Paris Hilton – Stars Are Blind

I have to admit that I was wrong and I should never judge a book by its night vision sex tape.

I’ve made lots of fun of Paris Hilton, along with everyone else not named Paris Hilton, but I’m proud of her for trying to find her niche in the world. Sure no one really gave a rat’s ass about her until her infamous sex tape, but instead of letting that totally un-masturbationable video label her as the “Hotel Heiress Ho,” she’s gone out and tried to make something of herself.

The more that I think about it, the more I realize that Paris Hilton is just like me….Well, my college career at least.

I spent six years in college and during that time I switched my major about four times. First, it was Accounting, then Journalism, then Athletic Training, then American Studies, and then I finally ended up majoring in English. This is very similar to Paris Hilton’s life. First, she was a spoiled rich brat, then a “fashion model,” then an “actress,” then an “author,” and now she’s a “singer.”

Oh, but the similarities between Paris Hilton and my college career don’t end there. Paris failed horribly in the movie House of Wax and I failed horribly in Accounting 201, Math 100, Anatomy 301, Anatomy Lab 301, and Russian 101. Sure she won the 2005 Worst Supporting Actress Razzie for her role in the movie, but I won probation for my 1.5 GPA during my sophomore year.

Paris and I have also both been in relationships with people we totally regret being with. For her, it’s Rick Salomon, who stars in the sex tape with her. For me, it’s a girl I’m going to nickname “The Bass Mouth Kisser” because kissing her was much like French kissing a bass fish, except messier.

Since Paris and I seem to be kindred spirits, I had to pick up the first single from her debut album off of the iTunes Music Store. I also did it because I want to support her and her dream to be something other than that motionless short-haired blond chick in that sex tape.

Don’t believe I bought it? Check my iPod’s screen on the left.

So can Paris sing?

Well with today’s technology, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and even tone deaf people like myself can sound good. This same technology made Paris sort of sound like Gwen Stefani in this song. As for the lyrics, I’m pretty sure she didn’t write them herself, because if you’ve read any of her books or the essay portion of her GED exam, you’ll know that writing isn’t her strong point.

Although, I have to admit that its beat kind of makes me want to shake my big booty. Actually, its reggae beat kind of makes me want to skank.

Now just to clarify, when I say “skank,” I’m not talking about Paris Hilton, I’m talking about dancing to a reggae or ska beat.

The reggae beat and lyrics make for an okay Paris Hilton song, but I think the same reggae beat and lyrics would make an awesome UB40 song.

Item: Paris Hilton – Stars Are Blind
Price: 99 cents
Purchased at: iTunes Music Store
Rating: 4 out of 10
Pros: It has the structure of a song: verse one, chorus, verse two, chorus, verse three, chorus. Kind of makes me want to skank. Lyrics and reggae beat would make for an awesome UB40 song. Paris’ attempts to make her niche in the world.
Cons: Money can buy you a record deal, or more specifically, a record label so that you can give yourself a record deal. Technology can make Paris sound like Gwen Stefani. Excessive use of a breathy voice, Paris Hilton’s un-masturbationable sex tape. My college career. “The Bass Mouth Kisser.”

  1. Hey Marvo, “The Bass Mouth Kisser” is one of your funniest lines in ages. Thanks for suffering through Paris Hilton’s musical masterpiece to bring us another great review.

  2. I am so proud of you for knowing the verb-meaning of the word skank! Did you ever go Ska Night at the Factory? Or at Pink’s?

  3. Why must you say Gwen Stefani and Paris in the same sentence..twice?

    I’m so opposed to giving that ‘woman” any amount of money. I need to liisten to this one. T.G.F.I? Thank God for internet

  4. Man. Skanking is hard. I tried it at a punk concert my friends dragged me to, but my hipster ears were woefully unused to ska’s beat.

  5. On an unrelated topic, I think you should add a “Random Review” button.
    That would” blow the competition away”

  6. you really put that on your ipod? i bet you just did some photoshop magic and created a screen so we’d believe you really listened to it. b/c if you really listened to it, you would’ve “house of waxed” eloquently on her artistry, her craft, her total amazingness like whoa.

  7. Chuck – Don’t you mean “musical masterpiece?”

    Domokun – Don’t forget the four percent tax.

    AmberLB – I have no idea where the Factory is or Pink’s, but let me tell you, I am a horrible skanker.

    Damasta – At least you don’t secretly like David Hasselhoff.

    skibs – Paris should just give her music away for free. Although I don’t know how many takers she’ll get.

    Gia on Guam – That’s what the voices in my head tell me too and your comment on my other blog. :-)

    Larry – Yeah, it’s so much easier to mosh.

    Anonymous – But does it make you want to rip your ears off.

    Rylan – I don’t know if I want to blow the competition away. Sound kind of messy.

    coolpillows – I totally lack the Photoshop skillz to do that, but I have listened to it on my iPod about 20 times now.

    Webmiztris – But what if I end up being a talentless, unattractive, spoiled rich brat? The comparisons will be hard to avoid.

  8. Like skibs, I am vehemently opposed to giving that spoiled rich bitch any of my money.

    It pains me greatly every time that I go on vacation with my boyfriend’s parents that we sometimes stay at a Hilton.

  9. Toni – I think she only made about 3 cents with my purchase of her song off of the iTunes Music Store. Artists don’t get much money from record companies.

  10. Q: Why do rich, spoiled idiots get to publish crappy books while others have to work their asses off to get publishers to spell their last name right?
    A: The same reason untalented people get money for taking their clothes off
    That said, you could have just gotten the music video off the internet for free.

  11. The similarities to Gwen Stephani are obvious, but at one point in the music video, she starts mimicking Jessica Simpson. Surprisingly good at it.

  12. Sophia – I could’ve gotten it for free, but I seem to enjoy the pain of knowing I just wasted 99 cents.
