Paris Hilton Blasts Pink for Her ‘Not-at-All-Subtle’ Parody in the ‘Stupid Girls’ Video
Paris Hilton has said from the beginning that her sex tape—filmed when she was 19 and her boyfriend Rick Solomon was 33, by the way—had been leaked and distributed without her consent. But that didn't stop Pink from making fun of it in the video for her 2006 song “Stupid Girls.” (The song title is context enough, right?) Well, in a passage from her new book, Paris: The Memoir, Hilton is now publicly taking the singer to task for mocking what essentially boils down to analog revenge porn.
After describing how Solomon (allegedly) pressured her into filming the sexual encounter and then profited from the tape's release, Hilton's book details the relentless public shaming that followed. Pink's song, with lyrics belittling “porno paparazzi girls” and a music video that included a scene parodying the grainy sex tape, is just one particularly poignant example.
“The whole video is a not-at-all-subtle send-up of ‘porno paparazzi girls’ in general and, specifically, me, in a parody of my infamous sex tape,” Hilton writes, per BuzzFeed. “When everyone was buzzing about a sex tape of a certain teenage girl from a soon-to-be hit TV show—a girl who said emphatically over and over that she did not want the tape out there—the takeaway was ‘Stupid Girl.’”
Paris Hilton was hardly the only woman Pink took not-at-all-subtle shots at in the “Stupid Girls” video, which also mocked Jessica Simpson, Lindsay Lohan, and Mary-Kate Olsen. In February, Pink told UK's Mirror, “I have been canceled so many times. I get death threats daily, and the shit people say…. If you have a vagina and you have opinions, that’s really tough for some people.” She added, a bit ironically, “I have had times where it has really hurt my feelings, but most of the time I couldn’t give a shit because I know if that person was standing in front of me they would never say that. Never.”
