People put unobtainable beauty standards on themselves

2020.03.20 00:52 tonguebrush People put unobtainable beauty standards on themselves

There are very few men/women that require their partners to look like Kim Kardashian/Brad Pitt. YOU put those standards on yourself. And don’t say “the media” because people in the media have been beautiful for as long as the media has existed. If you feel you need to look like them, what you want isn’t love/acceptance, but you actually just want clout and you’re a narc.
And if that’s what you want just admit it. Don’t blame it on the opposite sex having too high standards.

2019.11.20 04:31 millymichelle Taylor Swift: Revenge, Reputation and the Lover ft the Capricorn/Cancer Axis

Uh oh. Looks like I'm knee-deep in a trend of astrological hot-takes for celebs. First Kanye (unprompted), thenKim Kardashian(requested) and now Taylor Swift (unprompted AND requested?).
2019 Swift is intriguing. And her bounce from the dark tones of Reputation to the light neon of Lover, her two latest albums, are astrologically synchronistic. The recent drama surrounding the ownership of her music, and her general unapologetic foray into women's rights and political discourse has been lovely to watch, as I've only really ever known her to be a sparkly pop princess with pretty dresses and a benign, saccharine disposition. My personal fascination with this transformation is my motivation to write this, plus the fact that she's one of the most visible public figures and offers a great chance at seeing how Astrology manifests. The Saturn Return looks GOOD on her.
DISCLAIMER--her birth time isn't graded well. In that event, let this interpretation instead be interpreted as a candidate for rectification versus a rock solid natal chart reading. The way her chart is set up with the current birth time makes an incredible amount of sense. Plus, the planet placements and aspects will remain correct, even though the house placements, to repeat myself, make hella sense.
I want to talk first about Taylor's unaspected Sun in Sag in the 12th. 12th house is where a lot of artists go to create in isolation and unearth the unconscious motivations of others that then manifest through art in a way that is touching and relatable. This Sag Sun is ruled by an exalted Jupiter in the 7th in Cancer, making the primary focus of her ego: relationships and relating. An unaspected Sun in the 12th can be where the ego goes to die--a person who has a very hard time incorporating who they are into what they do and want. But Swift has taken the confusion of this placement and used it to fuel her craft. Unwieldy Sun in Sag is a great placement for a visionary, nothing to tie down or modify the archer's pursuits.
But with her main luminary rather isolated, I opine that Swift then relies on the next best thing for forming identity: her dignified Moon in Cancer in the 7th house aka her other luminary. This is why, besides the Jupiter connection written about above, most of Swift's songs are about relationships. Also—with an unaspected Sun, a person may look to others as a way to form identity. Brad Pitt has a similar situation, and a meme went around about how he always subtly mimicked the appearance of his partners. But anyway…Back to Swift. Instead of relationship emphasis being looked at as some character flaw, it can instead be reinterpreted as the mission chosen to be undertaken in this lifetime, written in the stars. Chiron is also in her 7th, meaning that her greatest wounding comes from relationship. As an artist, it is fitting and kind of necessary that she heal these wounds with songwriting. It also makes sense that she had that Squad back in the day and has highly publicized friendships and gatherings (where she cooks--very Cancer). She needs and feeds off of relationships of all kinds, nurturing them--that is where she finds her identity, and that is where her emotions orient. And with Jupiter there, that is where she expands.
Swift is also known for being extremely generous and kind to her fans. This is the signature of an exalted Jupiter in the 7th.
Sun in the 12th of Sag then means her ASC is Capricorn. Physically, this makes sense. Capricorn and Saturn emphasize the bones, and Swift has a lanky, toned, and svelte figure similar to Ariana Grande or Zendaya (Aqua ASC). Capricorn ASC also makes her generally enterprising and hard working, which is apparent. Mercury conj the ASC gives a personality known for mercurial abilities, in this case, Swift's songwriting ----especially that she writes ALL her own songs. It is a major underpinning of her identity and her career. Mercury is also the court jester, the performer.
Swift's top hat and magician get up on one of her recent tours is a perfect manifestation of Mercury.
Uranus conj the ASC adds to the genius factor of her creations, and also a general independent streak or rebellious streak. Swift's isn't in your face, but subtle, like her tendency to like Tumblr posts that align with her views and feelings rather than expressing them explicitly. Her recent screenshots exposing the shady actions of those around her, and her way of covertly shading people she thinks have done her wrong, either in interviews or while accepting awards, also points towards this nature. And information disseminated through social media and the Internet in general is the domain of Uranus. There is a refined nature to Capricorn that won't play in the mud and get messy, but instead opts for a high-road. Uranus, though changeable, can represent a stubborn need to speak your mind (Speak Now, anyone?). Swift clearly does. Uranus cannot be suppressed. Also, the ricochet from the darkness of Reputation to the pastel creams of Lover, or starting out country and going into highly produced pop, is Uranian in and of itself. Just when you think you've got her pinned down...curve ball.
