Pink Sick of Paparazzi Stalking Baby
Pink recently had some strong words for the shutter bugs trying tirelessly to get a shot of her newborn baby girl Willow. In a note on her website pinkspage.com:
“Due to the unsettling, surprisingly aggressive and unsafe measures that the paparazzi seem to be willing to go to in order to secure that ‘first shot’ of our daughter – stalking us, chasing us in cars and sitting outside of our home all day and all night, [we] decided that we would release personal photos of our Willow, and donate all of the money to charity.”
The singer has a real problem with paparazzi endagering a child’s life: “It’s one thing to harass and stalk us, the adults, the celebrity that signed up for this life. But children should be protected and safe. There should be a clear distinction between us,” she continued.
She also questioned why U.S. remains the “only country that continues to financially incentivize intrusive paparazzi behavior to capitalize on photos of babies, infants and children.” Comparing her case to grown men taking snaps of non-celebrity children outside school, Pink wonders why paparazzi is even legal.
“In the face of camera lenses as long as my arm and flashbulbs as bright as the sun, Willow is powerless. All she has to protect her is us.”
