14 Mil For Brangelina Baby Pics

Pitt, Jolie A person involved in the negotiations for pictures of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's newborn twins says the rights have fetched $14 million.The person asked not to be named because he was not authorized to release the figure. People magazine scored the photos in a joint deal with the London-based Hello! magazine, and the two will split the bill. (source)

I guess selling pictures is a part of celebrity lifestlye and it doesn't phase many celebrities but, I mean come on. When does the baby and wedding picture selling stop? As far as the children, they have no say. How does anyone know if they want their pictures plastered all over tabloids and magazine covers since they can't speak? Again, I guess this is nothing to celebrities but, is there ever a time when celebs will just say no and vow to have an inch of privacy? I guess Halle is the only one that feels this way. Don't these celebs have enough money? Do they really need to exploit their children for millions of dollars that they already have in the bank? Maybe exploitation is a little far fetched because they're just pictures but, still.

The money that is being paid for the baby pics is not for their personal gain, they are making them donate it all to charity.

I think it is exploitation.

I kind of thought about it as exploitation to for a minute but, after thinking Paparazzis are gonna try their best to get a pic of them with their babies anyway. If they're out on the streets or in public they're gonna get their photos taken and they'll be sold to magazines anyway. If anonymous is right and the profits are going to charity then I guess it's an ok move.
