Paris Whitney Hilton has packed in many different careers in her short life. She has been, or is, a model, actress, writer, singer, and businesswoman. She is also a celebrity socialite and daughter of the Hilton Hotel family. Hilton has also spent time in prison for driving violations. Reports are she will appear in the book of Guinness World Records as the world's "Most Overrated Celebrity".
Hilton was born with a silver spoon in her mouth in New York City in 1981. She grew up moving between exclusive homes in the States and France. She attended elite schools but wasn’t so strong academically. She was expelled from one school for violating its rules. She did not go to university but decided to be famous instead.
When she was 19, Paris signed with a leading modelling agency. She was immediately very successful. She appeared in numerous high-profile advertising campaigns for some of the world’s top brands. She also developed a reputation for being New York’s top “party girl”. She used her fame to launch her own perfumes, which are all best sellers.
Hilton branched out into acting and has appeared in several movies and TV shows. Her biggest role was as a co-star in the reality series ‘The Simple Life’. In 2004, she founded Heiress Records and released her debut album, which sold poorly. Hilton has also written two best-selling books. Her plans are to continue promoting herself to become even more famous.
