Kanye -- Camera Shy?

11/1/2007 9:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We ain't sayin' he's an attention-digger, but Kanye West has never been the most reticent of celebs.


That's why it was all the more puzzling when his bodyguard and then Kanye himself went ballistic on our cameraman yesterday in SoHo. Our guy was filming him as he emerged from a nondescript office building on Houston Street -- when his security guy ordered the camera turned off, even though he let the photographers snap away.

Seconds later, Kanye stepped right in, telling us that there would be "a problem" if we didn't stop rolling, alleging an invasion of privacy on his residence. Sure, except the place he stays when in NYC ... is actually a few blocks away.

Just wondering...It would be interesting to see what would happen if all paps simply quit taking pics of the stars. The Stars seem to be beating photogs more and more these days. I get that to some degree, but......it's the pics that keep them in the minds of fans as weel as thier talent( Brit to name a few). They all want the fame but not the game that goes along with it. I say stop the presses...who gives a rats ass about the Oscar's...they come to you guys to sell pic's of thier 1st born.....oh ya that's already been done.lol

Kanye is far from a BLACK Thug! He is a strong-minded, college-educated man. Please do not confuse the two.

It is still an invasion of privacy.
