"Who's Tony Blair?" asks Paris Hilton


After recently comparing herself to the likes of Princess Diana, Paris Hilton has screwed up publicly again. This time she was caught offguard by the daunting question of 'do you fancy Tony Blair?' by a GQ correspondent.

"Who's Tony Blair?" responded the blonde 25-year-old heiress.

Her knowledge regarding current events aside, she says "I've made, like, 200 million dollars (£107 million) in the last year, while J-Lo's only made 150 million dollars." Her brilliantly titled new single 'Stars are Blind' has now been released.

See all you need is looks to get famous im amazed this woman remembers how to breath half the time let alone walk and talk
  by: si182uk   08/04/2006 01:12 PM     
  looks to get famous?  
more like money.

"Who's Tony Blair?" i thought she said she was a "smart blonde" in the last story i read here. i wonder if tony was hurt she didnt remember his name after their one night stand. dont worry tony, she has trouble remembering her own name.

Stupid as the woman may be, she has a point here.

  I think it can be said....  
... her publicity agent MADE her millions for her. Hilton had already inherited a vast fortune- she just has to show up at the parties she has to go to and no need to be smart. She has people with brains working for her.

However, I thought the Princess Diana comments to be completely out-of-bounds... if she doesn't know who Blair is, then how can she deign to compare herself to someone like Diana- i doubt she even knows where England is on a map of the world.
  by: theironboard     08/04/2006 02:33 PM     
  I don't know whats worse  
The fact that she is a complete moron, or that people actually look up to her.

Damn celebrities almost have theocracy over this country and I've had enough of it. Time for our people to wake the hell up and get their priorities straight.
  by: Megaman1986   08/04/2006 03:26 PM     
  I like the fact you all thought she knew Tony Blai  
talk to her about people she is compared with like JLo etc... and she would know who you are talking about. It's irrelevant talking to her about politics, global issues etc.. probably she can't even remember the names of the countries that have the biggest "hiltons".
she is famous and sexy (for some, not me!) and that is her job in life, to be sexy and pose while people take photos and write her daft comments!
  by: DarkAngelJG     08/04/2006 03:56 PM     
  Seen the video for "Stars are Blind"  
She showed a lot more talent in that *other* video ...
  by: l´anglais     08/04/2006 04:00 PM     
  Stupid! Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!  
I swear she must be the idiot blonde in all those blonde jokes! *bangs head against wall*
  by: DesertRebel   08/04/2006 04:02 PM     
  well, she confirmed it  
stars like her are definatly blind and other things!
  by: DarkAngelJG     08/04/2006 04:24 PM     
I suppose she may know the Beckhams, or is it just the ranch she doesn't know who Tony Blair is, wtf was she doing for the past 5 years with all the wars? Ahh she's busy online, no wonder, but still wtf!

  by: bye     08/04/2006 05:35 PM     
I have no idea how guys find her attractive, I'd get bored looking at her for more than a minute!
  by: bye     08/04/2006 05:37 PM     
  She looks like a bird lady ... ugh.  
I personally don't find her very attractive. She always looks like she should be roosting.

And the comparison to Diana ... poor Diana, she must be rolling in her grave. Diana would at least had the sense to play a part in the world. Paris' main concern is getting to that Cocktail party in 'The Hills'.
  by: Daev     08/04/2006 05:44 PM     
  I think its a publicity ploy  
Like, "Wal-Mart, what's that? Do they, like, make walls there?"
  by: MmmMan     08/04/2006 06:28 PM     
Is he realy the little Chihuahua?? Dont know Tony either.
  by: kinko     08/04/2006 08:09 PM     
  Despite all your bickering,  
I guarantee Paris Hilton loves that there are people like all of you. Sitting around griping over how unimportant and stupid she is. You're not helping anything, just so you know.

