2006 was certainly a memorable, yet rollercoaster, year for Paris Hilton. The reality star made headlines when she burst onto the music scene with her debut album and hit single, “Stars are Blind,” and found herself in some legal trouble, but it was her unlikely friendship with a certain pop star that was instant tabloid fodder.
Hilton became fast friends with Britney Spears, along with Lindsay Lohan. Following Brit’s publicized divorce from Kevin Federline in 2006, they hit LA’s hottest parties. Following several weeks of club-hopping, their friendship seemed to have fizzled out, but that doesn’t mean Hilton hasn’t always been a fan of Spears.
“I love Britney,” Hilton said to MTV News before adding that Spears’ latest single, “Work Bitch” is “really cute.” “I’ve loved her. I think she’s so beautiful. I love her music and I’m so proud of her.”
And while she may be all about Britney, it doesn’t mean she hasn’t been noticing what Spears’ recent collaborator Miley Cyrus.
“I think that she’s having fun,” Hilton said of the star of the October 2 documentary, “Miley: The Movement.” “I think she doesn’t worry about what anyone thinks. She’s having fun. I think she looks sexy. Whatever, she can do what she wants.”
The heiress is now gearing up to revive her own music career. She recently wrapped a month-long DJ residency in Ibiza and next week is set to release her single and video for “Good Time,” her first off her upcoming album and as a member of the Cash Money family.
“When she came and played her music for me, I was taken away, I was excited,” Cash Money CEO Birdman said during an appearance on “RapFix Live.” “I was surprised, I didn’t know what to expect when I first heard it, but when I heard it, I was like it was something I’d love to work with.”
