Paris Hilton "Enjoys Publicity"

With all the haters out to get Paris Hilton, it'll probably come as a relief for her to learn she's got someone in her corner -- Rod Stewart.

On today's episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Stewart talks to the talk show host about the socialite, who just so happens to be good friends with his daughter Kimberly.

"I've always found Paris to be extremely polite, well-mannered. She is when she's around me and did not do a bad version "If you think I'm sexy" as it happens," says Rod.

While she's a constant target of the paparazzi, Rod believes she knows what she's doing, "She enjoys the publicity. I think she'll grew out of it I think too when she finds the right guy in her life. I think she'll get everything in perspective and leave the press alone and the press will leave her alone hopefully."

The press leave Paris alone? We'd love to see that day.
