Paris Hilton has spoken out against Pink‘s famous recreation of her sex tape in a music video, claiming the singer made her feel shamed and diminished.
In her new memoir Paris: The Memoir, the 42-year-old casts back to 2006 when Pink released the music video for her song Stupid Girls.
Hilton claims that after receiving an onslaught of negative backlash and shaming for the release of her sex tape with then-boyfriend Rick Salomon in 2003, Pink’s music video only served to make things worse.

“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,” Hilton writes.
In her memoir, Hilton reveals she was pressured into filming the tape with Salomon, who was 13 years older than her at the time. She was 19 while he was 32.
“He told me if I wouldn’t do it, he could easily find someone who would, and that was the worst thing I could think of – to be dumped by this grown man because I was a stupid kid who didn’t know how to play grown-up games,” she writes.
Addressing the sex tape itself, Hilton writes: “The world thinks of me as a sex symbol, and I’m here for that, because ‘symbol’ literally means ‘icon.’

“But when people saw that sex tape, they didn’t say ‘icon,’ they said ‘slut.’ They said ‘whore.’ And they weren’t shy about it.”
Reflecting on the Stupid Girls music video, which features Pink dressing up as various versions of Hilton and other high-profile young American socialites of the time, Hilton calls it a “not-at-all-subtle send-up of ‘porno paparazzi girls’ in general and, specifically, me.”
Though Hilton claims she’s not wanting to feud with the singer, and is merely being “honest”.
Pink is yet to respond to Hilton’s comments, but did touch on the subject of the music video in an interview from 2017.

The So What singer revealed Hilton brought up the music video with her.
“Paris was upset with me. 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… I’m gonna go, good to see ya,” Pink said.
