We'll Always Have Paris [Hilton]


We'll always have Paris - Style - Times Online: "We meet again on a balcony at the Sanderson hotel, surrounded by fashion shrubbery, with [Paris] Hilton, 25, in a floor-length ball gown and outsize white-rimmed sunglasses. My first question is, what happened? “I know, right?” she giggles. “Things got, huge.” And you let them? “Yes, I did.” But why? “Because there’s nobody in the world like me,” she says, smiling lazily. “I think every decade has an iconic blonde — like Marilyn Monroe or Princess Diana — and right now, I’m that icon.”

For better or worse, she is right. Last year, the author Naomi Wolf was quoted as saying Hilton is “an empty signifier you can project anything onto” — but she was wrong. To fans and haters alike, Hilton signifies the base desires of the age: money, sex and low body fat."

This article is actually worth a look. Thanks to Todd Mason for the link.

I'm sure that Paris Hilton's a nice young lady, but no one fills out an icon like Marilyn fills out an icon.

Well, a guy my age just about has to agree. Marilyn was one of a kind. Maybe Paris is, too, however. Just a different kind.

Bill, if you think I intend to read anything about her, think again. She may believe what she says about herself but she is wrong.

She's a vapid useless parasite. If her family didn't have zillions she'd be just another ugly slut.

I think you should give us your real opinion, Jeff. No need to hold back.

I don't know, being a husband to an angry feminist and all, if this is really a valid comment, but I never thought Paris Hilton good-looking in any respect. (Yeah, well, I think I've said that to my wife and she just nodded: "Yeah, yeah." (I mean that Paris is not good-looking to me, not my wife, who beats Paris hands down).)
