We know that the interwebz loves a good scandal — heck, we all love a good scandal — but this really was a huge case of false alarm. Mostly, we’ve learned that it’s one of three things that really make people go bananas: a big divorce a la Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, a celebrity sex tape or nude photograph leaks. Yesterday’s sort-of scorcher fell into the last category. A couple of topless photographs, which people thought were of Carly Rae Jepsen, surfaced yesterday, and they quickly did the rounds. We admit the girl looked a bit like the “Call Me Maybe” singer, but on closer look, it totally wasn’t her. But the resemblance was enough for folks, it seems. Take a look at the NSFW photographs here and judge for yourselves. More so, people were abuzz about the fact that the maybe-Carly had pierced nipples!
The singer’s team has kicked into high gear and is putting the gossip firmly to bed. One of Carly’s spokespeople told TMZ, “This is 200% NOT Carly.” Her record label is even going to start handing out cease-and-desists for anyone who still insists that’s her in the pictures. But it really isn’t, guys. It’s a 21-year-old model named Destiny Benedict who herself tweeted, “egotastic being mistaken for carly Rae… Anal maybe?” And if that wasn’t perfectly clear, she also tweeted, “Well I just want to say this Carly Rae is a beautiful girl and i’m honored to have been mistaken as her.” See? Case closed.
