An unfortunate side effect of being a celebrity is being followed around by the paparazzi everywhere you go.
Ashlee Simpson is no different, as you’ll see below in the following seven photos.
1. Step one: Blissful ignorance.
2. Step two: Slight realization of the sound of cameras clicking away.
3. Step three: Look to confirm the status of said photographers.
4. Step four: Realize they’re there, already taking your photo in front of the Marlboros, Parliaments, and 5-Hour Energy supply.
5. Step five: Have vivid visions of this photo being front and center in a “Stars! They’re Just Like Us!” feature.
6. Step six: Front. And. Center.
Just. Like. Us.
