It is strange and sometimes even ridiculous how some people like to follow the lives of the others. The greatest attention is paid to the life and love stories of the celebrities. Fans are desperate to see the photos of their idols without make-up, with some extra weight on their perfect bellies or with crying babies on their hands. May be the thought that these ideal creatures are not perfect after all calms us down as their defects resemble us ourselves.
In order to satisfy the need of candid photos and hot stories about the celebs here appeared a generation of special photographers and journalists – paparazzi. They work as independent contractors and make agreements with any mainstream media which can offer a higher price. Paparazzi use any means to get the news, so their reputation is quite notorious, especially in the world of celebrities. In some countries there are even laws passed against them. For example, in Norway, Germany and France photographers need permission of the people on their photos to release these photos.
