Cyclone Relief? Naah. How About Earthquake Relief? Naah. How About $1M For Photos Of A Wedding? Sure


Last I checked there were literally millions upon millions of people affected by the cyclone and earthquake disasters of the past few weeks. Now, this could be a stretch, but I'm guessing that considerably less people are going to be affected by The Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz wedding this weekend. Oh, I'm sure that a few of Pete's boyfriends will feel they aren't going to get enough attention, or that the four fans Ashlee has left might worry she will stop recording, but aside from those people, who really gives a rats ass if they marry?

Apparently the tabloids and magazines care as the asking price right now for photos of the wedding stands above $1M. Yep, gone out the window from the former pastor is any compassion for people in the world who need the money. No, he turned his back on that a very long time ago. The only thing important to Pimpa Joe right now is making sure he gets as much money as he can off his daughters. See, Pimpa will probably take the photos himself, so the tabloid will pay the photographer for the photos. It will be up to Pimpa whether he shares the money with Pete or Ashlee. I bet for an extra 500K he will go ahead and throw in some honeymoon sex photos as well.

If any tabloid pays that kind of money for those pictures without making some kind of equal contribution to something worthwhile than I think that magazine should be stoned and pilloried everyday. I think the buying of photos from weddings and new baby photos has got to stop. Each of those events should not be a commercial event.

I can't wait until people start charging for funeral photos.

Hear hear Ent!! My thoughts exactly!

AND I can't believe that anyone would think that these to idiots are worth that much money... really now?? Over a million??

If they got married completely naked, hanging upside down, I would still NOT be interested in seeing their wedding pics. Who the Hell cares about these two? I want names!

As annoying as the one million dollar price tag really is, I can't help but like these two. WD said they looked like they really cared about each other. I may not care for their careers, or some of their fashion choices, but as a couple I think its nice to see them happy.

Photo prices are based on anticipated purchases. If people didn't buy the magazines, the photo prices will go down. Apparently they think that 300,000 people will want hard copies of these photos (why?! beyond me).

And I agree with Ent, Papa Joe doesn't care about anyone other than Papa Joe. I'm sure even if the magazines offered a 1 mil for you, 500 thou for charity of your choice, he'd say "Just make it out to the Joe Simpson Retirement Fund."

I wouldn't buy a mag just because those two are on the cover. IMO, they're just young and silly acting/looking to me. I don't care what they do or what they get paid to do it.

I wouln't give 'em 1 cent for their photos. Hell, I won't even look at them when they show up online because I couldn't give a sweet rat's ass about these two goofy looking losers.

I'd also like to add that I've always felt that Pimpa Joe was a scumbag, from Day One, BEFORE I knew the creepy allegations about him, simply because he used to be a preacher, then went into managing his kids' career.

My father is a pastor, and a former professional guitarist that has his share of famous friends and recording tracks. I was his prodigy, especially in music. Yet not for one second did he ever dare to even use his connections to give me a boost, much less "manage" me or go out of his way to help me develop a career. While I resent him for it, I also respect it, not only because he felt I should fight for my own success, but because of his devotion to his faith. He would NEVER leave the faith. NEVER. He would NEVER step down as a minister, for anything. THAT is the mark of a true man of faith--not someone who'd abandon it all at the drop of a hat to oogle his daughters hamburger bun and make money for doing so.

Is it me, or does it look like Ashlee is leading around a mentally and physically challenged person?

PeepStone said...

I think it looks like she's leading a child.

Someone needs to tell the Simpson girls that musicians are only STARTER boyfriends.