Want to make someone go away? Stop talking about them.
  by: Dayron   08/04/2006 08:56 PM     
Its because breathing is a natural occurrence. If she had to remember to breath on her own, she'd fall flat on her face...
  by: cbuilding   08/04/2006 09:04 PM     
  @ hugo chavez  
Damn man! Don't be giving the republicans ideas.
Let them find another idiot on thier own.

  by: ke1n   08/05/2006 07:37 AM     
  I agree  
This isn't classed as news at offence to the reporter but shouldn't Paris Hilton be on a blacklist??? Noone cares what she says, wears, drinks, sings, acts etc etc ...just have a ban just on her please...who cares if that's's only Paris Hilton...AGAIN where is that moron who posted the sextape *hitting him each word I say* ''!'
  by: Mr-Anderson   08/05/2006 12:04 PM     
This story has recieved almost 2000 hits at time of this post compared to the 600 visits your only contribution to the site received.

Explain how this is NOT news? This is relevant commentary on modern culture... the influence of pop icons.

It's totally relevant, it's just not very important in the grand scheme of things. It's entertainment- it's educational-- it's fun for the whole family... err... maybe.
  by: JollyGreenGiant   08/05/2006 05:31 PM     
I'm not here to compare who's got bigger numbers than who...perhaps you are.

One thing Paris Hilton isn't is educational...entertainment yes but nothing more, nothing less.

I'm saying everytime she coughs, sneezes or answers ANY question it's classed as 'News'.

Perhaps a toning down of her is needed, censoring her isn't going to work afterall but at least raise the bar for her to become news; crashing a car, slapping a photographer etc.

  Very comparable to:  
Hugo Chavez.

Answer the Girls Question?

Who in the hell is Tony Blair?

I think she said it all. :)
  by: captainJane     08/06/2006 04:28 PM     
  not a pissing contest  
@mr.anderson not trying to offend- hoping that you weren't one of those 'This isn't news!' wankers. You aren't.

@captainjane- you mean Paris Hilton was asking an existential
question "Who, indeed, is this Tony Blair? Who are you? What am I? Why are we here?"
  by: JollyGreenGiant   08/06/2006 05:49 PM     
  Quit crapping on her  
True story: I can't name many people outside the
US. In fact, I think the average American wouldn't
know WHO Tony Blair was...they might know the
name, but probably not the position nor the history
of him.

It's not like she said "Who's Dick Cheney?" or "Who's
Martin Luther King, Jr?".

Hell, I can't even name the Candian I guess
if I was a star and was asked that, I would get
crapped on. If you expect young celebs to konw
political figures & people that dont concern
them....then you're expecting WAY too much.

I just hope she doesn't go down to Ven. I would
hate to read the backlash over her going "Who's
Hugo Chavez?"
  by: hotrock11     08/06/2006 05:58 PM     
  @hotrock and drudge  
the canadian PM is stephen harper... just think of harping on canada and the name will always be on the tip of your tongue.

and yes hotrock people even young celebs should know a thing or two about politics... lets just hope she doesn't vote. she doesn't appear qualified to do such.

@drudge, and how is this comparable with hugo chavez... hell you might as well compare noam chomsky to paris hilton if your comparing hugo chavez to paris hilton
  by: HAVOC666     08/06/2006 06:27 PM     
the perfect candiate to represent the republicans for the next election. And i wouldnt be shock if she won.

didnt bush made comments similiar to these in the past? Who is jiang zemin (the former chinese president) and a few more?

  by: BC     08/06/2006 06:29 PM     
lol... that doesn't surprise me... bush thought mexicans spoke

he also rode a mountian bike into a horse

fell off a segway (which keeps its own balance)

fell off an excerise bike

and screwed up an announcement in a way that declare the governement the enemy of the people (alas truth). the statement was "terroists will never stop looking for ways to harm americans lives and neither will we"...

and to think people made a stink when kerry said hair pollution instead of air pollution.
  by: HAVOC666     08/06/2006 06:48 PM     
  she has beak that wont quit  
i hate her as much as i hate myself and thats alot.but if she was poor she would not be considered pretty she'd be vulture beak
  by: mopboy   08/08/2006 03:05 AM     
  These are the times I wish  
someone would act out the "Without a Trace" episode. A dumb bimbo was kidnapped and the kidnapper was holding an internet poll to see if she would live or die.
