In the trailer for her new YouTube documentary, This is Paris, Paris Hilton talks about being "Paris Hilton" and says:
"the whole world thinks they know me..."
Paris say she doesn't even feel like she knows herself sometimes.
Hilton says in the trailer:
"I'm so used to like playing a character that it's hard for me be normal,"
She also mentions an unexplained childhood trauma and gets pretty emotional.
"Something happened in my childhood that I've never talked about with anyone,"
Her sister, Nicky Hilton Rothschild says,
"I just heard screaming bloody murder."
Paris states she couldn't tell her family because:
"every time I tried, I would get punished by them."
"I still have nightmares about it. The only thing that saved my sanity was thinking about who I wanted to become when I got out of there, ... I just created this brand and this persona and this character and I've been stuck with her ever since."
The documentary can be seen on YouTube on September 14th.
