Getty See Paris Hilton's Massive Engagement Ring "I literally wanted to die at some points," Hilton says while discussing non-consensual release of sex tape in Paris Hilton is taking social media to the next level: The former reality star, DJ and entrepreneur told The Hollywood Reporter she's actually "a huge tech geek" who is "obsessed with video games, VR," and she's got a very big project up her sleeve.
View Story "I'm working with a company right now and we're about to launch a Paris Hilton virtual reality world, which is basically going to be the next social media universe where people from all around the world can come meet, can come hang out," she said. I'm taking it to the next level. I've always been ahead of my time and now that I think about it, I've always loved being a pioneer. The film explores how her career as a pop culture icon, mostly just for being Paris Hilton after the success of Fox reality show "The Simple Life," has influenced today's current crop of "influencers" on social media and launched a billion-dollar business empire.
She also reiterated her dumb blonde persona was just a character. It felt like I've lost part of my soul and been talked about in such cruel and mean ways. I literally wanted to die at some points. I was like, 'I just don't want to live,'" she says in the documentary about her. I didn't want to be known as that I would never be who I could have been. I was just being myself and creating a brand on my own without any of these tools.
I created that genre of celebrity. Now kids can be in their bedroom with an iPhone and build a brand and persona and I think that's awesome. It's a whole new world and I love it. It feels good to be a part of something so huge. When asked if she wishes social media was around as a teen socialite, she said no. When I was a teenager in New York, it was so much fun going out.
No one was on their phone. No one was taking pictures or doing any of that. We were just there to literally have a good time. So I don't think it would have been as fun because people would have been on their phones the whole time.
I'm obsessed with him. I saw he had commented on someone else's post, which said, 'I need to come to Ibiza [for Hilton's DJ residency at club Amnesia], but I can't find a hotel.
I saved up enough money for a ticket. I can't afford a hotel, so I'm just gonna stay on the bench at the airport,'" Hilton recalled. We had the best time. I just love everything about her," Hilton said. She's just gorgeous inside and out. Thank God I have an amazing team capturing all the moments. It's a job in itself, but I actually do all my social media myself," she said. I know a lot of celebrities I talk to, they tell me they don't even go on it.
I love what I do. I love staying in contact with my fans. I love keeping everyone updated. I love sharing my life. I can't wait to have a baby one day and put them in cute little Snapchat filters," she added.
