DIE, Paris Hilton. Jihad on you!
Now here's what I want everyone who knows or has any kind of relationship with a child or a teenager to do. It requires that you step up and be responsible, and not be lazy with being proactive. Read this story: Paris Hilton praises her debut album. Read it as many times as it takes for you to be bathed in disgust, then sit down and show the young person in your life. Dissect everything about her, and declare in no unclear terms that this is not what one should strive to be. Explain that vanity is a fleeting thing and that substance is where it's at. Explain that viewing people like this as role models is an act of stupidity, period. Explain that her parents are just as bad if not worse for not only enabling these behaviors, but actively encouraging them. Explain that looking like/acting like/for all intents and purposes being a giant whore is effectively saying to the entire world at large that you're one of the most stupid, insignificant creatures on the planet. It's not sexy, it's not 'cool', it most definitely is not 'hot', it's not even interesting. Glorifcation and/or romanticism of people like this is completely disgusting and shows a complete lack of character.
The entirety of this and the culture of Paris Hilton cannot be destroyed, but the cult of Paris Hiltonites who think she's anything besides completely horrific must be stopped.
Of her album, she says, "I, like, cry, when I listen to it, it's so good."Oh my doG, please die.
"I'm always playing a character," she tells the magazine. "I don't talk like this really — like a baby. I don't act like myself in public, because I don't really want to show everyone the real me. Because I have no privacy whatsoever, the only thing I have is who I really am."
