The Real Reason Why Perez Hilton’s Upskirt Shot Of Miley Cyrus Is Wrong

Every blog and media outlet in existence has weighed in on Perez Hilton‘s fixin’-for-a-jail-cell tweet that linked to an up-skirt photo of Miley Cyrus. Perez quickly deleted the tweet, so most of us have not actually seen it. But, apparently, Miley wasn’t wearing any underwear while she was exiting a car and … well, you know what happened next.

Miley Cyrus is only a few months shy of turning 18 years old, so everyone is wondering if Perez will be busted for “child porn.” Now, nothing really shocks me anymore, but as deep as my utter cynicism can be penetrated, I’m shocked that so many smart, compassionate people are missing the real story here:

It doesn’t matter if Miley Cyrus is a few months shy of 18 or she’s 100 years old. When a photographer distributed, and Perez then posted, a crotch shot, Miley was violated. Keep reading »

Quotable: Kristen Stewart Apologizes For Comparing Paparazzi Pics To Rape

“I really made an enormous mistake – clearly and obviously. And I’m really sorry about my choice of words. ‘Violated’ definitely would have been a better way of expressing the thought. People thinking that I’m insensitive about this subject rips my guts out. I made a big mistake.”

— Kristen Stewart pulls her foot out of her mouth after comparing paparazzi photos to rape in British Elle magazine. K-Stew played a rape victim in the 2004 film, “Speak,” based on a great young adult book by Laurie Halse Anderson about a teen girl who stops speaking after she is raped at a party. Stewart has also filmed public service announcements for sexual assault awareness groups the Rape And Incest National Network and for Security On Campus. Now, can we all please move on and be pissed off at actual rapists instead? [People] Keep reading »

Will A New Paparazzi Law Save The Governator From Photos Like These?

California’s Kindergarten Cop has pumped up a decade-old law for fining paparazzi who illegally take photos or recordings. Now, in addition to the photographer, celebrities will be allowed to sue the outlets who buy and use the offensively obtained material. That might not strike most of us as an extreme measure, but lawsuits are daunting. They’re already a major expense for media outlets whose bread and butter is broadcasting private moments celebrities try to indulge in.

New Clutch Helps Celebs Beat Paparazzi At Their Own Game

Most of us insignificant peons have no idea what it’s like to be hounded by the paps. And I on occasion have thought celebs should just suck it up because if no one cares about you, then your celebrity is over. But they can soon mount a counter defense against the paparazzi: Adam Harvey is the genius behind the Anti-Paparazzi Clutch that gives off a bright flash when it detects a flash from a camera. The result is an obscured photo, which for the paps means no check. The clutch will have a limited release in early Spring 2010. Until then, annoyed celebrities will continue to scowl and hide behind a hood or bodyguard. Or they could just render paparazzi photos useless by hiring a photog to follow them, and then give the photos to the tabloids. [Ed Note: SNAP.] Keep reading »

Clarkson Goes Commando

Kelly Clarkson explained to a reporter how a good luck charm, or lack thereof, helped her win American Idol. It wasn’t a rabbit’s foot or a four-leaf clover — her secret was safely between her legs. Kelly goes commando! She claims that since her panties have been gone, she’s been able to breathe and give her performances her all. But, Kelly worries she’ll be exposed as the next celebrity crotch shot victim and nobody wants a pap to smear them. Despite her fear of winding up like Britney Spears, she stands by her naked ambition, “Why’d anyone want a little thing up their butt when they can go free?” [ Star Pulse] Keep reading »
