Review of “Paris Hilton Inc.: The Selling of Celebrity” (2007)

Moving picture, 49 minutes

On Dennis Miller Live in 1996, Jason Alexander said, “My favourite story about fame and how psychotic people get about it, uh, I once went to speak at a school and there was a 16-year-old girl—now I think 16 is fairly advanced on the maturity level—and the girl says: ‘You know what, I don’t care what I do, I just want to be famous.’ And I thought, y’know, I should really just shoot her in the head, because it would serve two things: It would make her famous, as the girl that Jason Alexander shot in the head, and it would, y’know, spare the world of the banality of the rest of her life.”
