West praises paparazzi for Rihanna shotMay 23, 2009 \
Kanye West has praised the paparazzi for doing a “good job” on a shot of Rihanna. The rapper plead not guilty on Friday to assault and other charges that stemmed from an incident at Los Angeles International airport involving a photographer. The New York Daily News reports that the ‘Heartless’ singer was impressed with a recent pap photo of Rihanna in New York City. “Why can’t all paparazzi photos be this good?” he wrote on his blog. “Sometimes the paps over-expose the lens or have the flash too high taking all the emotion out of the moment. Good job on this one.” West, 31, was also arrested on November 14 last year in Newcastle for a separate scuffle with a photographer. He did not face any charges from that clash.
