Paris to Get Gnarly?

Well, it's an appropriate choice. Hotel heiress and tabloid magnet Paris Hilton is reportedly delaying the release of her already much-delayed debut album, Paris is Burning, to see if she can get permission to record a cover version of Gnarls Barkley's hit tune, "Crazy."
A lot of people have been calling Paris crazy for a long time anyway, and not just because she has the audacity to release a full album with no prior music experience, (unless you count a vocal she lended to a 2004 dance club anthem called "Screwed"). But hey -- with money like Hilton's, you can always buy the best, and her album will reportedly feature production work and guest appearances from the likes of Lil Jon, Three 6 Mafia, Nick Carter and Scott Storch.
It remains to be seen, however, whether the songwriting services of Gnarls duo Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo can be as easily bought. They reportedly turned down a multimillion dollar offer from McDonald's to use "Crazy" in one of their burger-peddling campaigns.
