The topless twitpic of the redheaded singer staring into the camera was posted on Thursday and sent to Williams’ more than 600,000 followers before getting removed. But at that point, it was too late, as the photo made its way to a gossip sites all across the Net within hours.
Some reports said that the photo appeared to be posted by Williams accidentally, but the frontwoman claims her account was hacked. She tweeted, “Well … my night just changed drastically. Got hacked.”
Williams recently shot the video for B.o.B.’s “Airplanes,” one of MTV News’ candidates for summer jam of 2010. Paramore head out on the road for the Honda Civic Tour (along with Tegan and Sara, New Found Glory and Kadawatha) beginning July 23 in Raleigh, North Carolina.
She joins a long list of female celebrities who’ve had their private photos leaked onto the web, including Ashley Greene , Vanessa Hudgens , Miley Cyrus , Megan Fox (which were actually fake photos) and Cassie .
At press time, Williams had not made any further comments on the incident, and a spokesperson for Paramore’s label could not be reached for comment.
