i think the point of this is nothing that could be offensive to katy. those bikini photographs were personal, she was out, having a vacation. there was no need for photos like that to end up all over the web, however they did and that's something we have to deal with.. but that does not mean they need to be posted on a forum dedicated to her, we're all about respect for Katy and half naked photos of her relaxing on the beach are not very respectful.

the difference between after show photos and the mexico photos are that the after show ones are still respectful. they aren't degrading and the bikini photos, believe it or not were probably taken and put all over the web with different stories to degrade her. if that makes any sense.
if not, i'll just shut up.


dont shutup . those were good words =]

thank you PishPosh

now, i was outside the back door at the new york concerts and i saw the way the paps get ready for her coming out. honestly? she knows there's camera people out there.

Those are all 'on-spotlight' pics. She is aware of them and is posing for them, and they are taken during or after her gigs. And those pics in Mexico and Barbados were not taken by family members, so I don't know where you're getting that from. And how are pics of her shopping with friends less invasive than pics of her on a public beach? And the Barbados thing? She's technically not on vacation. She's down there for a gig and just took a day off to frolick on the beach. No different then if she went to a theme park for a day. Would pics of something like that be OK?

i think the point of this is nothing that could be offensive to katy. those bikini photographs were personal, she was out, having a vacation. there was no need for photos like that to end up all over the web

What if candid pics of her on vacation hiking in the woods or walking the streets of Paris were to come out, would those be OK? Your also saying any girl going to a beach wearing a bikini is offensive, isn't being respectful, and is being degrading? Wow! Just, wow! People are tapdancing around to find reasons for not posting pics of Katy showing skin. That's what I'm taking away from this, but no one is willling to say it. Ridiculous! Either pictures are invasive or they arnen't. How revealing the outfit Katy is wearing means nothing. She's worn pretty revealing stuff on stage if you think about it! Katy's own 'off-spotlight' criteria should be the deciding factor (I agree with this). And if your criteris is that you're afraid people will say degrading thing about her, then you should just disallow 95% of all her pics. And that makes no sense. What if she did a shoot for a swimwear mag? With her body she could, you know! You think people wouldn't make dirty comments then?

EDIT: This will be my last post on this matter (YIPEE!) Either you all get it or you don't (and I mean YOU ALL--eveyone involved). It's come to my attention that the criteria used for what can get posted here isn't as logical as I would hope.

I totally agree with this. If Katy is spending time with her family, those pictures shouldn't be posted at all. Going from show to show/ airplanes/etc, is different, because she's in the public eye, but when she's with her family, she's trying not to be in the public eye, therefore making it private. I know if I was famous, I would be absolutely pissed seeing pictures of me and my family swimming, relaxing etc all over the internet, and especially on a forum.
And I loveee it when celebs pose for paparazzi lol, sometimes they make it like a candid photoshoot. work it :]

I don't understand why people are arguing and making such a big deal out of this. This thread doesn't really seem up for discussion, does it? So just back off. The administrators are the ones who run this AWESOME site, not us, so just follow the rules that have been given. We are lucky to have this site and to have Katy, so just relax and find the pictures elsewhere - no harm done, right?

it's funny ralphone, but it seems that you consider that only the mexico photos are not allowed, while there ARE some others that were posted and deleted, on which she was wearing more clothes. so the quantity of clothes she's wearing on the not allowed photos is not a "criteria", or at least not the only one. but you really seem to want to focus on the clothes, good for you.

but as you said, maybe the "criterias" are not "logical" (or don't seem logical to you) but they are hers. full stop. and i don't think someone ever said that there were precise criterias, just that katy requested that some specific pics she detailed to the mods would not appear on the forum. and that's what the mods will try to do.

honestly people, if you really want to know if the photos you want to post are allowed or not, it's quite simple, you have the 2 options : wether you post them and see if they get deleted, wether you ask a mod about the photos before you post them. knowing that in the end, very few photos out of all the paps ones would "match the criterias" of not being posted. just ask the mods about your future photos.

(in an other hand, if you wonder wether you can post the photos you're about to post or not, maybe you have a start of answer there... but the confirmation will come from the mods).

Olivia is right - how often has pictures been removed? Not often, that's right. And no, we're not trying to avoind you seeing these pictures - you can go find them on google. We act on Katy's behalf. It's not that big a deal really.

I'm not gonna lie this thread is annoying me so much right now .I can't believe how the short and straight forward post from Kate turned into a 3 page long argument.

Having an opinion is great!But when people are completely stubborn and are obviously never gonna try and understand your point, just let it go, you said what you needed to say.STOP replying!!

my 2 cents. :)

my 0.02 cents. :)

yeah, i'm done for myself, i think i said everything i wanted to ... but sometimes, it takes time and several posts to say it all :) now i think i really am done.

oh last thing : of course ralphone is the one who speaks out and discuss, but i'm sure it's not useless to say it all, even several times said differently, because lots of people don't post but read, and if they're not clear with the facts, it might lead to misunderstanding. so yeah, basically sort of replying to ralphone but talking to everyone who's reading and might need some clarifications on some points. that's why i didn't quote him, i'm not talking to him specifically, just taking his points as a base to explain what seems unclear and seems to bring questions (i mean, if it's unclear for him, it might as well be unclear for someone else, it's not everyone else that is "not enclined to discuss it for hours and hours" and "not really enclined to even try to get it" and "willing to discuss it for the sake of it").

I totally agree with you guys, it gets me upset to see everyone arguing about such a simple thing! The mods aren't saying you can't post any pics. And come on, Katy's not like "You can't put these and these and these and these up" she asks a simple favor, we'll do it. It would be different if we were arguing about a crucial topic, but arguing about keeping Katy's pivacy is absolutely ridiculous. She's in the public eye all the time, and wants her PRIVACY, definition of that being she wants time alone, and doesn't want pictures spread/discussed as she is doing so. Put yourself in her position. If you were constantly followed and got a day to relax and be with your family, would you want paparazzi getting pics, and then have them on the internet, and then have them discussed and spread throughout a forum? I know I wouldn't.

Oh yeah, you're absolutely right !

Plus, we're not some 5 year-old, so let's be rational and adult, shall we.
Peace and understanding guys, that's all we need !  :pinkbow:

I think regular paparazzi pics are fine but there is an obvious difference between professional photojournalism and not, even amongst papz.

The following is an  examples of "not ok" pics...
