I agree, even though it is an unpopular opinion (I also posted it in this thread). What makes everyone so better that they are able to judge her so harshly? It is natural, I am not above that or anything, I just wonder why. Maybe there is not an answer. I know that reaction is a normal part of being human since people naturally talk and try to align their belief system with the current situation at hand.

Most people will never know fame and fortune, but there are lots of stories out there of those who do and many end in tragedy and are unfortunate. Many don't understand that every action has a consequence or they learn it with maturity, everyone has life moments that causes them to grow and mature at different rates. This is the same in normal individuals as well; the only issue is there is more publicity among the famous. I am betting there is some sort of normal bell curve out there for the standard population of the rest of us and also for the rich and famous in the US and they are about the same. Some born into fame and fortune turn out wonderful, but we don't hear much about those. Like the news, mainly we hear about the bad things, and we keep watching day after day.
And by this point I would hope people know magazines and newspapers lie, they aren't the most reputable sources for information, and most exist purely for entertainment value.
All IMO of course.

She can walk away from her celebrity status any time she wants. But I guess that wouldn't be too good for her bank balance.

HELLO.....she is a Hilton heiress, if anything she pays for the celebrity status...........She would probably save more money then most of us will ever see in our lives if she did hide out somewhere! You can't choose to be famous, it's not a career, people create the celebrity. You can be famous for many different reasons. Why is she famous ........simply for being a celebrity. Why is she a celebrity....because shes famous. There is some undeniable attraction that the public has with her, unless she does something really retarded like marry Kevin Federline and have more of his children, shes going to keep intriguing the public who is more like an audience at this point .

Actually, Paris Hilton has stated several times publicly and unashamedly that she has done exactly what you say people can't do. She has courted the press, she has done everything possible to become as famous as she can, and she has openly and happily admitted to deliberately doing so. She doesn't `pay' for her celebrity status. She is paid to be a celebrity. She has also stated several times that the money she makes is her own money and nothing to do with her inheritance, and that mostly she makes her money by showing up to parties / events and charging a massive fee. Which she gets.

The one thing she has always been very upfront and honest about is how she has used the media to create `Paris Hilton'. She has called herself a `marketing genius' and she hired a publicist after the sex tape scandal to get it brought into an earlier page in her local newspaper. She is very clever at getting attention focused on her. She's a brand, and she's done it deliberately, and she's very proud of it. So now, she cannot turn around and bite the hand that feeds her. It's a shame, but publicity and fame is all she's ever wanted, and she can't just turn it off now that it's inconvenient. She should be able to, but that's not how it works in her world.

Here are some quotes from Paris:

`I've made all my money on my own without my family and I work very hard'

`I don't want to be known as the granddaughter of the Hiltons. I want to be known as Paris.'

`I’m an actress, a brand, a businesswoman. I’m all kinds of stuff.'

`There's nobody in the world like me. I think every decade has an iconic blonde -- like Marilyn Monroe or Princess Diana -- and right now, I'm that icon.

`Not every heiress is famous. Or fun. There are a lot of boring heiresses out there'

`I don't think there's ever been anyone like me that's lasted. And I'm going to keep lasting.'

`I’m like an American princess.'

You can not court the press if the press is not interested........the press seeks out what the public wants to know about......She taunts and uses the situation at hand, but she certainly didn't create it from being a "marketing genius"!
`I’m an actress, a brand, a businesswoman. I’m all kinds of stuff.'
Is she an actress, NO. Does she run, own, or has established a business? NO. Heck she probably has no idea where and what her money is invested. As far as all kinds of stuff, yes this is true. She is very successful and doing "STUFF".......

That's true. What started it was her `sex scandal'. After that, as I said, she hired a publicist to have the story brought forward in newspapers, so she would get more attention. This is true. One incident starts everything - and this incident started her courtship of fame. But every, single, day after that she cultivated, courted and designed her image. She could be called an actress, she's been in movies, she could be called a businesswoman - being Paris is her business. She also has a line of perfume and other accessories. I personally don't think she's an actress or a singer, even if she thinks she is! BUT, she has courted fame from the first sniff of it, and she cannot now turn around and say `leave me alone I don't want people to see this'. Again, you cannot have your cake and eat it, too. Paris Hilton made her own bed - the fame, the celebrity, the popularity. She must now lie in that bed, even though it has backfired on her.

Being a Hilton heiress wouldn't have gotten her more than a few lines in the papers in today's celebrity climate. If she put her head down and studied, got a proper job or did charity work she wouldn't be famous. People might know her name and this kind of thing might draw a small amount of media coverage but Paris Hilton isn't famous for being an heiress. She's famous for partying, getting herself photographed as much as possible, carrying around small dogs in bags and generally courting celebrity. And that's her choice. She can turn her back on that any time she chooses.

Being a Hilton heiress is why she has the money. I meant literally pays for her celebrity status......always have to look her best, never wear the same outfit twice, be able to hire lawyers whenever you can since you never know when an ex boyfriend is going to release a sex video....and so on She only makes money from her celebrity status at this point because she is exploited. Her talent is making the best of being exploited and making some money from it. It costs money to do all that

Again, though, she has exploited herself, and the media have lapped it up. It's a two-way street. She has done it deliberately, knowingly, and proudly admits to it. To argue that would be to argue with Paris herself. She's the one that's come out and said that's exactly what she does - on purpose, with full knowledge of the ramifications - all of which up until now have been positive for her.

She did not exploit herself until she already was any way..

I think it looks like we'll have to agree to disagree! I am basing my opinions on things Paris herself has said, so until she says something different, my mind isn't changing!
post #253 of 254
I've been watching this conversation with interest. Mainly interest in trying to explain away why Paris didn't do this to herself...

Maybe y'all don't remember this, as it was quite a few years ago, but when Paris started getting any kind of publicity it was ALWAYS Paris and Nikki. They went to the most popular clubs where the young, rich and famous hung out in New York - and where the paparazzi always hung out too. They were friends with other notables, including the children of stars (who are notable simply because of who their parents are), like Nichole Ritchie and Kim Stewart, as well as the young notable stars who partied in New York. Pretty soon, Paris and Nikki were making headlines themselves, and they were getting cover shots on their own.

At some point, Nikki decided that wasn't the path she wanted to take. And while she is still notable in the tabloids when she does something notable, she isn't headlines. Paris is. Because, as Sarah has said and provided quotes for, Paris decided to court the media. I don't know about you, but I've never seen pics of her shunning the camera.

So, I'm sorry, but I don't feel sorry for the tabloid princess. She really did do it to herself. If it was just about being a Hilton, young and pretty, then Nikki would be more famous than Paris (I sure think she's a LOT prettier than Paris), and if it were just about being young and rich, there are a lot of those who don't get any press.

What a great post Heidi

A great example of someone who is an heiress, young, rich and beautiful - and OUT of the press - is Ivanka Trump. I tell you, I read an interview with that girl and she has a mind like a steel trap, ambition to boot and moral fibre that is notably absent from most other girls of her generation and privilege. She certainly didn't get it from her father, either. She's a remarkable young woman and if the theory that just because you're an heiress means you'll get press was true, she'd be all over the press as well. And she's not, because she has more important things to do with her life. As does Nikki Hilton and the other Hilton siblings (of which there are two brothers - nobody knows about them now, do they?).

No, Paris has brought this on herself, with active and involved pursuit of the media and their attention, and unfortunately cannot not now bite the hand that fed her for so long. To do that would be something the paparazzi would never forgive her for, and her fame and everything she's worked for would go down the toilet. She knows that - so it'll be interesting to see how she handles things once she's out.
