I'm not trying to sound pretentious or "Hollywood" at all, but celebrities sightings don't really phase me. I just don't get starstruck. Maybe I'm immune because of all the "star-studded" events I've covered for work, but I just feel bad for celebrities when paparazzi are encroaching on their space.
We've heard this over and over again, but hey - celebrities are people, too.
But Friday evening, I crossed over to the dark side and became a "pap" myself. As Katy Perry put it in the chorus of her hit song, "I Kissed A Girl" and "I liked it." The location was Coachella's V.I.P. area, and the star was - wait for it - Katy Perry.
It was the first celebrity sighting of the day and in my attempt to get a picture out to my Twitter followers, I grabbed my co-worker's professional camera and started running towards her. I was actually chasing her and snapping away as her entourage gave me a nasty glare. It was only when they shielded Katy away from me and other photographers that I realized what I was doing... but I couldn't stop. It was a very surreal moment for me. I felt this rush through my body - a thrill. It was exhilarating.
I didn't get the million dollar shot, but I got a rear profile shot of her; detailing her black bondage mini dress, surrounded by her "angry people."
And yes, 20 seconds later, I was filled with guilt for stealing away Miss Katy Perry's personal space. But let me ask you - why would someone dress like they were ready for a photo shoot unless they were prepared to have their picture taken?
I would like to read a bit more soon. By the way, rather nice design that blog has, but what do you think about changing it from time to time?
I was actually really excited by the potential of meeting Danny DeVito, LOL! Never found him, I was really wanting to ask him about the secrets of Always Sunny In Philadelphia, among other things!
Awe struck over Kitty Purry? Hmm. Well i guess we all have our idols but i like mine to have more than to hits before i get all "GAGA" ;) Wink wink.
but what about the show? So many bands were vulcanically challenged and didn't make it!! At least you had the opportunity to see Echo and the Bunnymen – and really is there anyone else that would have been worth seeing??
Maybe she doesn't like fotos! Who knows?
Hey, as much as I agree with you on the celebs being stalked, targeted, and harassed, taking a picture back stage is harmless. As much as they are "people" they are people who have worked very hard to have their picture taken.
