Selena Gomez’s Instagram account was hacked and saturated with nude photos of ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber yesterday.

According to Variety, Gomez’s account was quickly taken down and re-secured before being put back online, minus the nude Bieber photos.

The nude photos posted to Gomez’s page were the same ones that circulated back in 2015 from Bieber’s vacation in Bora Bora.

“Like, I feel like I can’t step outside and feel like I can go outside naked,” he said at the time. “Like, you should feel comfortable in your own space… especially that far away.”

Selena currently holds the crown for the world’s most popular Instagram account, with 125 million followers.

Gomez and Bieber have a long history together, dating back to when rumors first circulated of their romance in 2010. They confirmed their relationship in 2011, when they appeared at the Vanity Fair Oscars party together, but subsequently broke up. Their relationship had been on-again off-again ever since, though they haven’t publicly dated for at least the past year.


While Taylor Swift’s new comeback single, “Look What You Made Me Do,” has fans and critics alike debating its merits, an unexpected source has come out to put the song’s lyrics front and center.

Right-wing website, Breitbart News, tweeted out the lyrics to Swift’s new single as captions for stories this past Saturday.

The Swift-penned captions were oddly fitting for the corresponding stories, making for an oddly meta experience. Swift has yet to comment on the bizarre tweet storm.

Meanwhile, Taylor’s new self-referencing video for “Look What You Made Me Do” set a record for most-viewed music video in one 24-hour period. Actually, it took less than 24 hours for the clip – in which Taylor both pokes fun at herself and introduces her fierce new persona – to rack up 28 million views. At its peak, it received over three million views per hour. At midnight, it was setting at over 44 million views.

As a result, the video out-drew “Despacito,” which got 22 million views in 24 hours, and Adele’s “Hello,” which racked up 27 million views.

The lyric video for “Look What You Made Me Do” also set a record: it grabbed 19 million views in 24 hours. That broke the record for the most views for a lyric video: the previous record was held by The Chainsmokers’ “Something Just Like This,” which garnered 9 million views. At midnight Taylor’s was sitting at over 45 million views.


Kesha was forced to sit on the floor during the 2017 MTV VMAs because her seat was “lost.” The singer posted a photo of her having to sit on the floor with the caption, “the vmas lost our seats so …..,” with some emoji champagne bottles and the painting nails emoji.

Kesha took the stage during the show to send a powerful message about suicide. “It takes great courage to show the vulnerable side of being human. And we all have that vulnerable side. Whatever you are going through, however dark it may seem, there is an undeniable truth and strength in the fact that you are not alone. We all have struggles. And as long as you never give up on yourself, light will break through the darkness,” she said.

Logic took the stage to perform “1-800-273-8255” with Alessia Cara and Khalid. The song title is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline phone number. They were joined on stage by suicide loss and attempt survivors wearing shirts with the phone number on the front and the phrase “You Are Not Alone” written on the back. 

It appears the message worked, as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline experienced a 50% increase in calls after the performance, according to the Lifeline’s Director of Communications Frances Gonzalez.

“Logic’s performance of ‘1-800-273-8255’ on the MTV VMAs last night delivered a positive message that has had and will continue to have a lasting impact,” Gonzalez said in a statement. “Sharing that healing and hope are possible helps individuals in crisis, [and] as changes the conversation around suicide from one of isolation to one of hope and connection.” 


Sunday night at the MTV Video Music Awards, Zayn Malik and Taylor Swift won the Moon Person for Best Collaboration, for their duet “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever.” Neither one was on hand to accept the award – their friend Jack Antonoff did it for them – but Zayn posted a special thank you video that seems to be teasing a new project.

The clip features the words, “Thank you MTV. Thank you VMAs. Thank you Taylor. Thank you Zquad” flashing on a black screen with a ticking sound in the background. Then we see Zayn wearing a suit, sitting at a table about to open a briefcase. He undoes the locks and there is a suggestion of an explosion. That’s followed by the words “Coming soon.”

Zayn has hinted that his sophomore album is pretty much finished so that may be what he is teasing.
