50 Cent Makes Paris Hilton Cry
Being Paris Hilton must be hard work. It was only a couple of months ago that David Letterman asked her on his show, and then proceeded to bombard her with questions about her gaol-time. Paris handled the barrage so calmly she actually made Letterman look like a weasel (Paris with class! Who would have thought!...) but was apparently so distraught after the show that she vowed never to go on-air with him again.
But like a promise of sobriety or a promise of monogamy - indeed, like the rehab centre Promises itself - Paris has renenged on that vow quite lightly. It didn't take much to get her to change her mind. Letterman just sent her some flowers, and a letter of apology, and Paris agreed to appear on his show once more.
To Letterman's credit, he was very well-behaved this time around, and introduced her appearance with the following speech - so much that he might almost have been momentarily confusing himself with that other touchy-feely host, Oprah:
"I made a fool of myself and I hurt the woman's feelings," Letterman said before Paris' appearance.
"I went too far. I said... let me apologize to you in person. In 26 years of being on the air, I have offended thousands of people... but Paris, God bless her, has the backbone to come and be on the show."
This time, Paris was all smiles, as she was given free reign to talk about all the things that were most important to her i.e. shoes, sparkling wine, mobile phone videogames, jewelry, watches, perfumes, clothing lines and a brand new movie. Never mind the children starving in Africa. It was a genu-ine Hollywood happy ending.
Or was it? While that Paris public-relations party was quickly over, another party poo-poo was brewing. Paris' next public stop was hosting the Arizona Super Bowl pre-party with her professed hero, 50 Cent, and all was going hunky dory until Fiddy called out to Paris in the audience, and Paris tried to clamber on the stage with him.
"Get the fuck off the stage!" Fiddy shouted at Paris, causing the tears to flow as surely as champagne in a can. Page Six reports that Paris began sobbing, whining and saying to staff "But it's my party!"
So much for the decorum. Maybe she's spending too much time with her puppy dogs. But it must be hard being Paris.
We don't know what Fiddy would have to offer to get her to forgive him, but it probably wouldn't be much- Paris clearly works hard for every 50 cents.
