Paris Hilton interviewed about social media and technology
Interviewed by AdWeek
Adweek: What’s the first information you consume when you wake up in the morning?
Paris Hilton: I usually read all my work emails and then I check Instagram and Snapchat. Then I go to Flipboard to read all of my news. It’s the easiest way to have everything that interests me in one app.
Who do you follow on social media?
I’ve always loved Rihanna’s Instagram. She always has really great posts. She’s beautiful. I love her attitude and her style. Also Britney Spears. And on Vine, I like Brittany Furlan. I think she’s really funny.
Are you a big Vine user?
I was when it first came out, but now there are so many different social media sites that it’s hard to keep up with all of them. I like Snapchat the best now. I like their stories much better than the Instagram ones. I think they’re more creative and fun.
What are your favorite apps?
I really like Musical.ly, and I like Live.ly, which is kind of like Facebook Live. I love Postmates. You can order anything you want. The Cute CUT Pro app makes it really easy to make your own movies. And I love ordering things on Etsy and Dolls Kill, which has really cute clothes.
You just finished a summer DJ residency in Ibiza. Are there any apps or blogs you use to find new music for your shows?
I try to get to every single big music festival and check out friends’ shows so I can see what the crowd is into, and I always Shazam songs during the shows. I listen to a lot of new artists on SoundCloud and Beatport, or if I’m going to a new country where I haven’t played before, I’ll tweet out, “Hey guys, I’m coming to this place, what are your favorite songs right now?” so I can find out what my fans there are into.
