Celebrity Paris Hilton is joining the metaverse by launching a virtual island called “Paris World” on the gaming platform Roblox.
On New Year’s Eve, she will play an electronic set for anyone who drops by her virtual island.
Hilton’s virtual island allows visitors to explore replicas of her Beverly Hills estate and its dog mansion, stroll down a boardwalk inspired by the neon carnival wedding she and husband Carter Reum celebrated at the Santa Monica Pier earlier this year, and explore the island in a luxury sports car or Sunray yacht.

“For me, the metaverse is somewhere that you can do everything you can do in real life in the digital world,” said Hilton.
“Not everybody gets to experience that, so that’s what we’ve been working together on over the past year – giving them all my inspirations of what I want in that world.”
The celebrity is moving a step further into the metaverse, continuing the path begun with her participation in the Metaverse Festival, which ran from October 21 to October 24, 2021, and for which she was a headline artist.
