When you're sitting in Paris Hilton's living room, plenty of things catch your attention. The half-dozen dogs, three Munchkin cats (bred to have absurdly miniature legs), and one 150-pound pot-bellied pig sashaying around the backyard pool. The Pepto-Bismol-pink Maserati in the driveway, next to the powder-blue Maserati. The throw pillows emblazoned with pictures of her famous face. The two gigantic nudes of herself on opposing walls, displayed above gold-trimmed couches. But it's the voice — that's the thing that stands out most when you sit down for a talk with Paris Hilton.

Like young bucks at a county fair kissing booth, states are lining up for a chance to court Tesla Motors and its planned $5-billion battery factory. But fair warning, fellas: The intoxicating fragrance of Musk and his money masks a cold business heart. Already a loser in the race for this California girl's affections, though, is, well, California. Oh, sure, we're good enough to design and build the company's eco-luxe Model S. And Californians bought more than one-third of the $70,000-and-up cars last year.

On its surface, the arithmetic is baffling. Paris Hilton plus Cash Money Records equals … sweet, sweet music? The jury is still out on whether the former “Simple Life” star's record deal and current EDM-accented musical direction will yield a bonanza of Top 40 hits à la label mates Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj. But for Paris completists, Hilton's alignment with hip-hop's imprint du jour appears to be a textbook move. PHOTOS: Concerts by The Times As far back as 2006, the professional party girl was claiming fealty to hip-hop's “from the streets to the penthouse” ethos and contextualizing her achievements as an entrepreneur (with a lucrative perfume line, endorsement of champagne in a can and signature nightclub chain)

After all the buzz Monday around that Barron Hilton beatdown, allegedly by Lindsay Lohan pal-of-a-pal Ray LeMoine over the weekend in Miami, it seems Lohan is, at this point, not part of the investigation at all. "[W]e are not investigating Lindsay Lohan," Miami police Sgt. Bobby Hernandez told Celebuzz on Monday. “Lindsay Lohan's name was never mentioned. If she had orchestrated it, we would have been told. And we didn't receive that information on the scene. " But that doesn't mean she's not part of the apparent feud.

Socialite, designer and former reality TV star Paris Hilton has spurred howls of outrage in Saudi Arabia by opening a handbag store in the holy city of Mecca. Her boutique in the Mecca Mall has angered scores of faithful Muslims who don't want anything to do with the blond hotel heiress, who first gained notoriety in 2003 with a homemade sex tape that went viral. Some Saudis have flocked to Twitter to vent about the "insult" to Mecca, where millions of Muslims arrive annually on a pilgrimage.

Josefina Lopez admits to being a woman of large appetites - for creative work, haute cuisine, political activism and erotic adventure, among other things. Where, then, could the L.A. playwright, novelist and screenwriter better hope to fulfill all those cravings simultaneously than in Paris? And where better, she reasoned, could she and her family go to escape the storm and stress of the post-Sept. 11 United States? So when the author of "Real Women Have Curves," her husband and the couple's eldest son decamped to the French capital in the mid-2000s, Lopez said, "I really thought it was for good.

In “The Bling Ring," a group of starry-eyed teens define their worth by the number of designer duds in their closet. The young protagonists of Sofia Coppola's based-on-a-true-story film don't actually own any of these coveted items, of course -- they steal them. Parading through the closets of stars such as Paris Hilton, Rachel Bilson and Lindsay Lohan, their eyes widen as they try out Alexander McQueen sunglasses, Chanel handbags and Christian Louboutin pumps. “Oh, my God,” one character gasps as she comes across a chic top. “It's Balmain.” It's a line uttered by actress Claire Julien, who, fittingly enough, was sporting a Balmain dress on the red carpet at the film's Hollywood premiere Tuesday night.

Before Paris Hilton agreed to let Sofia Coppola film scenes for “The Bling Ring” in her mansion, she didn't know much about how a group of San Fernando Valley youths managed to break into her home four years ago. Though she was questioned by police about the robberies, she says she never realized that the so-called Bling Ring had been in her home on six separate occasions. That was just one of the facts that came to light after she teamed up with Coppola, filming a cameo at a club scene in the movie and allowing the filmmaker to use her actual home as a production location.

In Paris Hilton's world, gay men may be the "horniest," but one heiress is apparently the sorriest. She's apologizing big time for derogatory comments about gay men captured on audio by a cab driver earlier this month in New York. "I want to say how sorry I am. I can't fit the whole apology about the cab recording here, so please read it at @GLAAD," she tweeted late Thursday, including a link to her longer mea culpa on the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation website. Hilton was in town for New York Fashion Week when, in the wee hours of Sept.

Re "Wilde about California," Opinion, May 5 Roy Morris Jr. opens his otherwise interesting piece on Oscar Wilde's 1882 trip to San Francisco with a most unfortunate analogy. If readers come away with the impression that Wilde was of the same ilk as Paris Hilton or the "Jersey Shore" gang, he has done a disservice to Wilde and to your readers. Wilde left us plays that are routinely enjoyed more than a century after he wrote them. Hilton and Snooki will have left us only embarrassment at the vacuousness of our popular culture.
