Simple Truths

“IF you see pictures of me out I’m being paid. When I turn up at an event it is work.”

Given that Paris Hilton, for it is she, would turn up to the opening of a fridge door, she is in danger of becoming a workaholic.

Speaking in the Sun, Paris goes on to say that her job is no stroll in the park in a pair of diamante knickers. Paris is no natural exhibitionist. She has to work at it.

“People don’t think I am shy,” says Paris, “but I am.” She’s right. People do not think she is shy, at least not those among us who have looked up the word in the dictionary and found it to mean: “avoiding observation.”

But then Paris might be right. Shy can mean “easily startled”, and who has not seen the open-mouthed look on Paris’s face when she was spotted in a bedroom with her boyfriend?

And having set that record straight, Paris moves on to reality TV. Paris stars in a TV show called The Simple Life, in which she is filmed doing simple things, like breathing, wearing knickers and working in a fast food restaurant.

“Simple Life is a reality show and people might assume it’s real,” says Paris. And they might. But it is not. “It’s a fake,” she says.

And she goes on: “All reality TV shows are fake basically. When you have a camera on you, you are not going to act yourself.”

So who is the vapid blonde we see on TV? “Before I started the show,” says Paris shyly, “I thought I’d make a character like the movies Legally Blonde and Clueless mixed together, with a rich girl all-in-one.

“Even my voice is different and the way I dress is different from me in real life. It’s a character I like to play.”

And that is encouraging. You see, Paris plans to be a singing sensation, and has recorded an album of what she hopes will be popular songs.

Anyone who has heard Paris speak (the TV Paris) might suppose her singing voice to be a cross between Alvin the Chipmunk and Geri Halliwell.
That her voice is put on can only bode well. Unless, of course, it disguises something worse. But then she can always distract us from it. She can always show us her knickers…
