No Wonder Why She’s Batshit Crazy Lately…

After seeing this picture, I think I’ve had some kind of epiphany. TMZ ran a photo yesterday of Britney being followed by NINE paparazzi vehicles. Including the dude who took the pic. DAYUM.

While driving her convertible in Malibu on Tuesday, Britney was followed by eight of her closest pap pals — nine if you include the one who actually took the pic. Just another day in Spearsville!

The snapping, flashing caravan shows just how intensely competitive getting a shot of the wigged wonder has become.

Ok, I give. If I’m adding to this, I’ll open a soup kitchen or teach kids to read or whatever. Nine cars following her as she goes on a taco run? I’d be tattooing my vulva lips and shaving my locks, too. Ok, I know my epiphany and spiritual awakening is only going to last as long as this post. But admittedly, I do feel sorta bad for the wackjob. I get the whole beat the car with the patio umbrella incident.

    They are truly stalkerazzi.

    Imagine what poor Princess Diana experienced.

    A friend of mine shot with the Paps in LA for a few days once, and said everyone was fueled on cigs, coffee, and electronica dance music. They communicate with walkie talkies, stalking for stars. It’s totally SICK.

    OMG. You are totally my hero J. Harvey. Tattoo my vulva lips? awesome possum.

    I agree that it is sick that 9 cars are following her, but if she moved her butt back to Hicksville USA for awhile, she could probably get the privacy she needs (but probably doesn’t necessarily want….you know she loves this).

    I have to wonder why it is that the Paps can post photos of people without a signed release. Legally when you photograph a person, and you plan to use that photo publicly, you must have the subject sign a modeling release. If there is 3 or more people in the shot then, legally, you are okay to use the photo without the modeling release. Maybe it is because they are public figures? I don’t know, just wondering…

    She’s a truly boring individual. All those photographers to take pictures of THAT thing? I’m going to need major depression meds to get through the fact that this society has just crumbled. Fallen flat on its face. We’re over and out, folks.

    Yeah, but, who wants to live in Hicksville? I hear the schools are barely adequite…

    That pap trail really puts things into perspective. I know that many celebs have a love/hate relationship with the press. They need the attention, but they want it on their terms. Wait… isn’t that called passive-aggressive?

    Uh, it’s adequate, BDay, and no, schools in the rural areas are not lacking. That’s a myth that people who live in sparsely populated areas are stupid. One probably started by people living in cramped cities. County people are not idiots and some of us actually choose to live in rural areas, over cities.

    If Brit went home to LA, she’d be a lot better off and could actually get her shit together, but like some other people on this site, I think she just wants attention. She never has her children with her anymore, and she is constantly staging these stupid little outings for publicity. I think she fried something in her head awhile back. That chick’s gone.

    I see your point but I still wonder…if I were so desperate for privacy would I choose to go on my mid-day taco run in a convertable? I dont know…I just feel that this is the career she’s in (the career she chooses to remain in), and this is a by-product of this chosen career. Either leave the celebrity life or accept it. Goodness knows she gets paid good money for this life. Which actually also begs the question…where’s her career the day the paps STOP following her…she can rest assurred that it will SOMEDAY happen.

    Whether you like BS or not, to have that many PAPS follow you around like that is RIDICULOUS & OUT OF CONTROL. So what if the girl wants a freekin’ taco. Why do we need 75 cameras documenting it?
