Paris Hilton is set to become a reggae singer.
The fledgling pop star, and budding actress, says the LP - which will also include her version of the Rod Stewart classic, ‘Do You Think I’m Sexy?’ - will be a mix of reggae and rap songs and will show the world “what she is most talented at”.
She revealed to Japanese magazine Prestige: “The whole album has so much different music on it. I like all music.
“It’s not like I only like pop or only rock. I want to have something for everybody.”
However, Paris says plucking up the courage to make an album wasn’t easy - because she had to overcome her shyness.
She said: “I have always had a voice and always known I could sing, but I was too shy to let it come out. I think that is the hardest thing you can do, to sing in front of people.
“When I finally let go and did it, I realized it is what I am most talented at and what I love to do the most.”
Paris’ reggae-influenced debut single, ‘Stars Are Blind’, will be released in June. The as yet untitled album will follow later in the year.
Both are being released on the star’s own record label, Heiress Records.
