Falling Star: Paris Hilton
I don't even like referring to Paris Hilton as a "Star," especially since her only "talent" is mugging for paparazzi and creating a grainy, and honestly, a quite boring sex tape with some random dude.
But Paris Hilton has managed to make headlines again, thanks to this little remark:
"Gay guys are the horniest people in the world. They're disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS...I would be so scared if I was a gay guy. You'll like, die of AIDS," said Hilton.
What the WHAT?!?!
At first I thought, maybe this was some sort of sick joke. Or maybe it was part of another terrible movie script she was acting out (see, "House of Wax.") But to everyone's horror, it was actually Hilton herself saying this in a recorded conversation to a friend in a NYC taxi cab. Was it wrong for the cabbie to record her private conversation and release it to a gossip website? Sure. But could it be possible that Hilton could be so ignorant to offend and degrade the only group of people that may actually still find her slightly relevant?
Doing massive damange control, both Hilton and her PR flack released statements to GLAAD about how gay people are "the strongest and most inspiring people" she knows. And that Hilton's comments were taken out of context, and the conversation was "edited."
Regardless, Hilton should just stick to what she does best: spending her parents billions, and really, doing nothing at all.
