Hayley Williams, lead singer of Paramore, took to Twitter Thursday evening to tell all her 600,000 plus followers that her Twitter account had been hacked. Â Apparently, a picture of Hayley Williams topless was posted on her account without her permission. Â But was the half- naked Twitpic really hacked? Â Was it placed on her Twitter account for all to see as a prank?

But deleting it did not stop the half- naked picture of the Paramore singer laying on a bed with her breasts exposed from making the rounds on the internet, nor did it stop the bloggers and the social networkers from debating whether or not someone actually hacked into Hayley Williams’ Twitter account or if it was done as a publicity stunt. Â Because that debate has become standard with regard to racy, naked, or topless pictures that wind up on the internet by being hacked, stolen, sent to the wrong person, or used without the permission of the “victim.”
And the debate always leads to the same conclusion: If one never wants a naked picture or video of themselves to ever appear on the internet, then one must never allow oneself to be photographed or videotaped naked. Â Period.
Regardless of whether or not the Paramore singer did it herself or actually got hacked, she got a lot of love from her fans. Â She took to Twitter again: Â “Always knew we had the greatest fans. Thank you so much for all the support. Overwhelming.”
Hayley Williams also posted, “Today is a new day. Gonna keep my head up high.”
