** Also implied in the lyrics for "Heavy":
--> But when it's hard to breathe, when I just can't get off the floor
--> I long for days when I was free, a life I lived so long before

Added DiffLines:

* Played with in the made for [=TV=] movie, "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas." A self-proclaimed televangelist targets the titular whorehouse that has been in the town for ''generations'' and presumably not broken any laws or caused any problems, according the the sheriff, played by Burt Reynolds. Said televangelist eventually takes a film crew there in the middle of the night, breaks a padlock on the fence marking the boundary to the property and ''then'' has his cameraman turn on the camera, once the gate is open, to make it look like he's invited. He then proceeds to take his film crew storming through the small mansion, rousing numerous prostitutes and clients, making all their faces public to shame them, and rake in the ratings. The sheriff retaliates by visiting his studio, and then, just out of camera frame, ripping off the televangilist's wig, and decking him right into the camera shot of the singing choir and then calmly walking over his prone form, making it look like he just arrived on the scene before leaving.

* A paparazzo once decided it would be a brilliant idea to sneak into BruceLee's backyard to try and get shots of him. [[TooDumbToLive Unfortunately, his kids Shannon and Brandon were in the yard at the time, and he terrified them]]; a '''very''' angry Lee [[PapaWolf kicked the man with such force, it knocked him out instantly and may have killed him if Lee's foot was a bit more to the side.]]

This is a staple of pretty much any work of fiction dealing with celebrities - the characters will inevitably have to deal with paparazzi who are looking for a story to sell at some point, no matter how it affects the lives of the story's subjects, or what laws the paparazzi break in the process of getting the story. This can be considered the {{Jerkass}} flipside or EvilCounterpart to the IntrepidReporter.
