Paris Hilton tells the UK Sunday Times that she “is carrying on the legacy of legendary blondes like Marilyn Monroe and Diana, Princess Of Wales, and has declared herself this decade’s ‘iconic blonde’. “
The heiress insists when she is seen out clubbing, it is field work for her roles, and that she is chip off the old Conrad Hilton block-a true businessperson to the core.
According to The Sunday Times, “There’s nobody in the world like me. I think every decade has an iconic blonde – like Marilyn Monroe or Princess Diana – and right now, I’m that icon. I read these stories about me starting fights and saying stupid stuff. I’ve become a cartoon.
“Nobody seems to get that how I am on The Simple Life is a character. I even know what a Wal-Mart is. I play dumb like Jessica Simpson plays dumb. But we know exactly what we’re doing. We’re smart blondes.”
Despite being caught on videotape on TMZ.com with billionaire heir Brandon Davis tee-hee-ing over Davis’ slanderous comments about Lindsay Lohan, and being plastered all over the internet in less than decorous poses, Hilton claims it was all for her art and commerce.
