Why Is Paris Hilton So Famous? That question could also be asked about Kim kardashian. As a matter of fact, everything I say in this hub applies to Kim Kardashian.

I don't wanna knock Paris Hilton and I have nothing against her ( or Kim Kardashian) but why is she so famous? Is it because of her looks? Her talent? Because she's rich? Because she's sexy? Brilliant?

If it's her looks, is she better looking than a host of other female beauties like Halle Berry, Alicia Keys, Gwen Stafanie, Angelina Jollie, Katy Perry, etc., etc.?

If it's her talent, what talent? Can she really act, sing, dance, produce or direct?

Is she brilliant?

Someone may say it's because she's sexy, but is she more sexy than Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Jenna Jamison, Selma Hayek,, Christina Ricci, Halle Berry, or a slew of other attractive female celebrities who don't receive nearly the attention she does?

Is it because she's rich? Now we can all agree that she damn sure is rich! That's the thing that initially got her the media spotlight.

The Sex Tape

But there's another factor we're over looking in our quest for the answer to why she so famous: her infamous sex tape! (Kim's sex tape too!).

That tape really helped put her on the media map didn't it? A timely sex tape can really grab the public's attention and light up one's career just ask Pamela Anderson, Rob Lowe etc.

WorkThe Media

One talent Paris Hilton does seem to have, is the ability to work the media ( so does kim) and keep her image in the center of the public and media spotlight. The Media never met a celebrity it didn't like! And she certainly knows how to keep the guys attention doesn't she, fellas?

The Real Reason Paris And Kim Are So Famous

But the real reason Paris is so famous is.....You guessed it.....Us!

We, the public never met a celebrity, we didn't like either! For all of Paris' and Kim's, sexiness, beauty, "talent" and wealth, if we the public, weren't so fascinated with the rich and famous, would we even know her name (or Kim's)?

Some of us live vicariously through the lives of the rich and famous, wishing that we could live the lives they live and do the things they do. Some of us fantasize about being involved with them! Some of us love them, Some of us hate them, but they're the center of our attention! These factors are all part of the reason for Paris Hilton's and Kim Kardashian's celebrity status and why they're both so famous.

But isn't it a sad commentary on us, and our culture, that someone can become a media star and a pop culture icon, just because they're rich, beautiful or sexy? Not because of the kind of person they are, or what they've done for society, but just because they're rich, sexy or beautiful?
