The OG influencer Paris Hilton has continued her crusade into the Metaverse, saying that she sees it as the “future of partying, going out, interacting with people, and being social”.
On Jan. 25, Hilton appeared as a guest on the ‘Tonight Show’ with Jimmy Fallon, where she spoke about her experiences in the NFT community.
Hilton told Falon that she will be dropping her first NFT collection with Super Plastic on the Origin protocol “soon,” but didn’t give any further details regarding a timeframe. Super Plastic is a vinyl toy and digital collectibles company.
She revealed the collection to audience members entitled “Forever Fairytale,” a collage of memories with her newly-wed husband Carter Reum. She then gifted the first NFT in the collection to Falon, and additional NFTs to each member of the audience.

Although this will be her first collection, it’s far from her first foray into the NFT space. In April 2021, Hilton sold her “Iconic Crypto Queen” NFT for $1.1 million.
In a Nov. 2021 interview with The Guardian, Hilton said that she began investing in crypto during 2016 when she “became friends with the founders of Ethereum.” Since then, she’s amassed an admirable NFT collection of 141 pieces, including a Bored Ape and works by Grimes and Steve Aoki.
