WHEN MUSIC POPS, WE TURN IT UP

Australia’s Channel 7 owned Paris Hilton!

Australia’s Channel 7 owned Paris Hilton!

There’s something about living in Australia that apparently just erodes your ability to give a crap, because Aussie reporter Edwina Bartholomew clearly couldn’t give one if she wanted to. Paris Hilton was down in Oz as part of her new career of following around people who are actually famous and talented she’s dating, and decided to stop in at Channel 7 for an interview. Edwina decided to ask Paris about her waning “fame” to her face (side note: HA!) when Paris’ camp decided to step in and tell her that if they aired that question, they would effectively ban the channel from interviewing Paris ever again.

Here’s where they went wrong. First off, Paris is at this point, clinging to the tatters of her former glory. The only reason anyone even remembers to write about her is because they recall being needled by her inexplicable success and fortune for five years, and at this point are really only writing to reminisce on how annoying she is. If she really wants press coverage this badly, she might as well just go on a tour where she reminds everyone how awful she was and still is. She can call it the “Hey, wasn’t I just the worst?” tour, and Nicole Richie can open for her! Oh, wait, Nicole actually has a career now. Whoops. My bad.
