BOD Fights The Fame Game

In the latest issue of Hot Press - which apparently still publishes - Brian O'Driscoll has had a go at the media and in particular, stalker photographers.

“What irritates me is like last month when I had bagfuls of Christmas shopping and I spotted this guy manoeuvring his way through the people on the pavement to take a picture.

“I tried to give him the slip by disappearing into the Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre, but he followed me in and tells me he’s going to get the shot, so I might as well deal with it. I said, ‘What? Just leave me alone. I give you enough of my time at other things’. And he more or less laughed in my face.”

The last line is pretty interesting. O'Driscoll clearly thinks that a media openness will spare him from douchebag paparazzi who stalk people through blizzards. Sorry, BOD, such is the price of fame. At least you got to hang with Springsteen.
