Hilton 'sucks face' with MySpace CEO

At last, the Paris IT angle

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

We're obliged to the New York Post for this week providing a much-needed, albeit tenuous, connection between the galactically-talented Paris Hilton and the wonderful world of IT.

According to this report, the blonde budding artist last year hooked up with MySpace CEO Chris DeWolfe, and was over the weekend spotted hanging out with him at the Sundance film festival - described by the Post as now reduced to "a week full of D-listers making fools of themselves".

Having spent some time chilling in the "MySpace Cafe", the pair were "later seen sucking face at a party". A MySpace lackey reportedly said: "We don't comment on executives' personal lives."

The Post also reports that Sundance witnessed Hilton dump her New Best Friend - one Brittany Flickinger who won MTV's My New BFF challenge to win the eternal affections of the flighty amateur porn flick starlet.

Paris's MySpace presence appears to confirm the shock news, linking to MTV's sober account of the divorce. No matter, though, because Paris has no fewer than 195,167 other friends forever on MySpace to choose from, including former lifelong love Benji Madden.

Among the other Sundance highlights was the confrontation between a security guard and singer Robin Thicke, who has evidently been taking lessons from Naomi Campbell and screamed at the hapless bouncer: "Don't you know who I am?" Aficionados of obstreperous VIP behaviour will be aware that this line appears on page one of The Sir Elton John Guide to Public Etiquette. ®
