this is from an interview that was posted earlier this month on ‘Pinstripe Mag’…
PM: Everyone is excited to hear more about your 3rd single ft Paris Hilton and titled, “Drunk Text” (Black Hole). Can you tell us the story about how you came to collaborate with Paris Hilton on this track?
MANUFACTURED SUPERSTARS (Shawn Sabo) : I grew-up with an amazing director named Johnny Lia, He’s done work with U2, Beyonce, 50 Cent, and SNL. Luckily he liked the idea. He heard the track and he immediately had some great ideas to do in the music video. We were really honored to work with him. Paris was a great team player and was in the video with us the entire time. It’s really an art piece that tells the story of a night out sending drunk text messages with us and Paris with some club scenes. It’s a great video to work on and we are really excited to share it with the public over the next couple of weeks.
MANUFACTURED SUPERSTARS (Brad Roulier) : Our friend was dating Paris. We started hanging-out with her and she came to see us DJ quite frequently…and he was kind of talking to us about, “Hey, you know Paris wants to do a song… you guys really should think about working with her on something,” and we had already had the concept of drunk texting. We wanted to make a different track than we did in the past, we wanted a tech-house track, we wanted a late night, three-in-the-morning type of track for our album…and drunk text was the concept around that because usually three, four in the morning when you’re listening to tech-house, most of us and our friends are usually drunk. We were inspired by an old house record called “Black Light Sleaze” by Peace Division. I always really liked that track, we used to DJ it Drai’s in Vegas. If we ever play there again I would like to start our set off at 125BPM, just really a good track to start our set out with late at night. We wrote the track with Lea Luna and thought that Paris Hilton will be perfect for the track. It’s just spoken words, no singing, just a girl telling her story of what happens throughout the night. That’s how we came-up with the concept of “Drunk Text.” I think it’s going to surprise a lot of people. It’s very underground for us and even more underground for Paris Hilton. We got some really cool remixes from Sander Kleinenberg. I think it’s going to catch people off-guard, it’s coming out real soon.
Just makes me even more curious as to what happened.

Lemmie guess. She broke up with Cy (their friend) and that was the end of it.

That doesn’t really fit though. The video was shot months after Cy and Paris broke up. That interview is from this month. So it was all good up until recently. I’d still like to see the video

The interview is sort of ambiguous as to whether the actual TRACK itself (was supposed to) feature Paris, or if Paris is just in the VIDEO. Hmm… Guess we’ll have to wait for the video to come out to see if she’s in it or not.

They say they wrote the track with Lea Luna and thought that Paris would be perfect for the track.
Guess we’ll have to wait and see if there is a release in the future.

Who knows right now but maybe Cy put recent pressure on his friends to drop Paris from it, maybe Lea Luna wanted to do it and had the advantage of having already helped write it, maybe they and Paris had a falling out or maybe there was no real intention to use Paris in the final song and were just using her to get the song more pre-release attention than it would have on it’s own.
It is disappointing when Paris gets connected with a new acting role (like The Other Guys – Paris being in that movie is the only thing that would have interested me about it) or a new song only for her contribution to not materialise (also when some acting roles turn out to be just small cameos). I love the creative side of Paris.

The song is really cool.
I would really love to listen to Paris version of it. Even thought I’m unsure if her voice would fit as well as Lea Luna’s.

I too would like to see the song and the video released with Paris in it.

This is great dialogue, very much our Paris! Remember Paris was ‘wild’, 1978/80. Would love to hear the Paris true story. Tell us P. It will make you ‘HUGE’. You have achieved so much. xoxo.

Just like ‘drunk’ ebaying. Most of the stuff is worth having. Loves It. Paris is a phenomenon, and causes this amazing behaviour. Goddess qualities! 2011.
