Paramore’s Hayley Williams is the Internet’s latest topless darling. While she’s grousing about the exposure, she’s basking in the publicity — which makes the leak, as usual, suspect.
A slew of female stars — Ashley Greene, Vanessa Hudgens, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Megan Fox (hers were fake) have suffered similar fates.
Almost all are up-and-coming singers and starlets, who seem to benefit vastly more from the publicity than from the embarrassment of showing their private parts. And, why no men? Why are their nude photos never hacked?
The redhead is topless in what appears to be a camera phone photo.
She’s staring blankly into the lens, making hard to figure out why she took the obvious self-portrait in the first place.
The photo was posted on Thursday and more than 600,000 of Williams’ followers had access to it. It was taken down shortly thereafter, but not before it went viral on the Internet.
Needless to say, the singer feigned distress. “Well … my night just changed drastically. Got hacked,” she Tweeted.
Coincidentally, or not so, Williams recently shot the video for B.o.B.’s song “Airplanes.”
Also, Paramore is just heading out for the Honda Civic Tour, along with indie bands, Tegan and Sara, New Found Glory and Kadawatha. The tour launches, July 23 in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Williams appears to be taking the hack in stride. No further word from her on plans to rein in the photo.