Neptune in the 1st gives Swift a dreamy like quality, and grounded in Capricorn, can give the girl next door appeal. Unsuspecting. Neptune is also a planet of glamour and fame, and to have it in the first makes ripe ground for a star, someone who people can project onto, and someone who ultimately projects through their art. Someone who people want to be, an aesthetic they aspire to. Neptune is conjunct Mercury, which supplies the endless wellsprings of songwriting inspiration, and also makes her words relatable to the masses. Neptune also deludes, hopes, and fantasizes. I think of one of Swift’s most famous lyrics Why can’t’ you see/You belong with me. No one can see through Neptunian fog. In fact, so much of her early music (I’m not an expert) projects this fairytale type of love life that she yearns for, gets, and then that ultimately falls apart. Sounds like the work of Neptune. Plus Neppy opposes within a reasonable degree, her Cancer Moon, Jupiter and Chiron, making these flights of fancy and inevitable disappointments play out both in her music and in her real life. An endless feedback loop of life imitating art, and vice versa.
Saturn is also in her 1st, and it notably rules her Aquarius Venus in the 2nd. Say what you will, but Swift capitalizes off her heartbreak. Placements in the 2nd house can show how we make money, and with Venus there, she clearly makes money from music, art, beauty and…her love life. (Let’s also remember that Aquarius Venus placements value friendship and connections with a broad swath of people. Yet another emphasis of relationship in her life, and in multitude) Saturn ruling over that placement plus everything in her 1st house (her final dispositor) basically says: in the end, this will all play out for your benefit. Fruits of her emotional labor. Saturn in the 1st also deepens the expression and seriousness of a person. Though her Jupiterian goodwill may shine forth more prominently, her serious and calculating side exists. Think about how she capitalized off of the Kim/Kanye/snake drama. That’s strategic, long-term Saturnian planning and reserve.
Oh, and about that drama. Swift’s out of sect malefic is Mars. That means Mars causes the most issues for her. Swift’s Mars is in Scorpio in the 11th. This is the type of placement that confirms, for me, that her birth time or whereabouts is accurate. Trouble with communities, networks and friends, and in Scorpio, inundated in the dramas of revenge, sex, and secrets. How many beefs has Swift now publicly had? Mars is dignified in Scorpio, meaning that for better or worse, Swift’s talent for comeuppance is pronounced. Whether it is an ex who jilter her, a peer who stole her dancers, or her naked body being used in a video without her permission (which omg so Scorpio). Not only can Mars in Scorpio tolerate such trespasses, it regenerates through them. Mars sextiles her Venus. Sextiles mean opportunity—striking while the iron is hot. Swift has been demonstrative in being able to turn her worst public foibles (Mars) into art (Venus). With a Scorpio MC in the 11th—controversy and public spats may always follow her. When Kanye West interrupted her VMA speech on September 13th, 2009 (11th house rules awards)—Mars was in Cancer, Swift’s 7th house, conjunct her natal Chiron, suggesting adversarial energies with others that exacerbate a deep wound. At the same time, Pluto was newly ingressed into Capricorn, her first house. The energies and events around this Pluto ingress set the stage for the savage Swift that was to come. Years later, she pronounced the old Swift was dead.
Swift released Look What You Made Me Do in the lead up to her Saturn Return and her Saturn Return album, Reputation. Swift wrote this song (and conceivably put together the album), while Pluto was conjunct her natal Mercury. The tone of her songwriting took a distinctly dark and vengeful tone. Pluto had been in her house of identity for several years by then, slowly overhauling her image to the world, and effectively killing the old Taylor, as she said, by confronting her with devastating power plays. Saturn was conjunct her natal Sun around this time, and then entered Capricorn, officially starting her Saturn Return. The name Reputation is an apropos Saturn/Capricorn and Saturn in Capricorn theme. As said before, Capricorn cares a great deal about how they are perceived and wish to be taken seriously, seen as authority. This album was Swift’s demand to be taken seriously. She was taking back her narrative. She reappropriated the snake imagery that was once used to deride her and instead used it as a PR gimmick. This is textbook Plutonian regeneration, by the way, and conjunct Mercury, makes perfect conditions for a marketing ploy. Also, Jupiter was in Scorpio during her Reputation era, awakening the natal promise of her scathing Mars, and expanding upon and deepening the drama found there. The imagery of this album cover was also markedly different from her others. There was no color, the font was reminiscent of hip hop/gang aesthetic, and Swift looked like she had had e-fucking-nough. Hello darkness, my old friend. This is the Saturn Return.
