After a couple widely reportedly run-ins with paparazzi around the world, Kanye West is ready to make peace with the shutterbugs, and will do so beginning next year.
The producer recently told TMZ that he’s already made his New Year’s resolution, and it’s to make peace with photographers.
“I love you guys. That’s my New Year’s resolution. Me and the paparazzi,” he said.
In November, West was detained, then arrested following an incident with a photographer in Newcastle, England. During the altercation, he allegedly pushed a camera into a snapper’s face. However, he was released without charge.
Two months prior, the rapper was arrested in a similar incident, but this time it was at Los Angeles’ LAX airport. West and his assistant were charged with felony vandalism, after smashing a paparazzo’s camera on the ground. Again, the charges were dropped.
In 2009, if West lives up to his resolution, he and the paparazzi should get along just fine.
