Paris Hilton is one “rich white woman” in the pages of Harper’s Bazaar magazine where she opens up about her huge empire and shying away from the reality television star title.
“I want to be known as a businesswoman. I don’t want to be known as a reality TV star; I don’t like the way that sounds,” Hilton tells Harper’s Bazaar. As for her party girl past, she says, “I have really grown past that. Now I mostly focus on my empire and my brand, rather than everything else that comes with the reality star kind of life.”
I peep shade in these words. But Lady Hilton, let’s not forget how you got your start. *sips*
“When I moved to New York as a teenager I would just party all the time, but now people think I am actually smart because I have parlayed that into a very lucrative business,” she says continues. “With partying, no one had ever been paid to go to a party. I was the first one to kind of invent that in Las Vegas at 20 years old. Back in the day, a DJ would maybe get $200 and they would be hidden in a DJ booth. Now they are headliners, making millions of dollars—the whole attraction is them. I saw that coming before it was actually happening.”
“Nowadays it’s so much easier for anybody to become something. These kids could literally be on their iPhone from their bedroom and film a video or take a picture and become viral sensations. Back then, we didn’t have anything. We were just getting MySpace,” Hilton, 35, says. “There was no Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat.”
Or, you could just put out a sex tape. Someone’s forgetting that part of the story…
“Every dollar I have ever made, I have made myself,” she adds. “Yes, I feel very lucky to have come from a privileged family, but I have done it all on my own.”
All jokes aside, Lady Hilton is most certainly a trendsetter. Kim Kardashian should cut her a check….
