I don't trust them. It's the whole package that is bad, not just the pictures taken by intrusive photographers. The stories that accompany the photographs are really tasty and help sell magazines and papers. I confess that my curiosity sometimes gets the better of me and I enjoy (or at least can't resist looking at) some inappropriate photographs. Not necessarily rude pictures but you know the celebrity probably didn't want the picture taken. The scandalous photos are the best.

Actually you can't blame them since it's their job to get pictures of celebrities but sometimes they do cross the line. If someone gets physically hurt, it might be bad. You also can't say that celebrities get emotionally hurt because what we see in the pictures however illegal they maybe are actually their actions (except when it's photoshopped). The fact that you are seen and being chased by the paparazzi is part of the package that your life is somewhat owned by the public. Difficult as it may seem, if you don't want your life to get complicated or hounded by paparazzi, avoid hollywood/celebrity life. If you want to live the life you always dreamed of - that is celebrity status (fame, money and everything else) accept it consequences.

As for the illegal pics, I'm not complaining since if we don' have them we won't be having some pretty good threads here.

I think I'll have to disagree with a few points you made. First of all, I don't think one can say that celebrities only have the right to be angry at the paparazzi when "physically hurt". I'm writing a law essay on that specific matter and although you can't always blame them for doing their "job", it's exactly the same for celebrities. You can't blame them for leading the hollywood life and sometimes express contempt for these picture-chasers. It's also a job to be an actress or a singer, but unlike paparazzi they are unable to say "ok, it's 7 PM, I'm off the job". They have to deal with their celebrity 24/7 and they can't resign. Being famous hasn't always been about being chased (thanks to people's voyeurism…) and everyone should have the right to choose a career and not suffer from it. Moreover, I'm deeply shocked when I read that their lives "is somewhat owned by the public". Nobody owns anyone. Celebrities are still human beings and they have the right to privacy like everyone.

As for the illegal pics, I'm not complaining since if we don' have them we won't be having some pretty good threads here.
TRF doesn't feed on illegal pictures or speculations. If good threads for you have to be nourished by pictures taken against someone's will, then I do understand why paparazzi and tabloids earn so much.

I disagree too. Paparazzi have done some very terrible things, and celebrities deserve their right to privacy.

IMO we need international Paparazzi laws, as I feel they intrude on basic human rights more than they respect human rights. celebrity or not, what the pap does is downright disgraceful.
