Pink took to her blog to release a statement regarding photos of her newborn daughter, Willow Sage. While the singer is psyched that the public is interested in her personal life, she was adament in her message that unauthorized photos of Willow floating around are not cool with her or husband Carey Hart.
“Why are celebrities/public figures having to seek restraining orders to keep strange grown men with still and video cameras from sitting perched outside of their children’s pre-schools and elementary schools, preying on little innocent kids? After all, if a stranger was sitting outside of a school taking photographs of random little girls and boys, wouldn’t he be arrested? Or, at least in Philadelphia, he would have to face a more primal sort of recourse. But because it’s the child of a celebrity, somehow it’s okay? I’m just not sure what is wrong with us as a society, that we do more than tolerate this, but our appetite for it seems insatiable. We buy these pictures. We buy these magazines that publish these paparazzi pictures. WHERE DOES IT STOP?”
Pink and Carey introduced Willow Sage in an interview with People Magazine so that they’d have a bit more control over who got the first images of their daughter. The new parents stopped by a local liquor store for a box of wine and a few snacks Wednesday before heading to Beverly Hills Medical Center Building in Los Angeles.
