Paparazzo Falls for "Idol" Wannabeen

There are certain celebrities a paparazzo will put himself in harm's way to get a shot of -- like Brad Pitt or Britney Spears ... and Ryan Starr?

Starr, "Idol" Season One punk/porn type, was caught exiting Opera last night, where a clumsy photog backed into a Vespa and flipped backwards as he tried to get a shot of the rejected croonette.

Everyone laughed at the pap's misfortune -- and Starr quickly disappeared back into obscurity.
