Paris Hilton does not need an introduction, but she does deserve one. The 37-year-old who was once known as the glamour girl heiress of the Hilton empire has become much more. Not only had she redefined celebrity, created a TV genre, and started a business empire, she is now taking on the world of virtual reality with Germany-based producer of products and services for the VR market, Staramba.
Before she made it big on television with the hit reality tv show The Simple Lifealong with Nicole Richie, she was a model in her native New York. After the show concluded, she was involved in many pursuits, including the penning of New York Times Best seller Confessions of an Heiress, making music as well as running product lines ranging from shoes to fragrances, to mention only a few.
According to Moneyish, which ran a feature on Hilton in February, “there’s a beach club branded after her in the Philippines.” In addition, she is “reportedly the world’s best paid female DJ, with compensation of as much as $1 million a gig.”
Despite all of her efforts in multiple realms, she is incredibly excited about virtual reality. “Hilton fell in love with the possibilities of virtual reality after meeting in China with industry leaders five years ago,” Moneyish reported, adding that she “endorsed a VR headset from Taiwanese electronics brand HTC.” Moneyish also revealed that Hilton is working with a team in the tech industry from Germany on a Paris Hilton-branded social media network based in the VR world.