The south node also entered Capricorn around this era, suggesting a draining in 1st house matters. Swift admittedly receded from the public eye in the lead up to Reputation and in the fall out of her Kim/Kanye scandal.
When Swift released the first single of her Lover album, Jupiter was in Sagittarius conjunct her Sun. The mood difference between Saturn on her Sun and Jupiter on her Sun is so fitting, and why Astrology is legitimate (heh!). The first single was called ME!, the perfect encapsulation of Jupiter expanding and warming the ego of the Sun. Her second single was You Need To Calm Down (a banger), which to my Astrologer eye, is the wise surrender to the existence of social media bullying and call out culture. By this time, her exact Saturn Return was effectively over, and Saturn was retrograde, offering a chance to internalize the lessons and sigh a breath of relief. And in her case, this catharsis took the form of an optimistic, bubbly, and compassionate read on an issue that will likely follow her the rest of her life. The North Node was also transiting Cancer, reinforcing gains and karmic resolution in in her 7th house. That she proudly declared herself a lover after the devastation preceding Reputation was like a return to self. With Jupiter on her Sun, and dynamic energy on her natal Jupiter in Cancer, Swift was decidedly warmer this time around, and back in her comfort zone.
During this time, Mars was once again conjunct her Chiron in Cancer, and also conjunct the transit North Node (where you make gains). Though Mars cycles are two years in duration, and Swift probably made incremental progress in the interim, this speaks to the overall resonance of planetary cycles. Back when Kanye interrupted her at the VMAs, Mars was there. And now 10 years later, Swift has grown into her own maturity and is handling similar adversaries with the grace and wisdom of a woman ushered into Astrological adulthood, and past the stressors of Pluto and Saturn. Saturn also rules her 2nd, so it makes sense that a final theme of her Return is struggle over what belongs her. She was blindsided when her songs were bought out from under her feet, and are now being held hostage by a former and currently problematic business partner. Only, unlike the last time something was stolen from her, she’s not a little girl anymore.
(Swift is currently finishing a 6th house profection year. A signification of this house is law, which could be why she finds herself embroiled with her lawyers in a bitter pursuit to gain the rights to her music. Mercury rules her 6th house, which is why her songwriting is of particular import.)
Who next?

Questions Answers
I heard that Daniel Radcliffe basically made all paparazzo photos of him worthless because he wore the same clothes everyday - making it look like all photos taken of him were done the same day. Basically Radcliffe got it right. This though, is pretty difficult with women who no matter what will try to look great in their outfits (I guess not all women, ehem.. Kristen Stewart). Leo Di Caprio is also good at making his pictures worthless (and worth a lot at the same time), but he takes it a step further. I heard that even when he goes out to restaurants he asks for the table that faces a wall, doesn't look up to the waiter and never takes off his hat or sunglasses.
What other clever ways have celebrities burned the paparazzi? And what suggestions do you have to celebrities that want to make their photos, "worthless?" Are you a celebrity? Cuz there's even more things that you could do to make your picture worthless (or for the paparazzi to be worthless). Good luck to you!
What was the most disruptive or invasive thing that you ever did to get that money shot? The worst one that haunted me for days... was Marcia Cross' twin daughters birthday with her husband that had cancer.
It was super creepy, worked with a partner, never left the car where I was hidden and took pictures of them enjoying a day in the park. When they went for coffee later, they saw us and they were super chill and nice people. Seriously, I couldn't believe they were so nice. They knew we were always there in the car taking pictures and thank us for giving them their space. Still super creepy. I hated that job.
I'm sure I did more similar things... you know.. being a creep is part of the job. But that's the one I just remembered right now.
Never really did anything "invasive" out of the ordinary that I can think off. Bruce Willis did call the cops on me once because he said I was trying to get into his property. This was not true, I simply was peeing in a bush in Mulholland ave...
If you suddenly became super famous, would you complain about not having privacy, being followed etc. or would you suck it up and say it's part of your life now? Would you smile and talk to paps or openly hate them? Of course I thought of this before. I believe that privacy is a lost issue now a days with the internet and the NSA. I am not embarrassed of who I am and I believe I would smile and talk to them openly.
