While the pair may seem like the ultimate odd couple, Hilton and Wayne actually have a lot in common. They love to club, Amsterdam, and were both in prison. Hilton gets a little help in her interview from Interview music editor, Dmitri Ehrlich, but most of the best questions are all from the imagination of Hilton herself.
Like what? What Lil Wayne dreams about, what his astrological sign is, and whether he has pets.

On whether or not he always wanted to be a rapper:
PARIS HILTON: I know that you grew up in New Orleans. Did you always know you were going to be a rapper?
LIL WAYNE: I starting rapping when I was 8 years old, so I think when you’re into something at such a young age like that . . . I mean, nobody in the world could have told me I wasn’t gonna be a rapper. So, yeah, I always knew I was gonna be one.
EHRLICH: Who did you look up to when you were 8 years old? Who inspired you to want to be a rapper?
WAYNE: The guys I’m with right now, Cash Money Records. They were pretty big locally in New Orleans and so I always just looked up to them. I mean, they were Cash Money Records way before everybody knew their name, and what I mean by that is that the power they have now, they had then, but just locally in the city. So they were always big. I listened to all their music. That’s probably why I wanted to be with them.
