Paris Hilton will “separate the brand from the ambassador” in her upcoming memoir

Say what you will, but Paris Hilton has always had a way with words. We're talking about the woman who coined "that's hot" and the phrase "some girls are just born with glitter in their veins". And that's without digging into twenty years worth of material. But unlike her earlier written work – Confessions of an Heiress for the uninitiated – it appears Paris Hilton's first memoir is set to do away with the public persona the DJ, model, media personality and fashion icon has curated over the past two decades. Instead in Paris: The Memoir, Hilton plans to "separate the creation from the creator, the brand from the ambassador" in a rare glimpse behind the curtain. Everything we know about the book, below.

From the very beginning Paris Hilton has been something of an enigma to us all, and despite the media's best attempts few have been able to see behind the cult of personality. That was until her YouTube Originals documentary dropped in 2020, and we saw a more vulnerable side to Hilton. Well, it seems her memoir will use the ground made in This Is Paris as a launching pad; covering her "meteoric rise from Upper West Side club kid to household name" including all those memorable pop culture moments.

More importantly, Hilton gets candid about having ADHD, the media's mistreatment of her during her early noughties reign, her sex tape leak, the trauma she experienced at boarding school – basically navigating fame as a young woman before Me Too.

Announced on Instagram, Hilton gave her followers a first look at the cover which is every bit as pink as you'd imagine. Picked up by HarperCollins, Paris Hilton: The Memoir will land on shelves across the globe on March 14. That's hot.
