Baby Pictures for Sale
I don’t know about anyone else but I really don’t like the idea that magazines and TV shows bid for the first pictures taken of the child of a famous person, or a famous couple. Recently Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt had twins and got over 10 million for the pics!!! In their case they gave the money to charity and fair play to them but I’m sure a lot of people keep the money and it just doesn’t sit right with me.
I know I have no right to judge people but it just seems off that parents would sell pics of their kids!!! I can understand if someone is being followed and basically stalked for a picture so they decide to just release one picture to all media in an attempt to recapture some privacy, but to take bids?
I don’t know, maybe I’m being a prude but it just seems wrong to sell a picture of a baby to the press. The real problem though is the people who buy mags etc to see the picture. If those people didn’t do that then the picture wouldn’t be worth anything and this kind of thing wouldn’t happen. So why do people run to buy the magazine that has the first picture of a baby such as that of Angie and Brad or Kate and Tom?
Is it really that interesting to see what this baby looks like? The baby hasn’t asked for all this attention, they didn’t enter into a career knowing they’d be followed and photographed? I think they deserve some privacy but I am clearly in the minority.
