Demi Lovato Laughs Off ‘Nude’ Photo Leak, Refuses To Play Victim
Miss Confident, herself — Demi Lovato — is laughing off reports that she's the helpless victim of a nude photo hack. As far as the singer's concerned, a supposedly compromising picture that's been posted without Lovato's consent is tame compared to pics she, herself, commissioned and published years ago.
Stories began surfacing Tuesday (March 21) that reported a naked photo of Lovato had begun to circulate. But the only image that had been unearthed, Lovato ultimately clarified, was one that featured her in a partially unzipped sweatshirt. And Lovato insisted that many have already seen her much barer in the pages of Vanity Fair — by Lovato's own choice — in 2012.
"I love how everyone's freaking out about one picture. It's not nude and it's just cleavage," she wrote. "Besides the world has seen me nude BY CHOICE before."
And fans stood right by Lovato's side: one tweeted "haha. You look bomb boo, don't know why you kept it from us," while another noted "don't listen to the losers. We understand. I think it's very brave and I'm proud of you."
Lovato was previously the target of a scandal in 2014, when one hacker gained access to the Twitter account of her ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama and published a collection of Lovato's nude photos.
