A Showbiz Stupidity interview with the creator of this musical masterpiece, Mr. Smith, after the jump!
Showbiz Stupidity: Paris Hilton bothers a lot of people, but few are inspired enough to record a song about her. What exactly is it about Paris that caused the formation of “The OK Go Away Paris Hilton Apparatus”?
Mr. Smith: I just can’t stand her, and it finally reached the point where I thought I would write a song about how much I can’t stand her! Did I mention that I can’t stand her? I think my song speaks for most of America as well!
SS: Have you heard Paris’ new album? As a musician, what does it feel like to open up Billboard and see that Paris Hilton’s album came in at #6, “the highest debut for a new solo female pop artist this year”?
MS: I think it should have debuted at #1. With the money she spent on that album, I think it is inexcusable that it didn’t do better. If I had that amount of money to put into an album, it would debut at #1.
SS: Will there be a follow-up song or will your inaugural hit be the only one? Are you planning on lampooning other celebrities or is Paris the only one?
MS: Sad to say, this will probably be my only song before I vanish into obscurity. But watch out, Lindsay Lohan, ’cause you’ve become almost as annoying as Paris!
SS: If Paris would happen to read this interview, what would you like to say to her?
MS: I’ll bet you your family fortune that you can’t go on live TV and perform any of the songs on your album without pulling an Ashlee Simpson.
SS: Finally, if you had to choose between spending a day with Paris Hilton or getting stabbed in the testes with a rusty nail, which would it be?
MS: Nail, please, and fast.
