[Letter]

2020.10.12 21:10 Square-Increase-7673 [Letter]

Hello Dr. Peterson,
You have advocated that men need to get married, have children and start a family. I'm 34. Few years back I got divorced, no kids, later I learnt the ex wife was scheming and got married to a mutual friend post 2 months from the divorce. 4 years later I let another woman into my life, she turned out to be a cheater with a promiscuous past.
I was raised with traditonal values and morals. All my life many women have approached me either for sex or relationships. However, due to my upbringing and the extreme toxic feminism that was shoved down my throat from a tender age that led me to believe that since I am a man, I am bad, and also other Freudian factors. I was raised by a single mother and many female teachers in school/boarding school, go figure.
Due to which I rejected the advances of these girls/women cause I was saving myself for the right person I would spend my life with. And all around me just like the movies, people were partaking in promiscuity or sex with multiple partners and building up their body count.
After my divorce and the last ex gf, I lost faith and respect for women. I am disgusted. The modern woman lies, cheats, is promiscuous, has a high body count, wastes away her prime and youth chasing the bad boys and on the cock carousel. And when they reach 30, they try to trap a decent man and keep him in the dark.
Let's not even get started on the 3rd wave feminism and the gynocentric society that is extremely against men. Men can be put into prison, lose everything just like that. However, women are immune to all that due to the double standard. They want equality but no equality when it comes to similar harsh treatment, consequences and responsibilities. They immediately and momentarily become traditonal women when things are hard and a man needs to be thrown under the bus or sacrificed.
Women manipulate men on so many levels. I know a few men who are equally bad and part of this decay of society and the moral fabric of our world.
Few years back I discovered MGTOW and Red/Black Pill.
I have lost everything. My house, money, high income job, vehicle, possessions, everything. Have been living with severe depression since I was 13 years old and have attempted suicide 3-4 times now. I am starting from scratch and am 34 without my abode or any family.
I am still in good shape and decent looking. Some women still give me the looks or indicators that they are interested. However, I am just digusted and I know nothing good will come from them. And they will lie about their past, and will only manipulate me cause these women don't want to grow old alone. They want to trap a man they can ruin. And there are many other men, simps, orbiters on her smartphone. So the hypergamy, monkey branching and lining up the next guy or cheating is prevalent with the modern day women.
No force in this or the multverse can satiate the greed, hypocrisy and vile nature which is know as the female nature. No wonder the world is crumbling in so many countries and in so many levels. When girls look up to Cardi B, Miley Cyrus, Kim K, Amber Rose, Niki Minaj and men look up to hip hop gangstas that rap about anal sex,.drugs, guns, and being thugs and the pursuit of money, what do you expect. And the liberal left and their talk shows pushing their posion, Fox News pushing theirs, Hollywood and Corporates, perfect receipe for why we are where we are.
Hence, I have decided I will go the MGTOW way, and go monk. Whatever time I have left on this planet, I will use that to travel, trek, have adventures, be a minimalist, hopefully adopt a cat and a dog and live a spiritual life and keep bettering myself cause I will not compromise on my standards and my moral compass.
You can clearly see I have issues and trauma that I have not fully recovered from and I think I never will, especially because of what society and people.have become. I have more respect for a sex worker than a modern girl/woman.
Yes, there are plenty of men that are equally as disgusting as these women. However, these women are possessed in competing and becoming equals to such lowest of the low degraded men of society. Feminism and girl power enourages it.
I have accepted that I want to live a hermit nomad life.
I appreciate whatever feedback, criticism you have to offer.
Warm regards, Vishal, India.

2019.05.11 07:17 lightmakerflex1 Feminism is a psyop to destroy women & the family.

