Last season, the American Idol television show was rocked by scandal when naked pictures of three of the top twenty-four contestants were made available for viewing on the internet. That scandal has continued into 2008 and Season #7 as naked pictures of at least eight have been discovered (including naked males this time).
In all of the pictures, the contestants are seen completely unclothed or slightly covered with a blanket. All are smiling and most have little or no hair (reminiscent of Britney Spears from February of 2007). Some of the shots show only rear or upper body nudity, while others show exposed male and female genitalia (and all of these pictures display the singers in a shaved/hairless form).
As all of the singers were under age when these pictures were taken, and some are in provocative poses, the Attorney General of the State of California (where American Idol is produced and filmed) is going to open an investigation into child pornography.
When asked, one contestant, who preferred to remain nameless, said "It's a damned baby picture! We're all bare ass naked in our baby pictures! If you think naked babies on blue throw rugs are sexual, then you are one sick pervert."
Since breaking this story, the naked pictures of those eight American Idol contestants have become the most viewed photographs the Yahoo Images and Google Images.
