"As entertainment industry bible Variety has reported, someone recently hijacked actor Selena Gomez's account to post Justin Beiber nudes."

Duuude, that's like breaking into Fort Knox to steal their toilet paper! ☺

Justin Who?

Saw the little whippersnapper amble into the Arrival Hall at Hong Kong Airport a few years ago. Such a monumentally ordinary-looking kid his management told him to carry a skateboard under his arm, and still would have faded into the background if it weren’t for the fact that his minders were walking 5 yards behind trying their best to look cool and aloof. Did not matter one way or another ‘cos there was no crowd of screaming girls waiting for him.

If he arrived tomorrow on the same plane as the latest K-Pop idol it will be the K-Popster getting ALL the attention.

"who'd obtained her e-mail or phone number through the API"

Surely you mean her PR agency's e-mail or phone number? Or that of whoever the PR agency have subcontracted to manage their so-called "social" so-called "media" so-called "presence"?

"Justin Bieber's bare butt popped"

Dammit, I don't come here to read Variety blurbs. I really really really don't CARE when he farts, or on whom he farts.

This could be how Justin Bieber's bare butt popped out

Nah. It was because he was dumb enough to pull his pants down in front of a camera.
