Hilton released her debut album Paris in 2006, and its hit single "Stars Are Blind" has remained a fan-favorite song ever since. At the end of last year, she performed the track at Miley's New Year's Eve Party alongside Miley Cyrus and Sia — proving its continued relevance. She also remade the song as "Stars Are Blind (Paris' Version)" and released the updated rendition on Dec. 30.
Over the nearly 17 years since her album was released, however, Hilton has never performed a full-length concert of her own music. She's currently gearing up to do so in partnership with Absolut vodka on June 7 at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles.
The Simple Life star recently revealed to Rolling Stone that she's working on her second album. She told the outlet that she's working with hit producer Benny Blanco and considering songs sent to her by friends including Cyrus and Meghan Trainor.
