Paris' Shooting "Stars"

6/26/2006 6:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Perhaps Paris really does know best, and the gods, as she sings, really are crazy. "Stars Are Blind," the first musical effort from the lodging heiress, is burning up the music world, dominating airplay at the biggest urban radio stations and all over the online music firmament, prompting widespread downloading and, in one highly amusing case, spontaneous drive-dancing.

In just its fourth week of release, the reggae-dusted "Stars" is already the most requested song at Los Angeles' KIIS-FM, from which it was first leaked on Ryan Seacrest's show, and at New York's Z100, typically the highest-rated pop station in the city.  It was the most downloaded song at Yahoo! Music and number six at the Apple iTunes Music Store, putting it ahead of such acts as Rihanna and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

What's more, the video for the song – in which Paris does an somewhat tepid and highly parody-ready impression of Helena Christensen in Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game," has become an Internet phenomenon, garnering more than a million and a half plays on YouTube and millions more on MTV.com. 

Having boldly ventured into the worlds of fashion, fragrance, film, television, and, now, music, what artistic lands could possibly be left for this multi-hyphenate phenom to conquer?  Someone might want to tell newly minted Poet Laureat Ted Kooser to start looking for a new gig...

Don't HATE people!!!! We ALL would do anything to be in her shoes (maybe a smaller size though...i don't think I could handle a 14???) Anyways, We all would love to get the attention she gets, fashion props (even though some are questionable), and the money she has to take the vacations..... otherwise WE wouldn't be on here reading and writing about her!!! Actually, I'm waiting to cross paths with her just so I can slap her senseless and shake her saying," WAKE UP YOU DUMBASS! YOUR THE BUTT OF ALL JOKES!"

Thanks to Paris for providing us QUALITY songs instead of the same old boring songs of today's boring music. She might not be the best singer, but she has a good taste.

I hate to say it, but I knew all along her crap will sell. Jessica and Ashlee both have multi platinum selling albums, why not Paris? The shit that is the excuse for music these days..........

Much to my annoyance, I found myself liking this song (throws up in mouth a little bit). Then I realized why..... it sounds oddly similar to UB40's Kingston Town. Hmmm.....

Who likes the badly produced (no instrumental? just repetitive chords?) "Stars Are Blind"? The same people who buy Hillary Duff records, Britney Spears records, Nick Lache records etc...young girls and gays. Why do they like Paris? She is everything they wish they were. She is no more skanky then most other girls of her age, c'mon people. Why even call her skanky at all? It's because she's a girl, if she was a guy she would be looked up to for being a party animal. People who don't know her personally but are disgusted by her are just sexist or rednecks.

There is nothing special about Paris Hilton. She's not educated, she's not talented...and her beauty is 80% money. This woman is living proof that money opens doors.
