Publisher Description

***An Instant New York Times Bestseller***

From the woman who is credited for launching what we know as the celebrity focused, “brand” driven, social media obsessed popular culture of today, comes an honest and surprising memoir that reckons with that truth, and shows that there is so much more to Paris Hilton than you might believe. This extended edition includes a bonus chapter detailing her motherhood journey.

I was born in New York City on February 17, 1981, three days after Valentine’s Day. 

From the time I was a toddler, my brain skipped and flickered with the chemical imbalance of ADHD. Sometimes it was too much.

I’m not bragging or complaining about it, just telling you: This is my brain. It has a lot to do with how this whole book thing is going to play out, because I love run-on sentences—and dashes. And sentence fragments. I’m probably going to jump around a lot while I tell the story.

I came of age during the most turbulent pop culture period ever.

The character I played—part Lucy, part Marilyn—was my steel-plated armor.

People loved her. Or they loved to hate her, which was just as marketable. I leaned into that character, my ticket to financial freedom and a safe place to hide. I made sure I never had a quiet moment to figure out who I was without her. I was afraid of that moment because I didn’t know what I’d find.

I wrote this book in an effort to understand my place in a watershed moment: the technology renaissance, the age of influencers. I also wrote this book so that the world could know who I am today. I focused on key aspects of my life that led to what I am most proud of--how my power was taken away from me and how I took it back, how I built a thriving business, a marriage and a family.

There are so many young women who need to hear this story. I don’t want them to learn from my mistakes; I want them to stop hating themselves for their own mistakes. I want them to laugh and cry and embrace every aspect of who they are with fearlessness and pride. We all have our own brand of intelligence, and, girl, f**k fitting in.

Well written

I don’t care what your thoughts are about Paris. Her book is moving and there is no way you can’t emphasize with her and love her.

Solid decent read.

I liked how honest she seems to be, but can’t help but pick up on her narcissistic personality. Her being so open about the abuse she endured in her teen years is brave, as well as her opening up about the tape scandal. But she thinks everything she’s done is greater than it is. For example, she referred to the movie “House of Wax” as a classic. It’s really not. She also goes on a decent amount about how much she wants a daughter… which is only odd because after that she mentions being pregnant with her son. A bit odd to go on and on about how you want a daughter while pregnant with a boy. Even her IVF journey she talks about trying to get a girl. I also don’t think she fully comprehends the privilege she comes from, being a woman or not. She says she does, but after listening to this I don’t think she fully comprehends it. It almost felt like she said it cause she has too. This wasn’t the best nor the worst book I’ve listened too. I don’t think it’s worth $17 dollars tho. Also, I wish she would have let someone else narrate it! It sounds like she’s trying to be seductive the whole time, it’s weird and you can’t convince me that’s her real voice lol.
