Paris Hilton wins Nobel Peace prize
Paris Hilton has won the Nobel Peace prize for her role in eradicating war and poverty in Africa.
The former socialite has devoted the last ten years of her life to working in the war-torn continent after visiting Rwanda to film a reality TV show.
The dramatic turnaround followed her jail sentence for driving offences in 2007, after which she pledged to use her fame to raise awareness of good causes.
Hilton beat ex-British Prime Minister Lord Blair, who was nominated for finally bringing lasting peace between Israel and the Palestinians in his role as Middle East envoy.
She told DS: "I merely highlighted the problem. The solution was entirely down to UNESCO, the people of Africa and a proper, considered application of the Lewis economic model. It's not all to do with fiscal aberrations and macroeconomic indices - remember, behind every skewed Gini coefficient is a crying child."
The 36-year-old is expected to accept the award in the sky-blue tabbard she has worn since pledging her fortune to Médecins Sans Frontières in 2011. She has already vowed to donate the $1 million prize to the chain of Hilton Hospices she has opened across Africa.
The Nobel committee said: "We are proud to be able to give this award to Miss Hilton, who has picked up the mantle of Nelson Mandela and Mother Theresa and run with it."
Her spokesman said: "Nobody took Paris seriously when she said she was going to change her life. But after visiting Rwanda, she knew she had to make a difference. Probably it was a mistake to release an R'n'B version of 'We Are The World' surrounded by African orphans, but since then she has been almost single-handedly responsible for changing the fortunes of an entire continent."
