KANYE WEST TO LOVE THE PAPARAZZI

Rapper Kanye West has already made his New Year's Eve resolution. The singer has promised to make peace with the paparazzi. West has been arrested on two different occasions after clashing with the celebrity snappers. Police in Newcastle, England, detained Kanye last month after he was accused of pushing a camera into a photographers face. He was then released without charges. West and his assistant were also arrested over a similar incident at Los Angeles' LAX airport in September. The pair was charged with felony vandalism after reportedly smashing a snapper's camera, but the charges were later dropped by the Los Angeles California County District Attorney's office. And the rapper is adamant that in 2009 he will make more of an effort to be pleasant to photographers. He tells TMZ.com, "I love you guys. That's my New Year's resolution. Me and the paparazzi."
