Though her mom might be the reigning queen of selfies, North West doesn’t seem to be too fond of cameras.
On Thursday afternoon, the 3-year-old was spotted with her family leaving the Museum of Ice Cream in Los Angeles. The paparazzi, of course, were there to capture the moment, but North wasn’t having it.
While she and Kim Kardashian made their way to their vehicle, North decided to give the photographers a piece of her mind. “No pictures, no pictures!” she screamed while holding an ice cream cone.
Kim laughed it off, telling her first-born, “Come on, boo boo. No more pictures, OK?”
The exchange is equal parts adorable and funny, but it isn’t surprising. North has had a history of handling the paparazzi like a boss, demanding them to stop taking her photo.
It’s clear she gets this from her dad.
Kanye West has had a love-hate relationship with the paparazzi throughout the years. There are times when he’s cooperated with the photographers, engaging with them and gifting them Yeezys. In other situations, Kanye has screamed at the paparazzi for daring to speak to him and has also been accused of getting violent with them.
In his 2013 interview with Zane Lowe, the rapper shared his thoughts on the paparazzi and how they’ve effected the art of photography.
“Photography used to be a sexy profession. It was like being a ball player or like a rapper or like a venture capitalist," he said. "[The paparazzi] completely changed what photography is supposed to mean. The same as how there's like plenty of musicians that have sold the fuck out and changed the art of music. People don't hold that to the highest level of genius anymore […] Paparazzi is necessary, not even a necessary evil. It just needs to be legalized. Meaning at a certain point, there's cutoff switches."
