A Canadian man has admitted to hacking into pop star Carly Rae Jepson's computer and streaming naked pictures of her.

According to Billboard, David Long, 25, of Abbotsford, British Columbia pleaded guilty to charges of mischief and possession of stolen property before a scheduled court hearing yesterday (May 28).

Police in Vancouver first announced charges against Long for criminal harassment in December 2012, after naked photos of the singer had appeared online. Long initially faced five charges, including unauthorised use of a computer and fraudulently obtaining telecommunications services.

Earlier this month, Carly Rae Jepsen was announced as one of the most streamed artists of the last 12 months, according to the Official Charts Company. To mark the one-year anniversary of the Official Streaming Chart, the list was compiled of the Top 20 most streamed artists over the past 52 weeks. Fun's 'We Are Young' was the most streamed audio track of the year, having topped the chart for four weeks at Number One last spring.

Close behind in second place was Carly Rae Jepsen's 'Call Me Maybe'. The track, which was the first ever Official Streaming Chart Number One, was followed in the Top 5 by Lumineers' 'Ho Hey', 'Don't You Worry Child' by Swedish House Mafia and Rihanna's 'Diamonds'.
