The site now forwards to her Facebook fan page, but this morning it had been replaced by a not-suitable-for-work page of expletives and offensive music.
The page, which featured an image of rapper Lil B, included a tirade from the hackers in which they claim to have passwords of Justin Bieber, Def Jam, Klaxons and Lady Gaga fans.
Declaring themselves a collection of proud gay black people, they make it clear they are not affiliated with hacking collective Anonymous, going as far as taunting the group as "middle school nerds" who "don't know what they're doing".
"The goal of SwagSec are 2 take back the Internet from the white devil [sic]," said their statement, going on to suggest that black people have had no say on the internet. "Now we takin' it back."
SwagSec link to a page detailing their hacking methods, and unveil the identity of a rival hacker known as RoMeO, detailing his home address in Saudi Arabia, his telephone number, aliases, passwords and private online conversations.
Finally, the hacked page offers a "shout out to Lil B," who is a gay rights advocate. This year he named his new album 'I'm Gay' in support of the LGBT community, although the rapper is a heterosexual.
As this story was going to press, the SwagSec Twitter feed announced they had also replaced the website for soul singer Lauren Pritchard with a flashing page of offensive Lil B lyrics.
In similar news, Tiny Mix Tapes report that a separate hacking group called AntiSec have retrieved secret information from the major record label Universal. "AntiSec vessels have a very large cache of valuable goods aboard," said the group. "The crews are currently working hard to sort the loot in a way that even the lousy media sailboats are able to just grab it and sail away for the horizon. You will hear from us very soon."
