EDITORIAL: Famous for being famous?
Editorial by i_have_ADD



Paris Hilton? Like, seriously, who the f*ck is Paris Hilton? Heir to some hoteliers fortune, she comes out here and fools around with a D-grade popstar wannabe, gets ditzy at the Melbourne Cup, some old tapes surface of her doing the nasty with Shannan Dohertys husband, and the entire country is in awe. Im serious, is her job literally to fly around the world, get drunk (and whatever else), and create controversy in her wake?

I guess the reason Im so dumbfounded is that Ms Hilton represents a certain type of celebrity, and its one that I have a rather intense dislike of - people who are famous simply for being famous. At least with an actor or musician theres (usually) some element of ability there, some reason as to why theyre an icon. But... the Hilton sisters?

The news item on the Sydney Morning Herald website regarding Paris Hiltons much talked about sex video received more traffic than anything else on the site, and thats on a credible news website. Its little wonder with interest like that why tabloid newspapers are so popular overseas.

The ultimate irony is that this is all weve spoken about in the office all week, and Im just as obsessed as everyone else... But I want to know why?!

Readers were probably searching endlesly for the "download here" link...

I Didn't know who they were in Melbourne for the Cup weekend (i don't watch much TV though).
had to google search, found similar article on their over exposure here.

and just admit it I_have_ADD...

writing an editorial with the words "Paris" "Hilton" and "Sex tape" is just a cheap way to get more visitors to the site from search engines, innit!!!

I'll admit it - I'm fascinated,nay, jealous. Not with the look of these two shapeless skanks. Leathery blonde isn't my idea of beauty.
But travelling the world just to party? That is my idea of fun.
I'm green.

But if the price is the free circulation of clear shots of ur misshapen flaps and ur coked-out amatuer video, I guess I'm pretty happy with just the local weekends.

I was reading an article on the lovely Paris and it was something about her having to go wee at Melbourne Cup and security roped off the toilys. A woman was still in there and on her way out Paris was blotting her lippy on a towel. Paris throws the towel at the woman and says "here, keep this, it'll make you millions one day"...

Seriously man, I mean seriously.

No offence I_H_A but was this column really worth it? She receives more air time as it is.

From the lyrical booty masters...

Everywhere I go, I see the same hoe.

There are so many girls out there that want to be like her, that it's scary. Then again, there's plenty of chumps who want to tour the grounds of the Paris Hilton as well.

Someone said you'd like to live a life like hers? Why? Everything is easy and carefree. However, wouldn't it be better to have worked and earned it, as opposed to be 'lucky' and born into it.

What has she really achieved?

totally agree, I had no idea who they were until I saw a photo on the sydney morning herald. They are overexposed people with to much money for nothing. Although I would love to live like that.

Sounds like you have a bit of envy there... if anything, I feel sorry for these people more than anything. Its like the royal family (and the Hilton sisters are the equivilent I guess): they get hounded by people simply because of their name. How do you know they are talentless? Have they ever really been given the opporuntity to prove themselves? Has anyone actually given them the time to really be themselves? to grow into matgure adults? Paris and Nikki Hilton have no clue what it is like to suffer, to sacrifice (like any other talented individual working their way up in the world) to strive... and its not their fault. They have grown up in a world of extreme luxury and been brainwashed into believing that the world is theirs for the taking. Where people want them for their money, their wealth, their lifestyle, their name and certianly not for themselves.

And why not go for a supposed D Grade Pop Star wannabe? Millsy is likely to be a very down to earth guy who know where he comes from and doesnt make any claims of superiority - thats how he appears to me anyway. Perhaps Paris saw the down to earth character that is applicable to the majority of Australians and just went for it. And why not?

I think you should get of your high horse and start being considerate of the other people who inhabit this earth. Maybe they dont really care about us, but have they been given the opportunity to do so? Im not saying "Poor little rich girls..." Im saying try to put it into perspective. There are many ways of looking at things, sometimes you have to see it through the actual viewers eyes is all.

haha.

Personally, I love the Hiltons.

I just can't get enough of them ... theres just something so wonderfully trashy and cheap about them - its quite fascinating. They're famous for being famous - which is quite an achievement in itself :p

And yay for Millsy. He knows his time is up, so why not make the most of it and pork one of the Hiltons? Why would anyone begrudge him for that opportunity?

Its not like I worship or admire these people. Of course they have no talent, and of course they've contributed nothing with their celebrity status. They affirm the idea that looks and money can get you far, which is something I hate. However like someone said; its like a train wreck, you don't want to look but you just can't help it.

Some people just have that natural ability to attract attention, some have a wealthy family, all have been blessed with beauty.

If you ask me, I think the reason that she did whatever with Shannon Doherty's husband (I don't know the story), if that is the story at all, it was probably Shannon Doherty's doing.

She probably wanted to walk in in the middle so she could participate, or watch. I think it had something to do with that program Charmed.

Who was holding the camera anyway?

I was reading some column about the girls and it basically said how the girls came here without any claims or pretence of doing anything more than coming here for a good time & to promote the Spring racing carnival and add a little glitz and glamour to the event. Clearly thats what they're paid for, and thats what they did , and they did it well.....theirin lies they're talent.

Sure its only cos they're rich and hot....but thats no different to some guy doing extremely well in business cos he was born with a high IQ. You work with wat uve got.

It's an interesting point but I'd have to disagree

Jealousy's a curse, people.

Of course you all would love to be rich and famous, have a neat little shaven fanny, and never have to do fuck all except for hang out with other Scene-Queens at celebrity shin-digs and drink expensive flutes of bubbly, whilst millions of blokes toss-off to pictures of you over the internet.

And who says she hasnt done anything?

I'll have you know that she's an accomplished actress, and a film I saw with her in it only last week is already one of my all-time favourites.

Two thumbs up!
