*Timing, as they say, is everything.

In the wake of an alleged statement from 1999 by socialite/heiress Paris Hilton that she “can’t stand black guys. I would never touch one,” comes word that she recently did an interview with a very high profile rapper who is yes, black!

Here’s what she wrote on her blog:

So excited to read the interview I did with Lil’ Wayne’ in the new (April) Interview Magazine. I really enjoyed interviewing him. He was so polite, friendly, smart and sweet. So talented and passionate with his love for music. I am such a huge fan! I Love Lil Wayne!!
