I’ve penned a new column up at Counter Cultured today called “Communism is So Not Hot, Paris Hilton.”
Below is an excerpt:
Paris Hilton is partying with Cuban communists? That’s so not hot!
Hilton hotel heiress and celebrity Paris Hilton recently vacationed in Cuba. This comes after the Obama administration announced its intention to bolster diplomatic ties between our two countries, while easing restrictions on travel and exports. Hilton isn’t the only American celebrity to visit Cuba. Singer Beyonce Knowles and rapper husband Jay-Z went to Cuba in April 2013 to commemorate their wedding anniversary.
Most notably, Hilton posted selfies with Fidel Castro Diaz-Balart-son of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro-at a gala event with Naomi Campbell. She also posted, “Posing in front of the original “Habana Hilton Hotel” that my great grandfather Conrad opened here in 1958.” She called communist Cuba “beautiful” and “unique.”
