NYLON editor-in-chief Marvin Scott Jarrett calls an editors' meeting and asks us, "Who's the most famous person in America?"
We yell "Lindsay!" and "Mary Kate!" and "Beyonce" all at once.
"No guys," he grins, "More famous. Like, Paris Hilton."
And the whole room was silent. September 2008:
Luke Crisell flies to Los Angeles to interview Paris Hilton. For three days straight. She turns out to be very different from what we thought. And awesome on the photo shoot, run by Marvin and filmed by Bridget Palardy for NYLON TV.October 2008:
We can finally share these photos with you, along with some early musings from the mouth of Paris:What you'd expect.
“My dogs need to live nicely too! They have a chandelier and moldings and a bed and furniture and air conditioning in their doghouse. The closet at the top of the stairs, that’s where I keep their clothes.”What you'd never expect.
“Every time I meet someone – someone who’s honest – they’ll always say, ‘I didn’t like you before.’ But when they meet me, they always think I’m the sweetest, most down-to-earth girl.”What's up with Benji.
"Am I going to get married? I don’t know when, but I would. It’s strange! But it works out, because Nicole [Richie] and I are like sisters.”And yes, she gets it.
“I’m smart and I know what’s going on. I can laugh at myself; I’m in on the joke. I know what you guys think of me, and I’m going to play into it and make you laugh at the same time.”
