Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton likes to be the first to try cool new things, even if she has to make it up. Last year, Hilton was asked about the hybrid Yukon SUV (a huge beast of a vehicle that gets a whopping 21 mph city/22 highway) she had recently bought. She replied that hybrids were awesome and everyone should buy one. She went on to brag that she had purchased the first one. GM later said the company had no idea what Paris was talking about; many Yukon SUVs were sold before Paris got her ride. She didn't take the time to clarify, so we're left to conclude that it was simply Paris being Paris — or at least the Paris she chooses to play. (I've always thought she's actually smarter than she lets on.) Paris probably offset any small measure of good of driving the marginally more efficient Yukon by jetting her assistant off to Tokyo later that day to get sushi.
