1. I think it is ridiculous the way the 'stalkerazzi' treats celebrites. Seriously, they put their pants on one leg at a time like the rest of us mere mortals...lol

2. If the Biebs felt that he was in danger, then he did the right thing by calling 911.

3. I have had to call 911 a couple times. Once when I witnessed a hit and run accident. The second time I had to call was when my son required emergency medical care.

I'm not surprised. This has been going on for years.

I have called 911. One time I was driving on a highway that goes through town and on a side street I saw a man parked in the middle of the road having a heart attack or stroke or something. Anyway, I called 911 and pulled off to get behind him so I could give the intersection address and by the time I got to where he was he had pulled out into traffic and took off. So I just had to hang up, I wasn't about to go in hot pursuit.

I assume your son is ok?! And how awful to have to see a  hit and run. I'm glad you were able to help out.

I can't imagine what that would be like. Seeing someone suffering like that. I'm glad you tried. Some people wouldn't have done that.

I think the paparazzi needs to back off the celebrities. It's one thing to take pictures, but to put their lives in danger as well as everyone around them for a few dollars is really not right. I feel bad for all celebrities that are chased and harrased like that, not just Bieber.  I have had to call 911 once when my daughter had a seizure and then once when my nephew busted his head open on a shelf.

I don't know how they would enforce it, but there really should be restrictions on paparazzi behavior. They don't respect celebrities. All they see is $$, and they'll do whatever it takes to get it. Isn't that why the car Princess Di was killed in was speeding? Because paparazzi were chasing them?
I feel bad for Beibs, just like any other celeb, but I have to wonder what's worse: being chased by paparazzi, or a thousand screaming tweens. lol
I have called 911, in an abusive relationship. Thank God I got away from that.
The best though was when my daughter was about six months and playing with the phone. I thought "no harm" until, of all number combinations, she dialed 911. Fortunately, they were very understanding when they called back, and she only played with a toy phone after that.

 Good Morning!

I will take a Chai Tea. MMmmm!

I think Paparazzi are a little too into celebs faces. Yes they know being a celeb comes w/that territory but I think sometimes the Paps push it. I think the media is the real issue. Like why does everyone need to know where JB is driving to? Who cares! I think everyone is just WAY into celebrities lives.

I think it was wrong for JB to be chased by Paps. There is really no reason for that. I don't think Paps should be aloud to follow them or be w/in 50ft of them if they have their children. I see so many celebs tweet about paparazzi being in their face when they are w/their little ones.

I only called 911 once when I was about 10. My sister fell down the stairs. They asked me if she was "consious" and I had no idea what that meant lol

Chocolate Shake please

I have had to call 911 a couple of times.
I think it must be challenging on celebrities sometimes with all the chasing, etc.
