The White House announced today that the Obama administration will be working with TMZ in order to spy on celebrities. This decision came after President Obama was watching his favorite television show, TMZ, and heard that TMZ was looking for guest paparazzi members or those who had information.

President Obama immediately scheduled a meeting with TMZ's lead editor and producer,Harvey Levin. The two discussed a few minor details and a 2-year contract with the US Military and TMZ over the use of drones was created.

The contract allows TMZ access to the drones in order to spy on celebrities. TMZ has already begun using the drones to their advantage; for example, a drone was used to spy on Tom Cruise during his Scientology church session, only to find out that Cruise was a robot.

Complications began after Taylor Swift, who was dating one of the drones, broke up with the drone. "This caused us to lose an important feed of information on Swift's day-to-day habits." said a TMZ spokesman.

Even more complications came about when the public began to notice TMZ's drone program after Taylor Swift wrote her breakup song, I Knew You Were Trouble , about the drone.

However, TMZ noted on their blog that they "are committed to the drone program, and have already scheduled a date with Swift and another drone. The public does not need to worry about the the lack of information on Swift; it is nothing more than a temporary setback."

Controversy is at the minimum; the Supreme Court ruled in a unanimous decision that the celebrity-drone program was constitutional.

Anti-drone activists have pledged support for the program. "We rather have the drones be used to spy on celebrities than to be used to blow up schools in the middle east" said Rory Seitz, a spokesman for United Citizens Against Drones

Other groups haven't been so accepting. The ACLU, Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the hacktivst group Anonymous have began retaliating against the program with the argument that the program violates the right to privacy and is a stepping-stone to allow drones to be used in order to spy on citizens.

The White House has begun a tabloid-blog on the White Houses' official website, whitehouse.gov.