The book, “Illuminati in Hollywood” explains it perfectly:
Hollywood’s leading ladies love to promote feminism and “stand up for women’s rights” in America as if we were still living in medieval times. Celebrities are the primary vehicles through which modern feminism is promoted. Feminism today claims to be a female-friendly movement for “women’s rights,” but is actually a strange and malicious movement that is waging war, not only against men, but also against women who prefer the “traditional gender roles,” or who just like to be regular women and do “womanly” things. Hollywood uses their Cultural Marxist methods and the power of the media to demonize women who want to be stay-at-home moms, by claiming they are “victims” of a “male-dominated patriarchal society.” Feminists and their Illuminati financiers have organized a rebellion of women who now refuse to do “womanly” things like know how to cook, or sew, or even raise children. Talentless tramps like Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus are held up as role models for modern women when they have no purpose other than to produce masturbation material for morons by posting scantly clad selfies on social media. Women like Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton, who are portrayed as divine royalty by the mainstream media, often can’t sing, dance, they’re not funny, they can’t sew or make creative arts and crafts, they can’t cook a decent meal, they don’t grow or maintain a garden, they don’t have anything remotely interesting or intellectual to say, and have virtually nothing to contribute to society at all, but nevertheless they are built up as role models for women to aspire to be like, when they are nothing but pop culture parasites whose only skills involve shopping and posting selfies. Kaley Cuoco, who plays Penny on the hit show The Big Bang Theory, was viciously attacked in the media after she revealed in an interview that she liked to cook for her husband. “I cook for Ryan five nights a week. It makes me feel like a housewife; I love that. I know it sounds old-fashioned, but I like the idea of women taking care of their men. I’m so in control of my work that I like coming home and serving him.” 160 In the interview she was asked if she was a feminist. “Is it bad if I say no? It’s not really something I think about. Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around...I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that’s because I’ve never really faced inequality.” 161 After she was attacked by feminist blogs for “betraying other women” she issued an “apology” claiming her comments were taken out of context. 162 Kirsten Dunst has also been attacked for not supporting feminism. “We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking—it’s a valuable thing my mum created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work…” 163 Feminist blog Jezebel quickly responded with a post saying, “Kirsten Dunst is not paid to write gender theory so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that she’s kind of dumb about it.” 164 Shailene Woodley, star of Divergent, was asked if she thought of herself as a feminist, and she answered, “No because I love men, and I think the idea of ‘raise women to power, take the men away from the power’ is never going to work out because you need balance.” 165 Ms. Magazine then furiously denounced Woodley and published an article titled “Why Feminists Need to Take Over School Boards,” so they could work to indoctrinate children with their twisted worldview. Beyonce, who had a huge banner reading Feminist behind her when she performed at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2013, has been built up by the Hollywood celebrity machine as the ideal woman. She’s a singing stripper basically, who has no skills other than shaking her butt on stage while singing about how “girls run the world.” Beyonce was the face of a feminist campaign called “Ban Bossy” in 2014 which aimed to equate the use of the word “bossy” the same as a racial slur. This, of course, while her husband, rapper Jay-Z, repeatedly calls women bitches and hoes in his music, which is obviously demeaning to women, but in this Orwellian double speak hypocritical world of Hollywood, it’s ‘do as I say, not as I do.’ In fact, Time magazine conducted a study of Jay-Z’s lyrics and discovered that out of 217 songs on his 15 different albums, 109 of them contain the word “bitch.” 166 That’s 50% of his songs! The “Ban Bossy” campaign even got the public support of First Lady Michelle Obama, along with Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg, Girls Scouts CEO Maria Chavez and others who apparently didn’t see the hypocrisy in bringing Beyonce aboard the campaign. Feminists often complain that men make more money than women, but fail to acknowledge that men often work jobs that involve higher safety risks that expose them to physical and health hazards, which no woman in her right mind would ever consider doing. Or jobs that involve getting dirty (like a mechanic or garbage man) or work that involves backbreaking labor (pouring concrete, a brick layer, etc.). The “wage gap” is a debunked feminist myth, as Christina Hoffman, a female writer at Time magazine explains, “No matter how many times this wage gap claim is decisively refuted by economists, it always comes back. The bottom line: the 23-cent gender pay gap is simply the difference between the average earnings of all men and women working full-time. It does not account for differences in occupations, positions, education, job tenure or hours worked per week. When such relevant factors are considered, the wage gap narrows to the point of vanishing.” 