Celeb Hacker Release on a $10,000 Bond

Celeb hacker Christopher Chaney – who is known for releasing some intimate photos of Scarlett Johansson (…and Mila Kunis, and a whole lot of other starlets!) was arrested by the FBI.

The 35 year old man from Jacksonville, Florida, was charged with hacking into celebrity email accounts in a computer invasion scheme. He was also charged with 26 counts of identity theft, unauthorized access to a protected computer and wiretapping. If convicted, he faces up to 121 years in jail (yes, you read that right!).

But to the surprise of everyone, the man was released very shortly after his arrest, on a $10,000 bond after making a court appearance, according to the US Attorney Andre Birotte’s office. However, the release comes with several conditions: no new criminal activity, no possession of firearms, no excessive use of alcohol, pre-trial supervision and drug testing, and so many more.

It is noteworthy that Chaney is linked to hacking over 50 victims, among which are stars like Christina Aguilera. He also hacked Google, Apple and Yahoo email accounts and then hijacked the forwarding feature so that a copy of every email received was sent “virtually instantaneously” to an email account he controlled, according to an indictment handed up in Tuesday by a federal grand jury in LA.

No one’s safe, and nothing stays a secret. We believe this story will make us be more careful what we send and what we save on our email accounts!

Animal Prints in Season

Reese Witherspoon attended the Art Mère/Art Père charity auction in Los Angeles looking cute and adorable in an animal-print dress with a black blazer and black peep-toe heels. The short dress definitely suits American’s Sweetheart, with her legs all nice and toned! Reese was looking good and we’re happy to see her doing fine after being hit by a car.

Animal prints are so in this fall and seem to gain in much popularity by Hollywood stars, and heiresses alike! Here we also see Paris Hilton donning a long, leopard-print green dress while out dining at West Hollywood steakhouse Boa with her heiress friend Petra Ecclestone, who was also wearing a leopard-print black and white top.

Also spotted rocking the animal print style this week is German supermodel and Project Runway host Heidi Klum who looked gorgeous in a beautiful black and white animal print frock for the launch of her first ever fragrance named Shine.

So there’s no doubt that animal prints are a must have for this season!

Minty Gaga?

Lady Gaga wows us again with yet another shocking fashion statement.

The singer was spotted rocking mint green locks and a see-through top while leaving her London hotel. And of course, the look wouldn’t be complete without her matching mint green heels!

As for the pair or corky glasses, well, it’s all for the better!

Even her cheeks were in mint green. Now that’s freaky!

We’re not so sure about this one, but perhaps Lady Gaga was raising awareness about protecting the environment (yeah right!)?

Selena Gomez and her new (Fake or not?) Bangs

Teen sensation Selena Gomez recently tweeted this picture of her, rocking bangs and purple and pink streaks.

It seems like major Hollywood stars are so into the blunt cut at the moment, like Leighton Meester, Rose Byrne and Lea Michele.

And the question we had to ask is: did the Wizards of Waverly Place star really get a haircut, or was she actually wearing a wig?

Either way, the young fashionista’s looking good!

Gossip Time!!! Rihanna Kicked off for Sizzling Shoot

Rihanna stirs things up again in the U.K.!

An Irish farmer kicked the sassy singer off his property when filming on her video for the song “We Found Love” got too stripped down and sexy.

The Barbadian beauty decided to take her bikini top off and flaunt her bare chest in the field, and Alan Graham (land owner) wasn’t too pleased with the scene.

“I felt it was inappropriate”, the farmer told the BBC. “I requested them to stop and they did”.

Graham, who admitted he didn’t know the Grammy award winner, said he spoke to Ri-Ri after the incident and they politely shook hands.

When asked about this subject, Rihanna didn’t address it directly, but she did provide an explanation when asked about her controversial music videos, such as S&M and Man Down.

“That’s not me. That’s a part I play. You know, like it’s a piece of art, with all these toys and textures to play with”, she stated.
