Nicole Richie: “I am black!”

Nicole Richie: “I am black!”
The Simple Life star Nicole Richie says, “I am black!” She said that in response to questions from “Norm MacDonald [who] asked what everyone wonders, but is too PC to speculate about: Nicole Richie’s skin color, as Gothamist puts it. Nicole, of course, is Lionel Richie’s daughter. Gothamist reprints the relevant portions of an interview with Paris and Nicole from E! Online. Norm asked, “Did you get in any trouble because you’re black? … I thought hillbillies didn’t care for black people.” Nicole replied, “They love me.” Meanwhile, Paris Hilton maintains that she’s not a dumbass nor a spoiled brat. “I was playing a character. I’m totally normal. I think it’s obnoxious when people demand limos or bodyguards. I eat at McDonald’s or Taco Bell. My parents always taught us to be humble. We’re not spoiled,” she tells USA TODAY.
