While most people think of Paris Hilton as a celebrity who’s famous for being famous, the hotel heiress actually started several entertainment ventures over the years. From modeling to writing to acting to podcasting, she’s done quite a few things over the years to expand and cement her fame. Among these ventures was her brief foray into music, which saw her turn down the chance to sing a song that would become a major hit for another act.
