She's Not Her Persona
30 September 2020 | by stefstarsSee all my reviews

Growing up in the 2000's, I remember Paris Hilton being the ideal for many girls. She was a trend setter, she was attractive, she was always at THE places to be at. Yet, everyone figured she was a bimbo. Doing a show like "The Simple Life" just fueled that perception of her. While she pretended to be stupid in public, so did many regular girls. I witnessed that at my own schools. I found Paris funny but I was always more of an Amy Winehouse fan at the time. Another "wild girl" of the time but who couldn't be bothered with keeping a made up persona. Pretending to be stupid was never my thing. Something always told me Paris Hilton was not the vapid girl she displayed herself as in the public eye. This documentary confirms that.

You can see that she struggles with letting her real self come out. The baby voiced Paris we're all familiar with comes out even when she's trying to let her guard down. That alone is enough proof of the trauma this woman has. Too many people might accuse her of being fake, but you can tell that she's uncomfortable being her true "imperfect" self in front of a camera. The real Paris with the deeper voice comes out when she's really into her emotions and especially when she's retelling the trauma of attending that horrible excuse for a school. Learning how strict and conservative her family is helps all of Paris' public decisions make sense. Another tale about how money makes no difference. All the riches in the world and the ugliness of life can still creep in.

Yes there are times where her spoiled upbringing comes out, such as her talking about her large collection of shoes (some of which she never wears) or her goal of being a billionaire. This can rub the average person the wrong way but it shouldn't take away one's ability to empathize with her. No one deserves to have gone what she's gone through. This was a free spirited girl who was trapped by her parents and when they couldn't really do it, they had abusers in the guise of disciplinarians do the job. I think if her parents were more realistic and simply cautioned her about what comes with being a socialite rather than just treat her like a prisoner, she wouldn't have gone overly wild, and that's true of any child from any socioeconomic background.

The documentary isn't perfect, it's not this cinematic or (youtube) masterpiece, but you certainly get a new perspective of Paris Hilton. I hope people listen to her story instead of instantly bashing her.
