Age ambiguous, teen pop music sensation Lorde, took to twitter this weekend to accuse a paparazzi photographer of maliciously taking photographs of her in public.
“This man has been stalking me, photographing me in public and refusing me my God given right to public privacy!” said Lorde in a Twitter rant on Saturday.
“I’m scared of him.” she added.
To support her position that people shouldn’t be deprived of their privacy while out in public, Lorde posted a picture of her alleged harasser and a link to his Facebook page. To drive the point home, she then posted two photos of Rihanna that the paparazzo in question took earlier this year.
“Those photos of Ri showed her glum, frumpy and without makeup. She looked like someone in ghetto flyover…and a rising star like me can’t have that. This last year pictures of me were distributed that showed my horrible, acne ravaged complexion and my flat chest. Another taken at the beach showed my pasty, cottage cheese thighs. How am I to improve business to male demographics, not to mention desperate fat-shamed women, if I can’t control the carefully manipulated image for which I paid good money?” Lorde later tweeted.
Not all her followers on twitter were sympathetic. When questioned about the apparent inconsistency of welcoming paparazzi at media orchestrated events, red carpets and debuts, Lorde responded, “That’s different. I had hours to spackle my face, get my hair and nails done, do some coke and adorn myself in borrowed jewels and De la Renta fashions.”
However, most fans of Lorde expressed support of the singer, right before they drove to the nearest convenience store to buy the latest New York Post, Star, Celeb Scandal and Daily Mail.
