Have you had “Stars Are Blind” stuck in your head for the past 12 years? Us too. Thankfully, Paris Hilton is answering the universe’s prayers. In a tweet Monday evening, the heiress and reality TV star announced that she would be getting back in the music business.
“Back in the studio,” she wrote. “New music coming soon…”
Hilton, a socialite who became a household name thanks to her reality series The Simple Life and her signature “that’s hot” catchphrase, released her first studio album, Paris, in 2006. The album peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard 200, and the debut single, “Stars are Blind,” reached 18 on the Hot 100. (In a review, EW’s Leah Greenblatt wrote, “The Hilton heiress brings the beats. And God help us, we’re dancing,” even if the lyrics were “often both inane and vaguely porny.”)
Back in 2008, Hilton announced that she had finished a second album, but it was never released. Hopefully this is our year!
