Recently I was watching a show on E! that featured a bunch of celebrity run-ins with the paparazzi and the chaos that ensued. It was interesting watching the celebs flip, but what I'm wondering is, why do these celebs get mad? Afterall, they are famous people and the photographers have a job to do, which would be photographing famous people! Certain celebs go out of their way to look stupid buy getting into fights or in the case of Demi Moore, covering her head with a shirt when they were photographing her in her car. Yeah real smart, Demi, lotta good that did. So why would a star flip when the paparazzi is already capturing them on film or tape? It's after the fact unless the star demands to have the film confiscated(not sure that can be done anyway) there's not much that can be done other than go about your business and not look like a complete ass by trying to fight the paparazzi. Sure you can tell them to piss off but most of the time they don't listen, so again what's the use? I love it when certain celebrities confront the paparazzi and ask them what they're doing. WTF? You seriously don't know what these people are doing and why they're doing it? Does fame bring an instant drop in a person's intelligence level? Then sometimes you've got someone in the celebs entourage, usually a relative or the boyfriend of their pal, almost attacking the paparazzi trying to get them to stop taking pictures as if E.T. was dying right in front of them and only their yelling can bring him back to life. Ok that was a pretty lame analogy but it's the first that came to mind. Granted I understand the privacy issues, but usually the stars are being photographed in public places like outside clubs, restaurants, etc. You don't have to smile! Just go about your business and carry on without looking like an ass in front of plenty of cameras. Is that so difficult?
