What's hot

What is up with this wall-to-wall Paris Hilton mania? The girl who's famous for being ... famous. It is quite clear that she is utterly gormless, yet she's on every red carpet and redtop. "That's hot," is her catchphrase; indeed it seems to be the limit of what passes for conceptual thought in her pretty little head. I've just seen a report that someone asked her what she thought of Tony Blair. Well, he's not hot. Her response was "Who?" and after a little explanation, "Oh yeah, he's like, your president? Uh, I don't even know what he looks like." Whatever.

Of course, without Paris, and her fucked-up friend Nicole, E! Entertainment TV would be somewhat short of "material". Paris was also asked -- perhaps by the same wicked British interviewer, which showbiz icon she would like to be. The answer: "Marilyn Monroe mixed with Princess Diana." That explains the worldbeating pout. But she can't do smoulder like Diana. Paris just isn't hot enough.

I must stop watching E!
