Pink's Message to Paparazzi, Bloggers About Taking and Publishing Willow's PhotosWendyM
Pink has a thing or two to say to paparazzi and bloggers who either take her daughter Willow’s photo or publish pics of her baby. It’s not cool, plain and simple.
On her website, Pink wrote an open letter to paparazzi and bloggers, called “Important Note from Pink.”
First up, Pink explains why they had their first photo of Willow published in People magazine, explaining, “Due to the unsettling, surprisingly aggressive and unsafe measures” the paparazzi go to to get get that first baby photo, “as new parents Carey and I decided that we would release personal photos of our Willow, and donate all of the money to charity.”
Pink goes on to spell it all out, noting “we believe our little girl deserves the right to have privacy and be protected,” sadly the way of the media doesn’t allow that.
Pink adds that “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.”
Pink points out that children should be protected, but asks “because it’s the child of a celebrity, somehow it’s okay?”
The singer lays it all out by writing:
“Here’s the bottom line: we don’t want you to take our little girl’s picture. We don’t want you to one day follow our little girl home from school. We don’t want our little girl’s picture in a magazine or on a blog. If you take or publish her picture, it is against our wishes, and without our consent as parents, as people.”
While Pink doesn’t expect her letter to change anything, she’s asking for fans to “at least think for a second about what you may inadvertently be supporting.”
Do you think that paparazzi should hound celebrities to get photos of their kids?
