As we all know, there has been a “leak” of celebrity nudes on the internet thanks to an unknown hacker(s). First Kim Kardashian, then this morning, Meagan Good, Rihanna, Gabrielle Union and Iggy Azalea.
Most people were not surprised by Kim’s or Rihanna’s but Iggy’s was by far one of the worst.
According to Inflexwetrust.com, Gabrielle and Dwayne Wade released joint statements that said, “It has come to our attention that our private moments, that were shared and deleted solely between my husband and myself, have been leaked by some vultures.”
They added, “I can’t help but be reminded that since the dawn of time women and children, specifically women of color, have been victimized, and the power over their own bodies taken from them. These atrocities against women and children continue worldwide. For anyone out there also being affected by these and other hacking and hate crimes – We send our love, support and prayers. We have done nothing wrong.”
Along with this, Gabrielle and Dwayne are having the FBI investigate who the hacker was. Following behind their steps Meagan Good released a statement as well. Good has been getting a lot of criticism via the internet (with memes) the fact that her husband, DeVon Franklin is a well-known pastor has a lot to do with it.
“We all know these pictures were for my husband… and at the end of the day evidently we all know how I feel about my titties,” She said.
What is your opinion on this story? Is the thought that someone can just hack your phone frightening? Or are the celebrities at blame?
A week after VIBE magazine shut down officially, XXL magazine is set to follow.
The hip-hop magazine has been around for 17 years. It made sure that fans received all the news on rap music the old fashioned way, before the internet/blogosphere took over. With technology taking over this generation’s attention, young readers find online publications more attractive than the print ones. Therefore, XXL was bought out by Townsquare Media.
The October/November edition of XXL, currently at the printers, will be the final edition of the magazine. Ben Harris, the president of Harris Publications, which began publishing XXL in 1997, said, “We incubated something digitally, but the Townsquare people can take it to the next level with their digital expertise.”
Although most buy-outs lead to layoffs, Bill Wilson, the chief content officer of Townsquare says that “11 XXL editorial and digital ad sales team employees will be offered jobs.”
Wilson also added that it is possible that the publication will return to print for rare, special issues. “We think XXL has strong potential in both the digital and live events market,” he added.
Is there a possibility that all media will eventually discontinue printed publications? With XXL being around for so many years, is it fair to the audience to just discontinue the magazine? What’s your opinion?
