    A Guide To Paris Hilton's Music Career

    This morning TMZ leaked Paris and Lil Wayne's new song, "I Wanna Bang You." But there is SO MUCH MORE.

    2004: "Screwed"

    View this video on YouTube

    The song, written by Kara DioGuardi and Greg Wells, was pitched to both Paris and Haylie Duff and soon they both gave interviews in which they claimed ownership of the song. Duff was then dropped by Hollywood Records so the song could belong to Paris. (The performance above shows the justice she did the tune.) Here's a sample of the lyrics:

    Since I'm already screwed
    Here's a message to you
    My heart's wide open
    I'm just not getting through to the lover in you
    Yet I'm still hoping
    That tonight, tonight, you're gonna turn down the lights
    And give me a little more room just to prove it to you
    What do I gotta do?

    2006 brought us "Paris," the self-titled album from Warner Music.

    There were songs such as "Turn It Up,"

    Can you gimme that feeling
    When I lose my clothes
    You like that, don't cha?
    Let's get exposed
    Cause you know you want to.

    "Jealousy,"

    I only wanted what was best for you
    Everything I did, I did because I cared
    So how did all the good between us turn so bad?
    Maybe someday we'll get back, what we had.

    "Nothing in This World,"

    In which she grinds all over a teenage boy in his bed and then helps him to become popular, I think? I don't know. It's a very confusing video.

    Baby, you and I, we got what will never be
    You know I'm right
    So tell me what you're waiting for when you're here with me?
    Most guys would die

    "Fightin' Over Me," featuring Jadakiss and Fat Joe

    Every time I turn around the boys fighting over me
    Every time I step out the house they want to fight over me
    Maybe cause I'm hot hot today and I'm so so so sexy
    All the boys all the silly boys they want to fight over me

    "Heartbeat"

    "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy," (yes, a cover of the Rod Stewart song)

    and the best of the bunch, "Stars Are Blind."

    Her biggest hit had some fantastic lyrics too:

    If you show me real love baby
    I'll show you mine
    I can make it nice and naughty
    Be the devil and angel too
    Got a heart and soul and body
    Let's see what this love can do

    January 2008: "Paris for President"

    View this video on YouTube

    While it was admirable that she advocated for gay marriage, the rest of the song's lyrics left a lot to be desired:

    When they tell you bout my policies
    To stop the player hating on the USA
    nuclear nonproliferation and ratify Kyoto today
    You can light in the motorcade in my hyper pink Escalade

    Paris for President!
    Not another oldie cliche
    Paris for President!
    You can get married if you're straight or if you're gay

    If you're gonna put lipstick on a pig
    Make sure that shit it matches your skin tone
    You can trust me with my finger on the button (nucular)
    is a vocabulary don't
    Trading in the cabinet for a walk in closet

    Waterboarding is torture and global warming is totally not hot
    I'll make a department called the fashion police,
    Boost the economy with all of the new jobs
    Make over lady liberty in Donna, Tommy and Calvin Klein

    Paris for President!

    September 2008: "My BFF"

    View this video on YouTube

    A song she presumably recorded for as introductory theme music for her MTV reality show Paris Hilton's My New BFF. (If you happen to enjoy awful reality television it's worth watching .)

    All of my life I've been waiting for someone to trust
    Someone who cares, someone who knows that would always be there
    Someone who always would tell me the truth
    Even when it's the hard thing to do
    Could you be the one I want?
    My best friend

    Because she's a VIP (duh).

    2011: "Jailhouse Baby"

    View this video on YouTube

    Otherwise known as the song she wrote about her time spent in jail:

    Cold nights and freezing water, Fluorescents always on,
    Stuck here behind this glass, My parents see their daughter,
    Judge you're no celebrity; You're a desperate wannabe,
    Service you'd rather leave, Real criminals on the streets.

    Hand cuffs and Coco cream, Notes slipped right under my door,
    Look at me caught in this cage, Just like an animal,
    Like a public enemy, make a mockery out of me,
    How dangerous can I be? I'm just a jailhouse baby.

    2011: "Crave"

    I'm little mrs. missing you
    My eyes have never been so blue
    I want you to come home your the missing link
    Our hearts are gonna beat in perfect sync
    I crave you tonight

    2012: "I Need You"

    View this video on YouTube

    Earlier this year Paris uploaded a few snippets of songs that would come out on an album later in 2012...which we have heard nothing about yet. Still, what a treat:

    I wanna put the happy in your birthday
    And I wanna be the merry in your Christmas
    I'm always giving thanks for you on every Thanksgiving
    Sure as the sun will rise I need you
    I wanna be the bunny In your Easter
    And I wanna kiss you every New Year's Eve

    February 2012: "Drunk Text"

    Via nydailynews.com

    Paris Hilton's foray into spoken word/club music was truly something — and yet, it was taken off of the internet almost immediately after it debuted:

    It was just a drunk text, in my head I was writing a fiction of us.
    Behind my eyes I was begging for things that my lips would never ask.
    My mouth kept pouring desperate calls with random intent.
    He asked me if he could text me later.
    "I'm too lazy to type, so I sent a photo I took up a dancer's skirt and I tell him to come and get it.

    May 2012: "Louder," featuring Flo Rida

    And we don’t care where you party
    People move your bodies
    And we keep it rocking
    Pull it, pull it
    DJ play it louder, louder

    2012: Paris Hilton's DJ Career

    Paris' new career as a DJ didn't go over so well with audiences, and she was even booed off the stage. Still, she played various sets all over the globe.

    But she still managed to debut her new single "Last Night," featuring Afrojack:

    It's dubstep.

    In October 2012 she started to post song clips, like "Girl Tax," to her YouTube page again.

    They have to pay the Girl Tax

    She also appeared in video for Kim Jang Hoon's "Nothing" in October:

    She didn't sing a word in this one, though.

    Keep it classy, Paris!
