Angela Aguilar is a singer and songwriter from Mexico. She recently got a lot of attention after a private photo of her with the composer Gussy Lau was posted online and became public. The photo quickly went viral on social media, and people were worried about the big age gap between the two people in the photo. After the scandal, Aguilar went to Instagram to talk about it. She said the invasion of privacy made her sad, unhappy, and violated.
I feel sorry, disappointed… My soul is in pain. There have been some pictures that I didn’t want to be seen, but they have been shown anyway. I felt assaulted. I feel like my privacy and ability to make my own decisions about my life, body, and appearance have been violated.
The singer also said that a close friend was the one who leaked the photo to the media:
It kills me to have been hurt by someone I never thought I would, said the person speaking. Aguilar then protested the invasion of privacy and said that she has the right to decide which parts of her personal life she wants to make public and that she deserves to have that freedom: She said, This is an invasion of my privacy and of my right to choose what to say, what not to say, what to get, and what not to get because I think I deserve that choice. What should I say? What don’t I tell you? What do I say? What do I not say?”
What did Gussy Lau say about the fuss over the picture?

Okay, it looks like things will work out between us, and to keep this explanation from being too long, we started going out around the middle of February.
