, am I missing something?
