Rod Stewart is urging Paris Hilton to put her party girl ways behind her following news of her arrest in Las Vegas on a cocaine possession charge.
Stewart's daughter Kimberly was once close friends with Hilton, and the two girls spent a lot of time together enjoying the Hollywood social scene.
The Maggie May hitmaker insists the socialite needs to change her ways and "give up the drugs", and he hopes her brush with the law in Sin City on Friday (27Aug10) helps her realise her mistakes.
He tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, "She's a lovely girl. She was friends with Kimberley but I don't think they see each other anymore. I've always found her tremendously polite and very respectful, but, you know, it's time to move on perhaps, give up the drugs.
"There's other things, you don't need them. She's a beautiful girl. We've all done it, but I've never been a druggie sort of person so I've always been against it."
Hilton and her boyfriend Cy Waits were driving down the Las Vegas strip when their car was pulled over by police. Waits was arrested on suspicion of DUI and Hilton was later charged felony possession of a controlled substance after a bag of white powder fell out of her bag in front of cops.
