Paris Hilton is trying her hand at singing and acting again — at the same time.
The 26-year-old socialite can next be seen in the horror musical Repo! The Genetic Opera, which is due in theaters this April, and it sounds like she sure impressed her colleagues with her performance.
Choreographer Tre Armstrong, who stars in How She Move opening this weekend, tells OK!, “I was surprised that she could sing. Honest to God, I will never crack on Paris. I haven’t. From what I heard from what they did, I liked how she sounded.”
Tre’s co-star, Grammy-nominated R&B singer Keyshia Cole, echoes that sentiment.
“I like the way she sings,” she tells OK! “I do.”
But it seems like Paris could use some work in the dancing department.
“She needs development in terms of movement, but it wasn’t a dance movie,” Tre says, adding that the flick is a cross between The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Saw and Sweeney Todd.
“Let’s say you’ve got a car — a lavish car — you love it, but you can’t afford the payments but you have it anyway. [Knocks] Repo man is going to come get the car if you default on the payment. But, let’s think of it this way — I love your arm, so I’ll take your arm and put it on my arm, and get rid of this one. I love your face, so I’m going to cut my face off and put it on my face.”
She continues, “We’re all nip/tucked today, right? Everything’s nipped, tucked and shwooshed, right? Advance that fifty years and see where we’re going to go. It’s really expensive, right? You can’t afford that. [Knock, knock, knock.] Excuse me, you have our heart, you defaulted for two months on your payment? You have the money? No? I’m sorry, and they cut out your heart and take it back.”
