Paris famous for being famous for being famous...

(KP International) Is celebutante Paris Hilton famous for no particular skill or talent (everyone seemed to know her name prior to her homemade video, reality show, "acting" career and "music" path)? Is she just famous for being famous (or rich and...)? Whatever the reason, she's everywhere these days and though we may not understand why, she'll be going down in history books. Make that book. The Guinness Book of World Records has reportedly decided to induct the hotel heiress for being the most overrated celebrity, according to a spokesperson from the renowned record book.
Apparently Hilton's name cropped up on countless magazine polls in which readers voted for their least favourite and most overrated celebrity. While topping these polls says something about Hilton, it could also be a comment on our society in which we're inundated by so many annoying stars (like James Blunt who was voted more annoying than a paper cut in a UK poll) that we feel the need to find the most detested and irritating. Granted there are many to chose from; apparently mother of the year Britney Spears and couch-jumping Tom Cruise also made the list.
