NEW YORK (PIX11) — Taylor Swift has three words for the people who hijacked her social media accounts, “hackers gonna hack.”

According to US Magazine, the hackers are threatening to release nude photos of Swift in exchange for bitcoins.

Early Tuesday morning the site’s fourth most followed user appeared to be hacked.

The hacker tweeted to Swift’s 51.3 followers to follow @lizzard and @veriuser.

Both accounts have since been suspended and the tweets have been removed.

Shortly after, hackers gained control of Swift’s Instagram telling users to follow @Trash.

Swift gave a shout-out to Paramore lead singer Hayley Williams for notifying her of the hack.

She took to her Tumblr account to assure her fans that everything was under control.

“My Twitter got hacked  but don’t worry, Twitter is deleting the hacker tweets and locking my account until they can figure out how this happened and get me new passwords,” said Swift. “Never a dull moment.”

As for the nude photos, Swift says hackers can have fun with Photoshop.

The “Shake it Off” singer even cracked a joke about the hackers.

Swift is currently on vacation in Hawaii with the Haim sisters.
