Thought experiment: Would you rather have your Instagram hacked, OR have your ex hacked and your nude photos leaked on their account? Something to debate around the dinner table tonight, but unfortunately, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber didn’t get to choose—Gomez’s account was infiltrated on Monday, and Bieber’s nekked pics were posted. Again!
It’s also relevant that with 125 million followers, Gomez is the app’s most followed person. Nevertheless, the account was quickly deactivated and restored a short time later, nudes since replaced with customary photos of Gomez eating a tube of lipstick and being crushed under an enormous Coach purse. According to CBS News:
When Gomez’s account went down, Kirsten Stubbs, the Digital Marketing Director at Interscope Records, tweeted that Gomez’s record label had intentionally shut down the account.
“We deactivated with Instagram to ensure it’s secure before relaunching! Hang tight,” Stubbs tweeted in response to one of Gomez’s fans.
Also, we’ve seen Bieber’s nudes before, and can confirm he’s basically got nothing to be embarrassed about.
Mark Zuckerberg has successfully co-founded another child with his wife, Priscilla Chan. This one’s name is August, maybe because she was born in August? That seems like a cruel set-up for mockery. Particularly because Zuck and Chan’s other daughter’s name is Max, which is cool. August? I don’t know about August. It’d be better if she’d been born in January. More aspirational, you know?
Like her older, cooler sister, young August was also treated to her own Facebook note, this one extolling the virtues of going outside and putting leaves in buckets and not worrying about third party tracking or her father’s presidential aspirations until she’s older—at least a year.
Congrats to everyone, and good luck August.
It seems as though North West is not a huge fan of her younger brother, Saint. Kim Kardashian revealed the family drama while temporarily filling in for Kelly Ripa on Live with Kelly & Ryan:
“I don’t know if it’s because she’s the older sister. I don’t know what it is. I thought it was a phase. She does not like her brother and it’s so hard for me,” said the 36-year-old reality TV star.
“She would get so jealous when I would breastfeed and all that kind of stuff,” adds Kardashian West. “And now, the phase isn’t going away.”
Could it be that the Kardashian clan began subtly pitting them against each other immediately following Saint’s birth, in order to eventually create more compelling television for their inevitable spinoff show? Just going to leave that there.
