Hailey Bieber is opening up about what it's like dealing with the paparazzi, and how sometimes they go way too far. The model spoke to Dixie D'Amelio about a recent situation with photographers that left her feeling extremely uncomfortable.
"Paparazzi is such an interesting thing to me because I really don't understand it and I think it's a really really weird invasive thing," Hailey told Dixie on her YouTube show, The Early Late Night Show.
Hailey opened up about a situation back in March when she felt very disrespected by some paparazzi. Hailey recalled when she was exiting a restaurant in West Hollywood after getting dinner with her husband, Justin Bieber. "We were coming out of this place and there were curtains on the sides walking into the entrance and I had noticed that someone had stuffed the camera under the curtain from the ground angle," Hailey said. She explained that she was wearing a skirt, so she was concerned they were trying to shoot up her skirt.
"I'm wearing a skirt and I'm up here and you're down here," she said. "What angle are you getting if you're doing that?"
At the time, Justin confronted the photographers about the situation, but they denied trying to get a shot up Hailey's skirt, saying "nobody would ever do that." Hailey, though, has had two experiences where paparazzi photographed her underwear and then published the photos.
"I think when you're a woman and there are men taking these photos, it feels really really invasive and it feels disrespectful," she said.
Hailey explained that every time she leaves her house, there are people waiting to take her picture. "To a certain extent, you have to understand it comes with this industry and this lifestyle, although, I still don't understand how people are allowed to just take photos of you without your permission," she said, saying that she does try to set some boundaries with the photographers. "I don't think anybody should allow someone to disrespect them," she said.
Dixie explained that she always talks to the paparazzi because if she doesn't respond, people think she's being rude. "I try to be so nice to everyone because if it's put on the Internet, they're going to be like, 'Oh, she's horrible, why isn't she talking to them?'" she said.
Hailey then reminded Dixie that she doesn't "owe anybody anything," and if she doesn't want to answer paparazzi's invasive questions, she doesn't have to. Yes, we are all for women helping out other women here!
