Motley Crue - Tommy Lee's Rant Over Picture-taking Fans

Motley Crue star Tommy Lee is begging fans to respect his privacy by putting away their cameras when they spot him in public.
The drummer is fed up with being asked to pose for photographs when he is off duty, and insists his only responsibility as a rock star is to "entertain" when he takes to the stage.
In a post on the Motley Crue Facebook.com page, he rages, "I f**king Love my fans! And you know this! What I have a problem with is... Taking pictures! I hate it! Irritates the f**k out of me when people say... you owe it to your fans, they put you where you are, etc., etc.! I certainly don't owe anybody anything! When I bought all my Led Zeppelin records and concert tickets I didn't say, 'One day these f**kers are gonna owe me a picture...'
"I'm not here to take pictures with you, I'm here to entertain you! Nobody put me where I am but ME! They may have helped inspire me with their love for what I do... but I put myself right here where I want to be with a lot of hard work, practice, talent, luck, etc."
The rocker also wants to be left alone in another place where he is regularly recognised - public bathrooms.
He writes, "Ya wouldn't wanna handshake standing at the p**ser (urinal) in the men's bathroom next to me would ya?... And yes that's happened to me too... Or when your (sic) eating a nice quite (sic) meal with your family, some rude jack**s comes up and asks for a picture! You can't even imagine what kinda crazy has happened to me."
