Taylor Swift is shaking off claims that hackers possess nude photos of her after her social media accounts were briefly compromised yesterday.
The people who hacked Taylor Swift's accounts are asking for Bitcoin donations. Once they reach a certain level, they will release the nudes.
Alleged nudes. The 25-year-old singer-songwriter taunted hackers with her response to the hacking on Twitter, saying the claims are bogus.
“Any hackers saying they have ‘nudes’? Psssh you’d love that wouldn’t you! Have fun photoshopping because you got NOTHING” she wrote.
Swift, whose private Twitter messages leaked, then riffed on her own song lyrics, writing, "Cause the hackers gonna hack, hack, hack, hack, hack..."
Sounds like someone really is shaking it off ... but it was a little unnerving for sure.
"Well, now I'm awake," Taylor wrote to fans. "My Twitter got hacked but don't worry."
"Twitter is deleting the hacker tweets and locking my account until they can figure out how this happened and get me a new password. Never a dull moment."
"#THIS IS WHY I'M SCARED OF TECHNOLOGY #WHO'S PARANOID NOW?"
This is not the first time she’s faced claims of nude photos, but none have surfaced ... legitimately. In 2011, a fake topless photo leaked online.
The photo was never conclusively identified as her. Swift, then 22, denied adamantly that she was the girl in the photo, who looked a lot younger.
Fake Emma Watson, Miley Cyrus (before she started taking them herself all the time) and Ariana Grande nude photos have all gone viral.
As we saw with The Fappening last year, anything is open season these days, but as far as we know, only Swift's Twitter and Instagram were hacked.
Both services prohibit posting nude photos.
If such Internet-breaking gold does exist - and given that it's Taylor Swift, it's very possible that it simply does not - it would likely be on the Cloud.
Bottom line: You can find plenty of fakes online if you try, as this has been a cottage industry for years, but don't hold your breath for the real deal.
