Paris Hilton - CareerIn recent years Hilton has gained recognition by appearing in television, movies, commercials, and sex tapes, as well as modeling. According to Forbes magazine, in 2003-2004 she earned approximately US$7.5 million for her television and movie roles, but in 2004-2005 her earnings from television, movies, modeling, and personal appearances have earned her an additional $15.5 million. During this period Forbes Magazine has ranked Hilton as one of the top 100 celebrities in the world.
She also appeared in the short subjects QIK2JDG and L.A. Knights, as well as minor and supporting roles in the feature movies House of Wax (In Picture), The Hillz, Wonderland, Uptown Girls, Raising Helen and Nine Lives. She landed her first lead role in a theatrical release with National Lampoon's Pledge This! (2005).
Hilton and Nicole Richie (daughter of Lionel) starred in the 2003 FOX hit reality series The Simple Life (In Picture), in which they lived with a family on their farm in rural Altus, Arkansas. Highlights of the show included the girls performing poorly at various jobs, making out with the local boys, and numerous instances of them shown as "fish out of water." On March 19, 2004, Hilton suffered a horseback riding accident while filming The Simple Life 2: Road Trip, requiring treatment at a hospital. The Simple Life 3: Interns was another huge success and they will start shooting the 4th season of The Simple Life that E! has picked up. Following the success of the first season of the show, Hilton is now being paid around US$10 million per season.
In April 2005, however, Hilton announced that she severed both personal and professional ties with Richie . Neither party has commented on the reason why, though Hilton has alluded that it is due to actions on the part of Richie. Unconfirmed reports suggest that Hilton hosted a party to watch her performance as host of Saturday Night Live, but that Richie switched the SNL tape with a tape of Hilton's infamous sex video.
She was also the subject of a negative South Park episode entitled "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset" (In Picture) in which she opens a store called "Stupid Spoiled Whore" selling girls everything they need to emulate her.
In November 2004, Hilton participated in Sean "P. Diddy" Combs' Vote or Die campaign (In Picture), to encourage youths to vote in the Presidential election. She drew criticism when it was revealed she did not vote, nor had she even registered to do so. Ironically, she would somewhat fulfill her theoretical obligation to "die" when the promoters of her film, House of Wax, employed a notorious "See Paris die" advertisement campaign, highlighting the death scene of her character in the film.
On top of her acting career, she has also helped to design purses for Samantha Thavasa and Toys for Tots, and has created her own jewelry line for Amazon.com. Currently, her design work earns around US$250,000 per year.
She is the founder of Heiress Records, a label on which she plans to release her debut album in 2006, tentatively titled Paris is Burning. Her planned first single entitled 'Screwed' was leaked to the Internet (In Picture) and has been remixed by Alex G. Her producers for the album include Jane Wiedlin from The Go-Go's and Scott Storch. She will be covering Blondie's hit "Heart of Glass" for her album. She describes the album as pop, rock and hip hop, she says it sounds like Blondie and Madonna. Hilton has announced in some interviews that her highly anticipated album is due in April 2006. Paris Also has a single out "Caught Up In The Rapture" with Wong-G and Gizelle.
