One of the less desirable aspects of fame -- and we are, it must be noted, perpetuating the cottage industry right now -- is getting trailed at every step by hordes of of paparazzi. Considering the Truman Show-esque halo of camerapersons stalking them, it's pretty hard to blame Aaron Rodgers for answering idiotic questions condescendingly, or Lamar Odom—who gets no respite from the constant pursuit because of his (supposedly failing) relationship with Khloe Kardashian—for smashing a photog's camera and vehicle. (You can assign a little blame for throttling the car. Like 15% blame.)

Rodgers, after being earnestly questioned about Colin Kaepernick wearing a Dolphins hat and what's going to happen to Aaron Hernandez, had a trite response: "I think at some point you're gonna get a real job."

Odom, meanwhile, appears very nonchalant as he's destroying property, like it's as much a part of his normal daily routine as binge eating candy. It's almost as if he woke up that morning and decided he was going to smash a paparazzo's car (which, according to TMZ, happened but is not in the video, which begins mid-incident) and camera.


As the incident winds down, Odom graciously poses for a selfie with a woman who parked her car in the middle of traffic to make the request—which, cosmically speaking, was the most appropriate possible conclusion to the whole episode.
