Leaked Nudes To Become “Art”

Jennifer Lawrence was one of the celebs caught in the leaked nudes disaster and unfortunately for her and the others (like Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst) the photos aren’t going away anytime soon — in fact, they’re going to be featured as “art”. From E!:

Despite plenty of outrage from the public, Cory Allen Contemporary Art and artist XVALA are proceeding with their upcoming art show, “No Delete,” which will feature provocative images of the A-list stars.

“The artist sees these images as art,” Cory Allen explained to E! News. “[They are] a representation of someone or something that has a different meaning for everyone. Transforming those images to canvas presents them in a different light. It makes them real.”

Last week, CACA announced the leaked images will be life-size, unaltered and printed on canvases. The “art” will be held at a showroom in Saint Petersburg, Fla.

Despite several stars threatening legal action against anyone who posts the photos, Allen says what they’re doing doesn’t deserve legal ramifications.

“Our goal was not to do anything illegal. It was for XVALA to create art; to follow through with his vision for this project and for me to promote it,” Allen explained to E! News. “We have not been contacted by anyone.”

Okay, a few things. First, this reminds me of something Andy Warhol would do, although he’d definitely alter the images with his famous brightly colored silk screening technique. Secondly, I’m all for “art”, but I think this needs to die. What happened to these women was basically a sex crime. Their private photos were leaked, and it doesn’t matter how it happened — what matters is that it happened and it was a terrible invasion of privacy, and it should stop. Thirdly, this seems like a really lame excuse for art. But those are just my opinions.

What do you guys think? Would you see the exhibit? When it comes to art, is anything up for grabs?

Jennifer Lawrence’s nude photos leak and the internet loses its mind

Sorry, unfortunately I won’t be posting Jennifer Lawrence‘s leaked nudes here on Evil Beet – not because it would be morally wrong (it would, but I would probably overlook it) but because we would probably get hit with a lawsuit, since that’s what her rep is threatening to do to whoever puts them up.

Some anonymous hacker on 4Chan apparently got hold of over 25 celebrity’s iCloud pics, and it’s amazing how many famous women really love taking pics of their own tits and ass. JLaw was by far the most heavy hit, with the hacker claiming to have over 60 nude selfies (paging Kim Kardashian!) and also some raw sexual video of the Hunger Games actress. Other celebrities hit include Victoria Justice, Kate Upton, Amber Heard, Ariana Grande and Cara Delevingne. In other words, a lot of people whose bits and bobs we’ve all seen already in some form or another.


Most of the ladies and/or their reps tend to be taking the “They’re totally fake, you guys!” route, but JLaw’s pretty much owned up to being starkers (seriously, one of the photos include her on a couch with EVERYTHING out) and her rep is NOT happy about it:

“This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”

Damn. In any case, the VERY NSFW thread over on /b/ can be seen HERE if you want to have a look at the photos (assuming you haven’t already). It’s pretty disgusting that people would hack into someone’s private information and post it publicly, but I do also wonder why celebrities haven’t realized that truly NOTHING is private – it’s the very unfortunate price you pay when you’re in the public eye. Part of me want to say, “Stop taking pictures of your boobs and vagina, ladies!” – but why should they have to? It’s not personally my thing, but you can tell by a lot of the leaked pics, especially of JLaw’s, that some were meant to be playful and silly and between herself and whoever the recipient was, NOT seriously sexual.

Remember, some dude went to prison for 10 years in 2012 after hacking Scarlett Johansson‘s phone and posting nude pics, so if this anonymous hacker is found out, it’s curtains.

Chris Martin loves Jennifer Lawrence because she’s nothing like Gwyneth Paltrow

One of the stranger rumours/confirmed stories (?) making the rounds over the last week is that Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are a new couple. Neither of their spokespeople have denied the romance yet and magazines are still reporting it, so it could be true – who knows? If it is true, The Sun (via Daily Mail) claims to know exactly why these two are so well suited: Jennifer is the anti-Goop.

‘Jennifer is loads of fun and they can’t stop laughing when they are together,’ a source told The Sun newspaper.

‘Chris feels he is dating someone who has everything he’s been missing out on in the past 11 years.

Friends believe that Jennifer is good for Chris following his split in March from clean-living 41-year-old Gwyneth.

Gwyneth is renowned for her healthy diet and strict fitness routine, while Jennifer smokes and enjoys tucking into pizza.

The source said Chris feels the Hunger Games star has given him a ‘new lease of life.’

‘Jennifer doesn’t take herself too seriously and when she is not filming she just wants to hang out and have a good time,’ the source added.

I mean, obviously the “source” is a summer intern who was told to make up some quotes, but I can see how this one could have a bit of truth to it. Gwyneth Paltrow has a stick so far up her ass, I’m surprised it’s not coming straight out of her mouth on the other end. I imagine it would be a welcome relief to be around someone who’s a bit less worried about whether or not a nitrate sneaked into her organic, greenhouse grown lettuce leaf.

I really hope this is actually happening. I love the idea of Chris and Jennifer as a couple!
