    The origin of Paris Hilton’s baby voice

    Reported by US Magazine

    It was the high-pitched whine heard around the world and the voice that first declared “That’s hot” — but it turns out that Paris Hilton’s signature baby voice was put on as part of the celebutante’s plan to dominate pop culture.

    “[The baby voice] developed when I was like really young, when I was a baby or a kid,” Hilton, now 34, told Broadly. “If I wanted to get something from my dad, I’d be like, ‘Dad, I really want this!'”

    It worked first when she wanted new pets, but when Hilton Hotels billionaire Richard Hilton caught wind of his daughter’s tricks, he forced her to buy her own animals with her allowance. Eventually, she and her younger sister, Nicky Hilton, owned a handful of chinchillas, rats, mice, hamsters, dogs, and even a goat.

    “I don’t think [our parents] found out [about the goat]. [The dollhouse] was [so] far away from the main house that my parents never went down there,” Nicky told Broadly of the mini-home with running water and electricity.

    But the positive effect of the baby voice wasn’t lost on Paris.

    “I learned that from a young age, if my boyfriend got mad at me and I was a teenager, I’d [say in a baby voice], ‘I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to.’ Then [boys would] just forgive you,” Paris said. “When I was developing the character for The Simple Life, I just was like, ‘This is your voice for the show, do it all the time.’ I think if you’re actually like that in real life, it’s, like, beyond. But if you’re in on the joke, you know what you’re doing, you’re aware of it, and you’re doing it purposefully, I think it’s actually smart.”

    Developing her voice for the 2003 reality show wasn’t Paris’ only creative liberty. Simple Life producer Nicole Vorias also recalled to Broadly, “[Paris] knew what she was doing. Remember that line when she was like, ‘What’s Walmart?’ She knew what Walmart was. She [created the line] herself and made it something that she knew [would] be like a watercooler [moment].”

    These days, the DJ finds herself slipping into the voice when she’s with her friends, which they happily call her out on.

    “I always talk normal, but if I start doing it they’ll be like, ‘Sit down, baby voice,'” Paris said. “People who don’t know me probably assume I’m like the biggest airhead on earth.”

    “Airhead” is not a term that should be used for the mogul, who by 2014 has sold $2 billion worth of perfume.

    “The people who don’t get it are the ones who would say that because they only saw The Simple Life or an interview where I talk like a baby that I’m just this spoiled airhead,” Paris noted. “Anyone who’d actually look into it would actually know it’s the opposite: You don’t get this far and build something like this by being a dumb blonde.”

    Interview: Paris Hilton writing a book, producing a new show and launching “The Paris Selfie Light”

    Reported by Yahoo! Style

    Is Paris Hilton still famous?

    The short answer is “yes.” The medium answer is “hell yes.” And the long answer is that when Hilton arrived at Jeremy Scott’s dinner on Wednesday night in Miami, the California native was alone for all of two seconds before being swarmed by the suntanned masses. Jaded fashion kids begged for selfies. Party photographers pulled their trigger fingers. And for a good 60 minutes, the entire back patio of Miami’s Surf Lodge pop-up breathed in desperate sync with the blond business mogul. (Estimated net worth: $100 million.)

    We spoke with Hilton—now 34, still so fit and so blonde—just before her Art Basel DJ gig at the W Hotel in Miami Beach.

    Yahoo Style: Easy question first—where did you get your dress?

    Paris Hilton: It’s by For Love & Lemons. I love the crystals on it, and the color, but now in this heat with this dress, I’m melting. I hate it when people say “I’m going to die!” because obviously, they won’t! But I seriously feel that way now.

    Are you at Art Basel Miami Beach to DJ, or do you actually collect art?

    Oh no, I’m here to collect, absolutely. I love art. I have homes all over the world, so I want to find great pieces for them. I’m specifically looking for pieces for my home in Ibiza and for my new place in Switzerland.

    Wait, you live in Switzerland?

    I’ve been living there for about seven months now. And it’s great to go to a fair where you have so many artists in one place who are all so talented. It makes the process [of buying art] so much simpler.

    What kinds of pieces have you bought?

    In Ibiza, we have a lot of Damien Hirst and Andy Warhol pieces.

    There’s an incredible Damien Hirst piece, The Incomplete Truth, in the fair this year.

    I haven’t seen it yet, because I’m going to Basel tomorrow! But I’ve already heard about that piece, and I can’t wait to see it in person. Damien Hirst is so incredible because he’s talented but he’s also a really cool guy.

    Shia Labeouf and James Franco have created “performance art pieces” that revolve around their celebrity. Do you consider yourself the original Hollywood conceptual artist?

    Maybe! The Simple Life was the first of its kind, and it was so new to Nicole [Richie] and I; it was a whole new genre, I guess.

    Can I ask you about Kim Kardashian?

    Sure.

    She seems to be the newest version of that idea. Are you two still friends?

    Yeah! Kim and I, we’ve known each other since we were literally two years old, so we’re family. Nothing can change that.

    Do you think selfies are art?

    They can be, absolutely! Self portraits are certainly very respected in the art world…

    What’s your secret to the best selfie?

    I’m so glad you asked. It’s this. [Showing us her phone case.] I made it in China. It’s called “The Paris Selfie Light.” They’re coming out soon, because flash always looks really bad. If you’re in the dark, or you’re at a club, so often your camera just won’t focus on your face, or you have no control over the angle. So I would find myself always buying external light at photo equipment places. So I thought, “This is silly. Why not just put the lights directly on your phone case, surrounding your phone, almost like a vanity light?”

    When can people get it?

    In two months on ParisHilton.com. Because really it’s all about lighting. And finding your angles and practicing.

    And after the light launches, what’s next for you?

    I just released my 19th fragrance. It’s called Paris Hilton Limited Edition. I’m opening my own hotels around the world. I have seventeen product lines. I’m writing a new book and producing a new show. I’m a workaholic. I truly don’t stop. And my new single, High Off My Love, is number three on Billboard Charts. So I’m really excited about that.

    Will you play Stars Are Blind during your upcoming DJ gig? It’s kind of a brilliant song…

    I still love that song! I’m so glad other people do, too. It’s a classic! In its own way. [Laughing.]

    Oh wait—what’s the best selfie filter on Instagram?

    Valencia. Valencia can elevate a lot of selfie damage. Filter it out.

    Globe-trotting model, business magnate and DJ Paris Hilton was as busy as ever this year, hosting her Foam & Diamonds party (an all-night dance rager that, yes, ends with the audience soaked in foam) in Ibiza and debuting a new fragrance line. In honor of our Fandemonium issue, dedicated to exploring what makes fans go crazy and photos and stories go viral, PAPER styled Paris like you’ve never seen her before and talked to her about her Internet habits.

    What is the craziest thing you’ve done all year?

    I lived in Ibiza from May to September and performed every Saturday night at my Foam & Diamonds party at Amnesia. I also toured throughout the week, playing all around the world.

    What is something no one knows about you?

    I’m actually really shy.

    What is the most amazing thing about being you?

    I feel blessed to be in a position where I can make a change for those less fortunate or give a voice to causes that need it.

    What is the most stressful thing about being you?

    The most stressful thing about being me is that I have such a crazy schedule with all my business endeavors that I constantly have to be on a plane flying around the world. I always have major jet lag.

    When was the last time you were afraid?

    When I was trapped in an elevator in China a few weeks ago. It was so claustrophobic that I could hardly breathe.

    Read the rest of the interview here.
