A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this song and video were supposedly leaked and now have been pulled from most websites. There are snippets of the video still available, and it features a red-lipped Paris Hilton flaunting herself and making light of drinking, sexting, taking pictures up someone's skirt and texting it for fun, and hooking up with guys she meets at a club. Although Hilton claims the whole thing is a joke, the song still sends a negative image to teens who might otherwise still look up to this heiress who is famous for nothing but her shallow lifestyle.
What's the story?
Conveniently ahead of the apparent release of her not-so-anticipated album, Paris Hilton's "DRUNK TEXT" was leaked as a video on the Internet that features a seductive, red-lipped Hilton flaunting herself and her party-girl image. It's about -- you guessed it -- drunk texting at a club.
Is it any good?
"Just a demo I did for fun with friends a while ago," claims the hungry-for-any-level-of-media-attention socialite, but "Drunk Text"-- joke or not -- only proves once again that money can't buy you everything, especially talent and taste. With Hilton speaking in monotone (luckily she doesn't really sing) the entire song, the lyrics say, "You take the word 'sex' and mix it with 'texting,' it's called 'sexting.' When you add drunk sexting the words just don't make any sense." Yeah, exactly.
