I admit it. I'm a sucker for the celebrity gossip. I buy US Weekly, dammit.
And if you're anything like me, you're sitting there in profound and utter incredulousness that Paris Hilton is now being used as a PR device to reinvigorate sagging careers. Case in point: Britney Spears, who's been seen around town lately cavorting with America's favorite socialite. Like they're best friends all of a sudden.
I don't get it either. Britney apparently "looks up to" Paris Hilton. Um, WHAT?
A Socialite's Life sums it up beautifully:
I pray pray pray this is but the latest stage in some bored hoax that the Three Skanks of the Apocalypse have concocted to fight off ennui.I couldn't have said it better myself. Britney. Honey. What the hell? Do you do everything your publicist tells you to?
