Semi-nude photos of Christina Aguilera have been leaked on the web. According to TMZ, they were illegally obtained by a hacker and were apparently once in the possession of her stylist. The semi-nude photos display the star in a true “Burlesque” ensemble complete with pasties and little else. Sites like Egotastic! had the photos up as of Wednesday.
According to a rep for Christina Aguilera, they are pursuing whoever leaked the semi-nude photos “aggressively”. However, the publicity created by a few risqué photos surely cannot hurt the star at this point. In fact, it’s likely that the sexy photos will draw just a little more attention to her sexy movie currently in theaters, “Burlesque”.
And she wouldn’t be the first teen singing sensation to grow up and cause a scandal with semi-nude photos; just last year topless photos of Britney Spears hit the web and caused quite a commotion. The topless pics were taken during the filming of her “Gimme More” video and were a little more risqué than Christina Aguilera’s semi-nude photos, since all Britney Spears had to cover herself up with from the waist up were some fake rose tattoos (well, Jessica Simpson, it’s your move now; you’re going to have to show a lot to beat these two).
A few years ago, semi-nude photos of stars like Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears would have gotten plenty of attention, but it seems like now the world has turned its attention to younger stars like Miley Cyrus, who could very well become the next Britney Spears (or Jessica Simpson; I can see that happening, too).
Still, the semi-nude photos could be just the boost Christina Aguilera needs to stay in the spotlight. Currently her movie “Burlesque” is helping to do the job, as well as her new man Matthew Rutler. So could we see more of Christina Aguilera in the future? (Oh, and I wasn’t talking about skin there.) She seems to have a lot of blonde ambition going on lately, so don’t be surprised to see her stage a comeback next year. Will she go Gleek? Do Playboy? Get married again? Stay tuned to find out!
