Why are they wrong? Why are they right?
In my humble opinion, both sides are not right. However, the paparazzi reasons are more sensible, than the silly “There’s something outrageous, illegal and immoral about all of that,” that Mr. Sunshine (haha, smile, Mr. Sunshine!) says in the following CNN articles.
I’ve already rant and rant about this same issue. Sometimes, yes, paparazzi get too far. Case and point, Natalie Portman in Argentina being pushed around, so they could get a clear shot of her face. Yeah, it blows. But agents should stop blaming the paparazzi, and start urging their clients’ fans to stop being interested in the damn things! Paparazzi are only doing their job, which has evolved from the insane interest people have on celebrities. I am even guilty of that! So I include myself in this insanity. However, I have stopped for a while now… so think about it.
If all the fans around the world stop looking at paparazzi pictures, there will be NO DEMAND on their pictures, making them FIND A NEW JOB TO PAY THE BILLS. This is no rocket science, nor the most effin’-taboulos new discovery.
So it all goes back to the people. Get it, Mr. Sunshine? It’s not the IMMORALITY of the paparazzi who hangs around the celebrity home, it’s the IMMORALITY of the fan who WANTS and CHOOSES to buy or search ANY of those images to mind YOUR CLIENTS’ businesses. But, hey! You live off of these fans who buy your clients’ products, watch your clients’ films, and listen to your clients’ music.
In the end, celebrities will either have to appeal to their fans’ good nature to leave them the EFF alone… or just effin’ accept this evolution of celebrity stalkers… and just give the paparazzi what your effin’ fans bloody want!
