The stars might be blind, but Birdman isn’t — to Paris Hilton‘s raw talent! (It took me an hour to come up with that opening line.)

The rapper-turned-Cash Money Records co-founder opened up to The Los Angeles Times about signing the vocally gifted chanteuse: “Controversy and all of that, it works for your benefit,” he said. “[Her Cash Money deal] being so talked about shows the strength of her popularity. I’m very excited. I’m very appreciative that she’s part of the team. She’s very talented, and a beautiful young woman.”

As for her prodigious artistic talents, Birdman said, “She played us music, and I was taken aback. I was impressed by her music, and I didn’t know she could sing so well.” And the album, as promised, will satisfy house fans: “It’s on the EDM side,” he continued. “I want to let her do what she wants as an artist. We’re going to support it.”

In short: Paris Hilton is better than Adele.
