Why do Celebrities Hate Paparazzi ? Ask 'Justin Bieber' who has had nasty Paparazzi run-ins , including a high-speed chase in July that ignited a prediction that the next time could end tragically. Which it did Tuesday, a photographer thought he spied Bieber sitting in his parked sports car was struck and killed by a a 69-year-old woman of a SUV, in oncoming traffic as he walked across a Los Angeles street to get back to his car after snapping
photos. All to rake in hard currency of the 18-year-old celebrity, but Bieber claims he was not in the car at the time of the New Year's Day incident. Which means there must be 2 look a like 5'7 blonde rooster haired geeks driving Biebers car. California Highway Patrol officers had pulled over Bieber's vehicle Tuesday evening near an off-ramp of Interstate 405, but I guess that cop bought the drivers story, after receiving that cash Xmas gift.

Celebs don't have privacy! And they are constantly bagged. Paparazzi go over the top. Paparazzi is the cause of Princess Diana's death. Paparazzi see celebs as people who don't really have feelings! As soon as someone becomes famous, paparazzi think immediately that it's ok to bag them and be in their buisiness. Which is so stupid and selfish, in August of 1997, Britain awoke to news that would change the countenance of the world:
Diana, Princess of Wales, was officially pronounced dead. Within minutes, the nation was grieving; within hours, the world was morning. Throughout the day, people around the globe stopped in motion,with wide, teary eyes and open jaws, as they passed by their television sets to listen to continuous news reports of this tragic event. Yes it happened, and the paparazzi were involved? Witnesses had already sentenced the paparazzi to death, and shortly, so did the world. It was evident they would take the rap for this one. The paparazzi were the first ones blammed for Diana's death. Immediately after the crash, or should I say within seconds, the paparazzi was physically and verbally attacked, not just for taking pictures of the bodies in the wreckage.
Celebs and Paparazzi, have to set limits on whats invasion of privacy and what they choose to be publicity for the stars careers, before the situation gets worse!
