Paris' business ambition
09:30 04 May 2005
Paris Hilton says she is giving up her wild lifestyle to concentrate on being a serious businesswoman.
The 'Simple Life' star claims she is ready to turn her back on her partying days and shake off her spoilt hotel heiress reputation to make it on her own.
She said: "I'm glad I got the partying out of my system when I was young. Now I'm trying to build an empire. I don't want to be this Hilton hotel girl all my whole life. I want to make my own name."
Meanwhile, Paris - who is currently dating Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis - claims she earns between £150,000 and £200,000 for personal appearances.
The sexy blonde insists she can earn the enormous sums for just 20 minutes work, and even more if she attends an event in Japan.
She said: "If it's in Japan, I get more."
