paris hilton cultural icon
Paris's hit TV show the "Simple Life" completes her and her intentional or unintentional mission to appeal to the masses who desire the "real". reality TV is the hallmark of postmodernism that greatest thing we as a civilization have truly accomplished. Reality TV says ( and this is not intended to be ironic) We our so in love with ourselves we only want to watch people on the television if we ourselves have a chance to be on that screen. it is the ulitmate in selfishness, and that is what the american is today. To be an american today is to avoid feeling bad to avoid thinking beyond the self. and to seek the "real" while creating fictions to validate what is "real". we truly deserve paris hilton.
