Paris Hilton: Beautiful Blond American Bombshell
Since moving to America, I have learned many things about the beautiful and kind people of this country. I have learned that by and large they would rather help you succeed than to see you fail. For the most part they would rather work hard than accept charity or live on the dole. Some may have a fear of foreigners in general but they still see you as an individual and for the most part you are received as you present yourself. But one thing they do not seem to agree on is Paris Hilton.
Paris Whitney Hilton is famous but mostly this fame is the result of being what is called a "socialite". In simpler terms this means she is famous for being famous. It is true she has made movies and is an actress. It is true she has recorded music and is a pop star. It is true that she is a model and fashion designer and has her own line of fragrances and perfumes. But these things she has done because of her fame, not vice versa.
Some people say she has had these opportunities only because of her wealth. You most likely know her name from the hotels her family owns. Some people feel this has given her an unfair advantage over others less fortunate and do not like her. I have not really been able to ascertain why the people who feel this way have such animosity for Paris Hilton, but she certainly achieves some strong reactions. It does not seem to me that any of us can determine how our life will be before being born, so why fault Paris for being born into wealth?
Of course, on the other hand, the majority of the people love and adore her. She is well known not only for her entertainments, but also for her charity work with organizations such as the Make-a-Wish Foundation and the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles. A lot of her charity work involves children, but she also is an animal activist and helps the homeless as well as supporting the fight against breast cancer. In truth, many realize she is a beautiful person both inside and outside, but some still refuse to see.
I do not suppose it can be denied that Paris Hilton started life with advantages that many of us do not possess. But how can this be a reason to dislike someone? Is the more important factor not how she utilizes the advantages she has been given. Many people in her situation would simply sit back and enjoy their family's money without trying to succeed in any accomplishments of their own and turn a blind eye to those less fortunate. But Paris has both worked for her success and given to those in need.
It is enjoyable for some to denigrate Paris Hilton's acting career, but the movies I have seen her in have been quite acceptable if not classics. A horror film called House of Wax was generally well received but some people attacked Paris' acting abilities. I thought she did an admirable job. I have also seen her in a movie called The Hottie and the Nottie in which she did a wonderful job. Her other films I have not seen.
As far as her CD, I have only heard a couple of songs that have been played in clubs I have frequented but they were both good songs. They were good to dance to and Paris does an excellent job on the vocals. I believe one song was called "Turn It Up" but I do not remember the other song title. I believe noted record producer and DJ Paul Oakenfold remixed the single for Paris.
In conclusion, I cannot see why some Americans are so strongly against Paris Hilton. But then I suppose some cannot see why others are the biggest fans of hers. I would say I fall somewhere near the middle. I do not wait with baited breath for her next news item to appear, but I also am willing to give the projects she is involved in a chance and very happy to see when she is involved in her community and tries to help the less fortunate.
Certainly it must be hard for anyone to say she is unattractive with a straight face. Her beauty is indisputable by any reasonable thinking man. In the end, we must all make up our own minds and Paris Hilton's popularity will rise or fall depending on we the people, to say with an American twist. I will put a poll below and let the hubbers decide! Hoozah!
