The love-hate relationship shared between paparazzi and celebrities will forever be a catch 22.
The paps need celebrities to continuously make themselves publicly available so they can snap photos and share them with the people who are dying to know what kind of drink Alex Rodriguez gets at Starbucks. Likewise, stars often need the photogs to follow their every move and snap shots of their every day lives, like exiting a gym and waiting on line for airport security. These seemingly silly photos help keep stars in the limelight and the topic of conversation.
While at times both parties may go a little overboard, one can't help but love the breaking point for a celebrity when they just can't take it another second and need to shield their faces from the flash bulbs. From shopping bags to stuffed animals, the stars will do just about anything to hide from photographers when they are looking less than perfect.
Honestly, can you blame them?
