Lil Wayne And Paris Hilton Talk Music, Paparazzi And Prison

During a conversation for Interview magazine, Lil Wayne and Paris Hilton swap stories about the price of fame and being locked up in solitary confinement.

Interview magazine has a tradition of letting celebrities interview each other with mixed results. Pharrell Williams once interviewed the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, and more recently, Kanye West interviewed Rihanna for the November, 2010 issue. For the current April issue, Dimitri Ehrlich oversaw Paris Hilton as she posed a series of questions to Lil Wayne.

The billionaire heiress opened up the interview by asking Wayne about his upbringing and his motivation for becoming a rapper before finding what she deemed more common ground.

“I had to do 24 nights in solitary,” Hilton told Lil Wayne, when the subject of prison was brought up. “Oh, so you know how it is,” Wayne replied. And, in what may have been his most entertaining exchange since Wayne told Katie Couric, “I’m a gangsta, Miss Katie,” Hilton replied, “Yeah, I know how it is.”

Hilton was sentenced to 45 days in jail in 2007 due to an alcohol-related reckless driving case used incarceration as common ground. Wayne spent nine months in Rikers Island in 2010 for a weapons possession charge. The pair also covered topics of Paparazzi and tabloids, with both stars being amused by rumors of their own deaths.

“The only time I ever really witnessed some crazy paparazzi was during my court experiences,” Wayne said. “Every time I rode up to court, as soon as I jumped out of the truck, they were there to snap, and all in our way to where we couldn't walk. It's nowhere near like that around here. But maybe I'm just not that caliber of person that they want to take pictures of me like that.”

In addition to them both being fans of the popular Miami nightclub LIV, Hilton added that she loved Wayne’s Rock/Alt album, The Rebirth. Aside from the randomness of the pairing, the Q&A between Weezy and Paris may or may not temporarily deflect best selling author Neil Strauss’ claim that Hilton refuses to date black men because of her feelings about their hygeine. In Strauss’ book, Everyone Loves You When You’re Dead, he quotes Hilton as allegedly saying, “I can’t stand black guys. I would never touch one. It’s gross.”
