Baring it all. Paris Hilton didn’t hold back in her new book, discussing everything from her time in a restrictive boarding school to her decision to have an abortion in her early 20s.
In Paris: The Memoir — which hit shelves on Tuesday, March 14 — the 42-year-old DJ also opened up about the sex tape that helped make her famous in the early 2000s. The tape, filmed with her ex Rick Salomon, leaked in late 2003 and was shared without her consent.
“The world thinks of me as a sex symbol, and I’m here for that, because ‘symbol’ literally means ‘icon,'” she wrote. “But when people saw that sex tape, they didn’t say ‘icon,’ they said ‘slut.’ They said ‘whore.’ And they weren’t shy about it.”
Pink later parodied the sex tape in her 2006 “Stupid Girls” music video, which also poked fun at Jessica Simpson‘s performance in The Dukes of Hazzard. Hilton said she doesn’t hold a grudge the Grammy winner, 43, but she was hurt at the time by the clip.
“The whole video is a not-at-all-subtle send-up of ‘porno paparazzi girls’ in general and, specifically, me, in a parody of my infamous sex tape,” the Paris in Love alum wrote, noting that the tape was “released and monetized against” her will. “Pink sang about ‘outcasts and girls with ambition’ and said, ‘That’s what I wanna see.’ But she chose not to see it in me.”
Hilton went on to clarify that she’s not “mad” at Pink now, praising her as “brilliant” and a “great” mother. “There’s no Pink-Paris feud,” the “Stars Are Blind” singer continued. “That’s not a thing. I have the attention span of a gnat, which means I suck at holding grudges. Anyway, anger doesn’t help; honesty does. So, I’m being honest right now.”
The “Trouble” singer recently made headlines for claiming that it wasn’t “fun to make” the 2001 “Lady Marmalade” music video with Christina Aguilera. “Not everybody is supposed to like each other and that’s OK,” Pink told CNN’s Chris Wallace in February. “And back then, our personalities did not mix at all and that was OK. Then we hugged it out, kissed it out and we have many times since.”
After being asked about the purported feud several times, Pink said she was “saddened and disappointed by the narrative” about her relationship with Aguilera, 42. “While some of the responsibility lays with me and my inability to lie, and my uncanny ability to overshare — my real disappointment lies in the fact that the art can never be the focus when you’re a woman,” she wrote via Instagram last month before adding a message for Aguilera. “To Christina — you know where we stand. Resolved. Onwards and upwards.”
