Charli XCX Calls Paris Hilton A ‘Pop Genius’

Charli XCX has been inspired by the pop culture ‘genius’ of Paris Hilton.

The 23-year-old singer-songwriter is currently penning tracks for her upcoming album, her fourth full LP.

And she found inspiration for song ideas from an unlikely source, DJ-and-heiress Paris.

‘It’s definitely the most electronic pop sound I’ve done. I’ve been really inspired by Paris Hilton, small dogs and a glitter, luxe lifestyle,’ she explained to British newspaper The Mirror.

‘I’ve never met Paris before, but we were both at the amFAR Gala during the Cannes Film Festival this year.

‘I was performing and I saw her singing along to my song and I freaked out.

‘I’m such a fan and one of my favourite songs ever is Stars Are Blind – it’s pop genius.’

Charli cancelled her tour with Jack Antonoff in order to focus on penning a plethora of new tunes, but she is not just writing for herself at the moment.

The star revealed she is also working on songs for Rihanna’s forthcoming eighth studio album.

It’s claimed Rihanna has been scrambling to find solid hits for her new offering and since Charli has written chart topping tunes for Iggy Azalea, it seemed to be a no-brainer to elicit her help.

‘I’m a really big Rihanna fan and I think she’s such an incredible artist,’ Charli gushed.

‘She’s my favourite pop girl. She’s the real deal.

‘I’ve actually been to a couple of writing sessions for Rihanna’s new record. It was really fun to put together a couple of tracks.’
