Some things are per­ma­nent. Like tattoos, as Stel­lar colum­nist David Camp­bell would at­test. Oth­ers are far more fleet­ing – such as re­al­ity-tv fame, as this week’s cover star could also at­test. Once the un­ri­valled em­bod­i­ment of the pe­cu­liar achieve­ment of be­ing famous for be­ing famous, Paris Hil­ton has all but dis­ap­peared in re­cent years, su­per­seded by the likes of her one-time ap­pren­tice, Kim Kar­dashian. That’s about to change, with the now 35-year-old headed to Aus­tralia next month to spritz her lat­est fra­grance ven­ture as part of the grow­ing em­pire the self-de­scribed busi­ness­woman tells Stel­lar has over­taken celebrity as her life’s chief pur­pose. It’s easy to scoff, but it’s an un­ex­pect­edly poignant ad­mis­sion when Hil­ton re­veals she even­tu­ally hopes to have a fam­ily as she be­lieves that’s “the mean­ing of life”. Is it re­ally the se­cret to hap­pi­ness? Maybe Den­mark could tell us.

Here’s a hint: it has noth­ing to do with fleet­ing re­al­ity-tv fame.
