WTF: Lil' Wayne Covers Interview, Gets Interviewed By...Paris Hilton!

Lil' Wayne is no stranger to NYC, having spent 8 months imprisoned in Riker's Island. So inmates will have some interesting reading material courtesy of Interview magazine, whose April cover features none other than the rapper interviewed by...Paris Hilton. Yes, you read that right. The match-up provides an bizarre return to the headlines for the platinum-haired socialite, who presumably has been opening nightclubs in Dubai since her run-ins with Marijuana. Speaking of pot, perhaps the pairing is not too weird—Lil Wayne has been caught with the green stuff more than once, plus they're both experts on jail cell chic.
Here are our favorite quotes:
HILTON: What’s the most bizarre thing that you’ve ever read about yourself?
WAYNE: The most bizarre thing I’ve ever read about myself is that I was dead. That was kind of weird to read that I’m dead— mostly because I was reading it. [both laugh]
HILTON: I read that about myself once, too. It’s pretty bizarre.
Lil' Wayne and Paris Hilton on solitary confinement:
WAYNE: For me it was okay, because it just meant that I was alone with my thoughts.
HILTON: I had to do 24 nights in solitary. [Hilton was held in a separate cell as a safety precaution.]
WAYNE: Oh, so you know how it is.
HILTON: Yeah, I know how it is.
HILTON: How happy are you to have your freedom now?
WAYNE: Words cannot explain.
HILTON: Yeah, I know how you feel. [laughs] It’s the best feeling in the world when you come out.
HILTON: Do you have any pets?
WAYNE: I like animals, but I only have a few pets. I have a bunch of fish, and I have two sharks. Those are my dudes.
HILTON: Wow. Sharks? Nice.
EHRLICH: How big are the sharks?
WAYNE: One is a little baby, so he’s about a foot or two, or something like that. Then the other one is a good two, two and a half feet, or almost three feet.
EHRLICH: So do you have a huge pool for them? Or do they stay in a tank?
WAYNE: They live in a crib…It’s like a little pond under the stairwell in my house. So they swim under there.
HILTON: That’s dope.
WAYNE: I wanna ask you something, Paris. When are you dropping your album?
HILTON: When am I dropping the album?
WAYNE: Yeah. Do you know?
HILTON: Hopefully soon. I’ve been working on it for so long—since my last album [Paris, 2006, Warner Bros.]. So I want to release it by this summer, because I have a lot of summer bangers. I want to just have it out, because that’s when people love to party.
WAYNE: That’s cool.
HILTON: If I had you on a song too, that would be hot.
WAYNE: That was gonna be my next question. I was gonna ask you, how are you gonna release an album and don’t get me on it?
HILTON: Well, if you would be on the album, then I would be honored. That would be the sickest thing. We should get each other’s phone numbers so we can call each other after the interview or text or something.
WAYNE: Cool. Sounds good.
HILTON: My number is 310-XXX-XXXX.
WAYNE: Okay. I’ll text you my number.
Interview's April issue will hit newsstands in NYC and L.A. today; Lil' Wayne will be taking over Interview's website from today until March 30th.
