Paris is Turning? We’ll See About That

When even Paris Hilton is getting eco-centric, has the whole world gone mad? Paris has apparently become aware that our environment has been having some problems. Last week, Ford gave her an Escape hybrid, and she explained how she like, really wants to save the world when she appeared at BPM magazine’s green party at Avalon in L.A. "I'm getting a car from Ford, a hybrid one. They gave me one. So, I think driving hybrid cars is the new way to go. And recycling." Now Paris is going to drive her hybrid instead of her old Range Rover SUV. And recycle.

Wow, thanks, Paris! Pardon my cynicism here, but is this going to be like the time she went to jail and totally got into religion and the Bible, and then when Larry King asked her what her favorite Bible passage was, there was an awkward pause and she responded that she didn’t have one? It’s just that celebrities are already suspect when they endorse serious causes, so it doesn’t necessarily help to have someone so inarticulate representing environmental issues.

"Driving hybrid cars is the new way to go. Anyone can do it, no matter how old,” Paris continued, with childlike simplicity.

If she really means it, she should put her fortune where her mouth is: Girlfriend has so much of the other kind of green that she could purchase a new ozone layer, or at least a round of hybrids for everyone.

But she says she is so inspired to save the earth that she is going to blog about it on MySpace. “I’m going to start writing (on MySpace) about ways kids can help save the world, because anyone can do it, no matter how old you are or where you’re from. I just want this world to be a better place for my grandchildren. I’m scared with what’s going on in the environment, so I hope people will help and make a difference. Everyone can.”

It’s a simple life, after all.

Wait: She’s going to reproduce?!
