Head Of The Class

In recent weeks, I've commented extensively on how happy and proud I am that Britney Spears has made a successful bid to clean up her act, to get her life back on track and to bring an end to the dangerous and trashy behavior that she had been engaged in (and that was essentially killing her). I've lately come to see that Paris Hilton, yes the Paris Hilton, has kind of done the same thing. Ever since she started her relationship with Benji Madden of Good Charlotte (a relationship that I, honestly, never envisioned in the first place), Paris has stayed out of the party scene and has settled down ... a lot. I'm not sure it really hit me how much Paris has changed her ways until most recently ... check out these photos of Paris doing her best Jackie O. impersonation (sans the faboo pillbox hat) as she made her way out of a store this week:

You know, I really feel that much of the credit for the new Paris goes to Benji Madden. He is, very honestly, one of the coolest guys you'll ever meet. He's not about the Hollywood bullshizz, he's not about hitting all the trendy hotspots ... he's just a down guy who keeps it real. Paris is very lucky to have him in her life ... and maybe that is why she's changed her behavior for the better. I really hope we get to see more of this new and improved Paris Hilton. She's quite a sight for sore eyes. [Source]
