Paris: Poor Penmanship but an Ace Artiste!

6/30/2007 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Last week, lady blog Jezebel had Paris Hilton's jail-time note examined by expert handwriting analyst Sheila Kurtz. According to Kurtz, Paris' scrawl style reveals a, uh, troubled soul. "Rarely do we see an independent adult write with such diminished capacity of comprehension," said Kurtz. So she's no Soren Kierkegaard." Harsh!


This week, the gals at Jezebel took Paris' artistic merits to task, and had Paris' drawing for TMZ's own Harvey Levin analyzed by acclaimed contemporary art expert James Romberger. His findings? She's a regular Frida Kahlo! Paging Mary Boone!



Says Romberger: [Paris] linework demands a new genre. Poignant and unintentionally surreal, heavily-laden with encoded symbology. He calls her work, "post-modernist-ish insider/outsider Art."

And that's art with a capital "A"!

What do you expect from a non-grad? Her interview with Larry King is being called the worst interview of all time.

What's wrong with the letter other than it looks like a 5 y.o. wrote it! She is a 26 y.o. H.S. drop out. She probably had a guard help her with the spelling!

She gave Larry a b.j. just before the interview. Notice he didn't confront her for lying about drugs and "reading the bible"?

Standards are badly needed.    

Good lord, TMZ is reporting on Paris' handwriting analysis, and doodle analysis. Next - doodie analysis. Surely after a Friday night something else happened concerning someone else. Anyway, who is this Paris person?

Lol.

YUCK    

Paris AND Kathy Hilton are both from trash roots. Both have NO shame, it seems. But I really do think it must bother them. All of NYC society (Bev Hills too!) laughs at Kathy Richards Hilton (daughter of trailer-woman Big Kathy)

I seriously don't understand why people can not leave her alone. Especially TMZ since she wrote them this letter. How about you not criticize it, and Thank her for how many stories she has given you.

I'm not a Paris fan, however trying to compare her to Kierkegaard is like comparing blood to air. She didn't have spell check in jail. 99% of writers have editors and lovely word perfect to set them straight. The grammar police are always on the look out with their pocket protectors and hand helds hoping and praying they can catch someone using then instead of than or grammer instead of grammar. For the people who live in the real world who compare trust funds and implants and the car they drive, the geek set, those who spend most their days online trying to dream up something witty to say judging anyone who might confuse past with present tense really do need to go outdoors and let the sun shine on their cheeks a little. Take a long deep breath of fresh air, exhale and run back inside their nice cozy corner office and bitch back at me because I'm using a run on sentence. Give her hell for the illegal stuff she does. Kick her ass for the wrong she does but in the meantime, let's chase the Grammar Police and beat them to death with their multicolor Sharpies. Who needs 'em?
