Who in the Holy freaking world told her that she could sing? Why hasn't the UN stepped in and done something? Why is that dirty tramp allowed to be on my radio? Why? Why?

I mean, she doesn't need the money or the exposure. What's to be gained from releasing this aural crime against humanity?

I wonder as well. I use this question with many other artists like The Pussycat Dolls and other NEW MODERN bands. I hate all that R&B + rap they can't even sing. IMHO.

I know it did, but the point is that they can't sing.

Wait wait.

That means anyone can sing and they sound really bad yet they can make tons of money. mmm interesting how society works these days.

well, the record label's main purpose is to generate revenue so they really don't care about good singing as much as you'd think.

Which just goes to prove the old saying, "People are stupid."
If the American people were smart, Paris Hilton would have been forgotten three years ago, her name remembered only on porn sites.

By the way, don't forget to pick up werbert's new album, "Kittens in a Mirror." It drops September 12. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I haven't heard the song thank goodness, as if anyone in this country would take her seriously.

Sadly, I heard the song. It's a ripp off from a band that came out years ago. She just changed the lyrics.

What gives you the idea that she had anything to do with writing the song?

The fact that Paris Hilton has an album is the epitome of what's wrong with this country. That, and the fact that she's famous at all.

An Update: Paris Hilton's album has sold 120,000 copies in the U.S.

Think about that. That is 120,000 people who walked into a music store, saw the album, and thought it might be good. And that's not even counting those who have downloaded it illegally.