I would hate it if I was in my honeymoon or something of that sort and some asshole was shooting me with a 500+ lens. But there's an easy way to avoid this from happening and many celebrities have figured it out (just take pics yourself and throw them online for free, kills the money shot)
I would follow the example of people that admired and were great with the paps. They are just people working for some shitty media that wants some shitty news.
The Cult of Personality. How demeaning was it to take pictures of celebrities? Here in NYC, we ignore them and they can live a fairly normal life and actually walk around (except John Lennon). NYC has a lot of paps and they don't ignore them. LA works pretty much the same. A lot of people ignore them, but a lot of people go to the city just to see a celebrity so of course they go wild when they see one.
It was pretty demeaning, especially being an artist myself. But I did get to see awesome people and even shook hands with Paul McCartney.
What's the worst or meanest celebrity you met? I had a chance of meeting a lot of celebrities too, and I have to say that Eddie Murphy is a major douche. Sean Penn punched a friend of mine in like the second week of the job.
Javier Bardem spat in my eye (and I was so nice to him).
There's a lot out there that are douches, but for the most part, they were nice. They are just like people, some assholes, some regular folks and then the extremely super nice.
I never saw Eddie Murphy, but what you say makes sense. In comparison, Samuel L. Jackson is fucking awesome and nice, and you would think he would be the mean one.
Damn. i thought javier bardem was cool. He can still be cool. I saw him a couple more times and he was dickish, but no spitting on my face.
Maybe he was having a bad day, maybe he is just a general asshole or has no idea what to be a pap is like, but the dude is a pretty good actor though I hated him on Love in the Time of Cholera. I have a few friends that are a fan of his and got sad with my experience with him. But fuck it, just hope the guy thinks about the shit that he did. I mean, that's like one of the worst thing you can ever do (to spit on someone's face). I think I rather be punched.
There's a lot out there that are douches. I did not provoke him or did not hound him. I was super nice to him and gave him space. I thought he was going to shake my hand like many before him have, that's why I turned around.
I work in Hollywood and I would have kicked him in his fucking knee and buckled him. Well... then I would have gotten arrested and worse. The paps never have anything going for them.
Did you ever see/meet anyone from the Chili Peppers? Yes. I have "famous" pictures of Anthony Kiedis and his son Everly Bear (I think that's his name). I'll link you or post them soon.
Anthony was really really chill and a really nice person.
Also saw Flea and Chad. Both great guys, but virtually worthless in pictures in the paparazzi realm.
Edit: Here's Anthony with his kid.
Cool pic. No sign of John Frusciante? =P. Had to google John Frusciante, I believe I saw him, but never tried to sell his picture. Searched my hard drive as well... nothing.
So do you just hang around the gates all day and see who turns up, or do you have vague ideas of who to expect? More than vague ideas. A detailed list of what flight they were on and constant calls from several sources even giving me more information.
What odd similarities do you find between celebrities and people? Odd? There's no odd similarities. Celebrities are people. They have two ears, two eyes, a mouth and a nose, two arms (etc. etc.)
Ohh ohh.
I see your redditor name now.
Does the industry establish any limits or unwritten rules when it comes to your profession? Is there a line that most are unwilling to cross when it comes to getting a shot? There are. But now there's too many idiot paps breaking the unwritten laws. So the limits have been disappearing and people will do whatever to take a picture. TMZ has pretty basic rules for their videographers about respect and not shoot if they the talent doesn't want to be shot. If you see a video of asshole paps filming and just provoking celebs, they weren't TMZ (or they were and got fired).
If you are still answering questions, what was the nicest thing a bodyguard said to you or the strangest thing a body guard did? Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's bodyguard was super chill. He always told me how things were going to go down, didn't block my picture, just did his job.
Fergie's bodyguard is like her best friend. He was also always awesome.
Jessica Simpson's bodyguard told me about all the people he had worked with before. He was also a former cop and marine. I asked him what would he do if I was an actual threat. In less than a second my arms were locked painfully behind my back and couldn't move. Super badass.
Holy shit. I wanna meet that last bodyguard. Sounds like that was a lot of fun. Also did you meet anyone that you still keep in contact with? Uhh.. there's a lot of people I still keep in contact from LA, but not an actual celebrity that I met.
I'm not going to name drop, but a friend of mine is a comedy stand up has been in a few shows and might be getting a movie deal soon.
I slept with a girl who is now in movies, youtube shows, commercials and shows. I keep contact with her, mostly because I want it to happen again. I don't think it will happen again.
Mary Kate and Ashley's (former) bodyguard! I know him, he's my friend! Yay! :) Bald guy that always wear pink shirts?
