Nude Photos of X-Factor Judge Demi Lovato Being Shopped Around?

We've already seen the cell phones of stars like Scarlett Johansson, Vanessa Hudgens, Paris Hilton, Heather Morris, and Blake Lively hacked, and their private photos posted online. Well, today, there's another name to add to this sad list: Radar Online was contacted by someone purportedly in possession of nude images of singer, former Disney star, and X-Factor host Demi Lovato.

Come on, those pictures were meant to be seen ONLY by Lovato herself, and MAYBE some radio call-in contest winners.

While Radar didn't buy the pictures, some website with less scruples will, and then they'll be out there forever.

I get that we have an animalistic part of our brains that demand we see our most attractive fellow human beings naked, but human beings are also self-aware, and we can curb that animal brain and realize that our quick thrills aren't worth the embarrassment it'll cause our fellow human being.

That self-awareness is what lets us cook steak instead of devouring it right from the bones of an animal.

So then why does this keep happening to so many female celebrities? The answer, as we find so often, is Capitalism. The market demands nude pictures of Demi Lovato. It's placed a value on the cell phone-hacking skills of whoever cracked Lovato's phone, and they'll make plenty of money from whatever website ends up buying them. Then, that website will get SO MANY hits.

And at that point, they're already online, the damage is done, so what are we gonna do, not look? We'd be the only ones who don't!

My point is, as long as the demand is there, and the money is there, this will continue to happen and continue to ruin the lives of these women. Capitalism is culpable, sure, but what that really means is that we're all culpable.

I don't know what the answer is, but maybe it would be okay to just stop going to these websites that post hacked cell phone pictures? I get it, no one wants to be the only one who stands up and says "no", but do you think we could all maybe just try a little harder? Be a little better?