167 Evolutionary biologist David Buss explains in his historic analysis of human mating behavior The Evolution of Desire , that, “Feminist theory sometimes portrays men as being united with all other men in their common purpose of oppressing women. But the evolution of human mating suggests that this scenario cannot be true, because men and women compete primarily against members of their own sex. Men strive to control resources mainly at the expense of other men. Men deprive other men of their resources, exclude other men from positions of status and power, and derogate other men in order to make them less desirable to women.” 168 Buss continues, “A startling consequence of sexual strategies, for example, is that men’s dominant control of resources worldwide can be traced, in part, to women’s preference in choosing a mate. These preferences, operating repeatedly over thousands of generations, have led women to favor men who possess status and resources and to disfavor men who lack these assets. Ancestral men who failed to acquire such resources failed to attract women as mates.” 169 So basically the reason men tend to be more driven and strive to achieve high status and positions of power, is because that’s what women are attracted to! Not to mention there are other biological reasons for men to be more aggressive such as testosterone and other genetic components. “Women’s preferences for a successful, ambitious, and resourceful mate and men’s competitive mating strategies evolved together,” Buss continues. “These strategies include risk taking, status striving, derogation of competitors, coalition formation, and an array of individual efforts aimed at besting other men on the dimensions that women desire. The intertwining of these co-evolved mechanisms in men and women created the conditions for men to dominate in the domain of resources.” 170 The women who complain that men rule the world fail to realize that men only work towards those ends in order to impress women! Buss says, “The forces that originally caused the resource inequality between the sexes, namely women’s preference and men’s competitive strategies, are the same forces that contribute to maintaining resource inequality today.” 171 Adam Weishaupt, the founder of the Illuminati, wrote about how they encouraged women to rebel against their duties of domestic management and motherhood under the banner of “freedom.” The original writings of the Illuminati read, “There is no way of influencing men so powerfully as by means of the women. These should therefore be our chief study; we should insinuate ourselves into their good opinion, give them hints of emancipation from the tyranny of public opinion, and of standing up for themselves; it will be an immense relief to their enslaved minds to be freed from any one bond of restraint, and it will fire them the more, and cause them to work for us with zeal, without knowing that they do so; for they will only be indulging their own desire of personal admiration” 172 Feminists are so short-sighted and hypocritical they don’t even realize that while they demand society stop imposing expectations on them to do “womanly” things (like knowing how to cook, or raise children), their hypocrisy is revealed when they still expect “manly” duties to be carried out by men. The same feminists who think it’s sexist if a man expects them to know how to cook a decent meal (like their mother and grandmother could before feminism threw a wrench into the dynamics of relationships), still expect men to diagnose their car problems, fix things around the house, shovel snow, kill mice, and carry in heavy groceries or furniture (which they should do, by the way). Despite what feminists call “male privilege” (meaning they believe men have it easier in society simply because they are men due to the “patriarchal male dominated society” men supposedly control) 92% of workplace deaths are men, 173 76% of homicide victims are men, 174 97% of combat deaths are men, 80% of suicides are men, 175 the majority of homeless people are men; women receive custody of children in 84% of custody cases, many people deny that men could possibly ever suffer from domestic abuse at the hands of female partners, but statistics show that 40% of domestic violence victims are men who are assaulted by their wives or girlfriends. 176 The final nail in the coffin of this fallacious argument of “male privilege” can be summed up in a phrase that every married man knows all too well: Happy wife, happy life . 177 The big secret all married couples know is that the wife is “the boss,” and pretty much every married man literally refers to his wife as the “boss.” If you’re a man, and still young and single, you may think your life will be different when you eventually get married, but the same hope has failed almost every man on the planet for generation after generation as their glory days of bachelorhood disappeared and they slowly found themselves driving a minivan with a honey do list in hand as they head to Home Depot on Saturday morning while their wives are getting their hair done. Hollywood’s feminist propaganda has gone into high gear in recent years, and their hostility towards traditional (normal) women is clear to anyone who has eyes to see. Blockbuster films like Mad Max: Fury Road, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, 178 and the Hunger Games series have all portrayed women as the superior sex. 179 Mad Max: Fury Road was even called the “feminist picture of the year” by the New York Post. 180 It portrayed Max as a bumbling buffoon who needed to be repeatedly saved by Charlize Theron’s character Imperator Furiosa, who was basically the star of the movie.
———
Sorry it didn’t separate paragraphs when pasting. If the NWO end up destroying the family unit, we will be screwed. They cannot control us in an NWO unless the family is destroyed first. We have to stay vigilant and united regardless of gender or race. Feminism is a sinister plot. Rockefeller once tricked women into getting jobs so he can have twice the amount of slaves for the price of one after lowering wages. Now kids are thrown in day care where undercover Satanists raise them. It’s time to really wake up folks. The magician cannot trick us if we know how the magic trick works.