They switched bodyguards quite a few times. If that was him, he is a cool dude. Thank him for being a cool bodyguard for me.
Based on the years you spent as a paparazzo, I assume you had some experience with Britney Spears? As that was around the time of her 'breakdown' which brought on a major media frenzy. Tell me everything about her! Oh god...
Yep. She was indeed crazy. I tried hitting on her with the fantasy that I would be in someday and I was just 21...
What can I say that hasn't been said before? The camera I used when I switched agencies was the very same one that took the picture of her shaving her head and her vagina. My boss was like "this camera and I have been through a lot, break it and you are fired." (He was half kidding and I loved that D3)
My first jobs as a pap was Britney. She did randomly talk in British accents and was widely unpredictable. It was always a mess with shit tons of people trying to get pictures. One time she drove around in circles in a parking lot as 20 pap cars followed her. She would park, pretend to get out of the car, all the paps would jump out, but then she would just get in again and drive around the parking lot.
This pap told me a story that one day they were outside her house waiting for her. When she decided to come out and invite all the paps inside for a BBQ and a party but with no cameras. They obliged and went inside her house where she went to a different room. He said she then went to a different room and when she came back asked wtf they were doing there and called security to kick them out. He also said that he went inside a room that had random sex toys and shit smeared on the walls. THIS IS NOT MY STORY. Just a story I heard when house sitting some place else.
After her breakdown I saw her at LAX a couple of times. She always seem faded, almost robotic as her handlers took her through security and put her on her plane.
Edit: I actually already wrote about Britney on my blog and tell the stories there of when I saw her.
Have you ever been attacked by someone who didn't appreciate being photographed? Javier Bardem spat in my eye and that was about it.
Other people hide or run away, but none really attacked. Justin Bieber and I played a little game of see who can run faster. I won.
Oh yeah, and Beyonce's bodyguards. They push you and attack you, no fucks are given.
"I need you step out of the car, sir" This was at LAX. He was walking with Penelope and I was giving them distance while saying really nice things in Spanish (welcome to LA, I'm a huge fan, I love your work). He was about to get in his car when he turned around and I thought he was going to extend his hand to shake and say thank you (like many other celebs have). Instead he said "Eres basura" and spat in my eye. I saw Penelope freaking out, I saw his helper freaking out... I freaked out. I yelled back that I was just a guy trying to pay his fucking college debt working a shitty job, but no fucks were given. He got inside the car and left. I called my boss, he told me I had a lawsuit in my hands, specially because there was witnesses. I thought about it and talked to the police. They told me I could press charges under attack with a biological weapon (yep..) and it was going to be a whole fucking mess. I decided to drop it and leave it to karma.
"Would you hold still please"
spits in your face
To be fair paps are trash and only help feed America's unhealthy obsession with garbage that doesn't matter while helping them ignore the stuff that does. Lots of other ways to make money. I'm glad he spat in your face, he was right. Spitting in someone's face isn't the worst thing ou can do, spying on someone who is terminally ill and spending time with their family is worse. Do you actually have respect for yourself after doing that job? You should read the whole AMA and not only the asshole part. I answered your question before.
Totally agree that paps help feed the trash. Let us not forget is not only America that is obsessed with celebrities, my pictures sold worldwide (and Australia can be worse).
If you spat on someone's face... congratulations. You are an asshole... sir Asshole_Mountain.
Also if you were a tourist in LA where is the one spot you would go to see celebrities easily? Uhh... try the usual hang out places? Robertson? Beso restaurant? The thing is.. there's so many celebrities that a lot of people see them and not even realize it.
Have you known anyone before they became famous - or on the way up? If so, has that been beneficial later on? Yes. Tons of people. When I started, Twilight was nothing. My neighbor was Nikki Reed and she was awesome. We figured our birthdays were one day apart and we had a lot of similar interests (she going to college for art history which I also partake).
Also, Selena Gomez was just the little girl from Wizards of Waverly place. Miley Cyrus was just Miley. I saw both of them become massive which was super weird. They were both super nice when barely famous, but it changed fast.
There's more like that...
It was beneficial in the way that if they remember who I was, they were super nice to me. Like Vanessa Hudgens. She always smiled at my camera and other paps were always like WTF?! how do you do that?! It sounds super dumb, but I miss her sometimes...
If you look at my comments section, I've never said a bad word about Vanessa. She's such a sweet and down to earth person. She eats with the crew and is always happy and smiling. She's got a very magnetic personality. I miss her. She was one of my favorites. I would always make her smile and blush.
