Is it something on the inside of human beings that love to hear gossip and spread gossip about other people?
You often hear celebrities talk about the nuisance, known as the “paparazzi,” but in reality, are we as people any better than them?
“Paparazzi” is an Italian term that is used to describe photojournalists who specialize in candid photography of celebrities, politicians, and other prominent people.
Paparazzi tend to be independent contractors, meaning they are their own boss. They are typically unaffiliated with any mainstream media organization.
You always see the paparazzi everywhere prominent people are. They seek to get the compromising photo, juicy story or the breaking news. For the most part, they will say anything or do anything to accomplish their number one goal….being first.
Then there are the people that read the gossip magazines, blogs and internet postings. There are those that listen to the talk radio shows. There are those that thrive off of watching tabloid TV.
They hunger for it. They thirst for it. For many, it is a part of their mental and internal DNA. As I frequent the social media space, I tend to see it a lot.
I see people questioning the decisions that these prominent people make, as if they are really concerned with what they think or if these people even know them. Many people live vicariously through the lives of other people, especially celebrities.
Take the Whitney Houston case for example. People are talking about who should be at the funeral, who shouldn’t be at the funeral.
People are talking about who is using drugs and who isn’t using drugs.
People are talking about who should sell the memorial service video and who shouldn’t sell it.
People are talking about what Whitney Houston would want and what she wouldn’t want.
Oh my God……Is this not the same as the “paparazzi”? Get a life, for God’s sake.
Better yet, get you a camera already and start following your favorite prominent person around, because you are pretty much the same as them, minus the job description.
You are the “Paparazzi in Disguise.”
