Paris Hilton is adamant her image as a fun-loving party girl is not real - insisting she is paid to attend most social events.
The hotel heiress is regularly pictured out and about at nightclubs, both in the U.S. and during her many trips abroad.
But Hilton claims that in reality she is very different to her socialite persona - and only goes to events because she will collect a paycheque at the end of the evening.
She says, "When they see me at parties, I am actually getting paid to be there. There is no such thing as bad publicity."
