Interview magazine requested the help of Paris Hilton to interview rapper Lil Wayne. As the magazine explains, they both love music, clubs and have done hard time — which is exactly what they bonded over!
Paris took time from filming her new reality show, The World According to Paris, to chat with Lil Wayne over the phone for Interview with help from contributing music editor, Dimitri Ehrlich.
“While you were in prison you released another album, called I Am Not A Human Being,” Paris asked Lil Wayne. “What does that title mean?”
“It’s just saying that I’m not the same as other people,” he explained. “I don’t think the same. I don’t do the same things. I just feel out of this world sometimes.”
“I was reading that during your last month in prison, they put you in solitary confinement for having an iPod or something like that,” Dimitri said. “I’ve heard that being in solitary is the most torturous thing in the world. What was that like for you?”
“For me it was okay, because it just meant that I was alone with my thoughts,” Lil Wayne explained. “There were times when it was pretty tough to be by yourself, and to have no television, no sort of nothing. That was kind of tough. But I didn’t have to be in there long. It was just a month. I was okay. I did fine.”
“I had to do 24 nights in solitary,” Paris said.
“Oh, so you know how it is,” Lil Wayne replied.
“Yeah, I know how it is,” she said. “How happy are you to have your freedom now?”
“Words cannot explain,” he said.
“Yeah, I know how you feel,” Paris said with a laugh. “It’s the best feeling in the world when you come out.”
