I love these two, and I love them as a couple. I hate that they would need to 'come out' as not wanting kids, but its great they don't feel pressured to.

I guess I think its kind of (sad? Annoying?) That people are expected to have kids if they're a couple.

    That's what I was wondering. I was having a hard time wording it for some reason.

    Why is anything to do with a famous person's personal life news?
    I suppose because people are nosey and since that person is famous they feel they have a right to know what goes on in their personal lives.

    Yeah, but there's a limit to our nosiness...I thought. Are they going to report on what Ellen eats for breakfast too?

    There *used* to be a limit to nosiness, but that is long gone. The moment photographers started jumping out of bushes to get pictures of celebrities children (making them fell scared and threatened) and standing around photographing someone as they died... It all went down hill from there.

    ETA: See Jodie Foster speech. This is the largest problem in the United States.

    the other day I was reading a celeb gossip thing, and there was a picture of a reality star (no* longer* on reality show) walking I guess to her car, and I thought, I would hate to have that life, just random people taking pictures of you...WALKING TO YOUR CAR....doing nothing. Where is the privacy? I'd never wanna be famous.

    ^ There has been more than one instance where the celeb's life has been put in danger, to feed the masses. Several tried to fight the practices of the photog's, but have had no luck. The public's need for more is unreal.

    I don't know about you, but I don't want anyone to die, or have their kids terrified, so I can watch them eat a chicken sammich or play in the park.

    It's not all that.

    I am so over hearing about the mundane lives of a public figure. If they break the law or do something egregious, that's different, but otherwise, I don't care. Why can't they scratch their butt or pick their nose in peace?

    Well, maybe now people will leave them alone and stop asking when they're going to have children. I'm all for people choosing to be child-free if that's their wish.
  • JosephineJosephine Posts: 14,175Registered Users
    What I really dont get is why do people get so excited about looking at strangers babies? Like it's such a big deal..i dont get it. And most newborns are weird looking and most of the babies ive happened to see at the store magazine arent even cute.
  • Fifi.GFifi.G Posts: 15,490Registered Users
    I can't say I go searching for that myself. If they choose to share a photo, so be it, but it became this lucrative market by way of stalking. Really, that's what it is. Down to 'what color panties you got on?' It's weird.

    Much of the (more minor) illegal stuff reported on now is caused by photographers as well. You have people following you around with intent to scare or anger you, so they can get a pic of it.

    No thank you. I would not want to be a celeb either.

    I like to look at babies. Especially new babies. I think it's a very human thing to want to see babies. Young parents used to be proud to show off their babies. Now there are a bunch of entitled asholes who work so hard to keep people from looking at their Precious-Little-Bundle that they'll put a blanket over the kid's face or seal them up in those infant carseat hoodie things.

    It makes me think: Screw you...who do you think you are, Michael Jackson?...I don't even want to look at your ugly baby anymore if you're going to be such a jerk about it.

    Serious question: Would you feel the same if you had 25 people with cameras, following you around, screaming things, and trying to get a picture of your baby?

    I have all kinds of problems with the methods.

    In some instances I think they have to expect some level of invasion of privacy. They are celebrities. Thats part of the job. Hence the term being in the public eye.

    And I think they do things that invites people into their private life even more and that creates a normalcy with invading their privacy.

    The dozen celebrities who have been on the cover of magazines baring their pregnant bodies think they're sending a message about beautiful pregnant bodies, but they're also sending a message about not respecting a persons private life. Reality shows are another thing that erases boundary lines.

    Gloria Steinem made a statement regarding the comments about Kim Kardashians pregnancy and weight gain. She went on about how nobody has the right to comment on a women's body during pregnancy, and her body is no ones business, and on. While I agree, I also think, this is a woman who became famous by her body being plastered all over magazines in various body revealing outfits. Has a sex tape. Has multiple reality shows. They film themselves taking pregnancy tests, getting medical procedures, going in the delivery room...How can this person suddenly demand privacy and actually expect people to respect that? I feel bad for the invasion of privacy for many people, but I think its becoming hard to draw the line on who and what its okay for. And this is what causes problems for those who actually want some privacy. Everyone deserves to have privacy, but when you open yourself up to so much public viewing, people aren't going to respect your privacy bc they arent used to giving it to you. Even if its not right, the public is going to feel entitled to your private life. And then it starts to extend to all celebrities.

    I think children should be off limits, no matter what.


    And end of rant.

    I am sure there are plenty who want to show off their babies, but when you have several people pushing, shoving, shouting, clicking away and generally scaring the crap out of the baby, then I can't say that I blame them for not wanting to feed the dragon.

    That's exactly it. Yes, they are in the public eye due to their jobs, but I also can not get what makes the public feel like they are entitled to photos that come from stalking, fear, and intimidation.

    That would have to scare the crap out of a parent, and the child.

    Most of those celebrities actually contact the papparazzi before they go out and tell them where they'll be. They WANT to be mobbed. How else would 25 paps know to show up at Starbucks when Brittney is buying a super-mocha-grande-chip-latte with her 2 little brats? There are ways to live a private life, and plenty of very high profile people manage to live private lives. They do it by not being publicity hounds and inviting that sort of nonsense. They do it by being polite and using common sense, not acting like entitled j*ckasses.

    I like looking at pics of celebrities (w/ or w/out their babies) if they have great fashion sense or great hair or for some other specific reason that interests me. But seldom do I give a crap enough to want to read about their family planning decisions.

    I was talking about regular people. WTF regular people feel the need to hermetically seal their Precious-Bundles away from the prying eyes of strangers, I'll never understand.

    These two crack me up...they haven't revealed their kids' names and keep them covered all the time. They are mid-level "stars", not huge. Um...no one cares that much about your kids. Get over yourself already.

    The ones who put themselves out there are fair game as far as I am concerned, the Kardashians and their ilk. There are those who go out to promote their movie or TV show, but otherwise want to be left alone. Why should they be put on display because of their chosen profession?

    ITA about the children. Leave them out of it.

    Some do, and some do not. Plenty have shared stories about their children being hounded and terrified. That crosses a line, imo. Also, celeb gossip sites have lines for tips on where celebrities are, and what they are doing, and also offer good money to anyone who can provide them with tips. That is also a common way that the find out.

    Regardless, there is sadly a market (demand) for useless crap like this.

    Iroc, I read your post and agree with reality tv, 100% It has created more of a trend to know what everyone is doing, at every moment.

    But I do recall seeing the birth of their babies on the news (yes, the news). They were born premature, and were in the hospital for months. Hope they are well, and moving on...
