Back of Do You Think Paris Is Really in on the Joke About Herself? It's no secret that everyone loves to poke fun at Paris Hilton, including the heiress herself. In an interview with Nylon magazine she said: "I’m smart and I know what’s going on. I can laugh at myself; I’m in on the joke. I know what you guys think of me, and I’m going to play into it and make you laugh at the same time." Do you agree with Paris that she is in on the joke about herself?

She'll put all you haterz to shame at the end of the day with her success. Loves it. Parisy :) Amesabelle 8 years She is so aware of all of her media coverage, how can we possibly think she's not in on the joke. However, I think her ego keeps her from believing how MUCH of a joke people think she is. She may be laughing her way to the bank, but at the expense of her self-respect? That's sad. hottinpink9021 8 years Of course. She just acts stupid and immature for attention, like Jessica Simpson. Me and some of my friends used to do that...in middle school. She's probably a decently smart person, but I guess she just likes the type of attention she gets from acting the was she does. And she does get a lot of attention, so kudos to her! lexichloe 8 years Of course she knows...she has very limited education. The years she could have been educating herself were spent wasting brain cells. She's LIKE TOTALLY in on the joke. torimidori 8 years I don't know i used to despise Paris but the more I watch her and listen to what she says...I can't say I hate her so much. She seems to have grown up a lot since the beginning of her huge intro to fame. She's gotten a lot better, and seems to have an understanding of what is going on. But at the same time I'm not saying I'd kick it with her lol californiagirlx7 8 years Maybe she is in on the joke, but if I was a "celebrity" I wouldn't want to be known as a dumb, talentless celebutard. You can make lots of money and not be intelligent...she just puts her face on products to make money. She has never been known for her talent. aeschere 8 years i'm quite sure she hasn't a clue how big the joke really is. holysnap 8 years God she's one ugly tranny looking hag. redhair 8 years she is pathetic!I can't stand her!!! oxykisses 8 years shes def in on the joke. people are forgetting that sex sells, idiots sell, and everything else thats not good for you. Good people who are smart and talented dont seem to attract attention as much as idiots and sexual stuff does. The entertainment business is all fake. Everyone in it is..its all an act and everyone has their own niche whether you guys like it or not. A true "dumb" individual wouldn't make this much money and still be around till this day. Did you guys even know that paparazzi is hired by WB?? Its all designed to make money off of guys like you who buy into it all!! Penny4545 8 years she may be annoying and even a "joke", but she can at least find comfort in the FACT that Heidi and Spencer are far worse. kh312 8 years lets say that she is on it for the sake of argument.why would she do that? how did it start? i don't like anyone enjoys letting people think they are stupid when they're not.and they definitely wouldn't let it go on for so long. MissFamous182 8 years In the 2nd photo.... it look like shes taking it in the bbbbbbbbuuuuuuuuttttttttt. DandyCat 8 years She definitely knows what she's doing. Every "stupid" thing she says or does earns her more notoriety and more money, and she knows it. 356UIK 8 years I think she def has never intended for anyone to take her seriously. I think she's the one who is having the last laugh...all the way to the bank. mu5235 8 years can't stand her Sophie827 8 years She doesn't seem bright - I do think there are a lot of bright people on her publicity team though. I much rather be a private citizen then the a complete joke in the public eye. Anyway that wants to appear stupid is stupid. I'd rather my dignity than Balenciaga handbags. The people that look up to her and buy her merchandise are usually kids. She's doesn't seem to care that's promoting the dumb slutty blonde image to the next generation as long as she keeps getting those massive paychecks. joannn 8 years No matter what, if you're someone in your late 20s and still acting like you're in your teens, doesn't strike me as very smart marybethrizalucy 8 years The pic on the left looks like she is in some sexual position and of course she knows it. She is kind of like Pam Anderson. Knows she is pretty and not the smartest tease on the planet. Be nice about her nose. Long sharp noses are beautiful. That is a weird transition for Nylon. Ineedclarity 8 years After having a cool cover subject last month, Zooey Deschanel, Nylon has to crap it out with her. Diamond720 8 years Yet another blonde making TENS of MILLIONS a year off the Bimbo Act, shes totally in on the joke... Think Marilyn Monroe, Pam Anderson, and in a sense Jessica Simpson. Even if they aren't that smart, they are smart enough to surround themselves with people who will make them a ton of money. She has made herself a brand, which takes a lot more work and intelligence than your average person. carol1225k 8 years Ugly bitch! daniemre 8 years She acts too ridiculous to not be playing along with everyone italianblonde 8 years I think she is, because she's not even a good enough actress to play the dumb blonde role well!! She's just too annoying anyway and should go elsewhere. SugarandtheCity 8 years Did people not see her response to the McCain campaign add against her? She uses her ditzy persona to highlight how even someone who is allegedly "dumb" like her GETS the REAL ISSUES way better than one of our candidates. She is in on the joke. No doubt.
