Benedict has a point…

So the third series of Sherlock has recently begun filming – if you have never watched Sherlock please do so! – and the main actor Benedict Cumberbatch decided to give the paparazzi a subtle message as he left his trailer.

This photo puts the job of the paparazzi into perspective somewhat. Every single day we can not look in a newspaper or look online and not see photos of celebrities doing the most mundane of things and then somehow this becomes news. How is Victoria Beckham eating a burger somehow a newsworthy piece of information? The answer? It’s not. It isn’t like all these paparazzi turn up, get the pictures they want and then leave. These people will easily sit around for hours and hours trying to get a photo of a certain celebrity and often a lot of the photos that are taken aren’t used in the article.

Is it just me who finds seeing other people’s holiday photos boring? No? Just me then….

It seems that paparazzi are obsessed with snapping photos of various celebrities in various sunny foreign places and somehow them being on holiday is something that the general public needs to be made aware of. If the photos are of a female celebrity in a bikini usually the headline will make some reference to her body shape – another thing that paparazzi are obsessed with – and either criticizing it or praising it. Another place you are guranteed to find the strange creature that is paparazzi is an airport. If a celebrity is jetting into any airport there will be a barrage of paparazzi ready and waiting to shove cameras in their face. They are human beings as well, some people need to learn to respect personal space

In my opinion Benedict has got it completely right. The majority of photographs that the paparazzi take is of celebrities and somehow turn them into newsworthy stories; whereas as other subjects don’t even get half the coverage that they deserve

Shame on you paparazzi

It isn’t just the fashion-eccentric Lady Gaga that is sporting these heel-less shoes. They have been seen on other stars such as Amy Childs, Victoria Beckham and Sarah Harding. Now you can own a pair too.

Why women love high heels

It’s not unusal to see groups of women tottering around on a night out in eye-wateringly high heels. You know the ones I’m talking about. The ones that are about 7 inches high with two inch platform that look utterly ridiculous. These are the exact same women who you see at the end of night carrying the shoes while walking home with their aching feet. I don’t see the purpose of them because it surely isn’t providing any benefit for their feet and back, since wearing high heels for a prolong time actually causes more problems than it solves. It isn’t attractive when you see a woman in a pair of heels that she can barely walk in. Then again appearance comes before comfort for some women
