Paris Hilton is Finally(?) Releasing New Music
There are two kinds of people in this world: Those who still can't help dancing when Paris Hilton‘s “Stars Are Blind” comes on, and those who are just lying to themselves. And if you fit into that first category, you're going to be thrilled with this piece of news. It's official: Paris is coming out with new music for the first time in more than 10 years.
During an interview with Time, Paris — who's been working as a professional DJ — revealed that she's already working on her second album, and that this time around, fans can expect something a little different from her. That makes sense; she's 36 now, she's wiser, she has different taste in music, especially after working in the club scene.
Paris said that her album will be “a whole new sound,” and Time added that she's being influenced by genres like deep house, techno-pop, and electro-pop. It's not too surprising that she's staying in the pop neighborhood, but there's huge potential here for something awesome.
Something else interesting that could influence Paris's new music? How she wants to be remembered. Spoiler alert: It's nothing like the Paris Hilton caricature that we've known in pop culture, especially the version of her that was everywhere in the early 2000s. She's looking for a different kind of notoriety.
“I want to be remembered for so much more,” she said. “People are so mean. And they don’t know me. I get so misjudged. Just because my last name is Hilton does not mean that I’m some stuck-up brat.”
Unfortunately, that means that The Simple Life, in all its entertaining reality TV glory, is probably dead forever. (RIP.) But that doesn't have to be a bad thing. Grown-up Paris might be even better, and it sounds like she's fully prepared to become a serious artist. After all, the Time interview did reveal that she's been working 250 days a year, sometimes until four in the morning, and that she'd do it all for free if she had to. That's a real passion for music, and there's no way that won't translate into something great when she puts it together in an album.
There's no word on when we can expect the heiress's new music, but hopefully, it'll be soon. We can't wait to hear what she has in store… and hopefully, it's an album full of bops just like “Stars Are Blind” was.
And now, just because, here's an opportunity to listen to one of your favorite songs from the early aughts:
