buttockssquare(PNS reporting from HOLLYWOOD) Selena Gomez plans to sue the National Security Agency for photographing her naked and publishing the photos on the Internets last week, according to a statement just released by her attorney.

“Ms. Gomez was minding her own business, just watching some YouTube videos while she got dressed for a Hollywood function,” Century City lawyer Nigel Zucker told reporters at a press conference here Tuesday morning.

“The NSA illegally hacked the camera on her Dell Latitude E7240 thin and light UltraBook running Windows 8.1 and took several unauthorized videos and photos of her au naturel. If that’s what they mean by Intel Inside, we won’t have any part of it!”

“Ms. Gomez is a victim here and we intend to use the law to bring the responsible parties to justice,” the attorney told the media at a hastily-called Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel briefing. “She didn’t even know these photos existed until they showed up online! Thanks for nothing, Obama!”

A poorly thought-out pieing plan can backfire, leaving the pie thrower to deal with unintended consequences (see video, above.) Helpful, illustrated hypertext pie […]
