Paris Hilton As You've Never Seen Her Before

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.

What do you have planned for 2016?

Another very busy and productive year for both my music and my brand. I'll be continuing to tour as a DJ and create new music, as well as opening new stores and expanding my cosmetics line and products globally. I'm also opening another one of my real estate properties in the Philippines.

When you want to get attention, what do you do?

Get glammed and dressed up in a beautiful sparkly gown.

Have you ever used an online dating site?

No, I never have. I would be too scared of stalkers. I've heard some crazy stories from my friends!

Have you ever edited your Wikipedia page?

No, but I'd like to… Can you tell me how? ; )

What is the first website you check in the morning?

I go on to see what's going on in the world and then to my website to post updates on my blog. I also often go to Net-a-Porter for purchases. I love it.

What were the last three things you Googled?

1) Halloween costume ideas.

2) How to roast a chicken, to make a home-cooked meal for my boyfriend.

3) Old baby photos of myself for Throwback Thursday on Instagram.

Do you have a Google Alert for yourself?

No, I don't.

What was the last show you binge-watched?

Family Guy. It's one of my favorite shows. So hilarious!

Have you ever left a comment on a story about yourself?

No, I don't pay attention to the comments.

What did you eat for breakfast today?

French toast with bananas, Rice Krispies and a toasted bagel with cream cheese.

Which do you prefer: Netflix or Hulu?


Seamless or Delivery.Com?


What is your favorite social media account: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or something else?

Instagram @ParisHilton.

Did you have AOL? If so, what was your screen name?


What is the weirdest thing you've ever read about yourself online?

There have been so many weird lies written about me, but one of the weirdest was when they wrote that I dated Michael Jackson.

What is your favorite online animal?

I love any dogs, but especially the animated version of [Hilton's recently deceased Chihuahua] Tinkerbell for my upcoming video game!

What is the weirdest thing you've ever bought online?

I bought a "teacup pig." They said she would be no more than 15 pounds and she ended up being over 100.

Have you ever slid into someone's D/Ms?

No, but I will often respond to fans who D/M me.

Do you do your own social media?

Yes, definitely. I think it's important to talk to my fans myself. I do have a team member to help me post things I want, but I mostly Snapchat, tweet and post on Instagram myself. I love how social media means I can connect with my fans more personally and show them my life and hear their stories.
