Overrated? Paris Hilton? That's crazy. Just ask Paris Hilton herself.
When asked about her debut album and about people hearing it for the first time, Hilton was honest as always.
"People go crazy," she said in an interview in the September issue of Blender, on newsstands Tuesday. "They love it. Everyone's like, `Who is this?' I don't tell. Because I don't want someone putting their phone up and recording it and making a ring tone off of it.
"I think when people don't know it's me, they won't judge it. But if they know it's me, then they'll be like, `Ugh.' They won't even dance."
Not because the CD, "Paris," sucks. Of course not. Just because, well, they don't feel like dancing. The album is set for release Tuesday and Hilton's breathy, reggae-infused single, "Stars Are Blind," has climbed to the top of Billboard's dance music chart.
"I, like, cry, when I listen to it, it's so good," Paris said.
Listeners, according to one critic, may have a similar, tear-laden reaction. Meanwhile, Hilton posed for Blender's cover and inside pages wearing lingerie; in one photo, she wears a pink bra, black fishnet stockings and gold platform heels.
"I'm always playing a character," she tells the magazine. "I don't act like myself in public, because I don't really want to show everyone the real me. Because I have no privacy whatsoever, the only thing I have is who I really am."
Gosh. That really makes you think. About how we could sick Osama bin Laden on Hilton.
