Lauren Jauregui captured the media’s attention earlier this week with the release of intimate photographs from a shoot with reported ex-girlfriend Lucy Vives. The attention isn’t going anywhere and Lauren has had enough. Despite the fact that she shared a very personal glimpse into her private life, Lauren has choice words for “every single media outlet” focusing on her private life.
It doesn’t seem like she truly meant to attack all of the reports, but rather the media outlets that are sexualizing the photographs. Lauren’s previous response to the media attention better clarifies her complaint.
It does, however, seem odd to later follow up with this general privacy request after Lauren made the decision to share photos from her personal life. Over-sexualization is obviously a hot topic and an issue worth addressing, but the photographer behind the coming out project—one of Lauren’s close friends—explained the photos as disarming, empowering and, to Lauren’s current disdain, sensual.
What do you make of Lauren’s outburst? Is it justified?
