Video: Britney update!

She's back in Los Angeles, where she almost caused a paparazzi riot on her arrival at LAX. In watching that video, I'm thinking:
  • The advent of relatively cheap autofocus digital cameras has swollen the ranks of semi-pro paparazzi. The cost of film would keep most of them out of the game.
  • Celebrities could avert this kind of scene if they'd stop trying to play the hard-to-get recluse, surrounded by bodyguards shoving photographers aside. Britney could have come out the arrivals gate, held an impromptu photo session, and then said, "OK, boys, you've got your pics. Now, I need to go catch my ride, so please let me through."
Think about it. There are other stars as big as or bigger than Britney who don't routinely cause paparazzi mob scenes. She's just not handling them correctly.

UPDATE: Britney's sister, trailer-trash role model Jamie Lynn Spears, is also back home after giving birth to a 7-pound, 11-ounce bastard girl.
