I can’t imagine that Cassie was particularly happy when her nude photos (leaked last week, quite possibly by her) ended up getting overshadowed by a subsequent crop of nude photos, allegedly of fellow R&B/pop singer and Chris Brown punching bag Rihanna. And I’m sure Cassie thought that this would get her some much needed buzz, as any buzz not involving her dalliances with The Ad Hoc Award-Demanding Mouth-Breather could be viewed as good buzz.

(For those of you reading this at work, it goes without saying that clicking on just about any link within this post could get you fired. Should that happen, this Web site is not to be held responsible for your new-found unemployment. You deserved it.)

Last week, a couple of topless photos [1,2] hit the Internets, which were very obviously of Cassie (pre-crazy haircut), and which she soon thereafter acknowledged via Twitter, and then her Web site:

The recent personal pictures that have been leaked on the internet of me were hacked and stolen out of my computer. These photos were obviously never intended for the world to see and it’s sad that people would really take time to steal and post them, it’s just evil. At the end of the day breasts are breasts, mine weren’t the first you’ve seen and they won’t be the last… people need to grow up, let’s move on. Thank you.

It was soon after that statement that this photo hit the Internets, showing Cassie (or someone who looks an awful lot like her) in a much more explicit (and blurrier) pose. As of the weekend, the singer still hasn’t commented on that one, and as such, it’s still up the air as to whether or not it’s really her. As a follow-up to the wacky shaved-head stunt from several months back, it would appear as if this is the latest in a string of publicity stunts in which Cassie’s trying to get some attention. But the crazy SWERVE at the end of this post alleges to disprove that hypothesis.

Not to be outdone, though, Rihanna’s pics show her taking photos of herself, both partially naked in the bathroom and a lot more naked while in front of a mirror. We already knew she had pierced nipples, but these pics show us a bit more from the singer. [Editor’s Note/UPDATE: Def Jam has started sending out cease-and-desist letter to Web sites posting the aforementioned photos, so see these while you still can.]

At least three of these would be obviously Rihanna, as they contain a face shot, but the rest of the pics (especially including the full-frontal, pierced-nipple shot) tend to be consistent with that which we have seen.

While this might seem like just a case of two R&B singers trying to out-smut each other, insiders have allegedly been in contact with a mad hax0r, who has had these photos since last year (and has been trying to shop them to the highest bidder in that time, but with no takers), and claims to have even more, including more of Rihanna, more of Cassie, and also pics of Jennifer Lopez, Jamie Foxx and Christina Milian.

Wow, so it seems that Cassie’s statement about teh hax0r might actually be a truthful one. Let the speculating commence! Is Chris Brown behind the Rihanna pics? Is Diddy behind the Cassie pics? Are there really some naked shots of J. Lo’s supple posterior floating around out there? How does the swine flu factor into all of this? SMELL THE RATINGS!!!
