Youssou Ndour , the singer best known for his hit song 7 Seconds, has reportedly become the latest celebrity to fall victim to apparent leaked nude photos scandal. Highly personal and private photographs from his mobile phone were posted on several celebrity gossip websites yesterday.
Celebrities and nude photo scandals seem to go hand-in-hand. The 54-year-old singer’s nude photos were leaked online through hacked phone on Thursday (October 3, 2013) and spread across the internet like wildfire. “The FBI is aware of the alleged hacking incident and is looking into it,” an FBI official told the press.

The editor of a Senegalese celebrity gossip magazine defended its use of the photos, citing there was “a clear public interest in publishing the Youssou N'Dour pictures, in order for the debate around them to be fully informed.” That's also why we, at Mediamass, decided to publishall the nude photos. In public interest and just for the sake of information.

Five nude photos (apparently “hacked” from his phone) have surfaced and spread across the internet:
The nude figures photos were probably taken by the singer with his phone, during a visit at the Louvre Museum in Paris earlier this month. Some of you may recognize the nude “Grand Odalisque” by French painter Ingres, the nude “Sainte Marie-Madeleine” by German artist Gregor Erhart, a Roman marble of a nude wounded Gaul, an Egyptian nude porcelain doll, and probably a picture of convalescent Spinee playing with a tennis ball (while the latter is unlikely to be linked to the nude photo scandal).
Besides being a talented singer, business man and politician, Youssou N'Dour seems to also nurture a secret passion for fine art and nude photography.
The FBI is investigating celebrity phone, email hacking. Meanwhile the singer leaked nude photos are making a sensation on the internet.
