Paris: Publicity Personified.

Everyone's talking about it. Everyone's complaining that everyone else is talking about it. But sadly, no one can stop talking about it too. The radio, the television, the web, the paper have only one thing on their minds - Paris Hilton. Yeah, hate her or love her, you just can't get rid of her.

My client and me were speaking over dinner at Silver Diner's about this today. He mentioned something that I felt was very true. In the USA, there is nothing like bad publicity. Publicity, in whatever form, good or bad, is publicity itself and that's what people, or rather celebrities here thrive upon. You take the Britneys, the Lohans, the Hiltons. They all have the same thing in common. Whether they do it on purpose or not is another story though.

Now after getting out of jail, Paris had her first TV interview yesterday. On CNN. Larry King Live. I caught a few titbits of the show in between the Copa America match between Brazil-Mexico (was keeping an eye out for Anderson of course). Now, here's a honest confession. Call me a sucker but I'm generally for Paris usually. True, she does the craziest and stupidest things, but give her some credit too for still managing to keep her chin up when the public throw every possible insult in her face. You need some pretty thick skin for that. (Or do you? No brains would suffice! :P) Did anyone watch what she was made to go through during the 2007 MTV Movie Awards that took place this month? If not, go to youTube, and search for "paris 2007 mtv" and you'll get to see what I'm talking about.

Anyway, the interview went off pretty well, with Larry (in his usual monotonously dead sounding voice) questioning her about many things ranging from what she thought of the public's view of her to the time she'd spent in jail. She answered them pretty maturely I felt (call me a sucker again) though it was plain simple that she just spoke some pre-prepared good lines, maybe wanting to make a change in front of everyone? She spoke about how the timeout she had in solitary confinement made her think about her life and God. And that she finally realized that she wanted to do something good with her life and do good to people around her. So Larry then asked her what was her favorite Bible passage. And she goes..."umm..ummmmmmmmm........I don't have a favorite actually." And so there I jumped up and said "Hah! She's bluffing!", but then she flashed that sweet innocent apologetic smile of hers, so I forgave her instantly. =)

On 'The Tonight Show' today, Mr. Leno just couldn't stop making enough fun of her. He cracked a good one when he said, "After the one-hour interview with Larry, Paris said she wished she was back in solitary confinement again." Haha. But whatever, there is not going to be an end to this it seems. It's gonna go on and on. That's Paris. She's famous for being famous. Simple.

And me thinks that's hot. ;)

Pssst..tomorrow is June 29th. Think Phone. Think Apple :)
