Paparazzi and Hollywood

The headline reads, "Police: Paparazzi, guards, fight at Jolie chateau." The article goes on to say, " The (French) police captain said she had no information on the nationalities or the names of the photographers. "I won't hide for you that this kind of thing is really not the type of problem that interests us," she said. "There are, in my opinion, far more important things than paparazzi taking photos of a glamor couple." '

I like this police officer! Let the photographers and bodyguards fight it out. These "glamor couples" create an image of themselves, charge millions for pictures of their, usually illegitimate, children, and then complain when photographers slip around to take pictures of them. A certain Princess, who would have done well to have stayed at home with her children, instead of creating an image of an international playgirl messing with an international playboy, was killed trying to foolishly outrun photographers.

In this country the police get involved because they feel that these people are important and police always like to hang around important people. Because of photographers, the police in California actually escorted Britney "you can take the girl out of the trailer park, but you can't take the trailer park out of the girl" Spears from her home either to a hospital or drying out house. I can't recall which, and it isn't important enough to take time to look it up. Can you imagine how much that city police department has spent "protecting" a rich bimbo, who can't take care of herself?

Such "news" used to be relegated to the movie magazines and grocery store tabloids. Now it makes tv news and newspaper headlines. I don't care if some movie star has children. I don't care if one of them adopts a child. I feel sorry for the children, who will probably grow up as mal-adjusted drug addicts, if they follow the suit of so many Hollywood children. If some magazine is stupid enough to pay millions for pictures of these children, let them do it, but it isn't headlines, and I don't want to hear whining from these rich "self important" people who think they shouldn't be bothered.
