Pink writes to the paps

Pink has published an open letter to those pesky paps who seem very keen to get a photo of her recently born child. She’d like to make it clear she really doesn’t want endless photos of her child in the papers, but that she will sell one set of official snaps sometime soon to raise money for charity and hopefully satisfy the public’s curiosity (FYI the curious, the baby looks like, well, every other baby).
Writes Pink: “Due to the unsettling, surprisingly aggressive and unsafe measures that the paparazzi seem to be willing to go to in order to secure that ‘first shot’ of our daughter – stalking us, chasing us in cars and sitting outside of our home all day and all night – as new parents Carey and I decided that we would release personal photos of our Willow, and donate all of the money to charity”.
She continues: “Here’s the bottom line: we don’t want you to take our little girl’s picture. We don’t want you to one day follow our little girl home from school. We don’t want our little girl’s picture in a magazine or on a blog. If you take or publish her picture, it is against our wishes, and without our consent as parents, as people”.
