Rod Stewart has praised Paris Hilton - insisting she is very "polite".
The singer has described Paris - who is a good friend of his daughter Kimberly - as an "extremely polite" girl and nothing like the hellraiser she is often made out to be.
He told US TV chat show host Ellen DeGeneres: "I've always found Paris to be extremely polite, at least she is when she's around me. She's a very nice girl. I think sometimes she gets a bad rap."
The 61-year-old rocker has also offered Paris a piece of advice - to stay away from the paparazzi.
He said: "She enjoys her publicity. But she'll grow out of it, I think. When she finds the right guy in her life she'll get everything in perspective and leave the press alone, and the press will leave her alone hopefully."
