‘The World According to Paris’

Paris sez: Fame is like sex, you’ll never be the same
sex sells, crime pays, but not without regrets

Paris Hilton used to be a somewhat respectable ex Catholic school girl (she went to the same exclusive religious prep as Lady Gaga – have they got something to answer for!) with a pedigree and a rich Greek boyfriend. Then her sex tape came out – leaked by her ‘co star Rick Salomon back in 2003 (though it seems like yesterday)and after that the rest is history. Her boyfriend dumped the hot tamale like a hot potato because as he said, his Greek parents said that the sex girl was out. Her mother wasn’t to pleased either. Even though Kathy had been an aspiring actress in her day, and even appeared on an episode of the Rockford Files – unless that was Paris’ actress aunt & Kathy’s sister; when she heard about her daughter getting publicly exposed she broke down in tears. It didn’t do much for Paris state of mind either; she didn’t leave the house for three months and when she did it was to go to therapy!

gossip’s golden girl

Sometimes when life hands you lemon the best you can do is make lemonade. So Paris rode to the occasion, and then she rode the occasion for all it was worth. She not only cashed in on celebrity but quickly began to ‘market her brand’. Currently she’s managing 17 of those brands, which constitute what Piers Morgan in the above video called her empire (he told Tyra Banks she had one of those too, so I think it’s what the old bugger says to all the young women). Although Paris won’t talk money (‘ask me about something that doesn’t matter, like religion or politics‘), she does go onto say that she’s really proud about what she’s accomplished. She’s build up an image based empire build on fun and sexiness.

“the most embarrassing, humiliating thing”

Kim Kardashian have tried to use the sex tape tactic as a short cut to lucrative reality TV success. If Sarah Palin releases one in prep to her presidential run in 2012 you’ll know that the idea has not only caught ion but gone too far!). In fact Paris went on to address the whole issue in her Piers Morgan interview, and here’s a brief excerpt of what she had to say:

“This is not what I planned. I didn’t want to be known as that. “And now when people look at me they think that I’m something I’m not just because of one incident one night with someone who I was in love with.

“People assume ‘Oh, she’s a slut’ because of one thing that happened to me and it’s hard because I’ll have to live with that for the rest of my life and explain it to my children.

“And it’s something that’s changed my life forever and I’ll never be able to erase it.”

opportunity’s knockers!

Nowadays gals get plastic surgery just so they’ll be fit for their sex tape when opportunity knocks. So Paris has set something in motion, which is perhaps something else that she might feel ‘not proud of’. However like she says it’s not what she planned on. She kinda had it thrust upon her, so to speak. Now it’s something that she can’t take back. So fame and success are a little like getting screwed, only out in public where everyone can see! That’s an interesting little analogy that Paris has highlighted for our attention! So the moral of this cautionary tale might well be that if fame is like getting fucked then just say “no”, or at least wait a little while, until you’re a little older and better prepared to handle it – no matter how bad you want it now or how good an idea it seems before you know better!


BTW have you ever wondered what godless rituals celebrities practice in their spare time, what the government doesn’t want you to know about Roswell, or whether you might unknowingly be the victim of mind control (hint: if you have a tattoo then you might be)? Then head on over to our sister blog, Area 51! It’s the little blog that runs on tinfoil and solvent fumes!
