Paris Hilton wants you to know what she gave up going to Britney’s wedding
As we all know by now, Britney Spears and Sam Asghari got married last week. It looked like a beautiful wedding. I loved Britney’s gown and veil and the flowers were lovely. I was also touched to see the famous faces in attendance. We know that Britney has no problem calling out anyone who wronged her or used her situation as a punchline. So I think it’s safe to assume that her wedding guests were the people who supported her or reached out to her. One of those guests was Paris Hilton, who publicly supported Britney even when the media tried to pit the two women against each other. Britney was invited to Paris’ wedding in November, but Britney wasn’t emotionally prepared for an event of that size, so she did not attend. I’m willing to bet Paris was a little relieved considering how much attention Britney’s presence would have received at PARISFEST ’21 (with special guest “the groom”). But Paris did come to Britney’s wedding and happily posed for photos with the bride and other celebrity guests like Drew Barrymore, Selena Gomez, Donatella Versace, and Madonna.
What Paris was not willing to do, however, was let us walk by without know what a big flipping deal it was that she was there. Because, you see, she had other offers that she turned down to be there. What other offer, you ask? Oh, you didn’t? That’s okay, Paris told us anyway. She was supposed to DJ for President Joe Biden who was in Southern California for the Summit of the Americas and, apparently, craving the Ibiza beats of DJ Paris H. But Paris told told the Commander in Chief “nope.”
Paris Hilton was one of many celebrity friends of Britney Spears and Sam Asghari who showed up to celebrate their nuptials this week. The pair go way back, and there was no way Hilton would ever miss such a big day for her pop star friend. And it turns out, she did miss something pretty big to be there.
On Friday, Hilton released an episode of her This is Paris podcast which sounds like it was recorded right after the epic festivities. She revealed that she had been scheduled to DJ that same night and had to back out—and the person she was going to be DJing for was President Joe Biden. The performance was for his Summit of Americas dinner at the Getty Villa in Los Angeles.
“I was actually asked to DJ for the president and all of the other presidents from around the world for the dinner,” she said on the episode. “But this was more important to me.”
Hilton was also tasked with keeping the event a secret.
“[I] was keeping it top secret all week,” she said. “Literally, I did not tell anyone, not even the people I asked [for] dresses that were sent, my whole team, my glam, my driver, everyone.”
She continued, “I’m not gonna into any details because it was the princess bride’s night and that’s her story to tell, but all I can say is that I am just so incredibly happy for her…She looked stunning. It made me so happy to see that she found her fairytale and they are a beautiful couple and just glowing.”
“I was actually asked to DJ for the president and all of the other presidents from around the world for the dinner.” Bless her heart. The geographic parameters are in the name of the event. But let’s move on. Did Paris get asked to DJ this event? I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt. In the details* for the dinner, it list the entertainment as “The Presidents Own, the United States Marine Band that include vocalists, an orchestra, and 17 trumpeters, as well as the U.S. Military Color Guard carrying the flags of all of the participating Western Hemisphere nations.” Sure, Paris makes perfect sense to open for The President’s Own. Although, I don’t think there is any other way Paris would have known this dinner was happening. She’s been doing good work speaking to Congress on teen congregate care abuse and Pres. Biden might’ve wanted to recognize that. I don’t know how firm the offer was, but I can accept that Paris chose Britney. She had more chance getting her photo on social media for Britney’s wedding. I’m kidding! This is a no brainer to me. I would choose a wedding I believed in over a work thing if I had the luxury. I know it’s the POTUS but not the one Paris voted for, so she doesn’t care.
I think Paris’ comments on how happy she was for Britney were very sweet. And I believe Paris means them. I’ll cast a lot of shade on Paris but not on her friendship with Britney. I think that’s one of the few real parts of Paris’ life. Excepting this after-the-wedding presidential name-drop, Paris didn’t try to anything to upstage Britney’s big day. Unlike Madonna who centered herself in Britney’s wedding photos. You probably know what you’re getting when you’re in Madonna’s orbit, but this is just… so Madonna.
