(Hollywood) - Celebrity, Paris Hilton, is planning to invade the East African country of Rwanda. By going to Rwanda, she plans to call attention to extreme poverty, by calling attention to herself.
Ms Hilton owes her international celebrity status to being the internet's first amateur porn star with a trust fund (Hilton hotels).
Hilton, who, after getting out of jail, purchased a home in Beverly Hills, where the average price of a house is $2.7 million, held a press conference today to announce her Wander-in-Rwanda trip. She stated, "This tour is not about me, it's about bringing attention to something I know nothing about ... poverty. I hear there are people in Africa who don't wear designer clothes, don't eat in fancy restaurants or drive fancy cars. That's shocking but more importantly, as a rich white chick, it's good for my image to wander those poor black people and point out poverty wherever I see it. I want to wander among the poor in Rwanda, with my 5 bodyguards, 100 paparazzi, my PR person and my makeup and stylist crew and then go back to my $1,000-a-night hotel suite and ponder poverty. I want to show the world, which consists of the Hollywood media, that poverty really exists. And I understand from all the rich people in Hollywood that you have to go to Africa to do that."
Paris the heiress wrapped it up by saying, "This trip is not about me, it's about the n-e-w me. The trip is about me getting publicity about poverty. I want to show the world that, when it comes to poor people, I really really c-a-r-e."
Now, that's hot!
