The Princess and the Paparazzi

Disgraceful!

No, it’s not the title of an up-and-coming blockbuster from Hollywood, but a real life drama that is currently in the news. From reports, it would seem that some enterprising paparazzi photographer managed to get close enough to snap pictures of Princess Kate sunbathing topless in a private retreat while on holiday in France. More damning is that a French magazine called Closer, did not think it wrong to splash the pictures all over the front cover.

Needless to say, this has caused a little more than just a stir in the hallowed halls of Buckingham Palace, and both the Royal Family and officials are up in arms about it. Personally I think this whole episode is reason enough to go to war with the French! No, sorry, just kidding – No really!!

Chateau D’Aulet

Prince William is said to be ‘livid’ at the invasion of privacy and I must admit I agree with him. He is currently taking legal advice on how to proceed against either the magazine, the photographer, or both. In my view he should make an example of these people and hammer them for everything they have. To me it is just intolerable the lengths some of these paparazzi will go to get an ‘exclusive’ photo, and the magazine and paper owners who perpetuate this kind of act by publishing should be put on the rack!

Its long past time when these people need to realize that celebrity or not, you still have a right to private moments. What is going to be the next stop, a photo of Harrison Ford or Angelina Jolie sitting on the toilet?

Hounded to Death By the Paparazzi

We went through this whole saga when Princess Diana was hounded to death  by the paparazzi. Nothing was done then to curb their insatiable appetite for invading people’s privacy, and to be honest, I don’t see much happening now over this latest incident.

It is for this reason that I fervently hope Prince William and  Princess Kate take the magazine, the magazine’s editor, and the photographer to the cleaners. From information to date it does not seem likely that President Hollande or the French government are inclined to do anything and it disgusts me.

In Happier Times

All you ever hear from many people, especially the Press is; ‘Freedom of the Press’! To a certain extent I agree, the Press should not be muzzled on points that affect the people, or a political scandal, but there are limits. They trumpet about the Human Rights of ordinary individuals, but do people like Princess Kate not have the same rights? It seems not!

In years gone by there was always a ‘Code of Ethics’ that governed the Press and it was a code that ensured they did not overstep the boundaries of decency, but in the last few years that has all gone out the window. They do not care for ‘decency’ any more and all they are interested in is what boosts circulation. For me it has gone way too far!

If there is no other way to stop this rot then any paper or magazine that prints such stuff should be shut down immediately – for good. Maybe measures of that nature will once again bring back the hallowed ‘Code of Ethics’ of old.

Update 14/9/12

Thankfully, their Royal Highnesses have decided to take legal action against Closer magazine. All I can say is good luck, and make them pay handsomely for their cheek!

Barking Mad Celeb’s (and they are not alone!)

What’s in a name? Quite a lot actually, especially if its a christian name. I read an article about some of the ridiculous christian names given to the off-spring of some of the world’s celebrities and couldn’t help but laugh, mingled with a deep sorrow for the child concerned.

The Geldorf Family

It would seem today that parents are becoming more stupid and thoughtless when naming their children with (in the case of celebrities) nothing more in mind than to generate some free publicity, and an insane desire to be ‘Different’. They do not seem to realise that a child given a stupid senseless christian name will carry it for the rest of their lives, and many will grow to resent their parents thoughtlessness.

Katie Price Vision of Princess Tiaamii

True, that some names sound attractive for a cuddly baby, but what they seem to forget is that eventually these babies will grow to be adults. I can well imagine a serious number of raised eyebrows by clergy performing the Baptism.

Paula Yates and Bob Geldof are a prime example of this mindless stupidity when they named their children Fifi Trixibell, Peaches and Pixie.  Another prime example from Paula Yates, this time with a child by Michael Hutchence who called her baby Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily.

The Zappa's with Moon Unit.

It has been suggested that Frank Zappa was drunk when he named his children Moon Unit, Dweezil and Diva Muffin.

Can you even begin to understand how these children will feel as they grown up. I can well imagine their time in school will be hell on earth with christian names like these. We all know how terribly cruel and vicious children can be, and any child with a ridiculous christian name will a target for the worst of them.

Mel B With Phoenix Chi

How is a child with a name like Fifi Trixibell, Moon Unit, Satchel (Spike Lee), Phoenix Chi (Mel B), Apple (Gwyneth Paltrow), Auralius Cy (Ellie Macpherson) or  Princess Tiaamii (Katie Price and Peter Andre) supposed to develop properly when they are the laughing stock of everyone around them.

Shannyn With Audio Science

It beggars belief that according to reports, Shannyn Soosamon named her child Audio Science! Which planet does she live on !!!

Personally I do not subscribe to this “I need to be different” culture of today. New names come and go and that is not a bad thing, but parents need to think hard before they give their children a christian name. As a new parent you have to ask yourself one basic question; As 15 year-old or even a 40 year-old, would you really want to be known to your friends as Audio Science, Moon Unit or Fifi Trixibell?

Think people, before you condemn your child to a life of purgatory!!!

Roy.
