Celebrities and nude photo scandals seem to go hand-in-hand. The 59-year-old politician’s nude photos were leaked online through hacked phone on Tuesday (December 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.
Nude Picture Controversy in German Magazine
The editor of a German celebrity gossip magazine defended its use of the photos, citing there was “a clear public interest in publishing the Angela Merkel pictures, in order for the debate around them to be fully informed.” That's also why we, at Mediamass, decided to publish all the nude photos. In public interest and just for the sake of information.
WARNING: the following pictures may not be suitable for younger or sensitive viewers.

Five nude photos (apparently “hacked” from her phone) have surfaced and spread across the internet:
The nude figures photos were probably taken by the politician with her 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 convalescing Spinee playing with a tennis ball (while the latter is unlikely to be linked to the nude photo scandal).
Besides being a talented politician, Angela Merkel seems to also nurture a secret passion for fine art and nude photography.
The FBI is investigating the celebrity phone and email hacking case. Meanwhile the politician leaked nude photos are making a sensation on the internet.
