A new batch of nude selfies supposedly belonging to celebrities like Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Lake Bell and Avril Lavigne hit the web over the weekend, flooding Twitter and Reddit. It's unclear whether this new batch of photos, coming three weeks after the massive iCloud hacking celebrity photo leak, are authentic, and reps for the women have had no comment. But you know who does have a comment? Clay Aiken. Because obviously everyone was waiting for him to chime in on the subject. "Anybody who takes inappropriate pictures of themselves deserves exactly what they get," Aiken tells the Washington Post. "Of course whoever [stole and released the photos] should be hogtied. And it's unfortunate that we don't have Internet security right now or the laws in place to protect people from pirating that stuff." Maybe Aiken, who is running for a congressional seat in North Carolina, can make that part of his platform: admonishing people for their personal choices and trying to stop "pirating and stuff." Has a nice ring to it.
