Prison-bound socialite Paris Hilton has been dropped by her record label after lackluster sales of debut pop album Paris failed to impress music execs.
The 26-year-old, who is heading to jail next week for a 23-day stint after violating her probation following a 2006 drunk-driving arrest, is said to be devastated over the decision.
The company is thought to be disappointed after investing $250,000 in a video for single “Stars Are Blind”–which reached No. 18 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 charts–and a world promotional tour that brought in less that half a million record sales.
Hilton‘s second single, “Nothing in This World,” barely registered on the charts, reaching No. 89 on the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Charts and the LP vanished after a brief appearance at No. 6 on the Billboard album charts after selling 77,000 copies.
A representative for Warner Brothers said, “We are not expecting any new Paris Hilton material in the foreseeable future.”
