In 2003, a sex tape featuring Paris Hilton and then-boyfriend Rick Salomon was leaked online without her consent.
Paris, who has recently tried to distance herself from the racist and anti-gay comments of her past, has spoken out about her traumatic experiences in a recently published book. Paris: Memoirs.
In the book, Paris, who was 19 at the time, revealed that she was pressured by Rick, who was 33 at the time, to shoot the video.
Paris claimed that despite being very “uncomfortable” with the idea, she eventually gave in and used alcohol and Qualude to relax. No, Quaaludes helped, but I did it, I have to own it, I knew what he wanted and I followed it. ‘, she wrote.
“He told me that if I didn’t, he could easily find someone to do it. It was the worst thing I could think of. Play adult games.” ‘ she adds.
A year after the tape leaked, Rick distributed the footage himself and made a huge profit.
Paris wrote in her memoirs: Clearly more valuable than my privacy. my dignity. my future. Shame, loss and extreme fear overwhelmed me. ”
At the time, Paris publicly hinted that the tape was released without her consent, stating, “I never thought these things would be public.” In response, Rick sued her and her family for defamation of her character. Paris later countered him for releasing the tape and won the settlement.
And one of the most famous Parisian disgraces was the artist Pink.
Pink, now 43, openly made light of Paris’ leaked tape in her 2006 song “Stupid Girls.”
In the song’s blatant disrespect for other women, Pink parodies sex tapes and lashes out at “porn paparazzi girls” with blonde hair and push-up bras.
“I’m so glad I never fit in/That’s never me,” she sings later.
In 2017, Pink revealed that Paris actually confronted her in a video.
‘Paris was mad at me,’ she revealed See what happens live with Andy Cohen“She said, ‘You know, I’m not stupid. I’m just playing like an idiot.'” And I was like, “That’s kind of my point.” …I’m going, nice to meet you.”
And now Paris has called out Pink once again — this time publicly.
In her memoir, Paris recalled her reaction to Pink’s music video, writing that the singer felt “shame” over the leaked sex tape.
“Pink sang about ‘Outcasts and Girls with Ambitions.’ That’s what I want to see. But she chose not to see it in me,” she wrote.
“The world thinks I’m a sex symbol, and that’s why I’m here because ‘symbol’ literally means ‘icon,'” she continues. “But when people saw that sex tape of her, they didn’t say ‘icon’, they said ‘slut.’ They said ‘whore.’ And they weren’t shy about it. ”
“The whole video isn’t exactly a subtle close-up of ‘Porn Paparazzi Girls’ in general, or my infamous sex tape parody in particular,” she adds.
Paris further wonders why the takeaway from all of Pink was so important, given her repeated clarification that the tape was leaked without her consent.
“When everyone was talking about a sex tape of a certain teenage girl from an instant hit TV show — the girl who repeatedly said she didn’t want the tape out — the point was, ‘Silly girl. ‘,” she writes.
Interestingly, Pink has recently been accused by multiple internet users of not only the lyrics and music video for “Stupid Girls”, but also her fame for belittling other women.
Pink famously mocked the likes of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Jessica Simpson in the opening performance of her song “Most Girls” at the 2001 AMAs. A world that validates me.
Pink’s habit of shaming other women became apparent after she brought Christina’s blow-up doll to the stage every night in 2004. try this Tour and simulated sex on it.
Looking back at footage from Pink’s tour now, fans called her use of a blow-up doll a “strange attempt to humiliate” Christina and denounced her “pathetic” behavior.
