There are a few moments in pop culture that will stand the test of time forever –– Kanye and Taylor at the VMAs, Alexis Neiers’ phone call on Pretty Wild, and the violin intro to Veronicas’ ‘Untouched’.
Now Paris Hilton has spoken about the moment on her podcast, This Is Paris, and apparently the picture tells a totally different story from what actually happened.
She says that her and Spears went out to the Beverly Hills Hotel for a party, and decided to leave to go home.
“We were walking to the car and all of as suddenly got swarmed by a tons of paparazzi. Just as we got to the car, that’s when Lindsay came up. It was kind of awkward because we were having some drama.”
(FYI, the drama was that there was a video going around the internet of Lohan claiming that Hilton spilled a drink on her and hit her at a party.)
“All of a sudden, I look over, and she’s in my car,” Hilton continued. “We weren’t getting along, but I was polite.”
“We saw it on the cover of the NY Post [the next morning], all these different magazines. They had literally no idea it was just me and Britney out, at the Beverly Hills Hotel, just going home.”
At one point in the 2000s, Hilton and Lohan were close friends, but on her podcast the heiress explains that their friendship didn’t last long.
“She did some things to really hurt me and betrayed my trust, and caused a lot of drama,” she said. “So we weren’t friends anymore, and it was kind of like this on and off friendship.”
Though in hindsight, Hilton says that there was a lot working against them to encourage rivalry between the pair.
“But when I think about it now, we were just so young, immature. It was like high school drama, especially in the L.A. scene, and to live it out in public with the media constantly trying to stir things up and make things worse than they were. Back then, the media really enjoyed having girls feud with each other.”
