Don't Forget To Have Angelina Autograph Your Visa Application

If you want to go visit Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and their rainbow children in Namibia OR if you hope to use your paparazzi skills to catch a post-delivery picture of the most publicized fetus in the world, you're going to have to get their permission first. Yes, you'll need their permission to enter the country. According to the Namibian embassy in Washington, D.C. (I didn't even know it existed until now), any journalist wishing to travel to the African republic to cover the birth of the celebrity couple's first biological child must include a letter of consent--from the celebrity couple. Chapter 3, Article 13 of the Namibian constitution states "no persons shall be subject to interference with the privacy of their homes." The provision was cited by the Namibian embassy as to why Pitt and Jolie essentially were being allowed to sign off on which journalists get visas and which don't. It's nice to see a country still upholding its constitution to the fullest extent. [source]
