Racy Christina Aguilera photos were hacked, rep says
A half-dozen racy pictures of a scantily clad Christina Aguilera that turned up online Wednesday are stylist shots never meant to see the light of day, the singer's rep said in a statement.
The pics, taken in Aguilera's home, "were illegally obtained by a hacker who tapped into Christina's personal stylist's account," the rep said, adding that Team Xtina is working to identify the culprits and intends to "pursue them aggressively."
One website that chose to publish the shots speculated that they might have been a "last ditch effort" by the "Burlesque" star to save her marriage -- yeah, the marriage in which she filed for divorce. Because semi-naked pictures taken in closets usually make everything better?
We would, however, like to share one family-friendly detail from the privacy-violating images: Girlfriend has a closet with one of the most awesome shoe-organizing setups we've seen. Think, Carrie Bradshaw's penthouse closet in the "Sex and the City" movie -- but in pink, with a leopard skin rug.
Such a short hop from scandal to envy. Sigh.
