Guess who's coming to dinner? Amber's t*tties. Again. Yep, earlier this summer, nude snapshots of the soon-to-be Amber Khalifa mysteriously found their way online, and once again, more photos of the bald beauty are available for download, stimulating hard drives around the world.

I'd like to believe that some malicious ex-lover methodically releases nudes of Rose in an attempt to tarnish her legacy. It's at that moment that I remind myself that A) Kanye is way to busy for such a thing and B) What legacy?

Which leads me to the conclusion that Amber is leaking these photos herself to remain relevant. Relevant to who? The people. Relevant for what? To remind us all that, yes, not only is she still alive, she's still beautiful. And don't we dare forget it.

Much like a rapper that may drop a mixtape between albums to remain relevant, celebs may leak a pic, flash a nipple, or drop a sex tape between reality shows in an attempt to keep their brand hot.

Our question of the day, then, is simple: With the struggle to remain relevant bigger than ever, are nude leaks, sextapes and nip slips the new mixtape?

Let's look at a two more celebs whose assets made headlines, and match them up with a mixtape series that best describes their controversial stunt:

Nicki Minaj Nip Slip = Sorry 4 Da Wait Mixtape (Lil Wayne)

I made a vow that before they put me in the dirt, I'd get at look at those vivrant things. My only issue is the long amout of time Nicki made me wait to get a peek. Its OK, though. Apology accepted.

Kim Kardashian Sex Tape = The Champ is Here Mixtape (Jadakiss)

Ray J & Kim Kardashian 

Even though Kim's sextape was only slightly more arousing than an episode of Meet the Brown's, she still managed to use it as a springboard toward fame and even more fortune. Jadakiss' The Champ is Here mixtape series is a perfect fit for two reasons: First, as far as reality TV looks go, Kim is the champ. Second, let's face it: Get a Kardashian and you're pretty much guaranteed to succeed.

Granted, there's only so far a t*tty Twitpic can carry you, but it is good for a headline or two -- on occasion. Eventually though, the people get bored of the teasing and demand talent. And if it becomes time to put up or go away. But for good this time.

SOHH Whatcha Think -- In our attention-starved world, are people dropping nudes like sex tapes?

In Amber's defense, I'm sure she had alotta crooks try to steal her heart. Tunechi cares, if don't nobody else care. Check out the official music video for Lil' Wayne's "How to Love" below:
