So, I said oh, fuck it and listened to Paris Hilton's Stars Are Blind single because of geneli4's intense pressure (in that she did, in fact, make the song available, DAMMIT), and

I kind of like it.

WTF. I'm so disappointed. Okay, memorable title, even though I don't know what the heck it means and can't tell from the song's lyrics. But whatever, I listen to JC Chasez. Your Honor, I'm done, that's it. Also, to continue the perhaps misguided and risky comparison to JC, the "I'll show you mine" line is clever and cheesy in the best JC-like eye-rolling way.

The music... catchy! There's a whole pop-reggae tradition of inoffensive yet sprightly beats and breathy singers, and did anyone accuse Paris of ripping off UB40? Do I remember that from the many ONTD wars about her? Because the song reminds me of them, but I don't hear any actual samples or references, just, you know... smooth reggae.

Her voice doesn't offend, and is perfect for the bubblegum pop of the song, and I like what they did with the doubling tracks or whatever they call them, because instead of sounding like they were trying to give her voice depth, as they surely were, it sounds just slightly out of sync, like backup singers or sound effects or...

I just wrote an entry on Paris Hilton. Huh.

eta: link in the comments. muuhaha
