And this is crazy
But i've nicked your photos
I've hacked you baby #

Carly Rae Jepsen - yes, her of the "Call Me Maybe" (potentially one-hit-wonder) song-of-the-year-so-far - has lodged a complaint to the Vancouver Police Department after allegedly having naked photos stolen from her personal computer.

According to TMZ, Jepsen went to the Vancouver Police Department about a possible hacking situation back in March.

Const. Lindsey Houghton from the Vancouver Police Department confirmed:

"We began an investigation. That investigation is into the unauthorized use of a computer, theft of telecommunications and the criminal harassment of Miss Jepsen."

"At this time, one suspect — an adult male — has been identified. He has not been arrested, he has not been charged and the investigation is continuing."

Poor old Carly, it was only on Monday when she took to Twitter to deny that a sex video of someone who looked remarkably like her was actually, in fact, not her.

"Crazy morning. Discovered that someone put up a sex tape claiming to be me. Ridiculous. Obviously not me."

And now she joins the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus who have also all fallen victim to cybercriminals.

Celebrities may have chosen to be in the public eye, but they deserve some level of privacy, especially when it comes to private files stored on their personal computers.

But, like the rest of us, they are capable of being a bit neglectful when it comes to computer security.

So, celebrities, if you're reading this - if you must take naked pictures of yourself, at least store them securely. Or perhaps take the advice that we gave Mila Kunis.

    Sorry, I don't believe these are accidents. If you want to find the hacker, why not call their publicists, agents, movie studios...?

    I just don't get this thing with young people and them taking pictures of their junk. Maybe I'm just getting old. Now get off my lawn!

    > her of the "Call Me Maybe" (potentially one-hit-wonder)...

    So, not a fan then? :-)

    Would you admit to the pics. Likely not. I don't think she's a one hit wonder though. If Usher mentored Bieber, I would think Bieber will take care of getting her good music material for a follow up. She is awesome.

    I really don't see the point in denying it, if it was you.
    Everyone has sex. Big deal these days..............

    When someone says "ridiculous" you know it probably will be them :)

    In all honesty, if they don't want these photos and videos being stolen and leaked online DON'T make them, and for the love of god don't send em through email. simple solution to the complaining celebrities! On the other hand they could be doing it themselves, do you notice that the celebrities become even more popular when this kind of thing happens. Marketing 101.

    Progresso Chicken Noodle Soup and one of Thomas's English Muffins. Sounds good to me!

    IF YOU DOESN'T WANT YOUR NAKED PHOTOS TO BE SEEN - DON'T MAKE THEM!
