John Mayer's Paparazzi-Control Proposal: Put "P's" on their License Plates!

Large-headed, sensitive singer and Jennifer Aniston boyfriend John Mayer is testifyin' in the war against thuggish paps that chase celebs all over Los Angeles. Reports the L.A. Times, there was a hearing yesterday about the city's paparazzi problem, where Mayer spoke: "I'm asking you to regulate it... I don't want to beg the city of Los Angeles to give me 1987 back. I love being a famous musician in 2008… This is about safety."" He had a host of recommendations, including:

  • A large "P" for "paparazzi" on all photographers' license plates.
  • All paps should be registered.
  • A law should be put in place to ""govern an acceptable filming distance from an unwilling subject [to keep] everybody safe and misbehavior accountable."
