Paris Hilton Invented the Selfie and Everything Else You’re Doing in 2k17

Paris Hilton has five iPhones and knows how to use them. She’s been using tech the way we all do now for probably 15 years at least, and she knows it. Holton told W magazine:

“If a beeper had a camera, I would have taken a selfie with it. I think I have a selfie from when I was a little kid, like on a disposable camera.”

The original influencer, Hilton, was the first to turn her famous name into a whole new kind of social empire. Now everyone from Paris Jackson to Kendall Jenner is following in her footsteps.

Hilton was one of the first successful reality TV personalities who turned it into a career and was one of the first to have a sex tape leaked.

She built a personal brand before anyone even knew what the f**k a Kardashian was and now she makes a million a night as DJ and is $2 billion deep in a booming perfume business. She did it all without Instagram and a team of goons. In fact, she thinks getting famous these days is almost too easy.

“Nowadays, I feel like it’s so easy becoming famous,” said Hilton, with a shrug. “Anybody with a phone can do it.”

Gotta love Instagram.