Which celebrities are the most 'in demand'? Do you think any celebrities genuinely get unfairly harassed or are excessively pursued by the paparazzi? Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt and Jolie are the top 3 demands and will always be a good sell.
Uhh... its not the paparazzi that chooses who to pursue, is the obsessed audience that wants to know more about a certain person. Some get unfairly harassed when the media only cares about them. I remember Rihanna after the Chris Brown days, everyone was in that case (I shied away from on demand stories). She definitely was pursued like crazy for a while.
I understand what you mean - that was poorly phrased! My apologies. I guess I wondered if you felt there are celebrities who can legitimately complain about the involvement of the press in their lives. I particularly wondered in light of what you said about celebrities who used to be child stars hating it; I've seen the clips of Suri Cruise telling paps to photograph her doll instead of her, and I wonder how this will impact her later. Do you think there's an increase in how involved audiences want to be with the children of celebrities? I believe that America and every country should adapt the no baby pictures like in Europe, where they blur the pictures of anyone under a certain age.
It truly is fucked up that Suri Cruise is as famous as she is. BABIES BABIES BABIES. The magazines and my bosses would yell at me for that. I don't understand celebrity obsession, much less celebrity baby obsession.
I think that's the part of things I've found hardest to comprehend. While I find the interest in celebrity coming-and-goings to be a little off, I can understand it as being a sort of aspirational thing. When it comes to the current trend of knowing what is going on with celebrity babies, and the trend of (some) celebrities creating web presences for their babies via instagram and twitter, I find it really strange. When I think how many sad stories there are about child celebrities not coping with the work or the fame for something they've done, I compare it to a generation of celebrity children, in particular Suri Cruise, who are famous and magazine-fodder for doing nothing except carrying some genetics. I don't see this going anywhere good. And, like you, I don't understand the celebrity baby obsession. I have one more question if you have time! Do you think the presence of social media (while obviously making it easier for selfies etc and undermining your job) has made celebrities in general more open and accepting of public scrutiny? Celebrities that have a social media presence are for the most part better off. But have to be always careful about what they post online, anything can be taken out of context. For myself, I know there's people that are going to upvote me and people that are going to downvote me. I'm happy for those who appreciate me and don't care about the haters that just hate (unless they have something constructive to say). I think many celebs are grasping this notion. There's probably as many Justin Bieber fans as Bieber haters and he should understand that not everyone is going to like him. This is what everyone should acknowledge and everyone would be fine (or that is my view).
I'm not trying to give you a hard time, cos I appreciate you're answering the questions, even the 'hard' ones, which is more than many AMAs, but... Hahaha.
I believe that America and every country should adapt the no baby pictures like in Europe, where they blur the pictures of anyone under a certain age. My agency sold those pictures before. The harm was already done, did not think much of it. Also, the only pics I have of Kiedis are with his kid. I wasn't going to get out of my way to blur that out.
You just posted an un-blurred pic of Kiedis' toddler. What gives? But you are right that I would prefer to have that picture blurred out (also, I should be watermarking my pictures, but laziness!)
Generally, how do you find out when "celebrities" will be at a location? Is it random chance? Or do their publicists tip you off and they just act surprised? Already answered this in some ways.
Random chance happened a lot (I mean, Aleksander Skarsgard and Bai Ling lived in my same apartment complex)
Anyone and everyone will tip you off. Publicists sometimes give information without the knowledge of the celebrity, so they are genuinely surprised.
Do you have any picture of bai ling where she's not trying to nip slip? Looked through my hard drive. Apparently Yes.
There's a set of her eating at Fish Market in Venice, boring pictures of her just applying make up.
There's another set of her arriving to LAX with a red shirt on. Boring pictures of her again.
I guess the only ones that make the light of day are those that show her pencil eraser nipple.
Did you make friends with any of them? If I were a celebrity I'd try to have one paparazzi friend... one. I would like to say yes... but friendship is a two way street, so I know it's silly to think they were my friends.
I chatted up with many and even hung out, gave them my business cards and what not. But no one ever called me :(
I've heard that celebs will call pap to tip them off, is this a common occurrence? Yes, depends on the situation. Some need the media attention at just the right moment.
Hello. Did you talk with Diego Luna and Gael Garcia?? As a mexican I'm really proud they are doing so well in the international film business. YES! As a Mexican and a huge fan of all their work I had to talked to them. I approached them to get that picture of me with them at LAX.
