Britain's ITV has hired Paris Hilton to perform red-carpet duties at the Feb.
15 Brit Awards, the country's top music awards ceremonies. Hilton, who famously
indicated recently that she was not aware that London was in the U.K., will
receive $175,000 for the gig, according to Wednesday's edition of the London
Daily Mirror. Since producers of the awards show have anticipated that
Hilton will not recognize many of the British rock musicians, "ITV bosses have
hired a lackey who's sole job is to steer her towards all the rock 'n' roll
stars attending the biggest night in the musicbiz calendar," the Mirror
reported. "She'll be there to gossip with celebs, talk to them about what
they're wearing and how much they're looking forward to the night."
