Paris Hilton Remembers The Time She & Britney Spears 'Invented The Selfie'


Paris Hilton gave new meaning to flashback Friday when the media mogul shared a 14-year-old shot of her and Britney Spears.

On Friday (November 20), Hilton took to social media to share the throwback alongside the Princess of Pop, which sees the two offering glowing smiles. "14 years ago, @britneyspears and I invented the selfie," she captioned the photo, which was taken around the time that the two started hanging out in 2007 and way before selfies were a thing.

Back in September, Hilton revealed that the pair still see each other occasionally and were at the same dinner this summer in Malibu. Asked her thoughts on Spears' highly controversial conservatorship, which has been the subject of the ongoing #FreeBritney movement, she said she wants her old pal to have more agency over her life.

"I just love her so much and I feel like if you are an adult you should be able to live your life and not be controlled," Hilton told Andy Cohen. "I think that maybe stems from me being controlled so much so I can understand how that would feel and I can't imagine right now if that was still happening to me. After just working your whole life and working so hard, she's this icon and I just feel like she has no control of her life whatsoever and I just don't think that's fair...I never like to bring up negative things and make people feel uncomfortable, so I've never talked about it with her."
