Taylor Swift's social accounts were hacked this week -- but not to worry, everything is under control. And no, there's no nude pics floating around, Swift says.

The 25-year-old singer wrote about the incident on Tumblr: "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. Never a dull moment."
