Some nimrod on Yahoo! Answers has been demanding that someone agree with his premise that “this adult woman and 13yo boy were cast together in this music video.”
So I dialed over to it, and here’s Paris Hilton, then twenty-five, not exactly comporting herself lewdly with a nerd half her age.
“Nothing In This World” was the third single from Paris, her first album; it topped out at #12 on the Billboard dance-club chart. And it reinforced my belief that Paris Hilton has to be pushed hard to appear lubricious, that she’s a fairly ordinary, if sorta cute, woman with a few billion to spare. I said this of her infamous sex tape:
[I]n my opinion she didn’t come across, so to speak, as some sort of Hollywood succubus: she looks kind of small, appallingly young, and mostly dutiful.
She’s larger here, if only because the beleaguered nerd hasn’t reached his final form yet. Anyway, this is a lot less filthy than, say, “Hot for Teacher,” and no one accuses Van Halen of smut.
