Have I finally turned into a creature so vile that I typically can’t stand to look at? The dreaded and oh-so-annoying Hollywood enemy, the paparazzi. If you happen to spot a picture of ‘Heroes‘ and ‘Star Trek’ star Zachary Quinto watching U2′s concert in Los Angeles last week and thought, “who would snap such an unwelcome photo of a celebrity?” I will man up and admit that it was me.

Yes, the man who has no desire to ever be a celebrity hound, nonchalantly uploaded a couple photos of Quinto and an unnamed “guy pal” to Twitter. And that photo wound up hitting the web before the concert was out.
At first I felt bad about it and wondered if Quinto would check his iPhone — which he was using to take photos of the concert — and see a picture of his backside then realize it was me that took it. That would have been an awkward glance back.
Seeing how I already invaded Qunito’s privacy with a Twitpic or two, I won’t reveal whether or not I saw him partaking in a little something that was getting passed around by the surrounding concertgoers. I still need to get the smell out of my jacket.
On a side note, congratulations to U2 for making YouTube history with the most watched streaming event on the video hosting website. As always, the concert was amazing — especially live and in person.
