Guest Editorial: Jennifer Lawrence’s Photohack Is A Threat To All Celebrities


September 3, 2014 - Culture

by Kanye West

This weekend, nude photos taken in private of Jennifer Lawrence were released, apparently the result of a phone hacker who took it upon himself to invade Ms. Lawrence’s personal accounts. Some will blame the victim. Personally, I know this could have happened to anyone.

For example, while I’m not proud of it, one weekend Kim was away and I started flexing nude in the mirror. I’m not gonna lie, I was a little turned on. I mean, it was me, Kanye, flexing in the mirror. I took several photos of myself and sent them to Kim. It’s crazy to realize that that private moment between me and my boo could have been exposed before the whole world.

I looked good, too. I had just worked out and was soaked in sweat. Kim sometimes tells me that I am her private Lebron James. Sometimes I think she’s just being flattering, but I see where she’s coming from. Plus it was warm outside, if you know what I mean. I believe it is just a matter of luck that these photos have stayed private. What else could it be?

If these photos had been released, I would be enraged. I would be particularly enraged if someone hacked into my email, (I am still working on buying the first 41 email accounts.) My email is a sanctuary of private information and it doesn’t matter how publicly available the answers to my security questions are; clicking on the folder, “Jesus, Yeezus, ya finnneeeeee” and accessing and publishing on the internet photos of me disrobed would be simply wrong.

I know you are thinking, “But Kanye, you have nothing to be ashamed of.” I know, I know.

But please don’t do it.
