scandal 18/08/2020

A new doco shows a side of Paris Hilton no one has ever seen before. As part of Youtube Originals, she is starring in a documentary called This Is Paris, in which she takes us behind the scenes of what seems like a glamourous life. She also refers to the trauma she experienced during childhood. 

She says,

I feel like the whole world thinks they know me,

"No one really knows who I am. ... I don't even know who I am sometimes. I didn't used to be that way."

I'm so used to like, playing a character, that it's hard for me be normal,

The trailer shows footage from her current life, at DJ sets and in her house, as well as childhood home videos. When talking about the childhood trauma with sister Nicky Hilton, it gets very emotional.

"But I couldn't tell you guys, because every time I tried, I would get punished by them," 

"I still have nightmares about it. The only thing that saved my sanity was thinking about who I wanted to become when I got out of there. I just created this brand and this persona and this character, and I've been stuck with her ever since."

It certainly seems intense and emotional, but we will definitely be watching, watch the full trailer above.
