NEW YORK (AP) -- Paris Hilton is no stranger to self-promotion. But when she asked DJs to play songs from her upcoming debut album, "Paris," last spring, she wasn't so confident.
"People go crazy," the 25-year-old socialite/reality TV star/singer says in an interview in the September issue of Blender magazine, on newsstands Tuesday. "They love it. Everyone's like, 'Who is this?' I don't tell. Because I don't want someone putting their phone up and recording it and making a ring tone off of it.
"I think when people don't know it's me, they won't judge it. But if they know it's me, then they'll be like, 'Ugh.' They won't even dance."
"Paris" the album was set for release Tuesday. Hilton's breathy, reggae-infused single, "Stars Are Blind," has climbed to the top of Billboard's dance music chart.
Hilton posed for Blender's cover and inside pages wearing lingerie; in one photo, she wears a pink bra, black fishnet stockings and gold platform heels.
Of her album, she says, "I, like, cry, when I listen to it, it's so good."
Hilton says the baby voice she uses on the reality TV show "The Simple Life" is an act.
"I'm always playing a character," she says. "I don't talk like this really -- like a baby. I don't act like myself in public, because I don't really want to show everyone the real me. Because I have no privacy whatsoever, the only thing I have is who I really am."

To All Residents of Fernando La Casa (and anyone who breaks in or is otherwise invited): There are the following foods that were made: 1) Vegetarian Chili. Please don't eat too much of it because it needs to be meals for me... 2) Cinnamon-Raisin Bread. This is now the property of Wildeap so take up theft with him. 3) Peanutbutter chocolate cake. Eat this and die the painful death of one beaten by 5 women rugby players who were denied cake. It won't be pretty. 4) peanutbutter-chocolate cream cheese icing leftover from the aforementioned cake. It's in the fridge in an ikea container. Feel free to eat it. It's tasty and I'm sure it would go well with cookies, cinnamon raisin bread, graham crackers, etc. That's all. Happy Thursday!
Ok...I mean it, really...the ORB is an astounding bit of technology. All I have to do is look at its glowing brilliance and know the state of the trash...hm...state of the trash...I see a future lj entry coming on. How are we ever going to top this? A bobble head Barbara (of any variety) doll???...I guess only if it talked and/or yelled at all passers by.
Hey - I'm not sure I'll be able to get up on the rooftop deck today - the wind is pretty bad, and I don't want to violate the "No Death" Rule. Can we maybe construct something to keep the wind off of us - or do you think we should just wait? I went up there earlier, and it really is just too cold - even with the sun. k
