Paris Hilton talks about her second album

    Interviewer: What are your main passions, in terms of your music and your acting now? And how hard is it to balance a music career with an acting career? How does that new album reflect who you are at the moment?

    “It’s so much fun for me. I’m doing what I love to do. I live every day as if it’s my last, and just live life to the fullest. And with my brand, I can basically do whatever I want. And I always try to – no matter where I go, incorporate everything together, so if I have to promote a movie or my line or something, it’s just all incorporated together. I can do it all at once.”

    “Well, there’s a lot of songs on there. Some of the songs are actually on FlaghouseMedia.com, as well. I have a song called “Jailhouse Baby.” The song’s just about my life, and things that have happened. And I wrote every song on them, so it was a lot of fun just to show my fans and everyone, through music, about my life.”

    Paris Hilton had to pick and buy Amber Sweet’s clothes!

    Interviewer: “And I hear you contributed a lot to the costume wardrobe. Amber wears some pretty out-there ensembles…”

    “I was really inspired by Yves Saint Laurent and Vivienne Westwood and then David LaChapelle pictures and Courtney Love’s look. The movie was very low-budget, but I wanted to make sure I had great clothes so I brought, like, 10 suitcases full of amazing outfits.”

    Repo! director wants to do a sequel

    Interviewer: Would you do another one? I mean, the film does set it up for a sequel, I guess, if you really want to do – would you revisit this world?

    “Yes, 100 percent. In fact, I want to start a sequel next year. But again, everything – I’ll end my whole thing on a soapbox, which I love to get on. This movie is all about support from the Internet, and support from fans. This is not a movie where you’ll see billboards or bus stop ads or trailers on TV. It’s a movie that exists in a grass roots kind of a fashion. It exists when fans go and see it, and they go on message boards and talk about it. It exists when Dark Horizons posts a review about it and the thing which is so hard about this movie, but also exciting, is how polarizing the movie is. I got a half-star from Rolling Stone. And I got a four star from – you know, Washington Post. It’s ridiculous. I won, like, four out of four, and I’ll get a perfect score, and then the next person that watches it will say, “This is a fail. This is an F.” I think that – the trick is, right now, is spreading the word. Getting people out to the theatres November seventh, because, again, the more people that know about the movie, the more people that will talk about the movie – and the better chance that we have to see more movies like Repo. Because, again, it’s a weird, out there, crazy movie. And the only way to see more movies that are made like this is to show support when they’re actually released.”

    Repo! director is not a fan of Paris Hilton’s debut album

    Interviewer: Did you know she could sing as well as she does in this? She does sing beautifully in this, too.

    “Oh, yeah. I think she’s a great singer. And I think that – this may be a bad thing for me to say. But the reasons I didn’t like her album was – it was not her voice. It was the production. It was the songs she was singing. And I think that in this, we gave her some great material. I think the writers, Terrance and Darren, gave her some great material. And she knocked it out of the park with that great material.”

    My personal opinion: The songs on the debut album (at least Scott Scorch’s songs) are better than the songs on the Repo! soundtrack, but the Repo! songs are 10 times better than the songs we hear on the radio nowadays! Anyway, it’s not like we can compare the debut album with the Repo! CD. But both albums are great!

    Repo! director tells an anecdote about Paris Hilton

    Interviewer: Paris Hilton surprisingly impressed me. Why do you want to hire her in the first place?

    “No one knows Paris Hilton. I think that’s the biggest thing I can say about Paris Hilton. Is, everyone thinks they know her, because they read Perez Hilton or TMZ. That’s not who she is. And that’s who I thought she was, too. And shame on me for that. because I guess that when I went into this, everyone – I thought I knew who she was. And so she came into audition – it didn’t take much to impress me. Because she was completely the opposite of that. And I’ll give you a story – one of my favorite stories to tell about Paris. We were in the recording studio, and we were recording this album. And we all went outside. And there was maybe 50 people in the studio at any given time, from engineers to guitarists, to drummers. And we’d been there about six hours. And everyone went outside, to behind the studio. And people were having cigarettes and standing out there talking.”

    “Well, all of a sudden the paparazzi van pulls up, and the doors open up, and hundreds of snaps go off. Photographers snapping like crazy. Well, the next day, all over the Internet, it was, “Paris Hilton caught smoking dope in back alley.” Well, she wasn’t doing anything. She was sitting there talking to me. But again, what happens is, people log on-line, they go to their TMZ or their Perez Hiltons, or whatever gossip site, and that’s how it’s spun. And so they think – they put these pieces of the puzzle together, and they think that’s the person. That’s not the person at all. She is – the reason that she is where she is right now, is she’s a smart business woman. And no one gives her credit for that. And I think this movie shows that she’s a smart actress, too.”

    Repo! The Genetic Opera debuts at #21 on Weekend Box Office

    Repo! grossed $51,578 and positioned at #21 during the weekend Box Office.

    If it were released to 2,792 theaters, it could’ve potentially earned approximatively $20,000,000 like the new movie “Role Models,” which debuted at #2 on the Box Office.

    It is very shameful that this movie is only available in eight theaters with an almost total lack of serious promotion. It’s hard to believe!