Gael was a bit of a dick and Diego was the nicest fucking guy ever. Gael was confronting me because I took more than one picture, he told me that one was enough. I told him that in the business I keep shooting until I get the right frame. Diego calmed Gael and asked me to direct them to the taxis. I helped them navigate LAX while taking pictures and Gael was still being dickish (while Diego super chill)
Iñarritu was there with them as well, but I didn't bug him because he was with his family.
Also saw Diego once in a bathroom in a bar in LA. I was already drunk and walking out when he was walking in. I randomly yelled "DIEGO!" and he looked at me with a "do I know you" type face. I just told him I was a fan, shook his hand and left the awkward situation.
That's really cool, I just saw you got Tijuana at your twitter, I'm from Monterrey. Viva Mexico!!! maybe you could make another AMA at /mexico. Soy Queretano and active member of /mexico ;)
They love to downvote in that subreddit... I might give it a try. I'm also going around TJ giving talks of what it was like to be a paparazzi.
Did you work as paparazzi at Tijuana when the artists went to vacations? No artist comes to Tijuana for vacation. I worked mostly in Los Angeles though I went to several other places.
I don't pap anymore, but if I spot one in TJ, I know I'll have to take their picture. Macaulay Culkin was here not that long ago and I missed him and I'm glad I didn't see him.
Va para el cerrito? Si hay cafe de olla y un quesito fresco, con mucho gusto.
Yucateco acá... Solo... hola. Mare! bombaaa!
Out of 10 A-list celebrities how many are in the closet? 3 out of 10? 5 out of 10?'s a cliche question I know but i still need to know. Hahaha.
I think I have a decent enough gaydar and I would say that is more than you imagine. Tons of Hollywood waiters (wanna be models/actors) like to claim that they have slept with celebrities so I have heard that a lot are.
Any Alec Baldwin encounters? Hahaha... oh yes. The man flies from LAX to JFK a lot. I saw him a bunch. He was never nice but also never a dick.
Never anything bad but I do suspect he has no teeth. He was also embarrassed whenever his daughter picked him up for some reason.
No teeth? Yes, like he has prosthetic teeth and takes them out at will (like Grandpa!)
I believe the word you are looking for is "dentures". AHH yes. I couldn't think of that!
Do you have a most prized photo of a celeb? (more so personally to you, not what everyone else wanted) One of my favorites was Lindsay Lohan in Hawaii. It was like my first travel job and major sale and the first time using a 500mm lens. But there's a lot of other pictures I treasure (like the aforementioned Paul McCartney).
Do you have any pictures of Tom Hiddleston? I'm such a giddy fangirl Never saw Hiddleston, he was not famous when I was around, sorry :(
What is the need for all this following around? How's the attitude and how are the people who you work with? There seems to be no care about giving people their space, and their private time is it, and sounds like this is an industry for just people who don't care about others? There are a lot who are not American (probably do not have the papers to work there) and give no fucks about anything.
It is a dirty industry where people trample over each other to make money.
My last year working was for an agency where everyone was fair and smart, so that was way better.
What was the pay like? For example, did you get good money if you were the lone photographer (because I can't spell Papa whatever)? The pay always depended. I know now a days is way worse and paps fight more for lame pictures.
It could be anywhere between 5 cents and $5,000 or even more.
I averaged around 5k a month. I had horrible months where I made less than 1k. My best month was 12k.
Pay was tricky. The picture gets sold, the magazines don't pay you until months later. Blogs pay a misery. The agency you sold the pictures fuck with the numbers and pay you less. So the numbers were always all over the place. Sales reports included title of picture sold, what it sold for and my commission. Sometimes the report was 5 pages long of tiny tiny amounts that added up to 2,000.
So... it always depends. There is money in the job, its just not easy money (and I hear that now a days is way worse).
(and I hear that now a days is way worse). More paps, less privacy.
Any idea why? What changed? Technology changed the game. Now a celebrity can be somewhere and an idiot with an iPhone will take their picture an upload it to Twitter. That's a free picture for magazines to grab while that paps are trying their hardest to get a good picture.
What's Audrina like? I'd like to hear what you have to say about her. She's always been my celeb cursh. Well.. this is going to be a very bias answer since she is also my celebrity crush.
Yes, I have folders and folders with tons of pictures of Audrina. I used to hang out by her house and follow her all the time... She was always super nice, her sister and brother were chill too. Her dad tried to sell me their monster truck (as if I made that much money as a pap). Basically, picture that high school crush that you had nothing in common with but still believe you were going to marry her (or at least that's how it was for me).
What are some of the crazy things that happens to a paparazzo? Anyone do something that caught you completely off guard? Uhh.. Javier Bardem spat in my eye.
A lot of crazy things happened almost daily...
