Move over Mikael: Paris Hilton to make Islam chic

First Michael Jackson, now Paris Hilton?

paris_hilton_islam.jpg

As Nicole Ritchie might say, Islam is hot. It should be noted that according to at least one pundit, Paris Hilton’s embrace of Islam might well be as revolutionary for the faith as Malcolm X was. Truly momentous!

(Yes, I am joking. No, that probably isn’t Paris Hilton. And yes, Michael Jackson’s publicist has denied the conversion thing, too. Though I am unsure about Brian Lara’s status

UPDATE: That really IS Paris Hilton – during an episode of Simple Life, where she and Nicole Ritchie were hosted by a Pakistani family in Los Angeles. Blogger Bilal Zuberi caught the episode on TV and had some commentary:

The two women certainly left an impression on The Ghauris – Mr. Ghauri shuttered his eyes when the go-go-girls started grinding with him at the night club, and the young Ghauri boy kissed a girl and learnt the art of don’t-kiss-and-tell. Mrs. Ghauri definitely tried her best to teach these women a thing or two about being a good wife, passionately claiming her son would never do such a thing! Never in a million years.

And the heiress: well, she was her usual stupid self (though I must say she looked kinda cute in the Pakistani shalwar kameez!). When the host asked them what the religion of Pakistan was, they gave blank stares. When given the hint that “its the religion most talked about since 9/11″. Paris replies flirtatiously,”kabbalah?”. Could it get better! Oh yeah, and she found the call to prayer ‘sexy’.

And that pretty much justifies adding the “stranger than fiction” category to this post…

    Actually, Aziz – that is a real pic of her. But it’s from an episode of her TV show “A Simple Life” where she spends some time living with a Pakistani Muslim family, living as they do. She of course mocked their lifestyle somewhat, and the family was very polite if slightly annoyed with her, but in the end it was all quite harmless.
    More info below:
    “Episode 2: The Ghauri Family – Paris and Nicole trade in their designer dresses for traditional saris when they take over the responsibilities of a traditional Pakistani mom. With the patient help of their “husband” and Americanized fifteen-year-old “son,” the girls manage to dress, speak and dance like conservative Pakistani housewives…or at least their version of it. But things don’t go as well when Paris and Nicole decide to share their experiences, namely how they like to party.
    “If I had been raised by the Ghauris, I would love curry.” Paris Hilton
    “If I was part of the Ghauri family, I guess I would have less of a f**kin potty mouth. Damn those Pakistanis are not cool with the s**t talking.” Nicole Richie”

    Shahed, thats awesome. I think now that you mention it, I had heard of that episode. I remember thinking that the teenage boy was probably quite happy about the whole thing :)

    I hope Paris Hilton happy with Islam.

    A person’s Conversion to a different Religion is not a revolution to that religion
    its a revolution to that person
    Paris DOES NOT MAKE ISLAM LOOK GOOD
    ISLAM MAKES PARIS LOOK GOOD!

  • Not Ignorant

    To all of you who have been looking recently at whether Paris converted – it’s all a fake story written first in The Daily Squib, a joke newspaper that publishes FAKE stories. After everyone believed the one about Paris converting to Islam, they now published one about her converting to Buddhism (http://www.dailysquib.co.uk/entertainment/2645-paris-hilton-converts-to-buddhism.html).
    Again, before you believe anything written on the Internet, double check the source.