2016.03.22 21:49 badeae1 The Evolution of Porn

The depiction of sex was present before it was even video captured from the third century book of Kama Sutra to the sculptures in the city of Pompeii.
But it has only been in the last sixty years or so that porn has begun to spread like wildfire. The first was the Playboy magazine that began depicting nude women via still images back in the year of 1953. Keep in mind that back then it was a criminal offense to even publish such material as is the case of the convicted Samuel Roth.
It was only when Lasse Braun and his business partner, Reuben Sturman started peep shows with loops of film that the real trouble began. Sturman began setting up more than 60,000 peep shows that were set up with single booths displaying porn and had tissue boxes propped up. They were known as "pay and spray" booths. But videos had not reached mainstream yet due to the court ruling and the inability to view it privately.
That all changed when the VHS was brought in along with the Miller court case ruling. The result was astonishing, around 75% of VHC tapes sold in the US in 1978 were pornographic.
Fast forward to 1991 and the world wide web was introduced. Still images could now be brought to your display in an instant without going out to one of those peep shows. A couple of years later and the internet continued to spread and grow in its speed. This lead to the rapid growth of pornography as well as expansion in all genres. Suddenly, it was accessible, private and no expenditure on the user was required.
All the criterias of the ultimate addiction was fulfilled. But that was not all that the rapid growth of porn brought, it also affected the media and skewed the people's perspective on what is considered as porn.
Back in the 1960s, a women topless or showing some skin was considered softcore porn. Look around you and specifically at your social media circle. Your feed on facebook from friends to ads has simply become the softcore porn of 1960s. The terms will continue to spread and sooner or later porn might become the norm for the coming generations. Another aspect to consider is today's role models from kim kardashian to miley cyrus.
Even a music video today cannot be famous unless there is some shedding of skin or has women with revealing clothing acting in obscene ways. Your messenger is sometimes bombarded with texts to buy pornographic images from young women. People must wake up to this terrible ordeal and take action. If we continue down this evolutionary pathway, the beast will only continue to grow and I for one definitely don't this for our future generations.
Some facts to consider about pornography:
By 2012, Xvideos had become the largest porn site on the web with 4.4 billion page views per months. Xvideos was three times the size of CNN or ESPN, and twice the size of Reddit. Pornhub dwarfs regular sites and sits next to google in terms of storage utilization. Today, Xvideos is the 43rd most popular website in the world.
So to sum it up, pornography is growing and evolving along with the technological tides (e.g. Virtual Reality), however technology can be used to also increase our awareness and motivate us to quit such addictive habits.

2013.11.26 18:15 tabledresser [Table] IAmA: I used to be a paparazzo (2007-2011). I'm here to reveal all secrets of the dirty work and talk about celebrities.

Verified? (This bot cannot verify AMAs just yet)

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?...it'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.
SHE'S AWESOME AND I'M IN LOVE WITH HER.
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...
Yeah.
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.
