Paris Hilton calls out Pink for parodying her sex tape in the music video for 'Stupid Girls,' but says 'there's no Pink–Paris feud'
- Paris Hilton reflected on being parodied in Pink's "Stupid Girls" music video in her memoir.
- "Pink sang about 'outcasts and girls with ambition,'" she wrote. "But she chose not to see it in me."
Paris Hilton reflected on having her sex tape parodied in Pink's music video for her hit song "Stupid Girls."
The businesswoman and reality star shared her thoughts on the single, which was released in 2006, and poked fun at the sex tape she was coerced into making at 19 with her ex-boyfriend Rick Salomon five years earlier.
The music video also mocked other stars and socialites from the early 2000s such as Jessica Simpson, Fergie, Nicole Richie, and Mary-Kate Olsen.
"The whole video is a not-at-all-subtle send-up of 'porno paparazzi girls' in general and, specifically, me, in a parody of my infamous sex tape," Hilton wrote in her autobiography, "Paris: The Memoir," released on Tuesday.
"Pink sang about 'outcasts and girls with ambition' and said, 'That's what I wanna see.' But she chose not to see it in me," she continued.
Hilton went on to add that she respects Pink, considering her both "effing amazing" and "a great mom," but questioned why the "generous, evolved, and progressive" singer decided to shame her over the release of her sex tape.
"When everyone was buzzing about a sex tape of a certain teenage girl from a soon-to-be-hit TV show — a girl who said emphatically over and over that she did not want the tape out there — the takeaway was 'Stupid Girl.'"
A representative for Pink did not respond to a request for comment.
"To be clear: I'm not mad at Pink. There's no Pink–Paris 'feud.' That's not a thing," Hilton went on. "I have the attention span of a gnat, which means I suck at holding grudges. Anyway, anger doesn't help; honesty does."
In 2017, Pink said that "The Simple Life" star once confronted her in a club about the music video.
"Paris was upset with me," Pink told Andy Cohen during an appearance on "Watch What Happens Live."
"She said, 'I just want you to know that I get it, I'm not dumb, I just play like I'm dumb.' And I was like, 'That's kind of my point,'" she said.
According to Hilton, she was "tipsy and tired" the night the sex tape was filmed but was reassured by Salomon, who she did not name in the book, that it would be "just for us."
The professional poker player, who she began dating when she was 18, had been "pushing" for them to make a tape together, which Hilton took quaaludes and drank in order to participate in.
"I wasn't capable of the level of trust required to make a videotape like that," she wrote. "But I did it. I have to own that. I knew what he wanted, and I went with it."
"Most important: if this was something I had chosen to do, I would have owned it," she continued. "I would have stood by it, capitalized on it, licensed the shit out of every frame, and then boogied on over to the bank without apologizing to anyone."
"I'm not judging any woman who does choose to do all that," she added. "I'm saying that choice was taken from me, and it hurt me."
