Launching her memoir, Paris: The Memoirlast Tuesday (14), paris hilton seems to have several unfinished business with many people, including the singer pink. After recalling one of the biggest controversies of the 2000s, where the socialite had her sex-tape made with her then-boyfriend, Rick Salomonaged 19, without her consent, Paris was used as satire and became a reference for jokes in various media.
The socialite says that one of the ones that upset her the most was Pink’s clip, released in 2006, just three years after the scandal. in the clip of “Stupid Girls”, the singer makes a clear criticism of the standards of beauty and behavior of the time and how difficult it was to fit into this world of celebrities and socialites. In one of the references used in the production, a staging of a sex-tape being recorded in positions very similar to the video sold by Salomondeeply hurt Paris Hilton.
According to Hollywood Reporterthe actress described the pressure she had had to record the sex-tape at the time and when she watched Pink’s video, she felt ashamed and without support from a “generous, evolved and progressive” woman who admired and “who always sang about outcasts and girls with ambition, but wished I didn’t see it in me”. Despite the criticism, Paris Hilton says that there was never any kind of rivalry between the two.
The world thinks of me as a sex symbol, and I’m here for that, because ‘symbol’ literally means ‘icon,'” she continues. “But when people saw that sex tape, they didn’t say ‘icon,’ they said ‘slut.’ They said ‘whore’. And they weren’t ashamed. (…) The entire video is an unsubtle upload of ‘paparazzi porn girls’ in general, and me specifically, in a parody of my infamous sex tape”.
