(Newser) – This is even bigger than Kanye West snatching her microphone away at the MTV Awards. Taylor Swift is threatening to sue a celebrity website for posting a topless photo of a skinny blond in blue undies who may or may not be her, Huffington Post reports. The site, Celeb Jihad, says it's probably her, considering the pic's wood paneling (which suggests a "double-wide trailer") and the strawberry images on her underwear ("Taylor Swift has been known to eat strawberries").

Hardly amused, Swift's lawyers fired off a letter this weekend accusing Celeb Jihad of posting "false pornographic images and false 'news,'" TMZ reports. Like Scarlett Johannson, Swift hardly takes such things lying down: She once wrote a song and made a video over a single bad review, Entertainment Weekly reminds us. As for Celeb Jihad, it posted today that "we will remove the article if Taylor Swift simply agrees to convert to Islam. ... Allahu Akbar!"