Which celebrities smoke cigarettes? Any idea of a percentage? Also any celebrities that seem tame but actually party hard? I caught a few smoking and some asked me to delete the frames because they don't want that image.
It wasn't that often. Complete guess of a percentage, 30%. And from that 30% only 5% are closeted smokers.
Uhh.. The Jonas Brothers? probably not the answer you were looking for.
I'd be interested to hear more about the jonas brothers? is it just joe jonas that parties hard? or the other ones too (no one remembers their names...)? Uhh Nick and... uhh ... uhhh...
I'm not sure. I know Ashley Greene is awesome and loves to party. Joe dated her and other girls that would love to party. Last time I was in Hollywood I bumped into Joe. I'm sure he parties. Not much to say about them, they were nice kids.
Obviously some celebrities act like they hate the paps, but have there been any in your experience that stood out as exceptionally nice and kind to the people that take pictures? Besides all the celebrity whores (Kardashians, the Hills, Jersey Shore, Kate and Jon Gosling, etc.) yes.
Al Pacino has to be one of the nicest ones that you would never expect. Hugh Jackman is super nice that every time I saw him I just wanted to brohug the dude. Like I said before, those who you expect them to be super mean turn out to be nice. Some that you expect to be super chill are complete dicks.
Tl;dr Al Pacino and Hugh Jackman.
I wish people would stop taking pictures and celebritizing the kardashians. They are seriously the least interesting people ever. They are famous for no reason. I don't even think they're attractive. Kim is oddly hot.
Seriously, in person she doesn't seem interesting or hot. I would take pictures of her and be like "bleh," then look at my camera and she would look perfect. Oddly photogenic in like the worst lightning and worst moments.
But yeah. I have no idea why they are famous besides Kim having an ass that I could sleep on as if it was a waterbed (and yes, it is that huge in person).
Did any celebrities call you to take their picture? I heard Hilary Duff does this. Not me personally. A lot of them do call other paps.
Can you say who was calling paps? Many have at some point in their career...
All the Twilighters. The Kardashians. Lindsay Lohan. Almost everyone from The Hills.
If its not them directly is via a publicist.
Celebrities need paps as much as paps need celebrities (or even more... )
Do you consider paparazzi work "photography"? Why or why not? I consider it one of the toughest photographies next to National Geographic stuff. Animals are tough creatures to get perfect pictures of, so are celebrities. Think about it, we get pictures of people that don't want their picture taken, similar to polar bears that are looking for a meal and much rather eat the photographer.
Sport photography is an a controlled ambient. You know the light, you know the sport, you know what is going to happen, you just better be a good shooter. Model photography is very controlled. Pretty much every ambient is nice and controlled except photojournalism (or paparazzi, which is its lowest form) and nature type awesomeness (which someday I hope to do).
How do you know where people are going to be? Is it mostly PR tip offs and obvious things, like being at the airport, or is there more to it? Its that obvious. When you are in LA and the business, you can't escape it. I would see celebrities when I DIDNT WANT TOO.
Being at LAX to just be at LAX can get you some luck, but its dumb and pointless. Limo drivers and their agencies are more than willing to sell some information. Same with airline people.
Many paps have the city "wired". Valet parking people, managers of restaurants, or virtually any one that wants to make a quick buck can make a call and sell out a celebrity for $50 or so. I had tons of people that also called me for free.
When the twilight craze was going full speed I befriended some Twilight crazy fans that send me information constantly. These girls knew everything and messaged me for free the information.
So I always wondered how exactly do you know which flight someone is on does Delta call you and say hey Kanye's on our flight or what? Basically...
Either someone that works for Delta. The driver who is supposed to pick up Kanye or Kanye's PR gives you the flight #. Sometimes is the obvious celebrity gets on a flight from LHR and people get pictures. There's only a few flights from LHR to LAX, you figured out which one they are on.
One time I saw Ann Coulter randomly and took her picture. She asked me how I knew and guessed "someone in JFK told you!" I was like... "sure Ann, because you are that important"
Taking pictures of Ann Coulter is a waste of ink and paper. Should have beat her with the camera instead. I snapped four (digital camera) The flash didn't go on for 2 of them. Sent the one semi decent pic to my agency just in case.
Here's that she-devil
Have you ever played the game pokemon snap? YES! and it is my main inspiration.
Which celebrities had the best or worst temper when they got their photos taken? None and all at the same time.
Whoever you think will be mean, is actually super nice. Whoever you think will be super nice is the opposite.
When a celebrity has a movie coming out, they are super nice. When they have negative press they become assholes.
