The US Open has, so far, given us some monumental moments, like 18-year-old Emma Raducanu’s win—but it also saw noughties icon Paris Hilton do something truly iconic, and we’re not sure we’ll ever get over it.
If you missed it, Paris Hilton, who has a new cooking show on Netflix, attended the US Open with her fiance Carter Reum. While they watched, her very own song, ‘Stars are blind’ began to play and in true icon style, Paris sang along to the classic bop and danced—and we would just formally like to thank whoever was in control of the music.
Paris even shared the clip to her Instagram captioning it: “Love that they played my song #StarsAreBlind at the 🎾 @USopen 💫✨😍❤️ It was such an #iconic moment hearing it played in the giant stadium with my fiancé. 🥰🎶 #LovesIt #USTAfoundation ✨💫💿”

Fans went wild for the nostalgic moment, one commented on her post: “That’s my songgg till this day! 😍”
Another said: “The song remains ICONIC to this day ❤️❤️❤️”
And a third wrote: “My national anthem 🔥” One fan even said on Twitter, that Paris was the real winner of the US Open—and we feel that.
Even Vanessa Hudgens commented calling her an Icon and Paris’ fiance Carter wrote: “Longest and best jumbotron dance ever!” The video now has over one million likes and thousands of comments.
Paris released the track back in 2006 and it featured on her self-titled album, Paris. The song reached No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has remained in the hearts of millennials everywhere.
The song was also recently featured in the movie ‘Promising Young Woman’ starring Carrey Mulligan. The writer and director, Emerald Fennell, told Entertainment Weekly (opens in new tab): “It's one of my favorite songs. I needed a song for this movie that, if a boy that you liked knew every word to, you'd be incredibly impressed, and you'd know he had good taste. It's a brilliant song, it's one of my ultimate bops."
