Paris has had it with the tabloids chasing her in the United States, so she’s packing up and moving to India. Well, no, not really, but she is planning to visit India next year to help her friend, Anand Jon, do an ad campaign for his clothing line.
The hotel heiress has reportedly agreed to star in a clothing campaign to be shot in the country next year, despite her being dissed by Indian officials over the summer who banned her debut music video for “Stars Are Blind” due to its strong sexual connotations.
Anand Jon, the American-born, Indian fashion designer, told the Times of India that the 25-year-old Simple Life star will serve as the face of his eponymous clothing line, which specializes in high-end evening wear.
“Who could be better than Paris—the ultimate It girl—to present my designs?” he said. “Paris is a very close friend of mine. We have known each other for a long time. So, when I told her about this visit, she was pretty excited. For her, India is the land of exotica and beauty. In fact, her response was ‘I finally get to visit the exotic!’ “
Bless. Paris will finally have a chance to “visit the exotic” and wear that beaded chiffon kurti she showed off from her closet in Simple Life 4. Also, I’m feeling for Paris here. I didn’t know her video Stars are Blind was banned in India for being too sexually provocative. I’ve seen raunchier Indian music videos that scandalize me on a daily basis via Indian satellite TV. I think most Indian music videos outwhore the videos played in the U.S. If you want to know what I’m talking about, check out this music video starring India’s top video “It” girl, Rakhi Sawant. If this can pass the censors, Paris should be able to as well.
