You’ve got to question the timing. Christina Aguilera has had a tough year, not only professionally but personally. Her last album and tour did not do well, her film Burlesque bombed, and her marriage fell apart. Her career, it has needed a much needed boost. So you’ve got to wonder if the release of these photos was done on purpose by Christina Aguilera or her people…Her rep has said the photos that were reportedly in her stylist’s possession on their laptop were” illegally obtained by a hacker.” Adding that the pics were “taken in the privacy of Ms. Aguilera’s home and were used only in a personal exchange between the star and her stylist.”
But there have been several celebrities who let some racy photos or footage “leak” in a – usually in vain – way to ignite their career. Why were these photos leaked now? Wouldn’t someone wait until her stock was “up” and they could get more for the photos? Or was it more of a spur of the moment thing? Or maybe it’s all just a ploy to keep her name in the headlines?
