1. Definition - Study the definition.
As a native speaker of English and a person who really digs languages, I think that the coining of words is so cool. What is coining? That is when you make up a word and use it for the first time. I am pretty sure that Justin Timberlake coined this word, which is a combination of the words “stalker” and “paparazzi”. A member of the stalkerazzi is a photographer, who follows you around like a stalker. I’ve never heard it before. Very clever!
2. Use - Learn how the slang is used.
I guess since this is a new word, we will have to use our imaginations to talk about where it would be used. I think that famous people would use it because they are always being followed, or stalked, by photographers, or paparazzi. You might also use this if you were at a wedding or an event where the photographers followed you around.

””At the fashion show, the models were being followed closely by the stalkerazzi. They never got a free moment.”“

””Hey, look! It’s Michael Jackson! And there’s the stalkerazzi right behind him.”“
