In case you have been living under a rock this past year you may have heard of the Cloud Hacking scandal. Since then Katy Perry has visited my Australian shores and was harassed by paparazzi to get nude photos of her while she was on the beach.
I never normally comment on these things, mainly because I just believe that stars are just as entitled to their privacy as much as you and I are. That’s it, no if’s or buts about it, they have a right to feel safe.
The reason for my random thought today though is the amount of people who say that these stars are doing it for the “publicity”. Stars who are NOT known for becoming famous through exposing themselves, who are known for their acting/singing etc. These are not human beings (because they are still a human being) who came into our lives through a “sex tape” or something similar.
They have worked hard, they have auditioned with thousands of others actors, they have established themselves through thousands hours of hard work, travelling the world and meeting with their public. They are world wide known, they are reported on daily, even without “hacking” scandals, and people still think that these hard working people are doing it for the “publicity”? Seriously?…Really? People still think that Jennifer Lawrence and Katy Perry already don’t have enough publicity as it is?…REALLY?
As was shown later (and I suspected) the one that Katy Perry was having a go at, was a paparazzi, who has already been arrested twice for stalking, harassing, being aggressive and bullying other celebrities.
