Paris Hilton Tried To Say She And Britney Spears Invented The Selfie

The socialite of yesteryear, Paris Hilton, likes to take credit for a lot of the shit we do/endure these days. For instance, we can blame her for “That’s hot,” the annoying AF celeb inundation at Coachella, and Kim Kardashian. So it only makes sense that Paris is trying to take claim for another invention that isn’t exactly hers.

Paris tweeted the above picture with the delusional claim she and Britney Spears were responsible for the selfie when they took that pic back in 2006. Peroxide blonde extensions paired with a drunk skunk gaze? Sure, they can have that one. Selfie? Eh, not so much. The New York Daily News says the first selfie was actually taken waaaaay back in 1839 by a dude named Robert Cornelius. Paris even tried to lay claim to the selfie back in May when she sat down with W Magazine:

“If a beeper had a camera, I would have taken a selfie with it. I think I have a selfie from when I was a little kid, like on a disposable camera.”

Paris saying she invented the selfie is about as believable as her saying she was the first celebrity DJ. Even the term “selfie” came well before the Paris/Brit photo. Back in 2002, some Aussie used it while being that asshole who takes a photo of a nasty injury (he split his lip) and shares it with friends. A few Tweeters were happy to educate Paris on who else took a photo of themselves before she and Brit Brit did:

Sorry Paris, but Sabrina the Teenage Witch is easily the most glamorous subject of all early selfies!

    You should hear her gush over her latest ‘flavor of the month’ boyfriend. She claims this is the ‘one’. How could any man put up with such a vapid narcissistic vain and babyish woman? He must be in it for the fame and fortune. Mr Paris Hilton will be his claim to fame. Her poses are embarrassing.

  2. Dürer was such a hipster.

  3. Alexander C. Skitch

    Probably, but maybe a little earlier? He apparently was gifted this camera in the mid-50s.

    MK….Remember when? https://uploads.disquscdn.c

  5. Funny, I have what looks to be the exact same camera, and I’ve taken a similar selfie with it!

  6. “I invented Post-its!”

  7. WONKY MCVALTREX 4NEVA!

  8. Top Bananana

    wait we’re not still calling her wonky mcvaltrex because that’s what i read in my head

  9. Paris’ belt is representing her wonk eye, or I’ve had too much to drink.

  10. This would be the early 60s?

  11. I read that as ‘stains’, and I quite agree lol!

  12. Monkeys eyes match, and its not using blue contacts. already an improvement to any pic Paris had taken.

  13. She should go back in for being beastly to her dogs.

  14. It’s like we all tossed out a used up, diseased cheap ass barbie copy doll, and the cat dragged it back in and it won’t go :/ Like a nightmare toy story lmao

  15. She will never get married. She’s perpetually 16 years old in her head. Can just see her if anyone suggested it. ‘Ew!’.

  16. It’s getting worse as she ages. It’s like she has 2 different people’s eyes atm.

  17. LOLOL I knew a nutter once who was always claiming he invented things. He’d sit in this remote pub in Cornwall, England, spouting things to visitors like, ‘I invented the fishfinger’ or ‘I invented sausage skin’ or ‘I invented the pearl necklace’. And they always seemed to believe him. lmfao.

  18. I never understood why people thought she was attractive, I always thought she looked like a crazed, gangly ostrich. She looks more and more like her mother every year. See they still haven’t fixed her wonky eye from the botched surgery. I miss MK calling her Wonky McValtrex lol. According to Blind Gossip, she’s horribly racist among other things. Got no time for her.

  19. LOL! I love that. I thought I was imagining it at first haha. I love it’s called “harry professor” too lmao.

  20. I’d never seen her before, but yeah, she’s a perfectly cute gal.

    Dis bitch… I’m happy she’s mostly irrelevant nowadays. We got the K-trash, but at least we ain’t got her.

  22. I still think this little fella would be a step up from many media personalities we have today.

    Hell, give him Megyn Kelly’s timeslot on Today.

  23. More like the beginning of Parasite’s end!

  24. NO NO NO goddammit…

    Not the SELFIE… the SELFISH

    Huge difference.

  25. Please and Thank You

    Those teef tho?
