Paris Hilton is definitely not one to shy away from the camera and she has done everything she can think of to proclaim her love for her boyfriend of nine months now, Benji Madden, from gushing about him in interviews to wearing t-shirts that proclaim her love. And all the while, Benji has always seemed to be in the background, not really saying too much about anything. Well, you know things are serious when a rocker starts talking about love and this is what the Daily Blabber quotes him as saying,
“It’s very frustrating when you finally find yourself in a good relationship and people attack it,” he said of rumors that he cheated on his girl. “I wear my feelings on my sleeve. I’m very open about how in love I am – Paris and I are very happy.”
Benji says he’s taking a cue on love from Johnny Cash and his longtime love June Carter Cash.
“I read this Johnny Cash book and it said they were never were apart for more than four or five days,” Benji told People.com. “So when Paris and I started getting serious, I was like, ‘We shouldn’t be apart that much.’ We try not to go longer than a week without at least seeing each other for a day or two. That’s kind of our rule.”
Benji went on to say the had plans to open a tattoo parlor in Beverly Hills, but when asked if he would be inking Paris with, let’s say, an “I heart Benji” tat, he replied, “I hope not. I like her the way she is. She’s perfect. She’s the most beautiful woman in the world. She doesn’t need to change one thing.”
Aw, now I don’t care what you think about these two individually, they are a super cute couple. Maybe that’s even why I’ve started to like Paris better these days – because she’s actually interesting now! It does certainly seem as though these two have the real thing – or as real as it gets for Hollywood anyway. These two have been under heavy media fire ever since they first hooked up and Paris has been called everything from a wanna-be rock and roller to a wanna-be Nicole Richie but it really seems as though she’s created her own unique thing from this and I’m very happy for them. With all of the divorce and nastiness slung around Hollywood, it’s nice to see that some of those people actually do like each other!
