Kim Petras Joins Paris Hilton for "Stars Are Blind (Paris' Version)"

The gods remain crazy and the stars continue to be blind

Paris Hilton's reggae-lite "Stars Are Blind" has held strong as a beloved Girls-and-Gays anthem for nearly two decades now, the kind of candy-floss cultural item that helps smooth over the less savoury aspects of Hilton's whole ultra-wealthy, politically murky deal. 

It is, admittedly, a much better song than Hilton needed to release in 2006, and its staying power is a reflection of that irrepressible ear-worm pull. Lots of people love it, and one of those people is Kim Petras, who's been a friend of Hilton's for quite some time now. 

In celebration of that fandom/friendship, Hilton has teamed up with Petras for "Stars Are Blind (Paris' Version)" (lmao), a largely faithful re-recording of the song that has slightly beefed up production and some guest vocals by Petras. 

Petras covered "Stars Are Blind" solo in 2020 as part of a Stonewall Gives Back livestream, and the song also soundtracked a scene in Promising Young Woman that same year. 

The new version ends with Petras singing, "I love you, Paris! You're that bitch!" Listen to it below.
