Lily Allen questions her career choice due to paparazzi harassment
Can you imagine waking up every morning, jumping out of bed and hurrying to work where you harass hardworking, successful artists, commonly making them feel worse and in some cases causing them to wonder if they've chosen the wrong path in life? In an interview shown below, Lily Allen talks about the paparazzi hounding her.
Lily Allen: "I don't like this, this is my time off. I've just been on tour for two years. This isn't my job to walk out my house and be followed around by 30 guys with cameras all day. That's when you start going, 'F--- this s---. I've really had it.' But now...I'm working, I'm on the promo trail, there's an interest. It makes sense. But there are times when it doesn't, and I get irritated and annoyed and unhappy at those times and I start thinking maybe I'm not doing the right thing with my life because it's obviously not making me happy."
Is it possible this is what the paparazzi machine is really after - to drive our successful artists to abandon their art so that we have nothing left in this world to bring us some happiness and help us forget our troubles?
I frankly don't know how the paparazzi even get out of bed in the morning.
