Paris Hilton's come a long ways since her party girl days!
The blonde beauty recently chatted with the U.K.'s Telegraph, where she had a lot to say about her very public trials and tribulations.
"If people want to be mean, that's their problem," she said of her haters. "It used to be really hurtful. I would call and cry to my mom all the time but now I just laugh."
But, the "Come Alive" singer says she's ready to move past that whole sex tape scandal and drop friends who just use her to "be someone."
Before the DJ started venturing out on her own endeavors, Hilton found fame when a sex tape filmed with her then-boyfriend Rick Salomon hit the web in 2004.
"It was devastating because that was someone I was with for a few years," she explained, referring to the scandal. "I don't think I'll ever be able to fully trust any man again after that. It was just the most hurtful and awful thing that anyone could do to a little girl. I was very young, it wasn't my fault."
The 33-year-old is also cutting ties with friends who seem to use her for their own goals of fame. Perhaps that's why she doesn't talk to Kim Kardashian anymore?
"So many people have bad intentions, so many girls want to hang out to be someone," she revealed. "I weed those people out of my life. I call them hungry tigers."
It seems like the heiress' life has come full circle, though. She's been in a solid relationship with River Viiperi for the past few years and wants to settle down soon.
"I had the most amazing childhood," she said. "My parents have been together since my mom was 15. In Hollywood almost everyone's divorced. My friends would come to my house and see this perfect family and I realized how lucky I was. Now, when I'm looking for a guy, I'm always thinking of someone who is like my dad: a loyal person with a good heart, because that's all that matters in life."
