The Not-So-Simple Life

Some say that before there were influencers, there was Paris Hilton. I don't know if I agree with that, because influencer culture has always existed in some form, but it can't be denied that Hilton possesses a unique kind of celebrity. Actually, that's an understatement. Those of us who were around in the nineties and … Continue reading The Not-So-Simple Life
